I am such a big kid!
17 days and counting
looking forward to a White Crimbo so I build a snowman like I did a couple of years back!
We've finished clearing up over at Lilian's and her new shower room is looking spendid with the lino Pete fitted and she's really happy with it.
The house is clear, the old settee is gone from the garden, as is ALL the remaining wood and rubble from decorating, the tree and decorations are up and now I can concentrate and cooking up some mince pies and party nibbles I can freeze and take out as needed.
I've ordered the turkey and the lobster for the big day and got most of the shopping done.....bar DH's prezzie. He's insisting on slippers
can you believe it? No imagination
Or maybe it's just that now we are the age we are and are lucky enough to be comfortably off we have all we want/need.
He was so reluctant for the tree to go up early, but it's up. He even said not to bother with the lights around the window, but they're up too and I've seen the Christmassy Grin go over his face once or twice. Scrooge is warming
I was talking with my SIL in Canada the other day and Jackie and Vicki and it seems all our menfolk are the same. Wondering why we bother. Can't help thinking if WE didn't bother Christmas would fade into insignificance.
I think of others far less fortunate than us more than ever at this time of year and like last year have donated a place at Crisis for the homeless as has DH.
such a worthy cause.
Well that's enough ramblings, I hope your preparations are going well, if you want me I'll be slaving over a hot stove today
