Three weeks to go people (give or take a day)

NaBloWriMo - National Blog Writing Month

Woo hoo, I did it. Oh yes I did it. :) Thirty posts in Thirty days - and only the odd filling in lettuce photo amongst it.

YAY me.

But, there is NO REST for this eager blogger. Oh no siree.

Tomorrow I decorate The Tree with the help of two very small bossy people (and one very tall one). Much sugar will be consumed and probably a lot of wine.

Then its making lame presents for everyone (because we are POOR). Just raised giving second hand presents to the pre-school aged cousins with my mother - SHEESH - you would've thought I'd gaily announced I was giving them a lump of coal or a sock puppet made from one of hubby's Unwashed Socks. Ye Gods, my eyes water at the very thought.

Then there will be a great deal of baking and photos of badly glazed ham, steaming christmas puddings (on a hot day with 98% humidity) and super-saturated solutions of brandy butter.

Then there will be an obscene amount of fake snow and paper snowflakes stuck onto windows regardless of the 40+ temperature outside.

And do not forget the HORROR of school holidays starting in 17 days (not that I'm counting).

Ah its going to be good.

:)

And just whilst I'm on the subject... All I want for Christmas this year is for hubby to get a job - last year it was a tonne of dirt for my vege garden. Funny how things change.

5 people love me:

hahaha - you make horror sound fun!!
I hope you get your Christmas wish, we were there early this year with hubby and just a few weeks ago with me... stressful times. Much anti-stress compound (chocolate) consumed.

Go on give them a sock puppet!

One year I gave my niece one of those Oxfam Unwrapped gifts - a whole farmyard of animals to help a 3rd World family - my parents and brother were gobsmacked, even though I had also sent something for her to open.

Sorry to hear about your dog, it's miserable isn't it. I have had to move all the black jumpers and bags etc that are lying around looking like a sleeping cat.
