I'm feeling festive! Almost light headed.
I've begun singing Christmas carols, and have thought about putting on our one and only Christmas carol CD - released by Myer a few years ago and has Bert Newton singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - extremely sad!
I'm not just feeling festive because there is only 4 sleeps until I go away, but because we have almost finished our Christmas present shopping. Yeehaa! I'm feeling so organised and on top of things (and modest too!)
Nev has made photo calendars for all the rellies, I have purchased a good amount of goats, vegie patches and mosquito nets through Christian Blind Missions and the children have begun making their presents for friends this week - Ellie is making "pink, peppermint, moisture rich bath bombs" and Harri is making green slime and adding plastic worms and bugs.
Their choice of presents, pretty much sums up my two children:
Ellie - pink, pretty and sweet smelling.
Harri - the yuckier, the better.
Mind you, as we were shopping for the essential ingredients for the kids' presents, a particular driver nearly erased my Christmas spirit, not to mention my existence from the face of the earth.
