Ho Ho Ho!
Thanks for popping in.
Are you all set for Christmas?
Tree all lit up and lovely?
Made all your cards?
Sent them all?
Bought all your presents?
Wrapped them and put them under the tree?
Sent gifts and cards to friends abroad in good time?
Well hoo blimmin ray!
I can add a big fat NOPE to every one of those.
Here in Barbieland, things aren’t going quite as planned.
What happened to the week in between last week and this one??
One minute I was on top of everything – the next I’m miles behind the rest of the world in the relentless march up to the 25th.
Or the 24th in our case, because we celebrate Christmas in the evening, German stylie.
But here’s where I’m at.
IT IS FINE.
It will all get done, or it won’t.
Either way, it is fine.
The kids are coming home on Sunday.
Mum and Dad are coming over for the duration.
We have beds for everyone.
And let’s look at what we HAVE done:
Christmas Star on kitchen wall (Dave)
ordered a turkey (Dave)
bought Dad’s socks (me)
bought Dave’s new guitar (Dave)
Well, there you go!
Every year we put ourselves into spin cycle.
Every year we come out the other side.
So I for one am just going with the flow
and doing the best I can given the time I have.
They say you can tell a lot about a person
by the way they tackle the tangled Christmas lights.
This is what happened last year when I was left to unravel them:
As I was saying, easy.
Love & hugs,
