Well Christmas is almost here again. It's hard to believe that another year had flown by.
I hope you have all got everything sorted and are waiting for Christmas Day to arrive. I can't believe that I have everything ready six days before Christmas. I am usually dashing around at the last minute trying to find what I should give to whom. Is that right, or should it have been who? No I think I was right the first time!
But for some reason this year I have everything wrapped and ready to be dished out to friends and family at the appropriate time.
Recently, I thought it had been a while since we'd had sherry in the house, so I decided to buy a bottle ready for Christmas. However, in a weak moment I thought I had better taste it. You must understand that it was just to make sure that it was as good as I remembered it and was fit to give to anyone who called in over the festive season.
Yes, you've guessed it. We drank it all. I couldn't believe how quickly it disappeared. But after checking the bottom of the bottle to make sure there wasn't a hole, I had to admit that all those odd slurps meant that we had used it all up and needed to get another bottle! To be on the safe side, I bought two and then hid one! I only hope I remember where I put it when the time comes!
So how are you all doing with your present wrapping? I expect you are all done and dusted by now. I also think that your presents will all be wrapped much better than mine. While yours will all have been neatly wrapped with neat little ribbons tied into neat little bows, mine are stuck together with cellotape... and not at all neatly.
The ones that came in boxes are okay, it's the gifts with odd shapes that are the problem. The paper doesn't wrap around at all well and bits bulge out here there and everywhere.
I know you can buy boxes to put gifts into, which makes them easier to wrap. But, I never seem to go down that road. I usually take the road with all the twists and turns. My whole life has been one of twists and turns so why should I change now?
We are seeing my niece and her husband on Sunday. And of course our Great Nephew Christopher. He is two and a half now and growing fast. We are looking forward to seeing them all again. I hear that Christopher is really looking forward to Santa making his annual visit. I would love see him opening his presents!
Well I think that's all for the moment except to say I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year/
