Christmas planning and chat

Recommended Posts

I got all my wrapping done today. :present:  I'm trying to get as much prep done as early as possible, so that I can just enjoy my time off work over Christmas.  I don't have many people to give presents to, so it only took me a couple of hours to finish everything and tidy up afterwards, although there was glitter on one of my choices of wrapping paper and it's EVERYWHERE now! :lol:

Oh glitter gets everywhere doesn't it!  Bought another present today, and saw a couple more but didn't have time to queue up again, so will have to wait until tomorrow:present:.

I've written all of my Christmas cards and sent off the international ones. I plan to send off the Dutch ones in a week or such, they don't need as much time to get where they need to be.

We gave up doing the Christmas card thing, except for a couple of aunts. We put the tree up and the grands will be decorating their Christmas stocking sometime today. I purchased Christmas gingerbread houses and gingerbread train. I have the gingerbread tree decorations for them to do for my house.

I'm sitting here looking at my Christmas tree sitting amidst the chaos of a house in the middle of packing. I don't know why we put it up except we just wanted to have something "Christmassy" among the madness. We put it up thinking we'd not be in the new house by Christmas but we should close by next Wednesday. As the house is only 7 houses up, I may just put it on a little red wagon and drag it to the house, LMBO!!!! If you see a picture on FB of a middle aged Black lady dragging a Christmas tree up the road on a red wagon, that would be me!

I haven't done the Christmas card thing this year, been too busy with coursework. I have cards, just haven't written or posted them, and at this stage it's unlikely I will.

 

My Christmas tree is up, though, which is something. I haven't got any of my decorations in Cork, since I moved in with my partner 6 months after moving into the previous temporary house, I just had to cull so many of my belongings and last January and May Christmas decorations weren't an issue. Haven't been home to Kerry in that time so they're all still down there! OH had a tree though and some decorations, so that's up, and we've a few bits in the window and polar bears in the porch. Would like to get a wreath but time is getting on so again, dunno if I'll bother this year. Have some window snowflake stickers still to put up. Will be more organised next year as I won't be doing a course at the same time!
