I Love Christmas But……


I love Christmas, everything about it and funnily enough all the sorting out and present buying and cooking, everything.

The only thing I don’t love is GLITTERY CHRISTMAS CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Everyone of the cards we seemed to have received this year seems to have some glitter on it somewhere!  By the time you have opened them there is glitter all over your hands, which then gets on your face, clothes etc.  Then it is all over the kitchen (where I open our cards) then on the bookshelves (where we display our cards) and everywhere in between!  Even Treacle!

So, I love receiving the Christmas cards, but please don’t send us glitter ones!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The days are moving apace now and it is the 22nd already.  Tomorrow I am cleaning the house from top to bottom, doing the final shop of fresh things and washing all the bedding, towels etc and getting them ironed and put away.  Christmas Eve I have to go and collect the bird first thing in the morning and then that is it!  We can shut the door on the World for a few days.

I hope all your planning is going well. 

Only three more sleeps!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hugs, Susie x

    Yeah, not a fan of glitter!!! I finally made it to Reno to spend Christmas with my dad – took 2 days because Monday evening, just after the sun set, there was horizontal sleet and I felt like I was ice skating in my truck – not fun! I stopped in a little town of about 200 at the only motel I knew of…totally stepped back into the 1970s!!! Orange indoor-outdoor carpeting!! Very clean, very dated with no cell service or internet!! Got up this morning to 4″ of snow on my truck and more coming down. I waited an extra hour past the time I wanted to head out, then braved the elements in four-wheel drive. Tara refused to potty in the snow (it was like a personal insult to her!). Tired tonight and went to bed early, only to have a swarm of earthquakes hit the area – they are reporting them be to between 3.0 and 4.3. It will be interesting to find out what they have to say about it tomorrow on the news. I haven’t felt an earthquake in years!
