Christmas Eve


Merry Christmas for tomorrow!

The past two days have been full of present wrapping and baking and last minute shopping and cleaning. Very busy and tiring and fun. One thing both Tim and I have noticed is that other shoppers really don't look like they are enjoying themselves. Hassled mothers with bored children, dads who have no idea where the spice aisle is (I was able to help with that one). It can be tiring and frustrating, but overall I enjoy the whole process. Especially present wrapping. I can't believe some people pay someone to do that for them - or at least get the department store to do it for free. It is one of my favourite bits. Come and clean my house for me and I'll happily do all your wrapping, even the weirdly shaped difficult things.

Any attempt to eat healthily has gone out the window for the next few days, but I have plans for 2016 in many areas of my life, will talk about that in a week or so. Probably not particularly exciting, much the same as every other year really, but it's a good time to gird up the loins.

I'm off to cook the gingerbread reindeer. I'll leave one or two out for Santa. Poor guy, how is he supposed to trim down when everyone gives him cookies. How many million households?

I hope everyone has a lovely festive season with family all around.


  1. Merry Christmas! I wish you and your family a beautiful time together.

  2. Merry Christmas Natalie; hope it's lovely in the new house!

    Looking forward to reading your blog in 2016!
