So, um, yes, I am so weirded out that Christmas is just over a week away! What happened to December?? Man oh man!
Anyway, I actually think all my shopping is pretty much complete....oh there are a few small bits and bobs I have to pick up but the main gifts are ready to go.
My brother arrives this Monday for 2 weeks and now my cousin and aunt are also come over for Christmas...along with my sister and her Tom. Yay! The more, the merrier! I love Christmas! I love the family all together (even if we do get a little on one another nerves by the end), I love the cookies, the lights! AND I looooove decorating!!
I have a lot of decorations up already at my house, but it kinds looks like Christmas burst all over my living room. I've got miniature villages set up but remnants of lights and shopping bags all over, boxes and extension cords litter the floor. Soon it will be ready, and this Friday or Saturday Shantala, my dear, dear friend, is taking me in her truck to get a TREE!! I cannot wait! I've purchased some new tree ornaments and balls, ooo and snoflakey shapes and fake icicles since I've never had my very own big, large, real tree before. I just love the smell of real trees, too! So sharp and crisp and wintery. I for sure will take some photos this weekend when it's all up.
As for the other major happenings around my life, I still have to move and I haven't found any place to go yet. I've checked out one suite but they were asking an arm and a leg for a tiny place! I mean, I can afford a decent suite, but I'm not paying that much for a tiny space!
I am selling some stuff on usedvictoria.com, you can go here:
to look at what I am currently selling. I also have a few more pieces of furniture to sell, too.
So long for now! All you friends who blog, keep it up! I love checking to see what's new in your world!
