Candice: That’s what someone said to me this morning. The excitement is brewing in our house, though it’s all about the details:
- There is no 25 chocolate in her calendar so will she get a bigger one from the chocolate tin tomorrow?
- Has Father Christmas remembered her OMG LOL (well no he hasn’t as that was a last-minute entry)
- Can we clear some space for her new toys (me)- reluctance to that one
I’ve kept things simple, there are no presents under our tree so she has no idea what is coming. I’m hoping this will allay a 4am wake up! Too many exciting things under the tree might cause problems.
This year has been very twisty and turny – or ‘Bumpy’ as the Queen has described her year in her annual speech. Jobs have come and gone for my family, leaving us wondering exactly what next year will look like. For now, I’m enjoying my new role and hopefully the same can soon be said for the other half. Phil’s had a few bumps too, but not on his train tracks.
Normally I write a blog about Christmas Parties this time of year but mine has been very subdued. Yes, I had a nice night out, good food, a few glasses of Sauvignon, and some good chat but it was all over very early. Being a project person in a big company, employed people had their own parties to go too so there were too many decisions about which party to go to. By the sound of lots of friends, this is getting more and more unusual as companies clamp down on spending on the nice stuff like Xmas parties, which I think is a real shame.
Phil and I had a nice meal the other day and exchanged presents. We are both of the school that presents take precedence and like the excitement of buying something that we think someone will like. I’m almost as excited as Erin about opening mine tomorrow!
Hope that all our readers have a great Christmas and look forward to some good reading and writing experiences in the new year.
MERRY CHRISTMAS (in a Noddy Holder stylie)
