Ramblings of the Christmas Kind


I am so way behind in my Christmas jobs, I haven't even sent any cards. I usually am so well organised and have them sent out at the beginning of December. Not this year! Today I will madly scratch out some messages and madly chase the postman to deliver them, hopefully before the 25th.

Speaking of mail, last week I received a postcard congratulating Matt and I on the birth of our baby boy. The Doctor was born 4 years and seven months ago. It's taken Indonesia post that long to deliver our mail. Wow. It must have circumnavigated the world a few times in those years? The tales that wee postcard could tell!

It's also Tiny's birthday this week, as well as the wrap up of pre-school, and I've also scheduled a wee meltdown for the tail end of the week too. Just for kicks.

I am also getting super excited about Christmas! We saw my Mum and Dad this weekend for a little pre-Christmas festivities, which was fun to the power of fun. We didn't want to leave.

We've had a French family staying with us for a few days. Now it feels like there's a great big hole since they've left this morning. The Doctor had a wonderful time playing with the boys, each morning busting to go in to see them (at 6am, non!), and staying up well past his seven o'clock and calling out 'Bon soir!' at bedtime.

I've been making Suffolk Puffs, or yo-yos. It's easy. It's cheaper than therapy. I likey.

Today is for making sense of where we are at. Where are we at? Can someone tell me? I'd really love to know. And while you're at it, can you tell me what to do next? Merci beau coup!

The trick is you have to keep adding more brandy to the egg nog. It really works.
If you have brandy nog and then write your Christmas cards...even better!
I am so glad you have therapeutic yo-yo's to make. I have been doing therapeutic finger knitting. I figure I can hang myself with the garland when I'm finished!
Ben was also a bright spark. We invested 10 extra cents for tape on a rolly thingy and now I don't have to try and get tape off the furniture when it curls up and get's stuck.
More brandy please.

Love the meltdowns that are happening at the chrissy parties. I think I need to allow for extra time for them.
It's an awkward time.. Enough time to finish the crafty projects, but too early to start making food...

Lucky for you I am in Delphic mode right now so I think I have your last couple of questions sorted.

Stop and take a look around. Right here, right now is where we are. No more, no less. As to what is coming next? Again have that one covered - breathe in, breathe out, continue to repeat as necessary.















Coo get me! I am all zen and oracle-y today!!

Ooh, i have no idea where I am at or should be at so can offer no advice on that. But I do like your yo-yos! I have exhausted their therapeutic use over the last couple of months so will now move on to hexagons for the December/January period!.....
