As you know it's almost the end of the year and only just this week have l finally booked hubby and l in to get our taxes done (for last year that is:-) - organised person, sooo NOT.... by my estimation that makes me 5 months at least behind the rest of the world. No amount of effort on my part seems to help me get any better organised either, which is bloody annoying to say the least.
.....and now with Christmas looming l KNOW l should at least be thinking about gift ideas for people and colour schemes for the Christmas decorating but somehow distraction reigns free here, and l just know l'm gonna have to fire myself from a cannon into the middle of next week if l'm ever to catch up and even then it'll be at the last gasp..
Maybe if the kids still lived at home or if l had a couple of grandies l might be filled with Christmas spirit myself and not be such an Ebenezer about it all. There used to be great fun and excitement in decorating the Christmas tree when the kiddos were young....we'd pull out all the decorations and l'd be trying to place them symmetrically on the tree and the kids would be plonking them all over the place..... l'd try to have a bit of a colour scheme going on and they'd want the entire rainbow range and we'd use all the decorations (and the stockings) the kids made at school, even if they were a bit dodgy at times:-)....those were the days my friends:-)
Of course these days it's just hubby and me rattling around here on our own so we like to keep it simple.....Having said that it's nice to make an effort with the Christmas lunch table since we usually host and l say host 'cos l certainly don't cook..... except for the vegies. Everyone else pretty much brings lunch with them, mostly 'cos l'm a crap cook and they want to be able to EAT the food, but also 'cos they're just good like that and want to contribute....any way a couple of wines and no-one worries too much...(ok maybe that's just me:-))
So this week as well as getting aforementioned tax paperwork organised and the usual old drudge l've been picking roses, taking photos and vintage shopping.....why would this week be different from any other week haha....
....and maybe a little guilty pleasure.. a bit of paint and pen dabbling....ooohhh l had a thought... a Christmas card perhaps, just add bells and a santa... haha
But hey, next week's a new week and l'm absolutely fully intent on getting all my ducks in a row...
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend whatever you're up to, thanks for stopping by.
Til next time,
