I am actually one of those people who normally love the last minute Christmas rush. I actually like shopping on Christmas Eve day for those last mminute gifts - enjoying all the excited anticipation in the atmosphere and the last day of the shops playing Christmas carols, and Santa having his photo taken with children and all the glitzy greenery and decorations.

But this Christmas I'm having to pace myself a little. A painful back doesn't help, nor does having another real estate agent visit today. I have an early morning hair cut tomorrow and a few last minute presents to get. Thankfully, I should be one of the first into the carpark, so that shouldnt be an issue. But you should see my list for today.
Tidy the house
Make raspberry cordial
Make strawberry mouse for Sunday
Wrap presents
Ice Christmas cake
Make gifts for the neighbours
Change beds
My son and I have been planning a special idea for Rob, so we need to organise that this morning, because his work finishes early today.
Paint my nails
Praying the the mailman has delivered two presents for my children that are late in coming!

And a few other little things. All fun of course, except tidying the house and ironing.

What are you doing today?

Painting nails sounds good! Must remember to do that! Life is crazy here and one has just succumbed to the stomach flu! I thought we were finished with that last week. I hope you all have a wonderful christmas!!!! Wish we could visit in person.

Oh dear. Sounds like things are quite hectic. How do you make your cordial? The mailing pressies idea. Can you elaborate sometime on what that is? Do the gifts come from santa in the mail or mommy and daddy?? Sounds like a whole lot of fun! Can't wait to hear how your weekend goes. Praying for a fun filled blessed time.

Merry Christmas Dear friend! xxoo
