I LOVE Santa


Been up since just before 5am….. A combination between excitement and knowing there’s a lot to do today ;) Unfortunately, it seems I’m the only one in our house today who was eager! So I spent the next 3 hours sodding about on Facebook and Twitter (which were quite dead as everyone was busy opening presents!) catching up with blog stuff and writing my prompt. Two cups of tea later and feeling pretty bored I finally had company.

As far as I’m concerned you should open your Christmas presents in the dark, don’t you think? It’s not the same when it’s daylight outside, that’s just wrong! Right, that’s it, next year I’m getting them all up earlier!

Not a great amount of presents under the tree this year because the kids ain’t kids anymore *deep sigh*

But, it does appear that I have been a very good girl! There was only 1 thing on my Christmas list this year and it seems that Santa* thought I deserved it :)

A MAC AIR! *squeals* It’s still in its box but I’ll be fiddling with it later :)

Am now recovering from a hearty Christmas dinner :)

Hope you’re all having a lovely day….can’t wait for my pudding!

*Huge thank you to the hubster :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!


Yeah yeah, I know it’s officially To Do List day, but, I’m having a couple of weeks off :)

It’s Christmas Eve people! :) Are your stockings ready?

This is our tree :)

I will be posting tomorrow (because I have to or I’ll break my blog every day for a year challenge) but it will probably only be pics of my pressies.

So all that remains is for me to say…..

Have a lovely day :)

And I hope Santa brings you lots of good stuff! ;)

Now….I’m off for a mince pie! I may be a little quiet…it will depend on whether Santa brings me what I wanted ;)

The To Do List 17th to 23rd December


I didn’t have a bad week last week, even with the stresses of Christmas fast approaching lol

1. Finish Beta reading BN’s piece. Unfortunately, nope :( My reading has sunk to an all time low and I don’t know why.

2. Faber homework. Done!

3. Continue with Nigel Watts book. Still doing!

4. Edit and prepare The Last Word Cafe Synopsis for Thursdays event. Done!

5. Continue making notes on The Last Word Cafe and do a section in 3rd person. Still Doing. I spent a couple of hours last week working on a timeline lol.

6. Go through Faber notes re The Last Word Cafe. Done!

I’m going to be very easy on myself this week (especially as today is the last Faber session until after Christmas) in the run up to 2 weeks off! :) Not 2 weeks off of writing but 2 weeks off from having a list of goals.

Look at that clear diary! ;)

1. Continue with Beta Reading BN’s piece.

2. Continue with Nigel Watts book.

That’s it! Lol….I will make some notes on The Last Word Cafe if the mood takes me, but I’m not gunna beat myself up. This week is gunna be busy enough as it is, getting prepped for Christmas!!!! I still have a couple of pressies to buy, and some last minute bits of food. The plan is to be totally done by Saturday so that we can shut ourselves away in the warm until the 27th. Wish me luck!

So what are your plans for the week?
