The End of November ---- and I'm feeling festive (and organised!!) already!


Poggio our little Scrooge

WELL. You will all be shocked to hear that I really am being very organised in my Christmas preparations this year. Since my last festive post I am delighted to be able to tell you that ALL my cards are now written and the envelopes stamped, ready for posting tomorrow and I have bought FOUR Christmas presents from our list. And its still only November! (Am trying my hardest not to be smug.... honest!)



I really am starting to feel festive today - I heard my first Christmas song on the radio while I was cooking dinner ("Fairytale of New York" by The Pogues) and have been making and eating mince pies this weekend (and drinking lots of mulled VINO!). Friday night was the switch on of our town's Christmas lights and the Salvation Army's full brass band were playing carols. It was B R I L L I A N T and drinking steaming hot mulled wine whilst standing outside in the freezing cold with the Other Half and Daisy made me feel extra Christmassy. We also ordered our turkey from our local butcher (I have been dreaming about Christmas dinner ever since) and I have even managed to persuade Himself to go and get a tree while I'm working tomorrow so that I can put all the decorations up when I get home.

Finally, I am eagerly awaiting the imminent London snow. I am reliably informed that it is going to start at around midnight and we should have about a foot by the morning! I can't even remember the last time we had snow before Christmas!! And I have no idea why I am getting so ridiculously excited; snow makes London grind to a halt. The buses and trains stop running and the roads are a nightmare..... but everything looks so PRETTY when its covered in a blanket of white! And with any luck we will get a snow day and I can stay at home with Daisy and make snowmen in the back garden. At last our new wellies might get their first outing!

PS As you have probably noticed Poggius Maximus the cat does not share my love of all things Christmassy.
