#323-“BELT UP, BETTY!” Festive…

Belt Up, Betty! Festive...


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!   So the song goes.    For once I’m actually organised – my presents are wrapped and labelled, however,  I just have to do the hated Christmas Cards – it’s my worst job,,,ever !!   If I had my way I wouldn’t write any but my elderly father feels it’s the ‘right’ thing to do so I have to write his for him.   Am sure he’s more than capable of doing it himself but he gives me the puppy eyes and I always,,,ALWAYS end up writing them !!   Bigger fool me !

Today was the day we started to decorate to office as work (as mentioned this is year competition of best dressed department which we are mandatory to win!) – I walked in the door at 8pm tonight after spending three hours sewing (yes,,you heard me correctly) cotton wool balls onto pieces of nylon thread to look like snow hanging from the window frames – to say I’ve lost my Christmas spirit (just for today mind you!) is an understatement!!   We did have a giggle though – couple of glasses of Proscetto and all was good !!

Moral of this story is – Love it or hate it (or however you celebrate (or don’t celebrate) at this time of year) the festive period is upon and you can’t escape it even if you wanted too – it’s everywhere!!    I embrace Christmas – I have wonderful Christmas memories from childhood which have continued to grow with every Christmas bringing a new memory.  Today’s memory will be about Cotton Wool Balls!!    #NoMoreBalls #BahHumbug #ChristmasYay!
