dear me, the Christmas Busyness has descended
what a busy week its been! and the next week will be equally as busy.
as such i haven’t had any time to spend on the internet, never mind my blog or the blogs on my blogroll. i hope you’re all having a wonderful christmas season and that all your preparations are running smoothly.
have you done all your shopping? i’ve done most of mine, but i’ve got to get charlotte’s today. i ran out of money and so had to wait till my pay day before i could get charlotte’s pressies!
so whats happening? well: tomorrow we’re going to charlotte’s mom for the day, monday we’re getting the food ready and doing all our last minute preparations (and cleaning the house, charlotte has just informed me) for christmas day. then its christmas, of course, which we’ll be spending at home with our friend ilse. poor old ilse doesn’t have anyone else to spend christmas with, as her family are all in south africa. and then its boxing day. i reckon we’ll all just lie around like lazy pythons.
and today? well today, apart from food shopping and charlotte’s christmas presents, today is mine and charlotte’s one year anniversary! one year. we’re going to “the old parsonage” for dinner to celebrate.
this illustrates how busy and jolly our christmas preparations are: charlotte just said that she’s worrying about the fish. the fish? whats to worry about? i don’t know why she’s worrying about fish? and how is worrying about it going to help matters? will it make it better? but its fish thats on her mind.
for now. and then its something else on her mind. like… i don’t know, the fact that the rug needs to be vacuumed… hmmm… how long the meat needs to be cooked… uh… what she’ll wear!! how could i forget about that! 😀 oh, my little charlotte… such a worry wort.
so i’ll be a little elf for the next few days (have been for a few days already) running up and down, being in all places at once and carrying an elephant in one hand and the cat food in the other… and being told over and over about how women can amazingly do 20 things at once! 😉
but thats christmas at chez de rosnay… 🙂 at least after christmas lunch we’ll be able to relax. we’ll both eat so much that i don’t think we’ll be able to do anything but relax afterward!
and because i don’t know whether or not i’ll have time to post a new blog or visit your blogs before christmas i just wanted to say that i hope all your christmasses turn out as you hope, that your turkeys are all cooked to perfection, that all your shopping gets done in time and that you get to spend it with all the people that you love.
