Looks like its finally arrived then, eh?
The lights are on, the traffic is utter doggy-do, the open lesson has been at the ballet school, the Christmas play at the play-school, presents are bought and wrapped (except a few I have to get tomorrow! Oops!), turkey is ordered, tree is up and dressed, TV programmes have gone all weird…………
No snow. Of course. I suppose there’s an outside chance of a drizzle over the holiday days but looks more like being our 6th Christmas with soggy green grass as a view.
Still, we’ve got a few days off work and we get to spend some “quality” time with the extended family. Got a few family style DVDs lined up to fill the gaps.
Quality time with the extended family – is that an oxymoron or what! Most folks I’ve talked to are dreading it. The arguments, the stress, the boredom…..why do we all do it, eh? To make matters worse, we even have to dress nice while we do it!
It’s at times like Christmas and Easter that I wish I could find it within myself to get all spiritual. At least then it would add some higher purpose to all the buggering around!
Christ! Let’s get this over with eh and roll on to a recessed 2009!
Where’s that box of Nurofen Ultra-Hyper-Max! :)
