Christmas has landed in Dream Acres, l have now officially started to get organised. Yesterday l scuttled about in the loft and brought down the decorations. I even managed to find my huge pine swag that l had planned to use for fair displays and then forgot about completely. Actually last weekend at Hopetoun l spent the entire weekend looking at the same swag on Carey's stand and stressing over where l had stashed mine. This year (after Christmas is all over with and packed away for another year) l am determined to remember to store it with the other display stuff and not try this sure-to-fail plan of 'oh l will remember where l put it', never, ever works that one.
Anyway l decided to get stuck into the prezzie wrapping. Afterall the diningroom table is all set up for order wrapping these days so no excuse. I then hauled everything out of my prezzie stash and attacked with gusto! Only managed to gift wrap the scissors once and had to unwrap two packages to find them again. Made full use of my aramoatag hearts as tags, and at the end of the afternoon had everything done.
What joy l feel as if l am finally getting into the swing of this Christmas thing, instead of just selling it to other people.
Today we have the Christmas coffee morning and carols at the village school and then Idgy and l will go get the Christmas tree. Hmmmmmmmmm now where will l put it…….
