Christmas begins here
We were going to put up our tree today but, due to being very sad over the weekend (for obvious reasons), decided to go ahead and do it on Saturday to try and cheer ourselves up. It did kind of work and made us smile.
Tim and I had a nice meal Saturday night (a late Birthday meal!) and watched The Matrix (I got him the trilogy for his Birthday. Yesterday we went over his mum's for dinner again for his birthday and, again, put off from Friday for obvious reasons!
It's weird without Hemmy .... he's been with us for EVER and I still keep expecting him to come strolling across the garden or scrape madly on the back door to be let in or do his level best to trip me up when I get something out the fridge! It's also the first time, since we got together, that we haven't had a cat at all and that's weird too. One day, maybe in the spring, we'll get a kitten (I'd love a Silver Tabby but no way I could afford one!) ... a new "baby" for our family. Right now though, I couldn't even THINK about replacing Hem. Don't want to.
I've been "pottering" today - wrapping a few stocking presents, glitterizing fircones for a hallway shelf display I'm doing, making lists of presents I still need to get and food we need to get! I'm going to do one last REALLY BIG tidy up before Christmas but am going to wait until Tim is at work because I get on so much better without his lanky frame in the way heehee! Any case, it will be nice for him to come home to :)
We also promised the kids we'd take them to see the insane "road full of Christmas lights" in Poole like we did last year. Last year we did a little video of them which we won't bother with this year so if you want to see the insane "road full of Christmas lights" go here .... go on, you know you want to ....... *laughs*. Watch the video - it's at the end of it.
PS - Talking of insane Christmas lights you HAVE to watch this! Apparently, it's a charity thing which is just as well because otherwise they're neighbours would just LOVE them. House christmas lights set to some VERY irritating techno "music" (so brace yourself) - very clever though
