Arghhh, stop the world I want to get off!!!
It's just too crazy around here at the moment.
Mum's house has gone unconditional,
which means the sale if definite (yay),
but now we have to clean out and pack (boo).
I'm going out really early each morning
to hit the shops before the car parks fill up
and then it's back home to try and
get my house sorted for Christmas.
I've nearly finished buying presents and
today I got a 7kg leg of pork for just $38,
now that's a bargain.
My desk hasn't seen much action
but I did get some goodies
I got this gorgeous tea towel, bookmark
and Loch Ness Monster from
the equally gorgeous Neesie of
How cute is this little guy.
I also got a beautiful card from Margaret and John
of glitter glue.
Thanks so much to you all for such beautiful things.
You may recall that I won two prizes
recently, the beautiful cracker from Margaret
and the gorgeous bunting
from Lunch Lady Jan.
Here they are displayed proudly on our
Can't show the tree as it's still only
half up, we'll get there.
We don't need the dining table for Christmas day
as it's hot here and we all go out on the back patio
and have a Christmas BBQ and a swim.
(sorry to rub that in the everyone in the northern hemisphere)
In between the madness I've been
splashing the old paint brush around
and splashing is an understatement.
At the moment I'm writing this with green hands,
kinda like the Hulk!
My poor bird has been going from bad to worse
I keep adding a layer of glaze and
not liking it
Don't ask me what happened to that layer,
so out came another colour
and then another
Then I dropped a bit of purple and
thought it looked okay so I did more.
Okay so I dropped a lot and it was too late to fix it
so I had to add more.
Then I figured I've messed it now
so why not add more splots
and some red bits.
The real colour is far stronger and brighter
than the photo. It's nearly 5pm wednesday here
and the sun is coming through the window
and washing out the colour.
Plus I'm lousy with a camera.
I don't think I'll have time to do
any more posts until the new year
so I'd like to wish everyone a
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
and I'll catch up in January.
Now why not head on over to
and see what's on the other desks
around the world
Have a wonderful time.
