Phew!


Non stop around here.

Here's the deets:
Presents purchased (though not wrapped yet, can I even remember where half of them are hidden?)
M&S food order in.
Christmas cards finally written.
Xmas decorations finally emerged from storage in garage.
Xmas parties a go-go for social butterfly daughter with taxi driving mum in tow.
Concert and party week goes full turbo gear next week.
Toddler 'paint a bauble' Xmas party next week also (search out oldest clothes!!)
Toddler into everything - especially proclaiming 'WOW' loudly at every fairylight she sees.
The hunt is on for both daughters to spot their favouritest Xmas garden display. It's hotting up. The more light reindeer the higher the point score.
Constantly trying to supervise baby dismantling Xmas tree. A never ending job.
Constantly trying to stop 'that handbag is mine' fights between daughters who've only now started the territory wars, arrrrrrgh!

Things still to fit in:
Read as many Xmasy romances as possible (large precarious pile by bed)
Watch as many indulgent rom/costume drama movies as possible.
Fit in the entire series of Little Dorrit (awaiting watch in movie pile)
Wrap presents
Buy more chocolate
Deliver presents.
Major food shop in hideously crowded store (don't even mention that one)
And that's just the start. Need I go on....

So no writing being done around here. Whatsoever.
But that's okay.
2009 brings a new direction. I hereby admit, I'm going to have a new phase in the new year---trying my luck writing a LITTLE BLACK DRESS book. Hurray! Exciting innit.

PS I INTERUPT THIS POST TO NOTE THAT ELDEST DAUGHTER HAS JUST WALKED INTO THE ROOM HAVING PAINTED LARGE RED INDELIBLE INK 'MOUSE WHISKERS' ON HER FACE USING HER DECORATE A PLATE PENS. Nice work. Where's the carbollic soap?

Wow. You have been busy and mega good luck with LBD - that's very exciting and I'm sure you'd fit into an LBD to perfection.
