A very Merry Christmas to you!



Yippee!!!!!!! I've finished the shopping!!!!! There are not enough exclamation marks in the world to describe that wonderful moment when the last carrier bag has been unpacked, the fridge is full and the front door can be shut knowing that no more forays to the supermarket/shops are needed (well apart from the usual last minute things that we forget every year ...).
Christmas can begin. Wishing you all a wonderful, family filled, memory making Christmas. Thank you all so much for being so so lovely this year, so encouraging, supportive, downright funny and irreplaceable.
Happy Christmas!

but the wrapping ....? I can never get comfortable to actually do it which is a problem. I do my shopping [what I do of it] in drabs and dribs and put things in safe places. I then forget all about them and they are found usually round February time - I wondered what I'd done with that ...

Merry Christmas to you :) I loved that wrapping paper, just delightful. I've still got food shopping to do, but no car today so it will have to be tomorrow - yikes! I've got a Christmas story on my blog at the moment if you want to take a break :) Beary Hugs, Catherine and the bears x

Simone said...

Well done. I thought I had finished Sunday but had to go out yesterday and today and I still forgot the grapes!!! Have a lovely Christmas with your family. X

Lucky you! We went shopping after I finished night shift yesterday morning and I still have to go out again....

Merry Christmas Kim,

It's such a great feeling - I did my very last bit of shopping this morning. Just the 101 things to do around the house now (sitting at the computer is not one of them!) Have a happy Christmas.

I hope you and yours have a lovely Christmas, Kim. I'm almost finished with the preparations now, but still have a bit of wrapping to do! I don't think you can ever really relax until all the shops are finally shut and you can't possibly dash out to buy another thing that you've forgotten!!

A Happy Christmas to you and your dear family, Kim!

I have one more gift to purchase, and a HUGE list of groceries still needs to be fulfilled... I am waiting for my boys to get out of school for the holiday so they can help me with all the bags of food I'll end up with!

hugs! xo

Pondside said...

...and a Merry Christmas to you and your family too! Being eight hours behind you, I still have one foray to make and then I, too, can shut the door and settle in for a few days. We've been snowed in for a several days, so it's been hard to get the last minute things accomplished, so I have great plans for the day!
All the best to you for a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year, from the Pacific North West.
