We Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

On one Christmas Eve, many years ago, I overheard the following conversation between two middle aged ladies:

1st lady - "Are you all ready then"?

2nd lady - "No kid - and I always say, if Christmas never came I still wouldn't be ready".

It made me smile then and I have often remembered that conversation at this time of year when there seems so much still to be done.

However, this year I'm really quite well organised. The house is decorated, all ready for a certain little 4 year old, presents are wrapped and under the tree, the
cakes are iced, one for us, one for daughter and one for a friend. As well as that most of the food shopping has been done.

DD and GD are due to arrive this evening and this will probably be my last post until after Christmas, though I may look in a couple of times.

So now, OH and I would like to wish all blogging friends a very happy and peaceful Christmas and best wishes for 2009.

Well you are organised.

I'm not, just like the second lady in your story. I had intended to do some housework today as I have my grandchildren for the next two days. However I woke up with some kind of bug and I have very little energy. I'm the last in the family to get it, just my luck when I thought I had escaped it.

Never mind I'll be on the whiskey, honey and lemon if it doesn't improve.

Have a lovely Christmas with your family and a great year in 2009!

I am not quite as organised as you but I am getting there, not so much left now.
A Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you and all your family.

Hoping to get my remaining jobs done tomorrow then I might consider myself organised.

Happy Christmas.
