The Day Before Christmas....

It's the day before Christmas Eve and I've been out on the roads already and seen two cars clean each other up... with the police, two tow trucks and an ambulance all cleaning up the mess.  All I was doing was getting some petrol and collecting the mail.

It's the day before Christmas Eve and I'm packing the last of my goodies to take to the coast.  There's my iPod, a book or two, a journal I've been keeping when I travel to Brunswick Heads (it's an experiment I'm conducting) and a sketchpad too.  I'm not planning on buying anything from there this year, just kicking back and enjoying my time by the sea.

It's the day before Christmas Eve and I don't want to go to the shops to get anything - not even for Mum - because of the famous Christmas Crush.  I've done it before, and don't wish to do it again.  I am going to the bank to get money out, taking food to their place and hopefully having the oil checked in the Pajero, but I don't want to go grocery shopping for Mum... not now...

It's the day before Christmas Eve and the days are hot.  So, I'm up early to get as much as I can done before the heat strikes me down as useless after 10am.  After that, I'm usually found at my craft table next to the back door painting my Crafty Pegs.  And I'm getting a lot done too!  Yay!

It's the day before Christmas Eve.  I've organised what most of my house, tidied up as much as I can, begun writing again and am reading another few books as well.  Yes, I'm working on getting into the New Year with a few books read, some art to look forward to and other little things to work towards.  And they are just in the planning stages.  

It's the day before Christmas Eve... you know what I'm up to... what's on your agenda?  Until my next post, take care, keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.  And... Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and stay safe wherever you are in this world.


  1. Have a joyous Christmas with your family. Safe travels over the holidays too!

    1. Thank you, and you as well. I don't like shopping a few days before Christmas... people are crazy. So, I do a few big shops a couple of weeks before and stay home - much safer that way. :)

      Then, on the big day, I try to stay out of everyone's way! :D
