Every year I vow to be ore organised next year.
This year I have wrapped all but one of my presents (usually end up doing that for hours on Christmas Eve evening) and we still have two full days to go.
The food was delivered last night, later I will be in town picking up the few bits I forgot to order.
The cake has been sitting in all it’s white glory in the corner of the kitchen for a week.
Mince pies were made last night with more to follow tonight along with cocktail sausage rolls.
The tree is semi decorated
Pug is home from University
Statto will arrive on Christmas day with my mother.(Prodigal won’t be with us this year but we will see him on Boxing day).
Today I have to make sure that everything is ready for Wednesday as for me tomorrow will be a lost day.
Tomorrow (Christmas Eve) I shall be leaving the house by taxi at 6.15am to keep an important appointment with some very special people. People who instead of being at home with their own families are making sure that people like me have the surgery that we need. I am only having a small procedure and should be home some time in the afternoon. However this does mean that I have no choice but to sit back and relax on Christmas day whilst Skater and Statto between them cook Christmas dinner with help from Pug and guidance from Grannie. (Owl will be on washing up duty).
Am I looking forward to Christmas day?
Yes with some reservations (I hate not having any control over what is happening).
