Christmas is a-coming

Christmas is coming
The goose is getting fat
Please-a-put-a penny
in the old man's hat,
please-a-put-a-penny
in the old man's hat.

If you don't have a penny,
a ha'penny will do,
if you don't have a ha'penny
then God bless you,
if you don't have a ha'penny
then God bless you.


There's the sugar plums, of course.



And pulling out the old recipes, fragrant with old brandy. And the creativity required to make a host of presents. (That's right folks, I'm making my gifts this year! I think it'd mean more)

There's books:



To be made by self.

There's CD's. I'll select some songs and burn `em.

There's cakes (tell me which one is your favourite. Addy has booked the Texas Fudge cake).



As for crafty sorta projects, well looks like I will only finish one by Christmas. Maybe I can work on `em next year to have enough presents to go around.



(No, that's not it)


Gosh, I feel all excited.

Nessa: Yeah, am all excited which is great. Last year I wasn't. Last year I hoped it will just be over and done with.

Praby-Waby: First, I have to say, Vas had a girl! Yay! Addy and I went to visit them yesterday. Vas is doing fine. Baby very cute. Mini-version of Vrishin. (Arun sent Addy an SMS - It's a girl! It's a girl! It's a girl!) So you can see what he thinks of it.

Quilly: Hello my cheery friend. Ebenezer Scrooge does not sit well on you. Full to the brim of the joy o' life as you always are.

Jenn, I don't know how, but I missed this post yesterday. Maybe it was my subconscience - hard to think about Christmas when I'm not around family then. I'm impressed at your ambition though - making the gifts you give is pretty special. You go, girl.
