I'm starting to feel Christmassy at last. Only a teeny bit though.
School has finished and my last OU assignment of the year was sent off yesterday. Now I can focus on other matters in hand. The presents are purchased, with due consideration to the credit crunch. The cards are sent. We have no tree, as son 2 has been very upset by the tree over the last few years, too much of a change to his usual environment. Perhaps we will have another go at sneaking it up at the last minute this year. Son 1 is ill with a nasty gastric upset and had to miss work yesterday. It wouldn't be Christmas without some sort of illness here.
So for the next few days I will be house tidying, present wrapping and food shopping...
Three notable things:
1. The X Factor - the right result. But I hope JLS do well too.
2. I now have four versions of Hallelujah on my computer. Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, KD Lang and Alexandra Burke. Yes, I like that song...
3. I'm feeling sad about Woolworths closing, even though it has been rubbish in recent years.
