FINALLY decided to do my Christmas shopping...... I left my house at 8.00 am I know!!! you cannot believe that right! I am NOT a morning person. Got to Highpoint, armed with a wad of cash and NOT a CLUE of what to buy.... I wandered and wandered and looked and I refuse to buy things for the sake of having something....
I wasn't feeling too MERRY let me tell you! I did however discover gorgeous new shops and a new food hall and this shop in particular, I think it's a kiddies clothes boutique with an awesome bunting display in the window attached to a huge stick/twig and I loved it. It was a really different Christmas decoration and I stared at it for ages admiring it ( and committing it to memory, so I can copy it next year...)
It did put me in a better mood .....
19.12.12 - Something beginning with 'S'
SMILE!!!! I've made a Start ...... I actually bought this book for Mark a while ago. It is the Jim Stynes biography. He enjoys reading during the Christmas break and as we are fans of the Melbourne Football Club, I thought it would be perfect for him. I actually forgot I had it. So it was the first present I've wrapped!
20.12.12 - Weather
Stunningly beautiful weather here today! actually, it has been beautiful weather all round! I had to pull over to snap this beautiful view as I was driving back in to my home town. Yes, ok, I have edited the photo just a little bit......lol
21.12.12 - TREE
Way back.....maybe October sometime, we had a MASSIVE storm and one of the trees in my back yard, snapped and fell down......and there it has stayed.......... Until Aden, bored (or wanting to play with the chainsaw) decided he was sick of waiting for dad to deal with it!
Please note, that AFTER I took the photo, I screamed at him to get protective goggles on!!!
22.12.12 - Decoration
Last year, I collected a few Christmas baubles from various places in the US and I asked Christie if she could get me a Christmas decoration from New York. I LOVE this bauble!!! It has all the famous sites of the BIG APPLE hand painted all over and looks fabulous! LOVE it!!
