Well my friends...

... are you ready for Christmas?

Today is "D" day for us as we fly out tonight and hence have to have every last present wrapped and every bow tied (plus all the packing etc. done) by 9pm tonight. I think I am almost there, although I am sure there are a load of things I have forgotten, plus I have a full day of work ahead of me! Arghhh

I am so looking forward to getting on that plane tonight! It means that today will be over and I can finally relax. This past 2 months have just flown by and I feel as though I haven't stopped. I tell you what, talk about looking forward to Christmas, I am looking forward to January, when I can come home and relax, without having a list of things to do longer than my arm!

Now where's the Christmas spirit I hear you say, and yes, I am trying to remind myself of that! I do love Christmas (it's my absolute favourite time of the year), but it is also the busiest and most stressful time.

Hope you are managing to keep the stress levels down, and enjoy the festive season. I plan on doing that at about 11.30pm tonight when we board the plane and I answer yes to "can I offer you a glass of champagne ma'am?".

I hope to post while I am away, but in case I don't get a chance (highly likely), then let me wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We get back on 3rd Jan, so if I don't speak to you before then - stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas with your family & friends.


P.S. The pics above are ones I have collected over the past couple of months (mainly from the lovely blog A Pretty Trip), although the first is from here (what a great idea!). I wanted to make sure I shared these pretty pics with you before I left, so sorry that they have all come at once!
