7,8 and er, 10
Catching up here, feels good! Christmas shopping was a fun one to do. I love shopping for pressies, especially when I'm abroad, and I love buying things for Christmas. But I do hate busy crowded shops, traffic jams and having to make decisions when I don't know what to buy! So here it is: Visions of Christmas had me a little bit stumped til I read the 'use something small' direction, and decided to play with a punch and just jot down all the things that tell me Christmas is on the way! I've kind of skipped no 9 just now - it's Traditions - and I know what I'm going to do, but need to get my sister to take a piccie for me. I made a model house in an art class about 30 years ago and every year it's brought out, covered in 'snow', and decorated with a santa and sleigh that Mum got for it many years ago too. I used to do this, then my mum did it for a while after I'd left home, then my elder nephew took over and now my younger one does it... so after 30 years it's a family tradition! No 10 was a quickie as Shimelle said - useful when you need to catch up! - tells my wrapping present plans.
