Hello! Bonjour! Willkommen!

November 24, 2010


Today I deliberately turned off both phones, stayed holed up in my boyfriends house, got out the tinsel and baubles and glitter snowflakes and built a mini grotto of Chritmas festive solitude. Instead of a tree, I build a three layered, six windowed, holly and poinsetta festooned Christmas house for putting presents in the windows and kind of neatly and tidily – way out of temptations path. I should take a picture of it because I am very proud of my little ropey efforts. There are only two presents inside at the moment – one from me for Hobart and one for Anthony from Hobart. I was in a little bliss. Even a tube of superglue exploding in my hands didn’t stop me for long. The smell of whitewash paint, that plastic smell of tinsel [I wish it was a perfume!] and the rustle of glitter snow strand things. Anthony said “Where am I going to put it??!!” It is too tall to go on top of the bookshelf. Instead it is sitting unevenly on some stack of stuff that looks so boring I can’t even be bothered to see what it is other than to know it is some solid shape.

Tonight for dessert, A-Dogg and I created a Swiss dessert – Chestnut Vermicelli in mountains on meringue with cream and raspberries. He is sitting playing “Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit” on the Xbox. He might have a need for speed but he aint gonna get far scoffing all the little mountains we made. More like “Need For Some Tracky Dacks: Hot Water Bottle”.

I love my blog. I haven’t given up on it. Or life.


  1. My needlepoint Santa seems so LAME now. I am not allowed to do anything else before 1 December. PLUS Rita has already opened her present…

  2. HAHAHA. December 1st was always the rule at Mum and Dad’s too – “The tree can go up after Emma’s birthday!!!” I can still hear them screeching now! That was kind of the look in Anthony’s face but better hidden because he is my boyfriend, not mother. I did cry a bit but then he did too and then we felt a whole lot better. END OF YEAR STRESS!! ROLL ON 2011!!! What did Rita get by the way?
