One. More. Sleep.

24 Dec

Just got my Christmas cards and two small presents in the post. So they’ll be late. Though I did get a few cards out earlier last week. Dropped off a little gift to friend. Went to the supermarket, forgot my list, but still got everything I meant to get. If you need cream, can I suggest you get there pronto. There wasn’t much of the good stuff left.

In the supermarket (the small, independent one up the road, I’m not going into any of those big ones), a man, watching me lug two casks of water out to the car said: ‘you should’ve got your old man to come and get those’. I said: ‘he’s busy’. The man said: ‘mowing the lawns is he?’. I said: ‘scrubbing the shower’.

Tomorrow, all going well, we will be having tartufo for dessert. There is slightly less than there might have been if Youngest Boy hadn’t been helping me.

There is much more to tell, of course there is. But best not spend too much time on this post, in case the mister comes home from the last minute shit, we forgot the…shopping and sees me here, because before he left, we had a small dispute over priorities. I’m sure you’re having similar conversations.

Take care of yourselves. Of yourselves and the ones you love.

Talk with youse next year.

    Mr Soup’s car has a particular tone that I can hear while it’s still halfway up the street, so by the time he pulls into the driveway the computer is off and I’m busy vacuuming.

    Priorities indeed.

    Have a lovely Christmas dearest 3C.

    You know, there was a Great Cream Drought in Alice Springs at Christmas about two years ago.

    Re: the xmas cards – i seem to remember a certain sneer to your tone towards those of us who were organised by Dec 1 – now you will look like you have only sent out cards in response to those you received –

    sorry about lack of punctuation, recently-calmed baby on one arm. merry etc.

    Happy Christmas to you. Yes, we have very similar conversations about priorities and we both regularly catch one another out on our computers when we’re supposed to be doing other things.

    Must. Not. Be. Caught. Blogging. When. House. In. Uproar.

    Although both you and I know that a quick little blog can really help you focus before tackling the big tasks.

    Happy Christmas.

    Hope youse all had a great Christmas!

    Having to sneak in here to blog is frustrating. It doubles as my sewing room, so sometimes I lie.

    Best for 2008!

    I hate old men with random sexist outbursts.

    Really, if he were such the man, why didn’t he simply run to your pitiful, girly aid ?

    Glad you burst his macho bubble 😉

    Hope you had a Merry merry. I’m late with the sentiment, I know, but I only just got your card………..
