Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Progress- my tree has lights and a garland, and a handful of ornaments. Hopefully, I'll have the strength to finish decorating this week!

It's also time to pull out my Christmas shirts and sweaters.

I've switched to my Christmas avatar- Santa Eddie!

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Finally got round to putting up my tree after a few days of procrastination. Glad I got my arse off the sofa long enough to do so. Last year I didn't bother at all, but this year I feel more Christmassy so up it goes.

Where (roughly) are you? Down here we've not had any snow yet.

My husband ventured into the loft yesterday and the Halloween stuff in finally packed away and our Christmas decoration boxes are down. None of the decorations are up yet but that will probably happen this weekend. I also need to get cracking on my international cards, or I'm going to have a load of crabby old aunts on my case.

^I just have one crabby old Auntie to send a card to. She can't understand why no one sends her cards or calls her anymore, but she's probably the world's most unpleasant human being EVER. Still, I feel sorry for her, so she gets a card once a year around Christmas time.

I'm in the south east. It's been snowing all day long - my guestimate from the nice warm indoors is that there's almost a foot of it now.

Just wrapped a bunch of presents and picked up some phone covers that my nephew thinks are "totally cool."

*phew*


Off to make dinner now.

We've had some nice snow here in the last few days.

A nice little fibre-optic lit tree sits on the tower of my nice new computer, USB lights are strung across the top of the monitor (well, they were yesterday) and the world is covered in a sheet of snow. I feel Christmasy.

Gonna get the proper decorations out within the next few days.

A nice cool and clear day here. Still have three more presents to get and need to get the tree up. Maybe I'll see if I can get hubby to pull the tree out of the garage for me.

Seems that I suddenly have tomorrow off (rats!) so I can do the tree tomorrow and get the house straightened up.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Put up my new blinking led light Santa as snowman x-mas decoration-horror and tweaked an AV to work under the harsh reality of only 140x140 pixel - but I'm not sure you'll ever actually see it as it is from a time where I really couldn't get into the spirit of the season.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Earlier today I ordered TAS from Amazon for just under 16, which made me a happy girl. It's the only ST series we don't have on DVD and I've never seen a single episode of it, but I'll do my best to be good and not test-drive it before I wrap it up for my husband. Mind you, my husband is notorious for playing DVDs and CDs before wrapping them!

No snow here yet. My kids are becoming impatient, because most of the rest of the country has at least had flurries. We've had temperatures at or just below freezing and lovely sunshine, which is my favourite kind of weather.
