Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Put up the tree and decorated it today, and put up the lights out front. Also hung the stocking and put up a few small decorations. Then I hung our uber-geeky wreath on the door.

Then I got the mail, put the boxes away, put away the laundry and straightened up a little.

FUCK, I'm tired.


Hubby's getting frozen pizza tonight. There's no way I'm going to cook.

Well, term officially ended today, so tomorrow I'm heading home for the Christmas holidays.

Put up our little lighted tree and wrapped some presents. Also put up the rest of the decorations around the apartment. I just realized that more than half of the ornaments on our tree are Star Wars or Trek related.

Wow, all you people with your decorating already seem to be eager beavers to me. My tree goes up about three days before Christmas!

Can't sleep, so the tree is up and about 3/4 decorated. Gifts are bought or ordered except for a couple which will be taken care of next week. Still need to fix some exterior lights and finish the tree.

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

We had snow yesterday which, typically, partially melted and froze again, turning the pavements/sidewalks into ice rinks. I'm lucky that I live on a big residential road so my road is gritted and there's enough traffic to melt the snow and make the road pretty safe to drive on. However I had an easy day at work yesterday because some staff members who live out in the sticks were stranded by the snow so the sessions I work in were cancelled. Those of us who made it to work tidied the community rooms and had a great kvetching session while drinking copious amounts of coffee and tea.

We'll probably buy our tree next Friday and decorate it over the weekend. At first I though me and my daughter would decorate the house this weekend but she's staying at a friend's house on Saturday night. How come my kids have a social life, but I don't?

I have the same kind of 'luck': not only is it 'inner city' (plenty of traffic), town hall deems this neighbourhood so important that they clean and salt the pavements (at a price though ).

Every time it begins to snow a ballet of sorts begins: first there's the machines that sweep the pavement -one side then the other- then there's the machines on the bike path -one way then the other- and then there's the (bigger) machines for the road. When it really snows there's not a second of it when I can't see yellow blinking through the blinds (yellow being the colour of warning lights here).

Re: The Christmas Countdown Thread!

Isn't it the best?!

I have one more gift to buy, but I have no flipping idea what to get him.

I wish it would get cold here. It's hard to get too into the Christmas Spirit when it's 75 degrees out.


Speaking of which...it's time to decorate the thread.

I'm about to wrap a Christmas present for my friend in the US and send it across the Atlantic. It's a teddy bear with greetings from this part of the UK where she used to live. Hope it arrives in time!
