In the thick of it here...printing off vouchers for all the extended family who have said "just give us money" when we've asked them what they want for Christmas. We're giving them little home made vouchers for whatever they're putting the money towards.
Then we have to assemble a teepee and a sun lounge. Since the sun lounge is Chris' present, I feel like I should at least make a token attempt to put the bolt in with the Allen key that it came with. Maybe that one will be waiting until after the Christmas rush is over and we are all wanting to lie around beside the pool.
We're stuffed full of Christmas festive food this evening after our family dinner at home. After the entree we usually head down to the local Salvation Army church (the closest one to our house) to go to their Christmas Eve service, then we return home for the main course and dessert. This year, lots of ham and trifle was on the menu.
When we got home, the people across the road were giving their inflatable Santa see-saw a re-vamp. After a promising start a few weeks ago, it broke down so we haven't seen it in a while. It still doesn't seem to be going too well. Both the man and the woman who live there came out separately and I saw them poking at it to try and get it to work. I guess they only have to keep it going for tonight and then they can get rid of it.
But in amongst the busy-ness of Christmas Eve, I didn't want to forget wishing you, all of my readers (although I don't know how many of you are still hanging in there!?), a very blessed Christmas, as you remember the birth of Jesus, our Saviour and Lord.
