Starting with the weather, gosh, we have a warm December. Normally we are around 6C, but we have 12-14C . Amazing! I don;t mind, though. Of course it is nice to have a "white Christmas"but I like this weather more. LOL.
My back is getting better and better, will have to take care on how I move and such, but that wicked pain is gone, yeah!!!!
Wednesday and yesterday I did about all the Christmas food shopping, wanted to have as much in the house as possible already now, to avoid the big stampede in the shops next week.
There are always some small things you just cannot buy in advance, but that are only a few things so I am happy.
wednesday evening someone was knocking on our window(I wondered why, because we have a good working doorbell now, but we checked and probably touched a little button in replacing the thing in another powerpoint, so all works again now), Jan went looking at the door and wow, the elves brought us a big Christmasbox. all presents are under my Christmastree now, and it is such a happy sight, every time we look at our tree. We will wait till Christmasday to pen them. It´s part of the fun to wait till Christmas.
I remember Christmastime when i still lived with my parents, we often had a lot of friends around at Christmastime and so there were also a lot of presents under the tree. And the pile grew every day LOL.
And what fun we had when we finally opened our presents. Often it were just small and not expensive gifts, but it doesn;t matter, the thought behind it is more important than the value. And we opened them one by one, so most of the time my mother was sitting next to the tree and picked the presents, read the name on it, this person then opened it and we all laughed or AHHHH'ed and OHHHH'ed and only then the next one received a present. So you can imagine it took one or two hours to open up all presents. We did that in the afternoon with a little drink and snack and after all that we had our dinner.
Happy times and memories.
Coming back from my shopping yesterday I nearly passed Heidi´s house, so I made a little visit, to see how Danny was doing. Monday he had a check up in the hospital and all seemed to be well and in good order. He still has to take a lot of rest for the next few weeks, but all healed well enough. That was good news.
Then Jan went to a gathering from his volunteerwork, kind of Christmas gathering for staff and volunteers and he came back with quite a bix Christmasbox, stuffed with all kind of tasty things. Very nice gesture of the elderly care facility towards the volunteers I think.
This afternoon Jan will go to his job a bit earlier because they have a kind of Christmas drink(without alcohol LOL) at the section where he works.
That was about my week, of course did some bits and bobs, but not really interesting to put in this post, hahaha.
I have again a Christmaskit for you, named "Highland Christmas"and also Arlene's add-on.
Have a wonderful day and weekend and week ahead.
