Oooh, look here...


I've just been sent this. Lucky me eh? Thanks Merry Mog! This picture is, of course just like me. My waist is just as slim as that, my legs look just as glamourous as that, I walk oh so elegantly in high heels just like that. This picture was obviously modelled on me.

I have things to show you but haven't yet taken the pictures. I have things to tell you but I've forgotten what they were. I am slowly losing the plot at the moment. I am beginning to get seriously annoyed by the fact that I have to sleep. I am usually in bed for about 7 hours (often less, never more). That is 7 hours when I could be doing stuff like finishing off the Christmas presents, wrapping the presents, baking, decorating the Christmas cakes defrosting the freezer, ironing, knitting, watching the whole series of Little Dorrit that I've recorded. You know - doing the important things in life.

But no, I have to sleep instead of doing all these things. And it's driving me nuts!

That sounds like me - I resent having to sleep. Then I lie in bed when I should be sleeping thinking about all the things I could be doing if I was up... might as well just be up doing things! Beautiful picture of you by the way!

Why do we always do this to ourselves each year? Christmas stopped being exciting ages ago and is now just mega stressful! We should all opt out one year and just aim to enjoy it instead of trying to make it perfect!!!

How do you make the sunglasses stay on your hound? We need the info b/c Princess C-W will obviously be wanting to follow your style lead!

I feel the same way about my family needing to eat. Eat, eat, eat - three times a flippin' day. Don't they know how much time I'd save if they'd just graze and drink endless cups of coffee??!

I'm with Lucy on this. Glad you liked your photo! I bet the said elegant lady can't knit, bake, sew...... Recently married son broke his ankle playing in goal for his work football team on Monday night. He says he is going to be plastered for 6 weeks!!

'...finishing off the Christmas presents..?' You mean you've started??? I take my (hand knitted) hat off to you. I LOVE to sleep, but I resent the amount of time it takes.
Tomorrow I'm making a wedding cake for someone whom I've never met... and no, I don't do this professionally. Stressy - ness will, no doubt, keep me awake tonight....

you are not alone there!! and i agree with Lucy - by the time i've run around shopping, cleaning, cooking, etc., i'm too tired to enjoy the day and end up feeling i've missed it all!!!
