I love Christmas.
I love the kitch-y-ness of it all; the tinsel, the lights, the corny Christmas carols wherever you go. I love bursting out into song at the drop of a hat even if I don't know all of the lyrics and sing the same verse or chorus over again. I love embarassing the Princess and Little Man by breaking out into an impromptu rendition of Frosty the Snowman in the middle of the supermarket. I really do love tinsel!
I do not like the cockatoos that keep chewing my Christmas lights to the point where I've had to admit defeat and take them off the front fence. Bah humbug to you, cockatoos!
I also do not like the fact that I've taken back two sets of solar LED lights to Big W that are faulty. The Groom does not share my passion for Christmas lights so it is up to me to put them up - and then take them down prematurely when after a couple of days in the sun they have still not charged or the lights go out after only a couple of hours of use into the night.
I've got another two sets that could be faulty. One set was working when I first set them up last week. I moved them to the other side of the front of the house (because the light emitted was way too bright to be shining into the bedroom window), but now they're not. The other set was flashing away nicely until about 9pm last night when they faded to a dull nothing-ness, before finally quitting altogether by the time I woke at midnight. It must be the Big W brand I think. I've used Mirabella ones for years without a hitch, but they've all managed to get broken or lost in the move to the new house or in storage.

Outside my window... there is darkness. It is after 9pm.
I am thinking... will I make a banana cake tomorrow afternoon? Should I let Little Man sleep in my bed with me tonight. Why is the clock always ticking so loudly?
I am thankful for...money to buy medicine for The Princess’s nose infection.
From the kitchen... For tomorrow's Breakfast: scrambled eggs with cream and chives (again). For Lunch tomorrow: ham, cheese and tomato sandwiches. For tomorrow's Dinner: Grilled fish and salad.
I am wearing... denim shorts, floral tunic top that used to be a dress, bare feet.
I am creating... shopping bags from old curtain fabric samples for the upcoming school fete.
I am going... to bed soon. I’ve had a big day collecting unwanted bits and pieces from a friend’s house to use in my garden.
I am reading... the latest Burke’s Backyard magazine and Textual Journeys: Exploring Senior English.
I am hearing... the loud ticking of the clock, curlews calling, cicadas, frogs croaking merrily away.
A few plans for the rest of the week... put away the mountain of clean washing that’s built up, stock up on baking cakes and muffins to freeze for school snacks, tidy up my computer desk, go to Queens Park gardens and look at the herb garden.
