Christmas is coming…

It’s been a while since my last post, and for that I am sorry, I find it not only disrupts, I guess, the flow of the blog, but it also disrupts my ideas and thoughts that I want to share, but I guess it doesn’t really matter because I am back now, and do you know what?  The countdown to Christmas is on… yes yes I know it’s still November, but I don’t care, if I could have Christmas all year round I would.

This week I have been reminded again how precious and fragile life is, and how important it is to spend time with those that you love and if you can’t spend time with them, telling them that you love them, because you just never know what is around the corner.  I guess one of the things, among many, that has made me think about this is that Christmas is just around the corner, and in my brain Christmas = love and family.

So Tuesday, which those of you fellow Australian’s would know was Melbourne Cup Day, Dave and I continued on a family tradition of mine, putting up the tree.  I guess being salvos the cup has little meaning for me, and don’t get me wrong I love having the public holiday, but when you take the drinking and gambling out of horse racing there isn’t that much left… I am sure others would disagree, but it just doesn’t do it for me.  Generally I still pick who I think will win, but other than bragging rights to anyone who will listen, it doesn’t go much further, and just for the record… yes in the past I have picked the winner… Anyway, I guess the point I am trying to make is that seeing as we get the day off to spend with family and friends, this day has often given my family and I the chance to stop spend time together and actually put the Christmas tree up.  I think we put it up so early for a few reasons:

  1. Mum loves decorating the house in all things Christmas, something which she has passed on to me.
  2. Putting the Christmas tree up is a whole family game, everyone needs to be there, well as many as can be, because that’s what makes it special
  3. The sooner the tree goes up, the better…

So this year, being the new Mrs George, I decided that this was something that I wanted to keep going with my new little family, so tonight after tea, Dave and I started the process of ‘Christmasfying’ our house… and I think we did a pretty good job, in fact you can check it out for yourselves below…


I am really looking forward to Christmas this year, I am not sure why, it can be chaotic, depressing and frustrating… there are some obviously good parts though I guess, maybe I am just hopeful it will be a peaceful and loving day, maybe I’ve just listened to Michael Buble’s amazing new Christmas CD once to many times already and have become deluded…  Who knows, but I guess the reason for the season brings hope and life to all… so maybe I will just keep holding on to that and wait and see…
