Hello there and happy December. My word it’s close to 2013.
The Christmas parties have started. This is me, our doctor’s surgery party, on the Junk at Port Macquarie. Such fun.
The exciting news is I’m on long service leave from my other job and normally I’m trying to fit ten things in at once. I’ve four weeks off and go back on the afternoon of Christmas Day. With luck I might even get to catch a Christmas baby as well, but for now, I’m only getting out of bed when I want to for the next wee while. That’s pretty cool.
Apparently I have three hundred (300!) long service days owing to me – so – wow! I guess that means I’ve been in this little country hospital a long time.
So this year, in the lead up to Christmas, once this last bit of my 28th book falls into place, (I’m just at that smiley, Oh my goodness, I love this, point J) then I’ll be on holidays from writing too.
I’ll be really able do all those things I keep meaning to do every year before the end of the year but never get to. So excited about that.
What do you wish you could get done at this time of the year? Like Christmas cards, where did they go? I love Christmas cards (and the Christmas missive with all the family goss) yet the last two years I haven’t managed the satisfaction of achieving that goal. There’s something really cool about sending a card. All I managed last year was a quick return for those who sent to me – I mean you can’t miss those.
Then there’s the massive spring clean. With my youngest child officially an adult (in Australia that’s eighteen) there is a lot of sorting of accumulated unnecessary items. My husband has put his hand up to help make that happen before the end of December. I’m seriously excited about that.
But most of all I’ve got a to-be-read pile a mile high.
So it’s an exciting month, what have you got planned for December? I’d love to hear
Keep well and keep happy
