Ok, so yesterdays post was way too down to leave as my final post before Christmas and possibly for the year. Sorry about that! Feeling a bit better today (only 3 more days til holidays!) so I just wanted to stop in and pick this place up a little bit. Sadly I've been lacking a bit of Christmas spirit this year. Which is very unlike me as I LOVE Christmas and am usually on the countdown from late November (yes, one of THOSE people :P).
But between moving house and my new housemates not celebrating Christmas (they're Chinese) there's been no tree, no decorations, no christmas carols and barely even any Christmas shopping. Most of my family want vouchers and envelopes just aren't quite the same as pretty wrapped up presents. I didn't even get to watch Love Actually when it was on TV the other night! And it's like my favourite Christmas movie ever!!!
I am making myself be more in the spirit. I'm planning menus and fun things to do. Christmassy outfits. All that jazz. And it's actually helping! I'm feeling much better. You know what else is helping? This! Try and bahumbug this. JUST TRY! Oh Brian, you still make me swoon!
I'm also looking forward to Christmas itself, my big sister's birthday on the 27th, an awesome gig at The Joynt on the 27th as well - some super awesome surf tunes to suit this steamy summer - and Lori Lee's End of Year Rockabilly Party at Morningside on the 29th. It'll be a great chance to catch up with friends and just relax and enjoy some rockin tunes and a few dances. That, and it leaves just enough time to recover before the BIG new year's eve tiki party at The Hills. I can't wait! Going to be SO. MUCH. FUN! A pool with a slide, an adult jumping castle, great friends, good food, no doubt plenty to drink and lots of good times!
Just what the Dr ordered I'd say! Are your holidays shaping up to be a big one?
