Do you know Christmas day is 4 days away?!??!  I’m in the midst of baking and wrapping.  The kitchen is wrecked

and the livingoom looks like a bomb has gone off.  Aah the joys of the follow-up to Christmas.  I’m loving every last second of it.  Christmas is all about children.  It’s something I was keenly aware of when I didn’t have (nor wanted) children.  As a childless couple you feel a little bit like Free Wiley after they freed him.  You’d hear reports of him trying to join other pods.  He’d be allowed to hang around for a little bit but eventually he’d wander off knowing he didn’t really belong.  Well that’s how I felt during Christmas.  Well woohoo not any longer.  I have my own little pod and we’re making our own little Christmas celebrations.  All of Squidges presents have been purchased and are waiting to be wrapped.  Wal  has been sorted and my family back home should receive packages from Amazon soon. 

 Oh and Wal and I are going out tonight, without Squidge!!  I think we’re going to a Spanish restaurant and then  for a couple (dozen) drinks at a nearby pub.  I can’t remember the last time Wal and I went out.  Thanks Victoria!  Whenever you need me to do the same just say the word!!
