Today we are going out to try and find a new Christmas Tree.
I saw an amazing LED tree at my friend Sandra's, and fell in love with it.
I know that it is highly likely we won't be able to find one exactly the same, but I can try!

ABOVE:  This is a much better photo of her tree than the one I put up last week.  It's very simple, but I just love the blue led lights all over it.  *DROOL*

Maybe I will end up with our 'old' tree, and that will be OK too.  But I can still look! *smiles*  Hmmm, just thought of it... maybe we can just buy some blue LED lights!  It's an option.

ABOVE: Once we get a tree up, it will go in this corner of the lounge.  Those are all the Christmas boxes I got wrapped up last night.  I did well.  They are 'family' boxes, instead of heaps of individual presents wrapped up.  This took so much less time and crabbiness to do.

And that is a good thing.  hee hee.

Right, I'm off to get some washing on, tidy the house and then go shoppping... with the thousands of others out there.


Well after exhaustive searching... we didn't find a new tree.  So we bought some new LED tree lights in white and blue, it's the best we could do.

Went to Sylvia Park and had lunch, and bought these:

ABOVE:  they are artificial, but gorgeous none the less.  They were in a 'pop up' store in the mall.  It was so tempting to get a bigger table arrangement, but they were just freakin' expensive as.  So, I compromised and got the two smaller ones in the  colours I love.

ABOVE:  A new Santa, got him from The Importer in the Apex Centre across the road from Sylvia Park.

So, we did do some shopping, got a couple of gifts that were missing from the list and I'm almost DONE on shopping for Christmas.  Thank God.

ANON:  Ahhh yes, I am a 'shopaholic'.... I've said so myself on many occasions.  SO IS STEW.

I DON'T owe you or anyone an explanation about anything we choose to buy, do or whatever.

Your comment was deleted because it was just not NICE .... and said more about YOU than me for sure.
YOU are not a nice person.  Didn't your mother ever say "If you don't have anything nice to say, then say NOTHING?"  I think you should practise that, don't you?

Moving on... Stew's sister Khady is here for an early Christmas dinner with us as she is away over Christmas.  We are enjoying catching up with her.

End of Day:  well we had a lovely day, followed by a lovely evening with Khady here.  Tomorrow we shall put up the Christmas Tree... finally!
nite nite


  1. Love the Santa. .....

  2. Your arrangements and Santo are beautiful! How is the cough??? Easing I hope? That blue tree is very unusual!

    1. The cough does seem to be easing a bit, thank goodness. Fingers crossed for good X-ray results towards the end of the week too.
