Only 10 days remain before we can eat and be merry. I really enjoy the build up to Christmas day…. shopping for gifts, fruit mince pies (mmm), putting up the tree, listening to Christmas carols and wrapping gifts. We always complain about how full the shopping centers are, yet we find ourselves there ever too often looking for gifts for special people in our lives. I only get some time off from work from the 24th but things have already slowed down at the office and it’s not affecting my Christmas spirit one bit.
