This is the time of the year when I still have a lot of work to do but seriously cannot get into it. After a long year of running around, organising, cajoling and threatening the kids into action, researching, assisting, hassling, worrying (you get the picture) - I just want to sit at home and stare at the horizon.

My house is situated halfway up a hill with a view of the whole surrounding area all the way to the sea. It was one of the reasons I bought it (with affordability coming a close 2nd).

So I just drag my feet to work every day and go through the motions. My recently discovered interest in blogging helps me to get through the day and for that I thank all my fellow bloggers. Its really interesting to follow updates on such a wide range of subject matter. So thanks for keeping me sane. Roll on the holidays!!

Here's a little picture of my mom's Christmas tree from last year to get us in the holiday mood - she always goes the whole hog with her decorating.


  1. Sounds like you need a good break, or some quiet time. Don't we all?

  2. I am with you on this one. The year must end now. Holidays need to start before widespread homicides do ;-)

  3. Kitty - I do need a break but it gets like this every year and I'll just hang on!

    Tamara - Totally! I can think of a few peeps on a daily basis that I could quite happily dispose of!
