When you talk of Christmas in Winter here in Australia most people associate it with the whole Christmas in July phenomenon.
But not at my work, they're having Christmas in Winter in August.
As being in charge of the display I had to do a Christmas theme, I had to fossick about and seek out what was left after last December. Not much.....Okay so provided nobody buys anything we should be safe. No people are buying things and we are stuck for anything to fill the gaps that keeps with the Christmas theme.
Who's idea was this? By December we'll no doubt have a wide choice of Christmas goods but now? ARRGHH!
This has marginally put a damper on my plans to make my Christmas Puddings this month, just marginally though. I figure if I get in early there's plenty of time to make more if my mother gets the whim to give them away again. And besides it won't be too hot this month to have boiling pots all day on the stove. The kitchen sure gets hot.
Also on the Christmas front I went to my local video store today and rented some Saturday Night Veiwing. Christmas with the Cranks and Bad Santa, the last one I'm very keen to see. As for the Cranks, well since I am the proud owner of A Diva's Christmas Carol and Santa with Muscles, it's bound to be good.
While viewing tonight I am hoping to get some more knitting done. I am pleased to report, my dear readers, that work has recommenced on the sock. The sock now has a partial foot. I am incredibly thrilled!
Until next time,
A bona fide red headed Scrooge and damn proud of it.
