Getting into the spirit

This weekend was the start of the Christmas season, for me.

I downloaded the new Michael Buble 'Christmas' album. I ate mince pies and drank beer as I wandered round, in my wellies and sunglasses, one of the big Christmas Fairs in Nairobi. I started making some Christmas gifts and wrote a few cards. And I had my first Christmas dinner, complete with paper hats, Christmas pudding, crackers and a visit from Santa. (And then I had my second one, at school, today!)

This week I have two concerts to attend, carols to sing and more crackers to pull. As I am going to Ethiopia for my Christmas,  I think I better soak all the Christmas spirit up now, while it's going!

PS- Don't you hate it when someone says, "oh, you should have come for dinner/drinks/whatever last night," the next day. A belated invite is not an invite, is it?


  1. Glad you were able to start getting into the spirit! I had fun doing Christmas-y things during my weekend, as well.

  2. For what you say, it could be Britain all along :-)

  3. Yes Pet-it could be at times. Although , not many places in the UK would you be wearing sunglasses this time of year...


Thanks for leaving a comment-it is always nice to hear from you!
