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?
