My advent calendar arrived from Germany. I bought a more fun one for Little Jo and posted it to her. They only cost a few euro each, but I am too embarrassed to tell R how much I paid for shipping and handling. I am not doing it again.
The tree in the foyer always goes up in early December. It seems to have a new set of LED lights this year.It looks department store tasteful as ever.
I like our tree to go up two weeks before christmas and be gone by the new year, but Little Jo visited last weekend and wanted to put the tree up, so R obliged her.
At work yesterday, twelve times I said, sorry, got something on. It was the work christmas bash, lots of wonderful exotic food, drinks and a band. I had nothing on but I did not want to go. I had promised to bring home hamburgers for our dinner from the fish and chip shop. With a couple of drinks and good tv, well...it is my preference. The work party will be full of foreign types, who know I love them dearly, but just can't do the work of parties anymore.
