I’m still not ready for Christmas, quite, but I am slowly crossing things off the list:
Write and send out cards of both types.
- Knit like there’s no tomorrow (I’m not doing many knitted presents this year, but there are a couple I want to get done).
- Put up tree and decorate. (In progress!)
- Wrap presents.
Write christmas card list (e-cards and tangible ones) Buy cards and stamps (tomorrow). Work out budget for presents (tomorrow when Mum comes over). Go present shopping – both online (asap) and IRL (w/ Mum tomorrow, prob also later this week).(Presents all DONE DONE DONE! HA!!)
I went to the HRC Christmas Party today… or the end bit of it, at least. I got waylaid by my neighbour, and although I did need to speak to him myself, I didn’t mean to end up talking for so long! Still, I got there in time to nab three chocolate fingers, listen to the band’s second set, and then go up and have a sing with them for the last few songs. Which was fun! I didn’t have time to think about it and freak out, which I think helped. And in a weird way, since I’d had a bit of a wobble when I first got there because it was a large, strange place filled with people (oh noes!), being crammed on stage felt like a much more familiar and safe environment! I know, I’m just odd.
