December is finally here. The last month of the year. Not long til we say good-bye to 2014 and welcome 2015. And, it is only a few weeks away until Christmas! I am always excited about this festive season, I love the atmosphere during this time of the year. Christmas decoration is every where, in the shops, at the restaurants/cafes, on the streets, just every where! Oh…and I love Christmas carols too! Love, love, love this festive season!
Most of my Christmas shopping is done. This year, I am getting better at keeping my ground and maintaining my priorities. It’s so easy to get carried away and end up buying things that actually I don’t need. Choosing the right gifts for every one is also a headache for me. Especially for the children and the male ones. Surely, I can’t give them Lego and socks, or book and I tunes card again, can I ? 🙂
Since most of my shopping is done, I can relax and don’t have the pressure of going to the crowd shopping mall hunting for pressies. Instead I can just bask in the good of the season, ocean swims, alfresco dinner and togetherness. Also, today is the first day of summer here in down under. Bring on the blue skies, warm nights, outdoor cinemas and long beach days. I am hoping and praying that this summer the temperature will just settle around 30 max. I am so not looking forward to 40 degree heat!
What about you? Have you been shopping for Christmas gifts? Have you put up the Christmas tree ? Whenever you decide to put up your tree, or even if you don’t put up a tree, at all, I hope you have a fun-tastic holiday season!
