It’s beginning to feel a lot like …

Christmas

Christmas!

I love this time of year.  Even though it is a very busy time, I love the anticipation of the end of the year and celebrating with family and friends.  I have been busy at work trying to finalise the academic year before I enjoy a break over the summer holidays.  Invitations are coming in thick and fast for Christmas functions, family nights, parties and get-togethers with friends.  Christmas decorations are popping up throughout the city and … at home!

We dragged out the dusty old box from under the house today containing the ‘fake’ Christmas tree we bought off Gumtree many years ago.  Poppy decorated it for hours within an inch of a …. bauble.  I must say, as I type this I can see the twinkling lights out of the corner of my eye, and the house feels very festive indeed.

Yesterday we were in the city and ‘popped’ into the opening of the new Myer Hobart.  I can’t actually say ‘popped in’ because it was more like a line up!  I am not sure what I was thinking!  James was in the pram and I was dodging all the other Mum’s and their prams, plus hundreds of interested folk, keen to lay an eye on ‘their’ new department store, after the devastating fire of the original building in 2007.

Bursting into the retail space just prior to Christmas, the new store looked very sharp and … Christmasy!  A retailers delight.
