quickly quickly to climb the work mountain, i took a shortcut in the end.
there has been sweets. scary films. charlie and lola. toffee apples. paper snowflakes. paper sprinkles. dissertation writing. tea. christmas countdown. sleepless nights. the christmas with my friends whom i live with at uni, with gifts and christmas dinner and bunny crackers and christmas songs and dances.
oh christmas souls.... four whole days. can it really be true? i have filled the days up to christmas with all sorts of exciting plans and adventures.
sunday i meet my beautiful fairy emmeline. to exchange our homemade gifts.
monday i help father buy a couple of last minute gifts and then up to the haggerty house which is filled with cousins and cousins and chickens. we have the snow wish.
tuesday we all go ice skating. a celebration for fraser's birthday. oh all my cousins are growing up too completely fast.
wednesday.... christmas eve. home baking, wrapping gifts with paper and ribbon and magic, watching polar express with mother and samuel.emmeline's home made gift includes giant cupcakes with butter frosting and sugared flowers for faeries. and some homemade vintage-button earrings. i cannot wait. we are meeting for starbucks, christmas drinks.yesterday was full of cake baking and lazy days and tilly~rose snuggles and whisper mail and christmas wishes and creating magic and listening to christmas songs. and peter pan.
aw my dear.... this made me giggle and grin so hugely when the wonderfully creative notebookdoodles gave me this.
but then to hear the romantic dreamer the drifter and the gypsy and the cutest and sweetest the yellow elephant have given it to me too.... wow. my work mountain was made so much easier. thank you. you are all so very wonderful.
in return... i will make my special award. one that i wanted to make a while back.
i will make the snow wish for you too. all of you. so we can make snow angels and faeries and rosie can make stars.
....it's sunday. i had butter icing for breakfast. ssh.
