But it will all be worth it when my hubby and my son open their presents. And everyone else too, but mainly Mark & Jack. I may have got a little carried away this year... which is not good on a reduced income, but hey, it's Christmas. And I've managed not to go into debt for it.
I'm also thinking that maybe, just MAYBE, this might be a White Christmas this year? I'm not talking about
the definition of an official white Christmas used most widely, notably by those placing and taking bets, is for a single snow flake (perhaps amongst a shower of rain and snow mixed) to be observed falling in the 24 hours of 25 December.
I'm talking about a good layer of snow where WE are so we can build a snowman with Jack! And it might just happen. Maybe. If we're lucky! There's snow here, but not thick. There's hail, rain and sleet too... boo! There's loads of snow at Mums (in fact, we got caught in it yesterday and lost control of the car briefly on the way home. No harm done.) There's snow forecast for Jenny's the the next few days too...! Of cause the other thought is.... of we get the snow, will we manage to gt together for christmas! O_o I don't want snow THAT badly!
