The signs are slowly making themselves felt around the house:
..Christmas music is playing (you really should download the title track of this album, by the way...and their version of 'Silent Night'...actually the whole album!)
....the newest of my Christmas decorations (most courtesy of kirsty from her American trip, but the wreath was given to me by one of our crafting ladies as an early Christmas present)
.....I've been following along with JENNIFER'S FROSTY FESTIVITIES event (some wonderful inspiration there..why not pop over?)
...I've even looked out some of last year's Christmas photos to scrap!
So why am I STILL struggling to accept that Christmas really IS on it's way?......because of THIS:
...the temperature on the terrace at 11am this morning!!
Having spent most of my life in the west of Scotland then the north east of England, it just doesn't FEEL RIGHT!!
I honestly don't know how all you girls in the Southern hemisphere cope with Christmas being in the Summer!!...I realise if you're born and brought up there it must seem normal...but even all the movies and songs (well most of them) portray Christmas being a season of snow and chilly weather!
This will be my fifth Christmas here, and I STILL can't get my head around it...hence the music and crafting; trying to get me 'in the mood'!
Is Christmas rearing its head where you are?
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
