the excitement and anticipation of Christmas in our house, it hasn't felt this exciting since I was a child... seeing Busy so excited is so sweet,
the trip on a cold rainy morning last weekend with chainsaw in tow as Chef ,Busy and I looked for the perfect tree on the side of the road - which we found, and have decorated with lots of handmade decorations, hearing her come home from preschool having learnt Christmas carols and get the words wrong but it is so sweet.... and teaching her how important it is to give presents too... answering her questions about Christmas " Does Santa have Claws? Why is he called Santa Claus then?"
that Busy can now write her name all by herself and it makes me so excited, that so many of my friends are having babies, that we live here and that I walked through town with Busy today and was gone for 2 hours just running into people and stopping for a chat on a Saturday morning, that Busy is made to feel so welcome everywhere we go, that my cushions have sold even better than I ever imagined and every time someone buys one they tell me the little story about why they are buying that place, I love that, the smell of Chefs curry for dinner, that last week I saw the Lemonheads and was in a room full of people who love them as much as me and we all screamed every word to every song and it was so ace,
the fact that this little visitor ( below) came inside the other day and I didn't really mind, but I was able to ring someone to put her outside again, but not too far away as she hangs around a lot ( I don't actually know if it is a girl snake i just prefer to think of it as one) and she came and said hello again today from up in a tree nearby and it was nice to see her again,
that it is the weekend and we are catching up with friends for breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner tomorrow in three separate locations and I cannot wait.
