Only 32 Days to Christmas

This year I am struggling to get into the Christmas Spirit - very, very unusual for me.

Working so hard on the renovations, getting everything ready for Ivan's return from his trip, writing my book and all other things have stepped in the way and I am FRUSTRATED!

I love Christmas, I love the preparation, the decorations, the shopping, the baking and everything else; but I can't seem to connect this year.

So, this morning I put on a Christmas CD (Celtic Woman - lovely) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDnZyVMhzUk&feature=related  and I sorted out my Christmas purchases - Hmm need to do a little extra shopping for one or two special people. Sang along to the music and got in the groove.

I am also going to get out the decorations today - bring them up from the garage, so tomorrow on a full day at home, I can begin to transform my house into a magical Christmas Wonderland.

Look out for some photos.

How are your Christmas preparations going?
