Like many others, lots of secret sewing is happening in my sewing room. Some presents to be parceled up and posted in the next couple of weeks and some to be wrapped for under the Christmas Tree.
John and I have been busy cleaning and tomorrow we will start decorating the house for Christmas. On Saturday John will visit the tree farm to buy/chop down our tree.
We've had a couple of trips to Sydney in the last few days. Mum and I went to see Schools Spectacular on Saturday afternoon - such a magnificent show, while John went to the Motorbike Show at the Exhibition Centre, next to the Entertainment Centre. After that we met up with Jenni and Elizabeth and had dinner together - they'd been to the Harry Potter Exhibition at the Power House Museum. Yesterday the car was booked in for a service at the dealer we bought it from in Sydney, so John and I spent the day Christmas and birthday shopping (it's Mum's 84th birthday on Sunday). Mum has already given me her Christmas present list: two bags of premium potting mix and one bag of dynamic lifter.
I love Christmas and am looking forward to re-discovering all our decorations and favourite goodies over the next couple of days.
