Ad{dress}ing...

I saw on the news this evening it is only two weeks until Christmas...for some reason that kind of shocked me. I can't get my head around how fast the last few weeks have gone, and now I feel myself hurtling toward new year...2007...always a time for addressing what you have done, and what you need to do next. I am still in the midst of all the busyness of now and don't want to think about how quickly that is all approaching......

To keep my mind off that, I am so pleased that the next few days are going to be filled with such good things {and people} in the form of these two girls {three?}....I am training it down to London tomorrow {Vogue bought but not read, iPod charged} and will be there for a restorative four nights. I have been crazy busy the last few days but nipped into town on Sunday to get some things {all my clothes have pickle holes!} and as you can see {almost}, a dress. I just had to have a dress. It is my Christmas present to myself.

....So today was all about finishing off, {madly finishing off and getting everything done before I go!} and I was up early. When I ran out late afternoon to go to the post office, I felt my first bite of Winters cold....and it hailed like crazy today too. {as long as the rain stopped for a while I didn't mind!!}....I was surprised {not sure why!?} to find the post office queue to the door and several Christmas trees alight in windows - see I said it had crept up on me!!! ;))

I may pop in over the next few days, but maybe not?!! *I wish, wish, wish so many of you could join us in London!!*
hugs, xox

i had to smile when you said your clothes were full of 'pickle holes.' the non-jeweller folks must have wondered what in the world you were talking about!

have a fantastic time in lovely London - hope you get to wear it out to some fabby places (and do take care in Liberty if that's one of your stops - I went in yesterday for knitting needles and somehow managed to come away with three yards of fabric too, it's a dangerous place!)

Christmas has kind of crept up on me too - I'm not even sure how it happened but I guess I must have been living in an alternate universe where I missed all the obvious signs. I'm glad to see I am not the only one.

Really, it enchants everything to me what beams... I take advantage of and I wish Merry Christmas you.
