So work is freakin' mental at the minute as we approach year end and everyone frantically tries to sort out all the crap they should have attended to months ago. I wouldn't give a toss except that usually "crap they should have attended to months ago" often translates into "stuff I should have given Lyndar months ago and now I expect her to sort it yesterday". The upshot is that I am permanently cross and knackered and in no humour to do any present shopping, wrapping or card writing let alone any of the cleaning, tidying or decorating that I had promised myself I'd have organised by Christmas. [With a week to go, I've decided it's ok to use the word itself without an asterisk in sight.]
I am still wearing my lopsided purple glasses despite hours spent scouring opticians; to add insult to injury the right lens is scratched to bits so it's like I'm permanently looking at the world through a fingerprint on the glass or something. Fuzz-eeeeee.
Last weekend was a good one at least: I'd my work Do on Thursday night, off Friday, got to IKEA in Belfast on Saturday, and then got the Christmas tree bought and decorated on Sunday. Mostly I decorated the tree, much to the amusement of Himself's sister who seems to be under the impression that I'm a complete control freak. Which I'm not. Sure didn't I let Himself hang one of the baubles wherever he wanted? And I haven't moved it.
