Time To Start My Chrissie Engine

OK it's time to rev up my Christmas spirit! I'm on my second day of vacation, so dashed into the City with a long, long list, amazingly completed it all in under 3 hours, hurtled back up the Freeway, stopped off at The Stirling pub for a glass of bubbles & a mince pie to celebrate the successful completion of my mission & have plonked everything down on the sofa for Later to deal with. No-one else is home & the peace & quiet is magical, with just puppy Lulu & this year's Playlist of Millie's Worst & Most Cringeworthy Chrissie music loudly blaring softly playing in the background.

Thanks to everyone who left comments & voted in the previous post. It seems dear Hedgies we fell about 999,955 votes short of the 1,000,000 I was hoping to use as a bargaining tool in my network submission, but anywho........ What was most gratifying however is that Option #2 (Yes - as long as the blog disappears) to the question Should The Laurel Hedge become a reality TV show in 2012? received ZERO votes - yay!

I'll be back tomorrow for my last post of the year, in the meantime, I need to brace myself as MOTH the Christmas Grinch is due to make his annual appearance any moment now. My spies have forewarned me that he's heading up the Freeway now in the truck. It's easily recognizable as it's the only one without tinsel wrapped around it's bull bar!!

  1. Well done on the 3 hour shop Millie. I have just started my holidays as of 2pm today. Yehaaa. Am looking forward to a celebratory drink later this evening.

  2. Wishing you all the best Millie and be sure to do exactly what the label advises....take it easy!

  3. I went into town today after a week at home working, and finally am feeling a touch of the christmas spirit - being around happy people, christmas music, and people with lots of carry bags certainly helped. The children are all complaining they don't feel like its Xmas either - I think the cool weather has something to do with it, we're usually sweltering! On the to do list tomorrow is "find and bring back a xmas tree" so we'll head off down the road and find a pencil pine that's 'just right'... of course it will touch the roof and we'll all say .... hmmm, didn't think it was THAT big...

  4. YOU I'd like to Christmas shop with. Anyone that celebrates their shopping accomplishments with bubbles and sweets is my hero.

    Millie and Moth - May the Joy and Peace of Christmas be with you now and throughout the new year; yes this even applies even to Grinches.

    Ho..Ho..Ho. xo Deb

  5. Oh good job deserved that drink at your gorgeous local. I too have insisted on Christmas music 24/7 ... Bing or Buble anyone ;)

  6. I hope everything comes together so you can enjoy yourself, and your music, on Christmas day. Remember to drink as much wine and sherry during the preparation of the dishes as goes into the dishes themselves!

    I am glad MOTH doesn't have tinsel around his bullbars! That could leave deep psychological scars on a man! Likewise, I hope after one glass too many of bubbly Lulu doesn't end up with felt Reindeer antlers on!

    Anyhow, no matter how you choose to celebrate, We wish you and your family a fantastic Christmas,
    David & Peter.
    PS - Willoughby says hi to Lulu!

  7. Happy Holidays to you and MOTH! See you in the new year!

Without a quickening of the heart.
