Merry Christmas 2013.

a laundry basket decorated for Christmas Today I offer a tip which if followed may just free your Christmas preparations up long enough to give you that much needed extra time. 

Park your laundry basket full of laundry which can just wait until boxing day. Run around your home and gather everything that is in the wrong place and pop it on top of your previously mentioned laundry basket. Place a brightly colored material over the whole catastrophe. Add some Christmas decorations and top with something delicious. Grab a beverage of your choice, take a deep breath and go hug a critter, kid, person or just yourself.repeat after me (very loudly)” FAIR DINKUM, I AM AWESOME! two of the dogs that live at gentlestitches.

Merry Christmas from us here to you there! X X X X X 🙂

  5. I AM AWESOME !!!!! (sure you can hear me ) SO ARE YOU 🙂
    I do something similar when someone is expected …grab a huge shopping bag and dump everything that is unsightly in it…the best joke is, that bag will remain in the same hidden place for weeks and even months 😉

  6. Great advice… I’m sure that it could apply to all sorts of other family get-togethers too… just substitute Easter Eggs, Pumpkins, Party poppers as appropriate.
    Now, where’s that terrier to cuddle?
