Slowing down time... any ideas???

I cannot believe it's christmas in 3 days! I'm just not prepared, though I'm frantically trying to be. Plans keep getting changed last minute, which tbh, kinda throws me out as basically I'm the sort of (pathetic) person who likes to know where I'm at, and what I'm going to be doing on any given day. In truth, change scares the living crap out of me and however laid back i'd like to be, I'm really not. End of story.

Carlos keeps laughing at me and my little lists which are in evidence all over the house... and in fact some of them are not little lists at all... but actually wacking great BIG lists, of all the things we still have to do. And I almost wanna smile myself, as the sensible part of me knows some of it will never get ticked off - well, not this side of 2009 anyway. But i'm a list maker - and if you are too, then you'll totally understand this is something I have to do... I guess you are either a list maker - or you're not. And I am.

So today I managed to tick a few things off. We got the Christmas food shop done at Asda. tick. Delivered pressies to Donna's house. tick. I made the reindeer food packages. tick.

You can download this bag topper for FREE, plus a fantastic voucher to kate's store, and recipe's and more toppers, inc snowman soup here

Carl did some jobs around the house while I made this pretty thing below.

It's a Making Memories 7x7.5" chipboard bauble which you decorate as you like. It was quick, fun and calming.

tick tick... and that's how it goes. The clock ticks quicker than I do, but i'm getting there... just about... Are you? :-)

ok, off to watch Will Smith in Hancock and relax for a bit. We watched 'Wanted' last night and though i'm no fan of Ms Jolie ordinarily, it was a fantastic film - if you loved the matrix, you'll love this!

Many lists here too. Most of the items are ticked off. :)

We lit our 4th candle today :)

Lovely to think of all the lights around the world:
