What? December already?
A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month! Wow! It's the first day of December already, which means Christmas is going to be here before I know it. I've barely started decorating, although traditionally we don't start decorating until the first day of December. I've pulled out a few things from their boxes in the shed just to set the scene to celebrate Christmas early with some of my family who visited us two weeks ago, as they can't be here with us for Christmas. The Christmas tree won't be in the lounge room this year, the picture above and below show what a part of the lounge room looks like so far. It's going to be our office (quiet) and music room(noisy), with piano and electric drum kit, and PC and desk. (See the contrast? But we need music to stimulate work and study, right?) The walls have been painted "Coffee Cake" by Taubmans to replace the pink. I love love love that paint colour, it looks delicious enough to eat. Can you see the lampshade? (Read last post) I've also finally written words on one of these metal plaques I got ages ago, which I painted white and antiqued. I just love the word "Patisserie", the thought of cakes, pastries, puffs, tarts and things like that makes my mouth water. I told you the Christmas decoration has barely started. Often when my kids give me a pinch and a punch for the first day of the month, it will be followed by "a step on the toe for being so slow", and only ocassionally "a flick and a kick for being so quick", which means no matter what I do, I never win. But on this first day of December, I want to give you a big smile and send my regards your way to wish you all the best, have a beaut week.
