OKAY! OKAY!! YOU TALKED ME INTO IT! & OTHER THINGS!!











THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR COMMENTS SUPPORTING MY DILEMMA RE THE JAPAN TRIP!! ALL WERE UNANIMOUS FAVOURING ME GOING...AND GUESS WHAT???> YOU WERE RIGHT..!!

BEFORE I EVEN KIND OF CONTEMPLATED IT...MY SON MANAGED TO "HACK" INTO MY FREQUENT FLYER POINTS SITE...AND BOOK MY AIR FARES TO AND FROM JAPAN..AND I HAD TO LAUGH..HE KNOWS HIS OLD MUM THROUGH AND THROUGH!! HE SAID IN HIS EMAIL HAVE BOOKED IT ALL..AND WE SHALL MEET UP WITH OLD FRIENDS (FROM HIS SCHOOL DAYS..I KNOW THEM ETC)..AND THEN YOU CAN CHECK OUT CATH KIDSTONS STORES..AND THE LAURA ASHLEY STORE..!!

HE CAN READ MY MIND LIKE A BOOK!! PLUS I KNOW HE HAS A KIND OF GIRLFRIEND HE WOULD LIKE ME TO MEET!! SECRET MUMS BUSINESS!! I KNOW..I DONT THINK HE KNOWS I KNOW..IF YOU GET MY DRIFT..

ANWYAY...SO YES!! I AM GOING...!! STILL WRESTLING WITH IT ALL...BUT IT IS ONLY FOR A WEEK..AND I SHALL ENJOY IT..EXCEPT THAT IT IS VERY COLD NOW IN JAPAN..WINTER..SO I HATE TO THINK OF WEARING HEAVY WINTER CLOTHES...BUT I AM SURE I WILL OVERCOME THAT LITTLE HICCUP QUITE QUICKLY!!

SOO WITH CHRISTMAS LUNCH AT MY HOUSE..I HAVE TO GET REALLY ORGANIZED VERY QUICKLY!! I AM NOT IN THE MOOD TO SET UP A BIG CHRISTMAS TREE THIS YEAR..I ALWAYS PUT UP A BIG TREE...WITH PRESSIES UNDERNEATH...BUT WITH MY COUSIN NOT HERE THIS YEAR...DEAR DEAR SUE PASSED AWAY IN APRIL...I CANNOT QUITE DO THE SAME THING...SOOO I HAVE DECIDED JUST TO HAVE A FEW LITTLE LITTLE FAUX TREES AROUND THE HOUSE...DECORATED..WITH PRESSIES UNDERNEATH...
A KIND OF A BIT OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT...BUT STILL SOMETHING I THINK SUE WOULD APPROVE OF!!

SO I BOUGHT THE FIRST LITTLE TREE TODAY...I HAVE PLACED IT ON THE TABLE TENNIS TABLE..yes IT IS STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS ROOM!!...JUST STUCK IT THERE..WITH NOTHING ELSE ADORNING IT YET.....BUT WITH THE FIRST PRESENT UNDERNEATH...YES!! SMACKOS FOR SOOTY~!~!!

I HAVE THE PAPER AND CARDS READY TO WRAP GOODIES UNDERNEATH...AND I FOUND A LOT OF "JAPANESEY" TYPE GIFT CARDS...I THOUGHT THAT WAS APPROPRIATE...(THEY COULD BE CHINESE...BUT WHATEVER!!)...

I AM GOING OUT SHOPPING TOMORROW MORNING TO TRY TO FIND A NICE LITTLE WHITE CHRISTMAS TREE...AND I WANT GORGOUS BLUE/SILVER LITTLE DECS...WELL!! THAT IS THE PLAN!!

AND I KNOW I GO ON & ON ABOUT DRIED ROSES/FLOWERS ETC...BUT I HAVE JUST PUT THE LAST LOT OF ROSES I DRIED..PLUS THOSE MY HUBBY BOUGHT FOR OUR 22ND ANNIV BACK IN JULY...IN A LOVELY CONTAINER...IN MY LOUNGEROOM...SO SITTING WATCHING TV...LOOKING ACROSS THE FLOWERS OVER TO MELBOURNE IN THE DISTANCE...
I THINK THEY LOOK GOOD...AND THEY SAVE ON FRESH FLOWERS!!

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST..THANKS KERRYANNE FOR MY FIRST EVER PRESSIE FROM A BLOG SITE...I HAVE PLACED THESE GORGEOUS FAUX GOODIES IN A COVERED DOME IN MY LOUNGE...BUT HAD TO WARN MY 85 YO DAD...WHO EATS EVERYTHING!! PLEASE DAD DO NOT EAT THESE GOODIES...THEY ARE FAKE..FAUX...YOU WILL SNAP YOUR TEETH!! DO NOT TOUCH!!

OKAY..FORGOT TO SAY TOOK A NICE PHOTO OF SOOTY GUARDING HIS "LION" PLASTIC TOY!!

I THINK THAT IS ENOUGH FOR ANYONE TO READ...

SO HAVE A LOVELY WEEKEND EVERYONE...
