Ha! This made me laugh. Think you've ticked off the two most important things (1) Surrounded by loving family (2) Christmas loo roll. I didn't even realise that the latter existed. What a sheltered world I live in. For someone who has exquisite design sense, you do have an enormous capacity for KITSCH!!! Happy Crimble.

Brilliant and love the warm sentiments towards the end of your list. Always good to remember the Reason for the Season and give thanks.

I've read all your posts - just not always commented, Julia.

You reminded me to charge the camera battery, but overall you are SO right about what the priorities should be .... thanks for that.

One more look at Julia's blog? Priceless.

Angie said...

I am so not ready ...mainly in the cleaning area ...but how much does it really matter ... maybe do a bit on boxing day morn as we have people round in the after noon. The scent of gammon and all the bits I add to the water is wafting up the stairs and it smells like Christmas as for mince pies ...vicki will have to make more ...we ate them lol. Have a wonderful Christmas with your family xx

Got home from having my hair cut this morning to find a letter saying our electricity will be off for 4 hours tommorrow morning. Oh joy, just what you want on Christmas Eve. As we're visiting in the afternoon, looks like a late night tonight cooking cocktail sausages, making cheese straws and slurping copious amounts of wine to sustain me. Merry Christmas, One and All!

Paige said...

The list says it all. What a giggle. Enjoy your christmas and new year and a big thanks for starting this addictive snooping.

Cardarian said...

Love your checklist! Mine is about the same as yours but I did manage to buy the last present yesterday! Have fun, be happy! Enjoy the mince pies ( wish I had some!) and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Susanne said...

Sounds like you're ready in all the important departments - enjoy your holidays!

Love that checklist you've made. I am sure it is all finished by now and you are having a lovely Christmas. This is the first time I've been able to get on the internet in days, and I'm suffering withdrawal. Had to come to your place first and get my giggles for the day.

BTW, you can avoid any last minute problems when you are given four hours to finish Christmas gifts, wrap everything, pack, and bring things to eat. And of course, I have plenty of batteries! Have an AWESOME Christmas
