Christmas shopping ....

All my good intentions have gone down the tubes. Work pressures have ensured that I had to keep putting off the shopping trips and I have also now arrived at the point where I haven't a clue what to get my kids, friends or other family members. An expedition today resulted in plenty spent for little obvious return and I am only reasonably certain of one item being welcome so far!

Oh joy, oh rupture!

And I have just woken up to the fact that I have a sermon to prepare for Sunday, Feast of the Holy Innocents. Thinking cap time!

To all those who stumble across this blog, may I extend the wish that you have a truly joyous and memorable Christmas and a new year that brings all you hope for.

Don't you just despise that last-minute shopping? I'm pooped! Best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Christmas - I'll pop back in here w/my New Year's wishes next week!

Shopping successful, Church Services completed without hitch - Christmas Dinner delicious and the wine to accompany it fantastic. And a call from my Oz in laws to make the day complete. Thanks folks - hope yours was as good.
