The Christmas Spirit

How incredibly fast has this year flown by? I cannot believe that tomorrow is December 1st and I'll be pulling out the reindeer, untangling the lights (bah - who needs a Rubic's Cube when you have thousands of little light bulbs and wires to unknot), risking life and limb climbing on the roof to fasten Santa on, and going a little Christmas mad.

Think Griswalds in the bush, because the crazy thing is NOBODY can see all our decorations unless they are actually coming to our place! Our driveway is 500 metres long and you cannot see our house from the street. In fact we have had tradies who have lived here for thirty years comment: "Had no bleedin idea this place was 'ere!"

But it's all about the Christmas spirit, isn't it? At least that's what I tell Big Boy as he shakes his head in disbelief at another Yard Art purchase... We even have a dinosaur pulling a sleigh for near the letterbox. There are elves, Santa falling off the roof, reindeer, and more reindeer, flashing lights and Merry Christmas signs. Next on my list is one of those massive flashing stars for our roof, I am hoping it will be visible from the coast road as you can see our house on the hill from there.

Come on people - no more jaw dropping shocked reactions - why do you think they call me

Isn't that star in a shape of a pentagram?! LOL! Can't wait to see the photos. I feel so much better that I'm not the only one battling with lights tomorrow.
