Oh Lordy of the lordiness. Not only is crimbo like 6 weeks away, ellies 10th birthday is next week. She doesn't know what she wants for either and Im stucked. She did say she would be quite happy to have money but you can't wrap £50 in a nice bow can you? Im actually going to make her a paper bag book and trim it up with spaces for her to fill. But for crimbo - jeeeeeeeeez. Its so hard to decide. I haven't bought a jot - not a sausage of anything. No cards, no extra trimmings (I buy at least 12 baubles extra a year for our tree. At least 3 ornaments go on each branch. My poor tree will not want to come out of the attic this year knowing that its poor branches will be overloaded with red and gold deckalations). Actually I have decided that everyone I know will get sprouts. After all - sprouts are for crimbo and not for life. BLUERGH!
