Merry Christmas!

Well it looks like we'll be getting a wet, humid Christmas this year.  It's been raining on and off for the last 2 days and the weatherman thinks it'll continue until Christmas Day.

I've been in a mad rush to wrap all the pressies and get them under the tree.  We've had to put the tree up into a container this time after last years debacle.  Our little devil in disguise decided that we'd find it really cute if he got into the lower ornaments and then chewed the string of lights!  Thankfully we caught him just as he was picking out a strand to start chewing, but really, you'd think he was a dog the way he keeps chewing on things and following us around the house.

My recent arrivals from Amazon kept me busy for all of 2 days.  I devoured the 2 books.  I liked Cast in Silence, but wasn't all that fussed on "When Demon's Walk" by Patricia Briggs.  If you haven't tried it yet, stick with her Mercy Thompson or Alpha & Omega series.  While it shows promise, it's not quite up to her recent style.

One package left to come is my copy of Supernatural (Season 4).  Can't wait to get my mitts on it and settle down to reacquaint myself with the story.  Gotta love Jensen and Jared.  I mean, who doesn't mind staring at them for a few hours.

Anyhow, I'm now looking for a Megan Washington CD.  I saw her on Rockwiz and Spicks and Specks a few weeks ago.  She has an amazing voice.  I forgot to ask when I went to JB Hi-Fi last week.  I had to go and get my mum the CD she's been subtly hinting at... yes, it is the Susan Boyle CD.  I think nearly every mum and grandma will be getting it in their chrissie stocking this year.

Have a Merry Christmas, and a wonderful 2010
