Merry Christmas!

For anyone reading blogs today, I thought I’d share pics of the evening we went to look at Christmas lights. Hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas Day (those who celebrate it) and a wonderful normal Wednesday for those who don’t 😉













Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Deco Edition

We pulled our fingers out Sunday and got Christmas “up”. Next weekend is full of Christmas parties and gymnastics galas, so it had to be done. And who am I kidding, we never wait until December 1 anyway.

All I Want For Christmas

I’ve been tagged by the lovely Rhian over at The Only Way Is Melbourne to share my Christmas list. I already posted my “in your dreams” wish list – a list of things that, were anything and everything possible, that is what I’d want. It included bringing back the dead, so that tells you just how much of an “in your dreams” list it was!

So for the purpose of this exercise, I’ll give you my legit Christmas wish list. Which won’t be fulfilled because I already got a Canon 5D Mark III which is my Christmas presents for the rest of eternity.

That aside, here are 5 things I’d like for Christmas.

1. A GHD. I have a hair straightener, an el cheapo one. It does the job, mostly, but I want one that makes my hair shiny and soft. I’m assuming, for the price, a GHD would do that.

2. Some funky jewellery or a gift certificate to one of those fashion jewellery places. They seem to be everywhere now and I’ve seen lots of chunky, bright pieces that I’d love to have! There’s a few outfits I have that need something to spruce it up.

3. A new computer desk. We got ours for free when friends went overseas, and it serves its purpose, especially for the price! But we need to rearrange the office to fit in the weights bench we just got, and I think a new desk would hide some of the “mess” currently on this one. Thankfully I won a $100 gift card to OfficeWorks from the awesome Deb at Home Life Simplified, so this wish might actually come true!

4. Camping gear. Like, all the gear. Well, the bare necessities for a family of 3 to go away for a few days and not be completely rugging it. I’m talking air mattresses, gas cookers, tables, lights, etc. I’d take just a really good tent….seems like a good place to start.

5. An iPhone 5. A white one. This won’t happen, but there’s a better chance of this happening than bringing back the dead!  Our contracts expire in April (we think) so the plan at this stage is to try and hold out until that is up, then possibly switch carriers. If we get impatient and can’t wait, we may have new phones as early as February.

So there you have it. My wish list. Not all that unreasonable, I don’t think! And now to come up with 5 bloggers to tag to share their list. If you have already been tagged/participated, I apologise! Please don’t feel any obligation to join in, but come back and let me know if you do!
