I know, I know, I'm getting to be a big girl now (all of 17 and 6 months!) and there will come the day when people don't buy me presents for Christmas, it will just be money and a card like my parents get. But since I'm not quite an adult yet I am going to write a list, and pray for presents on the actual day. Also, people (aka relatives) have been asking what I want..
It does feel a little soon to me, but then I can't believe it's nearly November! Where did 2011 go? All of a sudden it's dark when I wake up for work, getting almost cold enough to break out the coat and the shops look like Christmas vomited on them. And pretty soon everyone will be singing Christmas carols.. oh god. I have to admit there are parts of Xmas I love, and parts I hate - the downright commercialism, unnecessary decorations that lead to insane lights on houses and tinselitus and the way it is practically forced down your throat really gets to me. Aren't I a right little Scrooge? Well.. not really. I love the idea of spending time with your family and giving your loved ones gifts to show your appreciation, I just don't see the need to spend a fortune on tacky decorations. I put my money into the actual presents, and possibly into the food - cake decorations, edible of course!
So this year as we are apparently running up to Xmas I am trying not to ask for too much, because I'm afraid I won't be able to give much. So far I have seen a few books I want..
|I saw this in River Island and saw a chance to doodle my dreams..|
|Urban Outfitters stocks this uh-may-zing book.|
|I just love decorating cakes.|
|More fashionable exploits to read about..|
