Day 18: wrap wrap wrap wrap

Today I will mainly be wrapping presents. I'm not sure if any of them will be as big as this one though...

Days 14-17: oops

I think that is what is known as a daily blogging fail. I'm not even going to make up any excuses. First we had a family emergency, and then frankly, all kinds of other shit happened and blogging was the last thing on my mind. Now who doesn't appreciate a bit of frank honesty?! 

But quick, let us lighten the mood somewhat with a list of Christmas-sy questions that have been running through my head the last few days. 

1. Egg-nog. Is it actually made with eggs? I've never much fancied trying it, mainly because in my head I think it will taste like a melted down egg custard tart. Is this true? Can anyone tell me what it really tastes like?

2. Bruce Springsteen does a Christmas song? I heard it on the radio this morning for absolutely the first time in my life ever. Why has this never appeared on any Christmas albums?

3. Why haven't Radio 1 played Fairytale of New York yet? This is when it truly feels like Christmas to me. All together now, 'you scumbag you maggot...'

4. Will the turkey we've ordered fit in the fridge?

5. Repeat of above, except replace fridge with oven. 

6. Should we start cooking the sprouts now to ensure they are sufficiently done for our older dinner companions...? (cheeky...) 

7. Are all the You Tubers who are doing Vlogmas sponsored by Starbucks? They all seem to go there all the time and they always seem to order the egg-nog latte - refer to question 1. If I was doing Vlogmas and could afford to buy coffee everyday I would go to Espresso 10 in Middlesbrough as it is absolutely positively the best coffee in this area. And I've tried a lot. I do not darken the doors of Starbucks. Peh peh peh!

8. Will the 'Penguins' film I am going to see tomorrow make me chortle? I do hope so. 

9. Will I ever get all the presents wrapped...?

10. And finally, should WE try and do a Vlogmas for Christmas Eve? And by we I mean me and Tizz and Wavey, as Fizz is going over the borders to her homeland and will be trying not to freeze her tatties off. Will anyone be able to understand our North-East England accents? 

Fun times will surely be to follow. Stay tuned...

Day 13: writing the cards

Always an endless task, writing the cards has been so much easier with my Christmas songs and fake fire that lives in the telly:

(I'm hoping the video works but if not please excuse me. My laptop is throwing funny messages at me almost on a daily basis: you are not using genuine Windows, your intel thingy is about to explode...I think it's the universe trying to tell me to buy a new one...)

Day 12: Wear your Christmas jumper to work day

Ok so I am at home, but I am also at work, so today I am wearing my Christmas jumper to work to support Save the Children. If you're wearing one too, or would just like to make a donation you can text WOOLLY to 70050. Share the love!

Day 11: tall

Yes that tree really is tall as the lamp-post. 

Yes it is in the garden of a house and not in a town centre square. 

No there can never be enough sparkley lights. 

In other news; IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!

Day 10: my favourite things

It's not at all festive, but one of my most favourite things is a huge pot of soup simmering away...
