autumn-poems-header-min.jpg

well with autumn now started its around this time of year i start thinking about things for xmas from films to watch to sorting pressies early stashed away.

just to give a nice little heads up its only 15 and a bit weeks till christmas, about 4 paydays if your monthly paid xD

lucky for me this year the wife who is normally a complete and utter nightmare to buy for as she never normally knows what she wants or can think of anything either.

on this occasion she has started collecting minnie mouse stautes last year, so have bought her a couple of them and there not cheap neither.

our usual play is the 3 things rule and i usually do that a good 5-6 months before hand and basically is she comes up with three things she wants.

I buy one of them and let her mum and sister know the other two.

Then she ends up with 3 thing she wants and not know who has got what till the day :D

 

also we always spend with the family sometimes at home, sometimes we go out for christmas day. my wifes mum is disabled now so going out can be a nice change as well.

though her mum isnt keen as she just cant cook anymore and she hates it, she used to live in the kitchen and loved feeding the 5000

anyway this is to get you all thinking, have you begun to think what you are doing this year for christmas?

 

we nearly lost her mum about 5 years ago. 6 weeks in intensive care and was touch and go to say the least.

now every christmas counts like never before and is more important than ever.

family to me is the most important thing to me.

 

so all thing's christmas whats you thoughts?

We are quite low key.  I buy my own gift and he just pays towards  or for it depending on the amount. 

 

The thing we enjoy most is the time off together.  

 

Always hope any and all bad weather hits while we are off .

 

 

Tree goes up always as we watch Gremlins .

 

While being watched by our Gremlins  , nope not the kids the Chinchillas who are limited on  run round time as nom noms electric cable will not end well .

@Basil he did at that . Unless it was round he never took any notice of it and found it boring 😞😞.

 

I wonder IF that's why he married me as I am definitely round and definitely  NOT boring  😁🤣🤣🤣🤣.

 

He's Just weird his whole family are .

 

I love Animal he is just mental like me  , very little or no  thought  before action 😊🤣🤣.

 

Also Beaker when anything goes  wrong  i become a none sensical  jibering wreak . 

 

YES we can learn a lot from The Muppets 😊❤❤.

 

Jim Henson  was a legend in every way . A personal  fave was The Storyteller John Hurt ABSOLUTELY PERFECT series.
