Hello lovely people! How are you? Jolly good I hope! Very sunny here, hope it is where you are too!
Well it’s only 5 weeks until the big day are you organised or totally dis-organised like me!!?? It’s Christmas on the same date every year and yet every time it catches me out. I have come to the conclusion that I am stupid, seriously folks!! This is the conversation I have in my head with myself every year.
‘I am going to start doing my Christmas shopping early, every pay day from August I will buy some presents’.
‘What a fantastic idea!’ (that’s me answering myself ).
Then nothing… and it’s November…EVERY YEAR…when will I learn not to listen to myself!!! Or maybe to actually listen to myself and then do it!!
I am sure there will be a few of you feeling the same (I hope…otherwise I am alone and that makes me feel worse!). I did get one person’s gifts last week so I feel slightly better but worryingly there is still quite a way to go! Some I will make, which is no problem, and I think online is going to be my best option for the rest as I am not the keenest of shoppers.
I sincerely hope you are not as lax as I am…please break it to me gently if you have all your gifts sorted, but I would love to know how you are getting on in your Christmas gift quest : )
Now onto this week’s Sunday selection which is totally un-Christmas related…or is it? Perhaps a few Christmas gift ideas in there for the music lover in your life? Anyway, I watched a programme on Friday night about Mr. Bowie and decided to search for related creative makes and came up with these beauties! I hope ya like ’em?
What a hero Mr. Bowie is, so many good tunes. My shop and blog are named after one of his songs called ‘Kooks’. Me and my husband played this song a lot when our son was born (he was premature so it was all a bit of a worry) the song holds many memories, some a little sad but mostly happy.
Anyway, have a fab Sunday and a super week ahead!
