Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

25 Nov

I’m a bit late with this one.  So late, I haven’t had time to look for a photo so I’m going with an illustration:

It’s not the only thing I’m behind on.  Christmas shopping barely started, when I’ve usually got most of it done by now.

Today it is exactly one month to Christmas.  

Not panicking.  Not panicking at all.

    Not worrying much about presents this year… have lots of cards to write.
    Great green find.
    Hugs and Blessings.

    Oh, that’s right, it’s nearly Christmas – breathe, breathe, breathe!

    Cute green face!
    Here, it was one month til Christmas yesterday (Germans give out Christmas presents on Christmas Eve). One less day for me to get everything sorted. And I’m making Christmas dinner for 9 before that – in two weeks in fact. Aarggh!

    I am slowly getting things together – but I had a wish list from Fraser that now has lots of telephone nos. scribbled on it!

    4 parcels were delivered to France at half term. 2 Birthday and 2 Christmas.

    I am one of those who rush into the shops at the very last minute.
    Really have no interest this year.
    No kids or grandkids here.

    Christmas humbug. 🙂 I guess I’ll get around to it sooner or later.

      I think you must have wandered into the wrong blog. We love Christmas round here 🙂

        I do when it happens, but having it start 2 months early and all the commercialism and hype in the stores and on TV, really gets to me. It’s not what it was when I was a child. 😦

    I just got over Thanksgiving, I’m too tired for Christmas. I need another month. I say we postpone Christmas or we make time go much, much slower. I think the second one should do.

    A whole month: that’s 31 days: you’ll be fine.
    Made your cake yet?


    • Pseu November 25, 2012 at 14:40 #

      (gloat, gloat)


      • Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife November 26, 2012 at 12:58 #

        Gloat all you like – I am impressed, yes; but I don’t like fruit cake, none of us do 🙂

        The Hub and I were the only people not to have any of our wedding cake. My mother refused to let me have a sponge tier. 😦

    I am giving silk scarves and neck ties this Christmas. Just wish I had bought more in India.

    Just went out yesterday to look for a tree with no luck. If I hadn’t been so tired on Thursday I could have stopped at any number of tree sellers in my daughter’s town.


  12. Grannymar November 25, 2012 at 19:53 #

    One month and all the flapping will be over for another year! Woo Hoo! Then we can get back to normal.


  13. slpmartin November 25, 2012 at 20:21 #

    Are you suggesting that there are people who actually go shopping before Christmas Eve?


  14. robincoyle November 25, 2012 at 21:29 #

    Holy s**t! One month from today?!? Now you tell me.


  15. restlessjo November 25, 2012 at 21:34 #

    That’s because you’ve been busy being a good fairy. There’s time…don’t fret.


  16. Elaine - I used to be indecisive November 25, 2012 at 21:45 #

    I refuse to let panic set in. I will continue to breathe deeply and search my brain for ideas for gifts. 🙂


  17. Musings November 25, 2012 at 23:06 #

    Oh gosh! I’m already behind on everything. I used to have our tree up by now and starting my shopping. Siiiighhh!


  18. benzeknees November 25, 2012 at 23:58 #

    Don’t worry about shopping – you have a month – a MONTH to shop! Have fun!

    I have never been in such denial about Christmas being a month from now. It always sneaks up on me, but this year I’m completely off. I actually think my blogging is getting in the way. Maybe in 2013 I’ll need to enter a program for blogging addiction. In the meantime, I am glad you can make me laugh…I need that! 🙂

    What, no green elf???


  21. Mayfair Mum November 28, 2012 at 12:47 #

    I am this photo! Presents arriving from online so thick and fast I’m sure I must have ordered at least twice for everyone I know and I haven’t even thought about cards yet … panicking? Totally! Nice to meet you – referred by Kate Shrewsday 🙂

    Trust you to offer up the funny version. 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
