One lump (of coal) or two?

Yes I’m afraid so, the countdown is really on and there are only 14 or so sleeps to go. Unless you are an insomniac in which case there are only six or seven to go.

Decorative tin with a lump of coal in itThis weekend will be split between cricket (yawn, please rain some more), a hurried garden spruce up (pull the weeds out, break them off or just cover them up), and possibly a spot of Christmas shopping.

I say possibly because currently the children are on a Christmas suicide mission  and can’t seem to understand “poor behavioural outcomes” equals NO PRESENTS FOR YOU! (Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi’s got nothin’ on me).

You can actually buy a lump of coal.  That tin is way too pretty though. That tin would lead you to believe it might contain something edible. It promises to contain real coal. If you can’t get one at this late stage use a substitute and put it in a pillowcase tied with string. I am sure our dogs have left a few lumps out for us. Steaming lumps are to be avoided. Not edible and that’s a promise boys and girls.

At least it is the weekend. Happy weekend!


About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
