Day 9 - Yesterday was a fairly ordinary day until about 6.00pm when I went for a Christmas BBQ with Kath, Di and Lyn. I worked with these girls about 7 years ago. Isn't it weird how when we work with people they tend to become your friends by just working with them. It doesn't matter if you have nothing in common with them, you still socialize with them. It isn't until you no longer work with the girls that you realize which ones are real friends and which ones you really don't care if you ever see again. Kath, Lyn, Di and a couple of others who couldn't be there have become some very dear friends to me and I know that we were placed in the same work environment for a reason - to benefit each others lives. Notice how we all how our own variation of red Christmas shoes (mine were actually orange - but that is sort of red if you squint your eyes.
Day 10 - Today's Christmas decoration is the Advent Calender I made last year. I am very pleased how it turned out - how cute is Santa's face. I guess eventually when I have grandchildren the pockets will have lollies as well as numbers!!
