Christmas - Missing Day 4 & Day 5

For anyone that has or has had little children, you will probably agree with me that it is amazing how your day can be over before you know it. But for the life of you, you can't really name everything that has consumed your day. Well caring for an elderly parent is exactly the same. Even though Dad sleeps most of the day, my day was gone before I knew it. It was a day of washing bodies, clothes, bedding etc. etc etc. I did spoil myself and go to a scrapbooking night after Dad was tucked up into bed for the night. It was nice to just indulge in some me time for a couple of hours. I fully had intentions to update my blog when I got home, but I couldn't keep my eyes open. Today is day 5 of my Christmas preparations, so out came the Christmas tree, but I will get it decorated tomorrow. My daughter - Rachel - and her boyfriend - Luke - are of to a 60's Birthday Party tonight and I got the job of doing her makeup and creating the beehive hairdo. They looked so good as they headed of for a night of laughs. Rachel reminded me of the girls out of the group B52's and Luke was Ringo Starr of Beatles fame. I have always loved going to fancy dress nights - you can be as outrageous as you like and hide behind your costume.


  1. Wow, your daughter is beautiful Davine! Even with the beehive! :-) That sure sounds like a ton of fun to get all dressed up and go out to a party like they attended!

    The tree will get put up, you will get everything tended to and hats off to you for taking some time to do what you really enjoy doing!

    Take care and have fun with your tree! I'm excited to see what you do with your tree. I did put my tree up and the decorations should be here tomorrow, they'll have to wait until Sunday though. Tomorrow, or later today I might say, I have my family gift exchange and they are so much fun! I'd best get to bed so that I'm not too tired for this!

  2. Thanks Darlene, I am a bit bias - I too think she is beautiful. Yes, the tree will get done and I will enjoy doing it.

  3. Your daughter & boyfriend look amazing . . .really the part!
    Hope you manage to get some time to decorate your tree.

    Take Care!

  4. Gosh, their costumes and her hair and makeup came out GREAT!!! What fun! I have heard of fancy dress parties but never got to see anyone ready for one before!!! Too cool!

    Yes, caring for the elderly or infirm very much eats up the day...lots of it is just waiting, too...but the time gets eaten up just the same...

  5. Although I eat up anything people say about their adult children (I have two of them), the interesting bit here for me was about your father.

    He lives with you. Or do you live with him.


I would love to hear your comments.
