Only 64 days until Christmas!

Well, surprise, surprise. I'm no more organised for Christmas this year as I was this time last year or the year before that etc. This year, I don't really care. What does it mean to be organised for Christmas anyway? Spending time with your family? Yes, I can do that. I don't have to be 'organised' to do that. I'll be doing that anyway. There won't be any fancy Christmas dinners. Just quiet, fun times spent with the kids. I'll probably have a family get-together before the actual day. Given the year I've had, I'm happy and looking forward to another festive season all the same.

For your interest, I've put all of my Christmas ideas from 2011 under their own "Christmas" tab above. If I get around to anything between now and the big day, I'll add them. In the meantime, here's a few fantastic ideas I've been pinning from Pinterest that I hope I get around to.
