To do...

 The countdown to Christmas is on in our house. The Advent calendar went up on Wednesday. I've realised my two year old knows more about chocolate treats than I'd like him to. I'm also having a hard time leaving the chocolate where it is. Last night I ate today's advent treats... sorry boys.

As I tick off the days in December I'm also feeling a little smug, unusual for me in the lead up to Christmas. I usually first hit the shops on the 23rd and wrap at midnight on the 24th. But look at this....
All the Australian gifts bought, wrapped and in my husband's suitcase. I just hope he doesn't bring any of them back.

Of course there's still a bit on the to-do list and I'm making a new one every day.
A trip to the hairdresser is definitely overdue but I'm most excited about finally getting around to having my knives professionally sharpened. What is it about this time of year that makes us all try to finish everything we didn't quite get to all year?

Top of the list on Monday is to let you know who's won my little giveaway - there's still time to enter... Good luck.


  1. Knife sharpening - something I've always thought is a good idea. I might add that to my list (as if it needs anything else!)

    Your advent calendar looks gorgeous.

  2. You've inspired me, To Do list has made it out of the platic to actually fill it (I think I'm in denial, may fill entire page........!)
    LOVE that wrapping paper:)

  3. oh how i love to do lists...your advent calendar is very special and i love the fact that you got to the chocolate first!!!

  4. I'm glad to know that someone else eats the advent calendar chocolate too!

  5. Now, Ann. What is going on?! I mean, seriously. You are way too organised. I saw the top photo and thought "Oh, that can't be Ann's". And it was. Hmm, you're spurring me on to get organised. This weekend. Watch out, Mr PB. Oh, and is Mr VL posting or hand-delivering the presents? If the latter, we'd love to see him ☺. J x

  6. Wow, look at all those beautifully wrapped gifts -very impressive.
    Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. x

  7. those pressies all look so cute with their wee tags and all :) I managed to send all the Queensland pressie up north with nana when she visted in earlt Nov - what a feeling :) best le

  8. How often do you sharpen your knives? I sharpened my knife for the first time ever. That was about 6 months ago now and I'm itching to do it again. How often is too often?

  9. I'm loving your advent calendar! And your Christmas wrapping paper are so lovely! Enjoy the week ahead, Kellie xx

  10. That's the loveliest advent calendar! Any chance it's available online somewhere, I wonder?

  11. I love "to do" lists. Even seeing yours, gives me energy.



Thanks for taking the time to write, Ann x
