these last few days have a merged into one prolonged nightmare - sleep was not welcomed until Friday night, since Tuesday; all that time inbetween was spent furiously hammering away at keyboards and frantically trying to deciepher loops and swoops on paper that had been written in a frenzy a few hours previous! cue collapse!
everythings done and dusted now tho, and im happily at home, REAL home - POLAND.
here, real snow has settled - not the paltry dusting of icing sugar that has occupied london and its people for the last few days (delays, copious congestion, CANCELLATIONS!!!), and its beautiful - tho i admit, im admiring from the warmer side of the window!
i love seeing all my family - despite this only happening once or twice a year, its like we live here three hundred and sixty five days a year! theres no awkwardness or shyness; we just blend seamlessly in. everyones has shot upwards, leaving me very much in their shadow and securing my position as the midget of the family, aside from Maijka but she is a bubba at two years old! there's still time for her to catch me up! my uncle, who is incredibly and slightly derranged has bought an 8metre tall christmas tree, and its branches stroke the ceilling - that man can never do things by halves! consequently, decorating the tree is a mammoth task and requires planning, precision and an entire day! the tree also dwarfs the multitude of presents that are scattered around it, prompting the adults to push more under the tree this year (no complaints from us children!).
i managed to complete my Xmas shopping in the nick of time; i know that R will love all his presents (tho one is a risk that i am entirely willing to take) and i cant wait for my mama to open hers - she'll never expect what we've got her!
I'M not quite sure what to expect this year - perhaps lots of makeup and my all time favourite perfume, "Princess" by Vera Wang which is MY scent.
but aside from that, mayb a whole lotta moolah?
