Subject:CHRISTMAS GREETINGS!!ji
Time:12:10 am
Current Mood:cheerfulcheerful
I swear by the time I finally got to my pc tonight - something like 10.30 - I was suffering withdrawal symptoms!! The Christmas panic has finally caught up with me and the day has gone by in a flurry of shopping, wrapping, cleaning. I think it's all done now. Except - we forgot the sherry. Hubby is under strict instructions to get some tomorrow - it is tradition that I can only produce the Christmas dinner while in a sherry-induced haze.

In years gone by, it was the children who became over-excited at this time. Now, it's the cats!! I kid you not. Mabel today disovered where I was hiding their Christmas presents - she caught a whiff of the catnip & I was alerted by the frenzied rustling of bags that followed!!

Very soon it will be time for Frodo to take his annual trip downstairs. This happens every Christmas since I had him (my Frodo standee, that is) - I will not allow him to be left out. And he will be draped in tinsel:)

Due to lack of time, I'm sadly unable to post a picspam as I'd hoped, & I've had to just skim through my flist without leaving replies. So, I'm afraid it's just a very simple card from me, but the message is no less heartfelt:)

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY LJ FRIENDS AND ANYONE ELSE WHO MAY PASS THIS WAY!! 192972043
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
in the deep midwinter so long ago ...

Oh my beautiful, cold Hobbits! Could not be a more lovely sight.

I lol'd about your kitty discovering the catnip as well as the need to produce Christmas dinner in a "sherry induced haze". : D

Hope you have a lovely Christmas day. I look forward to your picspam when things settle a bit.

*warm hugs*

The cats will enjoy that immensely! Try to get a picture.

Happy Holidays, and happy early birthday! I hope you have a lovely weekend.

LOL about the cats. My cat wanted to help wrap the Christmas presents and then today he tried climbing the tree. Merry Christmas to you!

Absolutely lovely!

I hope you have a wonderful sherry enhanced Christmas.

My cats are fascinated by the rustling of wrapping paper and ribbon flying around when I wrap packages. They know the sound and come running to help as soon as they hear it.

Thank you for the lovely Hobbits. I think I'll invite them inside for a hot toddy.

Many thanks for the lovely virtual Christmas/Birthday card you sent me - it was so sweet!! I also realised, far too late, that I hadn't got postal addresses for many of my LJ friends, including yours. I'm determined that next Christmas I will be more organised!! I have now had my first sherry, Frodo is installed downstairs & looking very fetching in his tinsel - and I'm finally beginning to relax and look forward to tomorrow:) Hope you have a wonderful Christmas - don't get those Hobbits too drunk:D

don't get those Hobbits too drunk.

Only drunk enough to dance on my table....LOL

It's Christmas morning now for you and I wish you a wonderful day full of both Christmas and birthday joy.

I'll email my address and you can do the same, then we'll be well prepared for next Christmas.

Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year too, love!

Don't worry about being too busy and not having time for replying, I know that, this time of the year is usually a total chaos.

Eh, kitties! I adore them because you never know what they're about to do, the rascals!

*lots of loving hugs for you and family!*

Just to let you know I haven't forgotten your request - I'm on my laptop right now but next time I'm on the desktop where that pic is stored I'll send you a copy. It's from one of the LOTR fan club mags and was an actual Christmas card, one of a set of 4 advertised for sale:)

Here it is - sorry the quality's not too good - as mentioned in my previous comment, it was in a mag so I had to scan it - and sadly my scans are never great:( http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v327/ShirelingUK/scan1a.jpg

Have a lovely Christmas and don't panic too much. The molehill has finally calmed down and what is not in the fridge, is not in the fridge...tough!!!The next two days will be manic but after that things should calm down again.

I hope your Christmas was wonderful, dear - as well as it being *your* special day. [I truly hope you got separate pressies] ;D

And it looks like we have similar thoughts in the virtual card department...
