The Christmas preparations has started. Yesterday I organized my Christmas holiday with my boss. I had asked for some days off. It didn’t go acording to my plan, but I’m not complaining. I still win. I’m not working from the 24th until the 4nd of January. Holy mother of God. That’s a loooong vacation.I wonder what I’ll do all those days I’m off.
I got three vacation-days left which I will spend between the 24th and New Years Eve. That means I have four hours on Christmas Eve and four hours on New Years Eve I have to work in. I’ve started on that this week. Yesterday I worked half an hour overtime and today I worked one hour. I’ll be working an hour extra tomorrow and on thursday too I think.
Today, after I came home and had made dinner I sat down and watched one of my favourite Christmas moves; Home Alone. It’s such a sweet and fun movie. I never grow tired of that one and watch it every December.
It reminds me of movie I saw last December. A Christmas movie that too. It was the Polarexpress. That is such a great Christmas movie and I would love to have that on DVD. I should put it on my wishlist!
On thursday I’m going to the movies with my friend Linda and her brother. We’re gonna see A Christmas Carol (with Jim Carrey). I’m looking forward to that one. I wanted to see that only by looking at the movie-poster! That has to mean something. We’ll be meeting outside the cinema at 18.30. The movie starts at 19.00. that means there is time to get the tickets and buy some chocolate. Nom, nom, nom.
Sometimes things pop into your mind at the strangest time. Early today, when I was brushing my teeth, I suddenly realised that there one friend I haven’t started to think about what to give for Christmas. I’m a bit ashamed to say it, but I had forgotten about it! Yikes. Well… no harm done. I’ve done some thinking today and I have some ideas of what to buy. But to be on the safe side, I emailed her and asked for a wishlist. I know what the perfect gift would be, but it’s too late for that now. I would’ve needed a bit more time to make it / order it.
I have two uncles. At least one of them are getting a calendar for Christmas. With my pictures in it. I might make one for my other uncle too, but I’m not sure if I have the right pictures for it. I’m going home on saturday, so maybe I’ll get the chance to take some pictures at home on sunday.
On sunday, if the weather is good and everything goes as planned, I’ll be going to our own forrest, with my parents, to look for this years Christmas tree. That will be fun! The last years we’ve bought the tree, but this year we’re gonna try find one. It’s going to be hard, cos it’s not that many good trees around. Hopefully we’ll find a good one. And if not, we can always buy one.
