I’m still in shock Christmas 2009 came, and went. Whoa.  What happened to the year? and more importantly the Christmas season? It just crept up and BOOM! just like that, in a flash, it was gone.
My Christmas was fairly quiet.  As I’m from South Africa my extended family doesn’t dwell anywhere near snow, hence? It was just the 5 of us for turkey, stuffing, potatoes and pie! 
Highlights include food, Yves Saint Laurent vintage 1960s gold heels, cupcake apron, napping, cupcake ornament, lots of books, slippers, cash, Christmas walk, napping, reading, finding my NYE dress, more food, ice-cream, more pie, and my weight currently sitting EVEN!!! Hell. Yes.
And now? Back to reading my new book (Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs) as I wait for Christmas Dinner #2 tonight!
~ Merry Christmas-Boxing-Day!! ~

Twas the night before ChristmasAnd all through the house…nary a soundNot even a mouse!I spent 2 hours or moregetting home,Not thinking of food,Until I started this poem.I was doing just fineTill the cookies came outThe aroma hit my noseAnd my stomach grumbled a shoutMy hand started to slideTowards the cookies!, Oh My!!”Belly, HOLD ON!”As it let out a sighI thought of New Years, and boys, Dresses, and heels And pulled up some strength, As I remembered the soon-to-be boxing day deals
I put down the cookie, With all the strength I could musterLooked down at my bellyAnd said, “I WON BUSTER!”. Dear Blog,    Hush up, I consider writng a poem on Christmas eve, time well spent, oh and Merry Christmas!! 
Love E
Ps. I totally ate a cookie, the poem was a lie… soo umm urrr… well… EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY, FOR TOMORROW* WE DIET.

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
…nary a sound
Not even a mouse!

I spent 2 hours or more
getting home,
Not thinking of food,
Until I started this poem.

I was doing just fine
Till the cookies came out
The aroma hit my nose
And my stomach grumbled a shout

My hand started to slide
Towards the cookies!, Oh My!!
”Belly, HOLD ON!”
As it let out a sigh

I thought of New Years, and boys,
Dresses, and heels
And pulled up some strength,
As I remembered the soon-to-be boxing day deals

I put down the cookie,
With all the strength I could muster
Looked down at my belly
And said, “I WON BUSTER!”.

Dear Blog,

   Hush up, I consider writng a poem on Christmas eve, time well spent, oh and Merry Christmas!!

Love E

Ps. I totally ate a cookie, the poem was a lie… soo umm urrr… well… EAT, DRINK AND BE MERRY, FOR TOMORROW* WE DIET.

It definitely took me longer this year to find my usual festive Christmas spirit, I blame this on the fact I was eating my weight in food and was too cheap to buy a Christmas tree (omigosh WHY are they sooo expensive?!), BUT I did buy beautiful Christmas flowers instead…

Red is so the new Pink*

* Only for December, duh.

~ Merry Christmas Eve!! ~

Although I’m at work right now (on Christmas Eve! Gasp), I’m in quite the festive mood.  Umm hello red headband and red scarf, why yes I do LOVE you both.  Also, the red plaid shirt? That will be my Christmas day attire, yup I plan ahead when it comes to all things festive and awesome. 

Not pictured my 'Coment Loves Cupid' red nail polish, or the copious amounts of presents and bags I had to drag to work with me this morning. The commute was rough, and it was only part I of II.

Also, OMIGOD YOU CAN TRACK SANTA!!!

My Backyard at The Parent’s house, looking out from my high school bedroom, where light pink rules the walls, and diaries with teenage thoughts lie under my bed.

As I work Christmas Eve (I know, I seriously deserve an award for this), I’ll only be heading home tomorrow at 5pm (again, I deserve an award) for chicken, and turkey, and gravy oh my, plus family, and sleeping, and television, and gifts given and received and church and all things bright and beautiful.

I think my goal will be to eat, when given food. As in, NOT venture into the kitchen and open the glorious cupboards and fridge, or pick at the chocolate balls on the tree.  I will only eat at meals. NO SNACKING. Must think of beautiful (yet to buy, but obvy it will be beautiful) New Years Dress that needs to look booottttiiifulll on me, and not full of chicken, and turkey, and gravy oh.

~ Merry Christmas Eve’s Eve! ~
