Christmas Wish

I wrote 25 cards last night and finished a whole box and posted them all this morning. I am so proud of myself, even though I was up into the wee hours for it.

yay

My mum arrived yesterday morning so I have been occupied with her and my new camera, the Kodak Z740. I had chosen the next model down but she used her discretion and brought this instead.

So today we were out getting a bag and memory card for it at Selfridges because I couldn't be bothered to go all the way to Tottenham Court Road. (Though in the end that wouldn't have been so bad considering how much we ended up walking.). We walked from Bond Street station down Oxford Street to Regent's Street, popping into shops every now and then. From there we made our way down to Chinatown where we ate dinner at Ikkyusan, then to Leicester Square where we had hot chocolate at Haagen-Dasz, then walked down Piccadilly to Green Park station.
And I forgot my pedometer.

So before I go to Italy on Monday, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas with family, friends, and whatever makes you feel warm and happy, inside and out.

In the languages of my heritage:

Kala Christouyenna
Gledileg Jol
Joyeux Noel


Love
~O~

Mers - hope you've had a pleasant holiday too. Did you go home?

Matt - It snowed in Wales, didn't it? Surprised to see snow in Dover today.

Jia Li - you Newfie, you. The same back to you! Only, I wish I had a bigger jib so I could drawl more!

Blue - thank you and I hope you did well on your exams!

Vanessa - I took more than 170 pictures, and they are all lovely. Didn't see Il Papa, but the guide pointed out the window of his apartment...!

Rebecca - Bellissima! Auguri e felice nuovo anno.

Rox - how was the skiing? We saw Chamonix. Thanks for the Swiss dialect, I love to see the variations - and this may be the only time I see Romanian on my site!

Anonanon - Indeed I am not..."Man" you must have been very observant :P


Second Anon...Is that you Vanessa? How come Jason sent that to you but not me? Huh? Huh?

Anonymous said...

Yes, that was me. I thought Chris it sent to me?!?!
