I know! It’s starting to creep all around me!

From checking out Aldi’s Chrissy Range in the catelogue, with my niece exclaiming “MINE!!!!” every few items….

Blue christmas lights from aldiball lights
Ez wands the “du!” (blue) and the “gall” (ball) lights.

To being dragged out to the shed and being nagged to get the Xmas tree up!

To emails about elves on shelves, and participating in online gift exchanges, to thinking about buying cards, and having PR pitches about shopping for Xmas.

To just liking Xmas and wanting to get the pretties out myself!!!

64 days to go :p

Yay! FSMas/Xmas/Christmas wishlist time!!!!

Below I’m listing a bunch of things that I’d actually like for Xmas. Yes, you aren’t on there. That’s okay though?


Animatronic, or not, I need more Nekomimi in my life. Purple, or two toned would be cool.

Hello Kitty Things

Yeah, anything Hello Kitty will do :) It will maketh me smile.

Amazon Gift Card / Kindle Books

So, I have a Kindle, but am yet to buy any books for it. Care to help a girl out with a Gift Card or something from my wishlist?

Subscription to Women’s Fitness Mag

I’m needing all the motivation I can get right now to eat healthy and keep moving. And flicking through these glossy magazines has always helped me remember to stay on track! I know there are better deals than you can get online including a two subscriptions for the price of one in the current issue! (might have to get that for me and my sister?)

ANYTHING from Smiggle

Seriously, people, anything. Preferably in Purple or pink. Have you seen their bon bon kits? I WANT THE ADVENT CALENDAR. *breathe*

Notebooks from Typo


I go through a lot of notebooks from Typo. Scribbling away at my thoughts. Ideas. Moods. Insanity. Everything. They’re cheap and cheerful, and one can never have too many! A5 is always better.

A necklace a month from ShanaLogic.com

I would love to resubscribe to the Shana Logic necklace a month club where, each month, a new cute necklace arrives. Or a gift certificate because, since I cancelled my credit card, I’ve missed getting my shanalogic packages :(

Gift Vouchers (or Cash)

So I can buy clothes! And shoes! Generic ones that can be used anywhere are always best :p


I’m sure that’s not ALL I want for Xmas, but it’s a start!

How is your wishlist coming?

Got a free sample of the Custom Xmas Cards from moo.com come in the post today. But of course, I chose the nerdiest front, and turned them into fsmas cards. MWahahaaaaaaaaaa.

(back of my design)

I went for the Venn that tune designs. Love them. Great design, solid cardboard.

If you want to receive one with a love note from yours truly, be one of the first 15 to comment here. Don’t leave an address, I’ll reply via email for that.

Yes I’ll post anywhere!

I have a million photos from Beechworth and had an excellent time on the weekend – it’s great to get away just the two of us before xmas madness begins. My body wasn’t too happy by Sunday night with the nibbles of cakes, tastings of wine, snippets of cheese and the like that I subjected it to for the benefits of my tastebuds!

Beechworth Bakery

(Let alone the extra I just eat at this time of year! It’s okay though, and there are heaps of free weight loss sites, challenges etc, where I can lose weight in the future because of time zones :p Does anyone pay for these sorts of sites anymore??)

Milawa Cheeses

One more day of work! Psyching myself into heading there now. Lots of stats to complete before the deadline, and all these new referrals to put on the wait list. I think everyone just realised that it’s the end of the year, and they have a pile and list of to-dos, like making referrals, to get done before they too go on leave!

Cat at Gundagai Maccas

The quietness though of the office is good and bad – do you find this too that there’s an ‘optimal’ amount of stuff going on around you to get a good amount of work done?

Anyway, off to tackle the to-do list. Then Time Off! Yay!

(blogging about the weekend proper will come. In time!)
