Christmas week 2014

A happy Christmas it was. I almost starved; was invigilating and had to wait til 9 PM to eat for only the second time that day. Being single and living alone I mostly rely on cafes or restaurants for nourishment. But there's a job, food is available and I am thankful.

I'm celebrating the highlights of my Christmas week -

Government Complex

Three-in-one: i.e. visa, work permit, and 90-day report - all done. It's quite a relief to have immigration and legal matters out of the way; makes the fun of celebrating the holidays compleat.

Apex Lido

Films galoreMagic in the Moonlight, Saint Laurent, Serena, Exodus: Gods and Kings, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and Night at the Museum 3. I love finding what memorable lines each film has.

They're getting rare, aren't they?

A real Christmas card. I can't believe someone would send me one. A delightful surprise.

Tasty tree

Macaroon Christmas tree a sweet, calming sight out of the holiday shopping rush.

Penny - at home on her throne

Christmas pooch. A friend in Canada adds this to her personal greeting, "my little one wishes you a merry Christmas too."  As a dog lover, this is much appreciated.

  11. I still love anything handwritten and sent in the mail. I love Christmas cards. One year my friend Tracy felt that she did not get many. A good friend of her's made her a beautiful Christmas card collage. I am thinking of doing that. If you send me your address privately I will send you a card soon and surprise you! I love sending snail mail! Happy New Year and come visit soon. Also Penny looks so lovely too! HeeHee! You should visit my friend Edna and her little dog Pogo. He got a new sofa bed for Christmas. Her blog is Miss Edna's Place. Happy to be here. Hugs, Anne

  12. Hi Hazel,

    What a darling dog! Sorry that it took me so long to comment, but I’m home from the hospital now and using a new laptop.

    Thanks for your good wishes.
