Christmas at Park Place, 2010

Lights at Night

I am officially on holiday. For a month.
I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with myself.
I'm hoping to make a dent in the books-to-read pile which has been teeteringly tall for the better part of the year. I'm hoping to get sand between my toes and salt water in my hair - covered, as always, in 70+ sunscreen (yes, seriously).

Craig and I are headed to Pauanui which I hear is a beach, and then to Hawaii, which I know is a beach.
Who am I? This yen for sun and sea is completely unlike me.
But I'm not going to argue. It'll make Craig happy.

Before then however there is Christmas.

Tonight the family are massing at Park Place for desserts and Christmas movies.
There is chocolate mousse with crushed candy cane topping, chocolate-peppermint cupcakes, and oodles of fresh berries.
There is Elf, Love Actually, and While You Were Sleeping.

And a lot of wine.

Week Fifty-One

The Week in Photographs

Sunday: I love these creepy santas
In anticipation of the tree which never arrived I brought out the creepy santas which I adore.

Monday: Marking my lines
In a quiet moment at work I took the time to mark my lines for Much Ado About Nothing.
I play Don John - cast because of my natural malevolence.

Tuesday: Broken decoration at the office
Poor fowl. Broken christmas decorations in the office.

Wednesday: Sunset from Park Place
Beautiful striations in the sunset from Park Place.

Thursday: A tree! Finally!
A silver star atop our new (black) faux christmas tree.

Friday: BAD at being a grown up
Sometimes Craig and I are TERRIBLE at being grownups. Candy canes and canned food. Not a meal amongst it all.

Saturday: Decorating at Trinity
Decorating the family tree at Trinity. This is the stocking I've had for as long as I can remember - handmade by my grandmother.


Frazzled. Post-Work
