The Gallery – What I’m Doing Now

The theme in the Gallery this week is an interesting one: What I’m Doing Right Now

Literally take a photo of whatever you’re doing when you read this prompt.
I know, I know there will be some people reading this all wide-eyed and yelling BUT I DON’T POST PHOTOS OF MYSELF. What are you doing to me Tara? What, what?

Well, it doesn’t have to be your face. If you’re watching the TV, take a picture of your outstretched legs or your hand clutching a cuppa/beer/cocktail.
Get creative – I think it’s going to be really interesting to see what everyone is up to when they’re browsing the internet!

I was staring at the chocolate Santa at the time. I bought him during the Christmas sales and at £2 just had to have it. (What? It was Thorntons!).. Anyway, it occurred to me… I could do that clever thing where I take a before pic of him whole. And then an after pic of a headless Santa. (Like you do).

Sooo… Before was fine:


And then the after shot went slightly wrong


Oops. Umm…

So thats what I doing when I was reading Tara’s prompt. *Chuckles manically*

The Ultimate Christmas Meme

Seeing as I feel like I am hungover from yesterdays party I thought this would be the ideal gentle meme to do. Requires not too much stress, no preparing anything and definitely no making rice (which actually turned out quite good!!).

I have been tagged by the lovely Jess from Mum2BabyInsomniac to join in with this Christmas themed Meme created by Carolin from Mummy Alarm.

1. The Christmas song I can even listen to in June is…

All I want for Christmas is You. By Mariah Carey!

2. Hot chocolate, egg nog or mulled wine?
Hot chocolate! Egg nog is a bit bleurgh!

3. When do you put your decorations up?
Usually the first week of Xmas but this year it’s been birthday decorations first and they really are all over the place!

4. What are you having for Christmas dinner?
Christmas dinner with all the trimmings but with chicken. I don’t really like Turkey very much. Oh and we are having birthday cake too for party number 2!

5. What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?
Giving presents to the kiddies. The look on their faces is the best. Shortly followed by Christmas dinner of course!

6. Have you ever gone carole singing?
Umm, nope! I’ve been in the Christmas choir a lot as a child though. Does that count? No? Ok, no then.

7. When did you discover the truth about Santa?
I think I was about 8 and I’m not sure how I knew but my brother and I left out secret sacks (shopping bags!!)for Santa to fill because we were being greedy. We knew something was amiss when they were still empty the next day. Discovery of the tooth fairy is a very similar story!

8. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?
We don’t really have a Xmas tree… Is that bad? I do like to chuck tinsel on it when I do have one though!!

10. All I want for Christmas is…..
A holidaaaaayyyyyyy!!!!! To New York. Is that too much to ask?? We can leave baby at Naanis house and he can have his own little holiday. So, can I?

Now I tag –
