Still to Do List.

The tree got left till last. We went looking to source one on the property which we often do, but none reached the required standard, so this little tree was bought for $20 just down the road. It has to stand in a small space because where we usually have a tree is this year stacked with packing cases belonging to our young sweeties recently returned from London. So decorating it tomorrow.
    I did however finish this mug rug to go with the lovely bone china mug. It is a birthday present for my cousin ( also on the 25th. )
The grower rep from our kiwifruit pack house called in with a calendar for us and trays of unsold kiwifruit, both gold and green. Zespri didn't manage to sell it all this year and it is better to give it back to growers than throw it out.I was happy to accept as we don't have any left that we kept at home.
We also popped down the road to the nearest eating place for lunch. It is  easy to be too busy to remember and do anything about the fact that today was our 44th Wedding Anniversary.( being on the 23rd of December it is a busy time every year; and that will never change ).
Tomorrow 's To Do list Just got suddenly longer with a sudden change of plan. I hope I cope.
