Christmas is less than two weeks away and I still have so much left to do. I still have a few parcels to pack and a few things to make and a lot of cookies to bake – and don’t get me started on Christmas cards.
However this morning my first Christmas parcel arrived all the way from Germany. A friend seems to have been more organised than I have and this morning the postman delivered a brown package to my doorstep. Now the parcel is the living room, lying in wait and taunting me.
But I will be good and not unwrap until the big day has arrived – no matter how much i wanted to know what is hidden beneath the wrapping. After all delayed gratification is the best and I don’t want to deny myself the joy of unwrapping a gift on Christmas day.
