No time to blog! Life consists of lists and to-do's and lists and work and to-do's. And as I wrap gifts at work purchased by smart and savvy on-line shoppers, I marvel at their wisdom. The gifts I wrapped for myself at home circa one am last night don't look nearly as beautiful. Our family routine of spending Christmas at the beach is wonderful - once we all get there. But the pre-organisation has the stress levels at an all-time high. I've been sustaining my energy levels with the help of a beautiful little gift I received. These amazing macaroons! Now I know what the fuss is all about. They got me through the marathon pack up last night. I was on speed-dial as I packed the girls clothes. Got a bit lost when doing my own, and I did quietly congratulate myself when the Woolworths online grocery order arrived.One less bun-fight!
So I've literally just sent the family packing. Brunnel, the girls and Bruno the dog. Bruno is the only one who looked happy. The girls were both crying, and Brunnel looked somewhat resigned to the 5 hour drive ahead with a mad family. I get to focus on the store for the 3 more sleeps until Christmas. A flight on Christmas Eve gets me to the beach just before Santa & in time for a glass of bubbles.
I might need another macaroon or two as I contemplate cleaning this house before some friends arrive to stay in it. That's tonight's job! (After I've popped in to catch up with your blogs! Sorry I've been so slack.)
Meanwhile, on with the show... I have to get to the store!
P.S These delicious macaroons are available online at jaimelesmacarons.co.nz or here in Wellington at Moore Wilson's on a Friday only. Trust me - they are fantastical!Pin It
