This morning's definition of 'Panic'...

>> Thursday, 24 December 2009 realising you've forgotten your brother's Christmas present and that the town where you're staying is not likely to offer anything particularly exciting in the '£10 and under' price range your family has agreed to stick to for presents this year.

This morning's definition of 'Gratitude'... how you feel when your Husband returns from his foraging mission with 3 dvd's for under £10 all of which you know your retro-bro will love.

This afternoon's definition of 'Panic'...

is realising you've run out of wrapping paper, that the the nearest shop that sells it has just closed, and that you still have your sons' two 'big' Christmas presents to wrap.

This afternoon's definition of 'Gratitude'...

is confessing as much to your mother and finding out that she has plenty left over and is willing to share.

Happy Christmas all!

Merry Christmas to the potty Family from TheMadHouse, I look forward to reading more in the New year specifically about your trip to Russia

You wouldn't have that problem here - all the shops are proudly boasting that they are open til 10pm on Christmas Eve....

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! x

I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas day right now! We have finished our very late lunch, are totally stuffed and I'm about to start the phone calls 'home' to my family.

Merry Christmas, PM. I hope it is all very lovely and that you are not too stressed about the upcoming move to Russia that's about to happen any day now, isn't it?

Hope you had a good day. I ran out of the cheaper stuff for the little guy's presents and ended up having to wrap them in really beautiful, thick gold paper which he didn't appreciate at all. I think I should have left the stuff in the plastic bags and tied ribbon around them!

It is always good when family comes to the rescue! Glad it all worked out. We've had those days too!
