Busy bee or lazy snail?

I'd go for the lazy snail any time, any day after this hectic month! I'm not used to a fast pace with a calendar that is fully booked with things to do and places to be at. It was fun I admit to go visit Al and her family but shopping for 6 hours straight in a very big, very crowded shop is nothing I will be doing for quite some time thank you very much!

The weekend spent in Stockholm with colleagues from work I could have given a miss. Ok, the food was excellent and the show funny enough to give me a few laughs but the rest I could have missed out on without regrets.

But the weekend in Gothenburg with James and my mum was very fun and the show wonderful and funny. The hotel was very nice and just situated outside of Liseberg, big amusement park, so we ventured into the Christmas market already on Friday night. Saturday morning was spent looking for my mum who disappeared when going down for breakfast. We had to take turns to get into he elevators and how she got the notion of trying to find the breakfast room on her own even though I told her we would be getting downstairs to the lobby as soon as we could would she please wait there for us I'll never know. When we eventually got down she had vanished and me and James went looking for her if she had gone to the lobby to sit or already gone into breakfast. But oh no, she had asked the people in the lift if they knew where breakfast was being served and they had answered the 18th floor... So off she went even though we told her to wait for us downstairs. We finally caught up with her when she was on her way down and the elevator didn't stop at her floor for whatever reason and James had just gone to have another look around the lobby area. After that she stayed close by, mainly because I threatened her with being locked in her room for the rest of the day for scooting off like that! Mums!

The evening show and Christmas buffe was very nice and boy are we glad we came a bit early seeing the queues that lined up to the food later on but by then we were already into the desert table. The show was a combination of music in Christmas boogie woogie style from Robert Wells and some fantastic magic by Joe Labero.

In other news we have repainted the kitchen to a lovely soft yellow, we've just finished laying a new floor in the lounge and have decided on what new wallpaper we are going to have in there as well. And it all has to be done before Christmas whcih we are going to celebrate HERE this year!

Not too keen on long shopping trips on crowded malls, either, but the rest of the month sounds great! :)

Wow, you two are really working hard at the house transformations, aren't you? When you're done with yours, care to come and tackle mine? You'll definitely qualify as skilled decorators by the time you're done!
