Bounce, Bounce, Bounce

Had an unexpected trip to the shops this morning as one of the pressies for Binn's clan broke three seconds after opening :-(

It was really busy when we got there about 9-ish but much more settled when we left an hour and a half later. I picked up the replacement gift - but not the same as there were none left so I had to put the thinking cap back on for another idea - and also knocked over a few items that were on The Starchild's list. Had two widdies with me and they were rewarded with thick shakes and donuts that they didn't finish so I had to help out with - the donuts were fresh and soooo yummy!

The main present for the outlaws is now purchased - Flight Centre GV to add to Sister C and the Virgo Nurse's purchased of the same. What else do you get people in their seventies who deserve the best of everything but don't really need anything?

The Starchild is on his way to Sydney to visit the nine live cat with clipped wings (which I have waiting on hold for half an hour on an STD call to confirm is still on after recent cancellations) and will bring Sister C back up with him. The Virgo Nurse will be coming up after work as well. I really hope the traffic won't be heavy and that they all have a good run back home. The Starchild is planning on one more trip to the shops and will then be back home - and no work for him until the new year - whoo hoo x 2425157412452 and then some. I usually have to create human life for him to have time off work and then he usually goes back as soon as I am home from hospital. I am so looking forward to us all spending time together as a family, even if it is just for a short time.

Am starting to think about New Years Resolutions. I usually make them as I love any chance to set goals, although I don't usually like to wait to start them once I decide on them. Nothing revolutionary is coming to mind, although making a go of our own business is a bit of a step. I'm gonna need a lot of focus as self-direction is not really my strong point.

Am also thinking about a nap, then getting stuck into things. I'm much more active as the day wears on and will have more energy after a nap. The world at this time of year is such a mixture of extreme emotions and I am feeling a bit at a loss as to where I'm at. I am quite cruisey in general still and sort of excited but still a bit flat it seems. I'm sure as the house starts to fill up with people I will be a bit more bouncy.
