Oh Christmas tree…

Lunch with Zoe today was, as usual, very tasty. And as usual, the company was great. We went to Macchiato again. Unfortunately, Kimberley couldn’t make it.

After lunch I met with the self-paced learning coordinator about my Cert IV TAA upgrade. It looks like it’s all going to be much easier than I thought. Not too much to get done at all. If I’m able to take part in the volunteer training that I’m interested in, that will make things even easier.

I caught up with a few friends at my old workplace while I was there, it was good to see them, but didn’t make me wish to be back there at all. Things haven’t changed at all.

This afternoon we decorated the Christmas tree, put out a few Christmas ornaments and hung a few lights. A bit late I know, but we were a bit hesitant because of Anzac. We didn’t put too many decorations on the tree, we don’t want to push our luck with the pup. We’ve had the wreath on the front door for a week or so. Anzac did take an interest in the balls on the tree (ball-crazy dog that he is) but he was soon distracted by his favourite rubber ball. He was more alarmed by the small pair of antlers that I hung on the corner of the telly.

I forgot to mention that last week, on the Monday, I called up to renew my subscription to Organic Gardening magazine. As a gift for resubscribing they sent me a nice monthly planting guide calendar. It arrived on the Wednesday! Two days! I have no idea how they did that. And at Christmas time! If only the mail was always so efficient. I guess it must have been delivered by courier, not Australia Post. It was left on the doormat while I was out.
