Just checked the long range forecast and wish I hadn't done so!!!! Christmas day (they say) will be 38C (100.4F) and here was me hoping for a cool day. The temperatures have been going up and down in Perth of late and I had my fingers crossed they would go down next week but, because my hands aren't very supple these days, perhaps I didn't cross the poor old fingers hard enough.
I am fortunate in many ways though. The family now consider me old so they don't burden me with having to do too much but perhaps provide plates, napkins etc. which I am always pleased to do and I will make any salads or similar that they need. I wonder if they'll need Christmas crackers? Must ask them about that.
There are still a few gifts to be brought and cards to send....boy am I running late this year but I am still trying to boost my Christmas spirit and finding it hard to do so. I have no idea why this is. My age perhaps? The difficulty of moving easily and getting things done? Does anyone have an answer?
Never mind though....I truly am looking forward to spending Christmas Day with my dear MOH and our lovely family regardless of what the weatherman throws at us.....although I WOULD prefer rain.
