Journal Your Christmas 2013

I have been receiving prompts for Journal Your Christmas from Shimelle since 2009. It is a fanatstic project to take back Christmas from the stress and commercialism which has become part and parcel (pardon the pun)of the season. It is such fun to get a little message in your inbox everyday of December and the forums are a great source of inspiration. Lots of people do beautiful scrap book pages but that defeats me at this time of year.

I am trying to focus of my not letting my perfectionism stop me doing things so I am simply aiming on doing a blog post each day and I am jumping in today on the 6th prompt.

I think Christmas Cozy is under a blanket, with the big light off and the tree lights on, watching a movie with a drink (preferabley fizz) with snacks to hand. It doesn't even have to be a Christmas film. It is just having the 2 hours to sit down and watch a film. I have spent today making bread sauce, cranberry sauce, apple sauce and red cabbage while watching Season 8 of Dexter. Having this leisurely time at this time of year is a secret pleasure. Getting these things done early allows Christmas to be Cozy and a little less stressful. I am really not stressed this year as I have done Christmas with Mum already and Dad etc are all being seen in February. Just friends and the Boy to shop for and that is all fun!
