Atchoo! Atchoo! Atchoo!

That’s what I was doing in the middle of the night, just like Santa when he gets stuck down one of the Weight Watchers chimneys. Speaking of weight, I have lost some. I say ‘some’ but it’s over a stone.

I’m quite proud of myself even though I didn’t set out to do it. It seems that there are other advantages to being a lollipop lady other than the gratitude. Of course, the disadvantage is that it is still snowy here. I wouldn’t mind so much but I have to trudge through it to get to work and that is surprisingly hard going after you’ve walked so far. It is, however, probably part of why I’m so much thinner.

Ka-ching!

Another disadvantage of the silly snow is that I have started with a cold as of last night; hence the atchoo-ing. The cold may cause this to last longer and also doesn’t really help when you are already tired and snotty.

Then there’s the roads. My parents have been finding it difficult to get to and from work whilst our small, rural town seems to be entirely void of grit. This makes my job harder because I have to guess if there’s hidden ice near where I need to stop the cars.

A bad skid could end a pedestrian life. Or my life. Cheery.

It also means that R has not been able to get through to see me very much to my great dismay. This means that he has not finished his project of building me a wardrobe (this is going very well, by the way. Do not let him tell you otherwise. I am proud of his newly found DIY skills) and that he has missed out on many dinners including mashed potato. I am considering wrapping him some mashed potato for Christmas.

And now it’s just over a fortnight until Christmas. I’m going to add a countdown clock to the blog so you can check back if you need to know how long you have left. What I want to know, though, is what your favourite Christmas film is. You can either comment below or write it on twitter under the hash tag #favexmasfilms

It would be nice to hear which ones I should be watching to grow my Christmas cheer.

  1. How to pick a favorite Christmas film? I can only list them, in no particular order.

    It's A Wonderful Life (Jimmy Stewart)
    White Christmas (Bing Crosby)
    Scrooged (Bill Murray)
    The Polar Express (Tom Hanks)
    Elf (Will Ferrell)
    A Christmas Carol (Albert Finney)
    Love Always (Hugh Grant)

  2. Ha ha. One of my favourites is Miracle On 34th Street – the Richard Attenbrough version. I think it gets to the heart of what Christmas is really about and it gives you a good feeling inside. =)
