You are my sweetest downfall...

It's 16 days till Christmas Day. 16! Yowzer! (I can honestly say I have never used that word before. Where did that come from?)

Predictably, I have done next to no shopping yet. I just can't seem to find the motivation this year. Partly because I have been ill more times in the last month than in the last 5 years put together (hey tonsils, get a grip will you). But mainly because I don't want to go shopping. Every time I do, I just see things that he would have loved and I have to stop myself buying them. I'm a big fan of buying presents and I truly believe that it's better to give than receive (stop sniggering, filthbag). Buying him things I knew he'd love was one of the greatest joys in my life. So even shopping makes me miserable right now. I'm a rubbish girl.

In an attempt to spice up my life with some festive cheer here are some mince pie sized nuggets of joy from around the web....
  • This is far too cute to be allowed. How dare people be that happy.
  • Everyone loves a bit of yuletide Mariah. Mmm. All I want for Christmas is you.
  • My all time favourite Christmas film (well apart from Scrooged). "A sequel. That's it. We'll bring it out on March 25, and we'll call it... Christmas 2!"
  • Is there anything better than cats in christmas attire? I think not.
I shall leave you with a festive message from the one and only Beardyman... (I wouldn't watch it if you're a) religious at all or b) offended by naughty words)
