A murder of crows
If you want something done, ask someone busy; they are the ones that somehow manage to get everything sorted while juggling about twelve different things all in one go.
Or do it yourself.
I feel like I am the busy one and frankly it's better to make myself more busy than to hope that anyone else can arrange any further things. Especially near Christmas. Some people actually have to be reminded that it's Christmas and 'have you got presents for so-and-so sorted?' to which the answer is that it hadn't crossed their mind. Quite incredible.
So it's been a more manic than usual few weeks recently but my hope it that it alleviates the last minute rush near Christmas. In the mean time, I've not got any posts ready for the week as my eyes stubbornly refused to stay open during the online shop last night; lids drooping in between additions to the basket. A victory in itself the order has been completed.

This picture is one from a few weeks ago when the rich blue skies sat as a stunning backdrop to the copper tones of the trees. A murder of crows swooped ominously over the treetops, caawing as they circled. Quite atmospheric.

  1. Yes, it amazing me every year than people don't think to get prepared early enough for Christmas. And its usually the same people who get cross when think are sold out! I feel your pain Sophie. Hope you manage to get a little time to yourself.

  2. Busy is best! I'm feeling snowed under but I know I will enjoy it when it comes around. I've almost finished my Christmas shopping, but Andy started this morning - this morning! But I suppose that's better than Christmas Eve.
    Hope things slow down a little soon, and in a few weeks it'll all be over and we can all get some much needed rest!

  3. My husband asked me what I might like for Christmas yesterday and I replied that I had told him (and emailed) the pair of Hetty and Dave fox pumps back in July. He had no memory of it and then told me crossly that I should stop buying novelty clothing.(I have bought him a budgie shirt from Palava that he approved of back in September when I showed it to him....)
    I then showed him a Lindybop dress which I liked last night which he also turned his nose up at. Humph!!! It'll be like last yesr when he ended up ordering next day delivery on December the 23rd like he did last year for me. I wouldn't mind but I've told him he doesn't have to get me anything but then he says he has to...
