dining room-loved the decorations
i think dandelion's house is perfect for parties. the dining rooms is big enough to accommodate everyone sitting. it's starting to feel like christmas (: i think there's less hype this year compared to the high school/primary years.
so blessed to have such amazing friends (: i would love this to be an annual event, but the effort/money/organising will probs be too much...so much unhealthy but good food, and lovely company (:
i loved all the wrapping. from Better's funny typo cards, to Nancy's super cute Disney wrapping to Dandelion's silver wrapping and ribbon! i collect wrapping and ribbons (: it's fun collecting ribbons from various packaging rather than trying to find nice ribbons. i really love how Dandelion 's wrapping is so unique and also her cards (: i read your card, so i kinda found out what is inside, but i open prezzies on boxing day, so just have to wait a few more days until i can see what it looks like. also, i want to open Better's prezzie since i know an item i want is useful in there, but that has to wait as well....got my first and probably last candy cane of the year. don't buy candy canes anymore...
i guess going to the carols in the domain can wait another year. if you want a good seat, you need to camp there from 10am. even for fireworks you can start camping at 2pm to get a good seat, but that's cause there are heaps of vantage points for fireworks.
also got to choose a prezzie from work, just simple shortbreads/chocolates. i think i chose the cheapest one-gummy lollies from kmart, but i just wanted the tin...
noo, i think my time table is going to be manually changed by the school, and yes, i did enrol illegally, but if try to make a legitimate enrolment, i obviously end up with the bad times. i tried to wait to see if people would move their classes around, turns out that even the ok (not good/bad) times are also full.
i finally feel like i'm on holidays after working 6 days for 3 weeks. even between exams ended and i started helping out at my dad's place, i was still so busy with stuff/going out. i don't remember a day where i just sat at home reading/watching movies/baking. hardly have time to make stuff, and my list of books to read hasn't been touched.
