A Blither For All Seasons

Simply Having a Wonderful Holly Jolly Jingle Bell Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree
Feliz Navidad

It’s obvious, innit? Seeing as I’ve now completed my MA, I’ve got some time on my hands.  Mind you, I could be using this time to continue writing And She Was, but I’m right into wasting  time now, since I don’t have a deadline hanging over my head. Of course that deadline was all my own making. I put the pressure on myself to finish early. 

The trouble is I’m don’t feel anything, no sense of accomplishment, no thrill, or relief. So, now that I’m affect challenged champion of the MA world what do I do? Well, I take part in a list that I ripped from facebook.

Sixteen insightful tidbits about Oldbitey (like you really wanna know)

  1. A Southern Cross Christmas Smell

    Well Bites, I think the best Christmas smell for me is Apricots. Fresh Apricots. I got some yesterday in my veggie drop and IMMEDIATELY i though “Christmas”.
    Mum used to put a couple in each of our Christmas stockings when we were little, so that’s what I associate with Christmas morning.
    But other smells of Christmas are late nights in a hot house cooking fruit mince pies. Bundie Rum, which only comes out at this time to make the Rum balls. Pfeffernuise biscuits.
    As you can see, it’s mostly food smells.
