He's spent the last two days trying to catch me out. I've been merciless in my evasion. I actually heard him muttering something about depression as he walked down the hall.

I'm starting to feel really mean but he is making me twist the knife. It's not my fault. Really it's not.



:giggle :giggle

waiting for wifey to go to bed so I can wrap her presents from the kids ... meanwhile she's waiting for me to go to bed so she can wrap mine :? :? :?

He falls for it every year. Hence the determination to catch me out and my descent into mendacity.

I was raised Catholic. I well tooled when it comes to messing with kids' heads. I've ultimately silenced him before bed by telling him that he's making me feel guilty. Told him i'm so very sorry but he said he wanted computer games and i thought i was doing the right thing.

If he truly buys anything, the giggles coming from the lounge room will tip him off, probably. :bgrin

I snuck off to the bedroom. Beds are the best place to wrap pressies.

Both jellies set properly, the “marbled” blueberry, orange and blancmange one. The pineapple + layer of orange jelly was made day before yesterday and is set. The chilled soup is ready—need to buy some plastic bowls.

Tomorrow will be at the beach with my neighbors for a BBQ.

A friend of mine's eight-year old is setting up a time-lapse camera to catch Santa tonight. He's going to be one pissed off kid tomorrow.

A sign of our hitech culture—that still has beliefs.
