Got an early Christmas present from my oldest friend who knows me very well.
A smiling skull scrub brush.
Of course, it's so much fun I don't want to actually use it to clean up dirty plates.
I've been brainstorming various other cleaning tasks where I could use it but it would last longer (bathroom sink cleaner, pretty thing I look at and play with instead of actually cleaning, etc) but have yet to come up with a winning idea. His fate may be in dish-scrubbing in the end. Even if he wants to be a dentist instead.
We're in the final stretch of Christmas prep when everyone starts to go mad with stress over what they haven't gotten done, so I'm hoping all of you can find some time to just relax a bit and enjoy yourself before Christmas.
I don't know about you, but I tend to enjoy the days just before Christmas more than the actual day.
Today I'm taking my mother to go and see the live theatre production of Mary Poppins for her birthday. Perhaps I can bring back a little of that sing-a-song-and-everything-gets-done magic for us all. Wouldn't that be nice?
Or at the very least, a chalk drawing we can jump into to escape it all.
