So here I am, sitting in a peacefully quiet house while the wind whips around outside. Sunlight is filtering through our lounge windows behind me. I am eating a childhood favourite for lunch: pasta with tomato sauce and cheese. Life feels good, despite the continuing occassional cough.
I am feeling pretty chuffed at having found some small soft toys for my Christmas Child shoebox stash in the past few weeks. They cost $3 or less, and are small enough for shoeboxes. I found them in three different dollar/discount style stores. Plus I got a little polarfleece blanket to go in one box in place of something to wear. Now I only need seven things to wear and the box contents will be complete!
