Horrible holiday!

Sinterklaas shopping, how I hate you! I spent hours in overcrowded shops, trying to find the whole family presents that don't suck too badly. My back, my feet, my shoulders ache with fatigue, and to add insult to injury, the one present I was fairly happy with, a porcelain bowl decorated with cute little bunny rabbits that I intended to give to my Mum, I found had broken by the time I got home. Now what am I going to do?

It's not all doom and gloom though, because yesterday the post brought me one of caegey's beautiful photographs, which she'd put up as a prize in a quiz on her LJ recently. It's 'Leaf, Shell, Water', or still life no. 6 on her website; and it's magnificent! I've already got a space on the wall in mind, where it'll look fantastic after I've framed it.

Honey, you just had surgery! Please don't overdo. I know, Christmas shopping is the pits. I'm not even starting yet.

Isn't Caegy something? I wish I could take pictures half as well.

Why do we do it, eh? Why? And every year it gets worse.

caegey's pictures are great! She's got such a good eye for spotting the sublime in the mundane.

At least THIS year, I have an excuse not to do any. "Moving and everything was just TOO stressful! We'll make it up next year. Here's a gift voucher." :) :)
