Thank Heaven For Little Girls ..... Sketch Saturday Challenge #183

Just 4 weeks to Christmas ... I'm really not organised, prepared or even looking forward to it :| , suppose I'll have to show willing though for the grandbabies :).  Rylee wants everything in the Argos catalogue, the typical 4 year old /:) and we have got Koree one of those "Bounce & Spin Zebra's"  ... its up in the bedroom staring at me everyday, tempting me to have a go on it ... I can hear it calling me ... I think my legs are too long though to get the full effect of it :D  

Mum has become addicted to Tipples  since Dad died ... suppose its better than the Diazapam the GP prescribed for a "just in case" ... she has a box and a half in a week ... :-/ I don't know what we're gonna do when Aldi sells out of them ... I do however, have a stash of 4 boxes here for her that she doesn't know about ;)!  Maybe I should use them to wean her off  8-| ...
