Swe-Aussie X-mas

Wow, can’t believe it – 10 months until Christmas Eve… and still Christmas in the house. But, I must add, I’m working really hard on removing all the decor… Look how empty our Christmas tree looks!10 månader tills julafton… och fortfarande jul här hemma. Men, jag måste tillägga att jag jobbar stenhårt på att ta bort allt julpynt… Kolla vad granen ser tom ut!

Christmas is still here… The attempt of removing Christmas at the end of last month totally failed! Well, it was only last weekend, but still…Most of the decorations are still hanging on the tree – a bunch of baubles are placed under the tree. The storage boxes are still outside… On the dining room table, there is a selection of decor which shouldn’t be there at all… I can tell you that the decor is still there when we have dinner haha. We kind of eat around it lolI will try again next week, maybe Christmas will be gone by Valentine’s Day…***Vilket skämt!Försöket att städa bort julen

Yesterday I started to take some Christmas decorations down from the tree, and today I continued a bit here and there throughout the house… I think this will be an ongoing task for this coming week! So much work ahead of me… ♥ Anyone else with all the Christmas decor still up?Igår började jag ta bort julen så smått, och idag fortsatte jag lite här och där runt om i huset. Tror att det kommer att vara den kommande veckans uppgift. Det är så mycket att plocka bort… ♥ Är det nån annan än jag som har julen kvar?

This year’s first Christmas bargain. Went in to the store Reject Shop and had a look around. I ended up in the candle aisle… Saw this red one with reindeer/cross stitch pattern and the price tag said $5. I thought to myself, maybe it’s half price after Christmas? Well… It was better than half price!I almost passed out at the checkout when the lady told me the total price of my purchase… 20c! And yes, I paid with my Visa card lol***Årets första julfynd så här i mitten av januari!Strosade runt på affären Reject Shop, typ Dollar Store ungefär,och hamnade bland l

A small selection of my Christmas cookbooksI love flipping through them, especially during the holidays!I find it so relaxing…I have to admit,I do it all year around…💕Oh, here’s the rest↓Tycker det är så mysigt att bläddra igenom alla julböcker,speciellt kring jul.Det är så inspirerande och avslappnande,och måste faktiskt medge…att jag gör det året om!

As we didn’t have a chance to catch-up before Christmas,I promised my Swedish bff, Petra, that I’d keep all decorations up and we’d have a Christmas get together after the New Year!♥ Christmas is truly the best time of the year ♥(even if it’s in January… lol)

My daughter said yesterday that we have to take all our Christmas decor down as it is no longer Christmas… Well, actually, she has said it a few times lately. What?? Has she gone insane? My seven year old princess wants me to remove all decor. I can’t believe it… No way, that’s happening in a hurry! Well, maybe before school starts the 23rd of January.. We’ll see!Är det verkligen dags att ta bort julen?Min sjuåriga dotter tycker det.Nja, inte riktigt ännu… Kanske till skolstarten den 23 januari,Vi får se!
