Well the tree is up and even if it was dressed by my four year-old and all the decorations are no higher than her, it looks amazing. I have miraculously completed all of my Christmas shopping, all that is left is to wrap the presents and sign the cards.
We are going away for about a month to Brisbane to house and cat-sit for a friend who is spending Christmas in London and Europe. I am treating this like a holiday because where we are staying is just delightful. Coffee and movies and slowly browsing the many bookstores will be a favourite pastime.
I decided that I would do my utmost to put together a post of the most amazing shoes that I have been able to find over the past few months. This is my Christmas present to my gorgeous readers, thank you for all your comments and for just popping in to read this year, you have been wonderful and my saving grace.
