Christmas is fast approaching and the calendar is filling up with invitations, tree lighting, Christmas parades, celebrations, parties and gift giving. Life has become slightly hectic. My past two days have been spent, decorating and preparing for **our annual art exhibition** in January. The house needs some Christmas decorating.
