I had a moment the other day when I walked into the local shops and saw that Christmas decorations were already up.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas – the food, the decorations, the sappy Christmas romance movies, the spending time with family and friends, even the present buying and wrapping. I make Christmas fruit cakes to give family and close friends (not the usual yuck dry thing but a delicious recipe that has even the most sceptical trying it and loving it and looking forward to it the next year). I’m that organised type that usually shops early in November so I’m not doing the manic last-minute panic buying, and I always decorate the house the first week of December.
But I’ve been so busy in the lead-up to the release of A Perfectly Paranormal Halloween, that I just didn’t equate the end of October with it being almost November which meant almost December and oh-my-god our renovations haven’t finished due to multiple lockdowns and I don’t have a kitchen yet and how am I going to make my cakes and will I even have a place to put the tree with half the house packed into the lounge room while the renovation is going on and how do I hang the decorations when the walls are still being painted and all the curtains and rods have been taken down and there’s still plaster-dust everywhere with more to come and how will I ever get everything done in time? Agggghhhh!
As you can see, a bit of panic set in.
Are you like this? Or is it just me?
Probably just me.
My only comfort is that the Christmas-romance movie-fest is about to start rolling out and when I’m feeling at my most panicky, I will settle down with a nice cup of tea and do a spot of binge watching at night of all the lovely, sappy, learning-just-the-right lessons at Christmas so as to get the boy/girl and have the merriest of merriest Christmases movies.
I love the Christmas romance movies so hard, I wrote an article about it for romance.com last year. It’s called Operation Christmas Movie – a kind of hit and miss list of my favourites and the ones you should definitely skip. A list I will definitely be adding to this year.
You can check out the article by clicking on the link below if you, like me, are a Christmas romance movie fanatic.
So, with a little help from some lovely made-for-TV stories, I will be jingling all the way to Christmas despite my questions about just what kind of Christmas it will be for our family this year. I hope this list gives you a little jingle in your step too.
But that’s not the only pre-Christmas pressie I have for you today – I have some free book promotions for you to peruse where you can pick yourself up some new little sparkling book treasures to enjoy. If you are a Christmas-is-almost-here panic-er like me, I hope you can find a few good books to hunker down with as the weather gets cooler (or hotter like here in Australia). Finding a new book-boyfriend always helps with any panicking – right?
