Christmas Wishes

Just a moment to reflect gratefully upon a year with many changes, blessings and a wonderful family and friends. May you have a safe and happy Christmas and, for those of you traveling, honk if you see me speeding-- and get home safely.

In honour of the festive season, I shall hereby list the collected gift of an Advent Swap, a December birthday, and Christmas time, in the ‘you smell, and need better lighting’ category:

2 wash cloths in the shape of cup cakes
A set of 8 fizzing bath bombs
A set of Aroma Spice (the little known, ‘lost’ Spice Girl) handwash, bath elixir and shower essence (oh no, no bag-standard concoctions for me, it’s elixirs and essences all the way baby!!)
A rose, geranium and ylang ylang bath soak and shower wash set
A bubble bar slice and soap
A mini mint scented Yankee candle
A set of 2 bath bombs and a cat shaped face cloth (ok, ok, I’m getting the picture, you all hate my face!)
A citrus mint air freshener (what, even the air around me smells now?!)
A car air freshener (obviously my personal stench is worse in confined spaces)
A tinned ‘Relax’ candle (I’m only stressed cos people keep giving me these hints!!)
A tealight sized candle (acceptable, as it came with a pamper set consisting of a choccie dipper, hot chocolate, and…wait…a strawberry face mask! Ok, ok, I get the point about my face – i.e. hide it…)
A raspberry and plum candle
A raspberry and plum oatmeal face soap (not only do I smell, but I need to buff my face!?!?)
Raspberry and plum body lotion (yup, slather that on, cos obviously I’m looking like a dried out mummy…)
A Yankee Candle burner and 7 tarts….

In light of these subtle hints, I intend to spend the next year locked in a small hut in a remote jungle, wrapped head-to-toe in cotton impregnated with intensive moisturisers, and only venturing out at night to rub my face on some rocks to improve its texture…it’s for the good of society.

*whimper*

Oh wait, I forgot the old lady lavender gift set - body lotion and bath stuff....I'm going to save it for another 40 years until I can really get the benefit of smelling like an old lady....

Quite the hint the coworkers are leaving!! And here I only got two candles and a singular washcloth--albeit said washcloth has an elephant on it.

Sounds like a lovely collection
