Naughty or Nice?


He's making his list ... he's checking it twice ... he's gonna find out ... who's naughty or nice ...

I am obviously nice ... because I have had confirmation recently ... from PC World of all places!

I picked up the phone the other day and the man from PC World says ... "Hello ... Is that Mrs Newman?" ... it really annoys me when they do that ... just because I am a female and they rang for Mr Newman ... well everyone assumes I must be Mrs ... and I am not! So I can be a little bit abrupt in my denial ... this did n't appear to trouble Mr PC World because he says ... "Oh ... Is Mr Newman there?" I says yes and he says ... "it's PC World ... Can you just tell him his pink laptop is now in stock" ... "I will!"  I says grinning widely and "I think you ... Mr PC World may just have told me what I am getting for Christmas". Needless to say ... I ran down the stairs ... like a child ... and said to John ... "that was PC World on the phone ... your pink laptop is in" ... well ... I nearly felt bad ... I say nearly ... because it was exactly that ... the look on John's face ... and again when I later announced that now I know what Santa is bringing me ... well I clearly need another surprise gift too :0) Told you ... I am definitely nice :0)

I have rambled on long enough not to have to mention my desk or indeed the fact that I am still making Christmas cards to Julia and her followers.

All that remains for me to say is that I hope to visit it you all in the next day or two and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy and Creative New Year!

If you don't have a blog ...  Have the Bestest Christmas ever and Thank you for joining me on my journey this year!

Merry Christmas everyone!

Green with envy here……..What a shame the man for PC World spoiled your Christmas surprise but I’m pleased that you’ll be getting a lovely ‘PINK’ laptop.

Your desk still looks like a very industrious place and the tag in progress is lovely.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

LOL. How rubbish is the PC World man??? Surely he would have an inkling the PINK computer just might not be for MR Newman! Enjoy your pressie and Merry Christmas.

Oh Linda! I have just read this out, inbetween loud guffaws, to Craig who has promptly said he knows how the poor bloke feels. Much shaking of head. More laughing from me. Priceless. Poor John but how funny!
