Most of my friends on LJ have been updating almost daily their blogs and I am only one who seems to always be in a rush not to update at all! Christmas is almost here but I've been so busy that I almost noticed that today's only 3 days to X-mas!!! Years ago I used to get all hyper over the X-mas time, but now I am still not as excited as I used to be... Is this a grown up attitude to X-mas?! I already got (and opened...sorry I couldn't resist!) some parcels from my pals and online friends: everything was amazing!!! Thank you [info]badmadnad , [info]a_lenchen , [info]rakusanka , Rebecca, Debbie, Eva, Nicola. And thank you to everyone who sent me a gift or card that is on its way still. I received books, pens, bookmarks, writing paper, stickers, chocolate so far! I am a spoilt girl I know!!!  As for the gifts, I think I am almost done with it (of course I should be, because it is X-mas in 3 days time and it would be such an issue had I still to start the whole X-mas shopping): mom and dad got a religious book each, Monica a parfume and a pj, Ricky (I won't say here, because he sometimes happens to read my journal and I won't spoil the surpise here!)..., Ilaria got a whole lot of goodies from JanetStore (I had to pay more in postage to chose a fast delivery and it luckily worked great and I received the parcel almost one week ago, I now need to find a cool box to keep the goodies in) , Valentina got a box with some cocktails recipes (this is a joke, because a few weeks ago she made a mojito for me and ... well I  cut it short and say it had to be thrown in the sink! So Ricky and I thought it would have been such a fun to give her something of the like! We'll add something to it, we still need to find that something though. I wanted to buy some book, maybe something that'll come in handy in February when she's going to Spain for the Erasmus), all of our other friends will get a gift receipt that we donated money to Amref. Ricky's family will get a basket full of Umbrian food. Ricky and I decided to buy together presents for his cousins. Elisa is getting a bath cream and a lipbalm, and Lorenzo is getting a board game with some astronomy lectures. I am thinking of buying a gift to my sister's boyfriend, because he would be into reading some Dickens and since I am a Dickens fan I feel like giving it to him! I know he's be into "A Christmas Carol".  Yesterday we did the X-mas market at the Church and the earnings will go to charity. This year we'll donate the money to an old people home. We worked hard on it all yesterday, from 8.30 am to 8.30 pm... I was so tired yesterday night! We took some good shots and I am getting the piccies from a girl either today or anyway this week.          

  Bianca & I with Luana I thougth I was caught up with letters in the past few weeks, when I got 6 all together and I am behind with replies again!!! Awful! I am lucky since I will have a few days to write them before I will be able to send any mail out. Postal Service is unreliable lately and I rather not send mails over the holidays...I will send everything out again on 2nd January...Won't risk my mails to get lost again! So please, [info]badmadnad , Eva, Lisa, Debbie, [info]rockinchick24 ,[info]kriss81 be patient till the beginning of 2010. Ok, going now, gift hunting for Valentina and my pets before I attend the X-mas dinner at church with the group of secondary school pupils. Until next time...

wish a joyful, merry X-mas to all of you... May you spend it in a peaceful and serene way with your loved ones
