A very Allsorts Christmas

Christmas is a little allsorts here in more mays than one...

We have broken tradition this year and gone with a candy coloured setup and I'm loving it. We've spent so long waiting for SUMMER down in this part of the world that decorating in dark green and dark red just doesn't seem right. Anyone else know what I mean????

Also with all the wedding planning going on, I'm not really feeling the Christmas spirit yet, even though I'm usually a Christmas nut! It'll hit me soon... right?

P.S I was going to use this line to make excuses for the scrappy looking gift-wrap... but come on, it's all going to be torn off by a 5 year old kid in a matter or seconds!

P.P.S -----ED NOTE---- "Allsorts" (i.e. Liquorice Allsorts) are a candy here in New Zealand... maybe they aren't such an American thing, I'm not sure. :)
