I did it! Yaay for Me. (Or Thank God November is done!)

I absolutely cannot believe that I posted every day in the month of November.
My mother always said I started things and never finished them.
She was mostly right but I have a sense of achievement which is probably out of proportion to the accomplishment.
Sometimes it was hard.
and sometimes I just thought 'what the hell' and didn't want to do it.
every time I did do it, I was more than pleased that I did.

Now getting back to reality I have to start panicking over Christmas.
Well not really, but aren't people going more mad than usual?
It seems like Christmas started ages ago and I've just put my Christmas tree up and it's not even December.
That's never been known.
I felt I was 'late'.

People are so flippin' competitive.
I heard two ladies discussing how much they'd achieved already.
As if it was a race to the death.
It's just getting completely out of hand.
I wanted to shout, "Well I've got MY bloody turkey in the oven. So that beats both of you!"
but that would have been stupid.
So I didn't.

Thanks for all of the great comments in November.
I'm off to bed.
See you in December.

Mark said...

Well done Clippy, pet.

I enjoyed your posts - and learned what Flash Mob was.

Try and post more than just November next year, eh.

Steve said...

Well done that woman! Dragon duly slain! Let this be a lesson to you, young missy - you can do anything if you want to!

C said...

Cheech: Don't be such a flaming nit picker. THIS post is for tomorrow, which is now today. I'm finished! believe me, I'm finished.
Now I'm coming over there to count YOUR posts.

Pam: Aww thanks Pet. x

Mark: Thanks hinny. LOL My aim was to teach. Well it wasn't of course, but hey if you learned something then there you go. Flash mobs are addictive aren't they. I always keep one eye open now when I'm out and about, ye never knaa.

Steve: This is so true. Next, I'm going to climb a mountain. Or something. :-)

C: I've just put my Easter eggs on to boil!;-)

Lakeland Jo said...

I've had a super month thanks in part to your posts...I suppose you wouldn't feel like carrying on through turkey time, would you?

Gill - That British Woman said...

well done at the completing the task......


Clippy Mat said...

Suz: On not it's not. Cos I was just over at your blog so I know you're fibbing.

Jo: I wish I'd told 'em too. They were in line behind me in the store and were bloody prattling on about how they'd done this and done that and only had the other left to do and they kept one upping each other.
Most annoying!

Molly, Fly, Gill:
Thank YOU for coming over here and reading this stuff.
