Xmas Gossip

So much for Anna taking a subservient role over Xmas. OK, no cross-dressing time, but under-dressing, a bit of eye make-up, and would you believe, one evening with lipstick on. I just carried on as normal, having given the nails a trim (well, they were a bit long, even for Anna- LoL), and a file, and the eyebrows a trim and a small amount of plucking. Our two eldest came home on the Wednesday, and our youngest, who was working in Bristol on the Friday, got home at half eight on Xmas day’

We had done the presents, and had dinner, pulled the crackers and read the jokes. In my cracker was a little case with a narrow mirror on the inside of the lid, and I was told it was a Lipstick case.
‘You’ll have to swap it for something else’, someone said.
‘Not likely’, I thought. So, just before tea, I was in my bathroom trying it out, and yes, the narrow mirror is good enough to see your mouth. So I gave it the test, and put my lipstick on, using it’s little mirror. You may remember my lipstick colour is almost a perfect match for my natural lip colour, so it doesn’t show up very much. As we were using the Xmas lights for our main illumination, everywhere was dimmish, so I risked going down with my lipstick on, and no one noticed a thing. Just so cool. I didn’t push my luck to far, but I had it on for an hour or so. What with late nights and later mornings, I was able to load and empty the washing machine, so my girl stuff got a hassle free wash too..

We had a super Xmas. Lots of little presents this year, as no one has spare money, but some choice gifts there – Series 2 of ‘Doll House’, a CD or two, some British wine, a gadget for the iPhone, and lots of little goodies. We played loads of games; Mah Jong,; Wii Golf; Wii Party, (a pressie that is so much fun, and hilarious – or should I say our performances were hilarious – LoL), plus a Round Britain Quiz, which showed up some serious gaps in our knowledge.

The best bit though, was the kids getting home safely, so now we can look forward to the new year.

Have a safe and Happy new year every one, Anna x

    I got a green plastic hair grip in my cracker. No-one said ‘You’ll have to swap it’ but I’m in no hurry to add it to my collection.

    Happy New Year!

    Hi Angela,

    Jay is very suspicious of anything vaguely girly getting into my hands. I have a feeling that the grown up kids have their suspicions about me – but I don’t really care. I hope that if they do work it out, they’ll be ‘on my side’ – LoL. Our arrangement as it stands bans be form telling anyone – oops – I’m not counting you other girls though – LoL.

    Happy New year,

    Hugs, Anna x

    Hi Anna
    I’ve been away from WordPress far too long so it is good to catch up on the gossip. I’m glad t=you enjoyed your underdressing and lipstick. The key is to find what works for you and makes you happy, while keeping everyone else on your side if at all possible. So far so good for you and I’m pleased you had a cracker of a Christmas.

    Health & happiness in 2011.

    I hope to be blogging soon.

    Hugs Tina x
