Flash! Friday (Saturday) – Naughty or Nice?

This is my response to Rebekah Postupak’s Flash! Friday Challenge for this week.

“Santa, this isn’t a party here.” PC Jones sighed with frustration, “there is no need to dance for your mug-shot.”

“Yes,” Santa replied with a grin, still with his left foot pointed and arms in the air, “but seeing as you insist on doing this every time officer I may as well make it fun for me!” He moved for his side photo.

Jones rolled his eyes, “if you stopped pranking us we wouldn’t have to keep taking you in.”

“It’s only a bit of fun!” Santa giggled as the light flashed for his second photo, “I did no harm!”

Jones raised an eyebrow, “You painted the outside of the police station red and green!”

“Bricks just really aren’t that festive!” He retorted, his grin widening.

“How though? You’re not even four inches tall!”

“I’m Santa Clause, and I have a job to do! Merry Christmas to you!” With that he clicked his fingers and disappeared leaving a shower of glitter to rain down on PC Jones.

Merry Christmas, and thanks for reading!

Three Things Thursday – More Festiveness, and also the Grinch!

Okay so first things first. (Though technically it’s tomorrows news) One of my best friends is getting back from her eleven month gap year trip, and I am probably far too excited, but there you go. I missed her heaps!! I’m waking up early early to meet her at the airport, then my friends and I are having a dinner that night with her where we will possibly hand out our Secret Santa presents. We started it a few years ago and it’s a lot of fun.We put a lot of effort into our choices, plus the presents are never really too serious which is great!

So last night I watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas for the first time with my dad, sister and stepsisters – I absolutely loved it! It was hilarious and Jim Carrey as the Grinch could somehow be creepy and funny at the same time. I think it definitely tops as one of my favourite Christmas movies along with Love Actually and The Holiday! I’ll chuck a trailer in here because why not and I love it…plus it’s nearly Christmas!

So at number two this week: I spent the whole of yesterday clearing out my room! And boy in really needed it – for some reason I seem to hoard rubbish and also clothes which no longer fit me. Plus I’m sorta moving out next year, so the less I have to move the better. My room, the insides of my chest of draws Eugene, plus the small wardrobe which before was a messy sight, are all cleared and organised so I can actually find things. Yay!

What’s the third thing you ask? More smile worthy coffee art! Yes, we found Casper in my coffee, well I say ‘found’, dad has fun making faces and it just turned out to be Casper! How awesome is that!!?



What’s made your week great and smile worthy!?
One week til Christmas!!

Three Things Thursday – Festive Edition!

*three things that make me smile: an exercise in gratitude – feel free to steal this idea with wild abandon and fill your blog with the happy* ~Nerd in the Brain

Sooo, December again! That festive time of year with snow woolly jumpers, beanies and scarves wrapped around your neck so many times it doesn’t look like you have any neck at all. Well, unless you live in Australia! For us it’s all pools, fans, sunburn and as little clothing as possible without being nude… anywho, one thing though that we have in common – Christmas tree’s!!

So basically as we are so close to Christmas my three things are trees, tree things and one not so tree thing…but it made me smile!

So first our Christmas tree 🙂 Doing my sisters and I spent the night doing this and we were all really happy with it! It’s a little miss-matched and we couldn’t find the lights but we love it! 🙂


Okay  so one of my sisters and I went into town to do some Christmas shopping and we absolutely fell in love with some decorations. Me, I couldn’t keep a straight face when I found ‘Grumpy Owl’. To me he looks to be a cross between completely done, grumpy and kinda sad. I couldn’t not add him to the collection! 🙂 (From left to right: ‘Grumpy Owl’, me, my sister Ev! [you should go check out her blog by the way!])

My dad made me this coffee this morning! With the words “Your coffee is smiling! Smile!” And it definitely did make me smile, yummm, it was a beautiful coffee too!

What made you smile this week!?
Thank you for reading, and have a good week!
