Taking Stock - November

Life has been hectic and I'm riding the waves of mixed emotions.

I hope my knee surgery for very damaged cartiliage last Thursday is successful so I can get back to doing all the things I love and unfortunately the cleaning.

The Orthopedic surgeon said I also have significant arthritis in my knee and since I'm a youngen' (love this guy) they'll try to stetch me out a few years before the replacement I'll eventually need.

November 30 did this happen ?

Time to take stock

A few of my favourite things Myer Giftorium

What can I say - you have to see it for yourself Myer Giftorium is reminiscent of all the Christmas movies, childhood stories and everything magical about Christmas.

The launch was colourful, bustling and bursting with excitement.

I spy Sam - The Annoyed Thyroid.

Marvin's magic is back too...Sam was waiting for Marvin
Eyes were popping and for once my boys were momentarily speechless until the "MUM, look" "MUM can I have?"

This still works - best whispered !

 If you're  tryin’ to decide between getting someone a CD , a wine rack or a 20 piece dinner set or a GIANT jar of personalised Nutella - go the Nutella !

Though with 2.5 million gifts across the Myer range - you never run out of options.

A bargain at $12.95.

Myer is the only place to get your personalised jar in store or online.

Myer Giftoriums across Australia have the same basic kit (with a few exceptions with specialist Pop up brands like Build a bear, Benefit and Dilmah tea.) A sensational festive and fun - one stop shop.

Lot of Pop- up shops featuring

Such gorgeous Trees with all the trimmings.

Fitness was my pick - spoilt for choice - now for the boys to point Dad in the right direction.
