It's odd isn't it, what gives one the first feeling of Christmas.  It isn't the shops with their commercialism, nor even buying presents for loved ones.  It isn't the first Christmas card which drops on the mat one morning.  For me it's something which evokes memories of Christmas Past and links it to Christmas Present.

This year it was a song that did it.  There was a 4Music music show playing in the background while I was updating some stuff on Squidoo.  (I have just got another Purple Star and it was Payday - my best yet.)  It was playing through the old Christmas pop songs.  Some have lasted better than others.  But it was Fairytale of New York, the timeless classic by The Pogues and Kirsty McColl, which arrested me.  I put down the keyboard and just listened.  And it was Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I've just started another blog - which given I struggle to maintain some of the existing ones may seem a bit silly, but there's a reason. I wanted a blog for girly things, like my thoughts on a perfume or foundations. They don't really belong here. They could go on Musings but it's not ideal. They certainly don't belong on my Business or Egypt blogs, so I've created a new blog on BlogHer which seems like quite a good fit. I may run it through to my personal Twitter feed as well.

Since it's on BlogHer it doesn't matter so much if posts are very occasional.

The first post was my thoughts on Femme EDP by Rochas.
