...may be a small word to describe the way I feel right now.

I was out from 9:30 am until after 19:00 hs.
Most of those hours (with due stops at the shops and banks and what have you) driving.
Most of that driving I had Betty's twins (3 years old and full of beans) in the back seat.
And, of course, Betty herself in the passenger seat.
I'm not sure who I need more energy for: the twins or the mum, but anyway.
My physiotherapist wont be so happy, as she insist I should not do stuff this way, but reality is a bitch of a life, and it was either today or never.
I did buy Sarita some Xmas pressies (which I will not write here as she will, of course, find her way to read)
I also managed to get my saved money for a Xmas present for ME.

One thing strikes in London streets though: The complete, absolute absence of the festivity feeling.....
what a shame......
Maybe because *he* is in Rio giving it all to the poor Cariocas who ll have to confront a difficult one?
They say, after all, That God is Brazilian :)

this is the Statue of Christ The Redeemer, top of the Corcovado Mountain, Floresta da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro....

(not sure if it ll work) How do I post a YouTube video here??????? helpppppppppp ppppplease!!!!!

Enjoy, my beautiful, beautiful Rio....

I'll be back, though maybe not so soon.
Merry [ insert-the-name-of-your-festivity-here]
to you all :)

Hello my dear friend!
Sometimes its worth being exhausted, that is part of living life.
Hope you won't suffer too much though.
Truly beautiful photo, I would love to see it for myself one day.

Regarding the youtube videos, it is quite easy, you just copy the Embed code to your post.

Be calling you shortly.
Take care

Hi Cynthia! I've been off the computer for days trying to get things done (always a day behind at least). Just seeing your title "Exhuastion....." hit home with me! My days are too, too frenzied for me. Even though Christmas is always on December 25, it somehow seems to sneak up on me!

So, what was your gift to yourself?

How are you my Brazilian/pommie friend! Hope it is not toooo freezing cold for you and Sarita.

I went to a fabulous new years eve party down at the harbour and marvelled at the fireworks. Hope you guys enjoyed yourself.

Talk to you again soon.
