Merry Christmas

Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas Season.

Be kind to all, including animals. Take care and be positive and help others.

Here is a link to a Christmas poem that I wrote:


And click HERE for a Power-point with animals, kindness, friendship and a song by John Lennon. You may need to re-name / save the file with a PPT ending to open it using Microsoft PowerPoint, then run it as a slide show.


Well, lately Karen Carpenter’s version of “SING” popped into my head, so I had to go & find the You Tube version with the lyrics and post it here!  I have a suspicion that I suddenly thought of it as part of my motivating myself to stay happy and positive amidst the “maddening crowd” ( or not pleasant world and other events in 3-D at the moment ) – to assist in my recuperation from major surgery in mid October.

It also reminded myself that several years ago I myself wrote a poem, about Christmas, which could be a song!  I have no idea how to set it to music or make amendments to set it to music.  If anyone reading this wants to do so, and let me know, PLEASE do so.  This poem is my Gift to you.  It is nice to give back / to Pay it forward / and to be in the PRESENT.

Namaste,  Celine

Wish upon Your  Star

Starry, starry starlight

The first star that I see tonight

Have this Star-felt wish tonight

Peace, wonder, love and light

For love, that is what is right

Natio gift to myself

At last I spent the $50 that my partner’s sister very kindly gave me for my Birthday which fell in September.  Off I went to Myer together with a $20 gift card so my prize totalled a grand $70.  A few weeks ago I won a $20 Gift Card to use at Myer / Coles / K-mart / Target through a competition at work.  That competition was about workplace safety where I and only one other person submitted an entry about why one should be safe in the workplace.  I had a fifty percent chance of winning, even so my entry was entertaining and proper enough to win the $20 Gift Card, a great prize.   Here is a scanned image of the Gift card.  It’s nice, isn’t it?

Myer Coles Gift Card

Well, I didn’t want to rush into spending my rewards so I took all the time in the world doing my research by looking at catalogues and at would-be purchases online.  I rather fancied going with some Natio products, such as the Natio Treasure’s Blockbuster set below.   Click on the picture below for more information.

natio-treasures-setThis set cost $60 at Myer on special reduced from $110 but once I got to Myer I saw a beautiful red and white themed selection of Christmas sets from Natio, which I thought were not expensive.   In the end I decided to forego the Blockbuster set above and opted for a Natio “All Yours” set which cost me only —- nothing.

The price tag was $50 but of course I used my birthday cash.  I quite liked the “Face” set for $28 too especially the little facial cleansing brush, so will probably buy that set next and add the brush to my bathroom supplies.   The “All Yours” set comes with a fold over clutch type toiletries bag, with see-through plastic coverings, so it looks like a jewellery pouch when you open it, only you put toiletries inside it of course, not jewellery (though of course you can put jewells in it if you really want to).

Last but certainly not least, I also bought the   Natio Men’s Blockbuster Set  as a Christmas gift for my partner, whom I am sure will be very pleased with it.

The Meaning of Christmas

Lion and the Lamb

Here is a poem that I wrote in 2007 about the meaning of Christmas to me. Wishing all a pleasant and peaceful Christmas 2012.
