Emma Divine

On Saturday Night, I was lucky enough to go the Myer windows, and as you might have guessed by my previous blogs, When it comes to Christmas, well what can I say, I am like a little kid at Christmas, so I was very excited to be going into the city, the fact that I got to see the windows too, was just the best. But, I was extra surprised to see that the story chosen for this year was on a character that reminded me very much of, well me.

For those of you that don’t know, the book the windows are based on is called “Wombat Divine” but I think that if they changed that to “Emma divine” the story still be true. Anyway the story is about the wombat that has big dreams and hopes for a staring role in the nativity play, but let’s just say he is not exactly suited for most of the roles…

He is too heavy to play Gabriel…
Too big to be Mary,
Too clumsy to be the Inn Keeper
Too short to be one of the kings
And…just to really hit home…
Too short sighted to be a shepherd.

I know, its like my life story, but in the end it turns out okay, for me, I mean the wombat, because he gets to play baby Jesus, so maybe there are still bigger and better things for me. If you haven't already seen them, go and do it, coz it wouldn't be Christmas without them.

Just a thought I had…

Stay tuned.

Maybe I should make the effort to go and see them this year. I think I have only gone to see them once in my entire life. I was actually in the city yesterday and saw people looking at them during the day, but I decided that if I was going to actually see them that I wanted to do it at night.

Hehe, yeah I had gone home, but I've been back for almost a week (only have a week and a half at home) and I'm off home again tomorrow morning.
By the way, I saw the Myer windows last night.
