HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS....
Before you know it, we're nearly there! Such a lot has happened in the past three weeks what with visitors, playing with three different bands etc etc that things have rather snuck up on me. I'm looking forward to the two weeks break between Christmas Day and resumption of life, the universe and everything on January 7th :-D
It's a combination of craft and wrapping station! The Christmassy fabrics are out because someone asked for a last minute doggy bandanna and I haven't put them back on the shelves yet. There's a big box of wrapping paper that will shortly be put to good use. Just behind that is a my big butch stapler that I needed to fix cellophane onto a hamper - the gold metal tube behind that is my Irish Penny Whistle, which was in the same box as the stapler!! Don't ask me why, things must have got flung in when we were packing up our old house last August!
Other things that appeared out of boxes are these little Christmas trees that I made a few years ago - simple idea but they do make me smile and they're on the sideboard in the hall now.
Julia bought us a new glass bauble when she was here two weeks ago - it's in the middle near the bottom. And I made a beaded decoration at WI last month, it's the bright green tree top right. I love my decorations - these are the old friends that resurface each December whereas these...
.. are new. Not only did we 'downsize' to a bigger house and have to buy more furniture (!!) but we had to get some extra decorations too. Crazy but we've loved it!!
Lots of you mentioned the jigsaw last week - it seemed to strike a chord with many. I'm quite proud to tell you that hardly any dinners were burned over the course of the week and yet the jigsaw got completed without too much hassle :-D
A perfect picture to finish with - Happy Christmas to all you lovely deskers. Have a wonderful time with your family and friends. Thank you for all the amazing support and lovely comments over the year and may 2018 be happy, healthy and fun filled xxxxxxx
