I LOVE Christmas, just love it!!! My head is so full of plans and creative mojo that I could just be making and preparing 24/7 and still not finish it all in my head. This year I am trying to be organised, trying to think ahead and have as much as I can done, but my head is stull full of plans and ideas that it hurts a little.
I have the majority of my presents wrapped, my cards gone, my teacher gifts ready and chilled in the fridge, my 15 jars of Cranberry sauce ready, my first 5 dozen mince pies made, and those special cards made too. You would think that with this lot done my head would be clear - but NO, I am still bashing myself up that I am not ready and most nights I have a "to-do" list and tonight I just sat and did nothing apart from watching X factor. No Kirsty and Phil's perfect Christmas is on and my stress levels are increasing as I just want to be like them - a bit like the Stepford Wives idea of Christmas... Not good eh!!
Any hoo! - I sat beside the fire last week when we had a mountain of snow and told the kids to pretend I was not here, well if I went out to work I would be entitled to a lunch hour, and there was a week when I had the kids 24/7 and no lunch hour so it was much needed. So I sat beside the fire and made this little card.
Vobe Interiors and she asked if I sold them! LOL I don't but I was very touched and pleased she liked it.
Actually she is the lady that I ordered all my new furniture from, using the idea that if I ordered it all from the same place and it saved me time as I don't have much spare time to travel from shop to shop picking each item, so my couches have been delivered, new lights up, and waiting for the rest of it soon I hope. New blinds coming next week - so getting there. Just need a bit skip for all the toys in this house!
Ramble over - off to maybe tackle something from my crafty list. Nite all....
