Good Evening lovely people, there is nothing like being late to one's own party!
I'm so sorry, I've said it multiple times today that I must do my post, but I find myself at 8.45pm with the first proper time to sit and write the post, so please accept my sincere apologies if you've been waiting for this one.
So first grateful last weekend, was getting out and about a little bit, venturing to a local Christmas fayre, the actual fayre was quite poor if truth be known, but we bumped into fundraisers from my son's old school who were doing a tombola to raise funds for the next cohort of pupils who will be heading off to Lesotho.
I also managed to get this beautiful photo!
Next up the arrival of my advent calendar courtesy of a group of us on UK Scrappers. This is the contents of my box, how luscious does it look!
Then there is the time I've spent making mini books recently which has been much fun
Forgot to mention the epic wood move last Friday and with hubby incapacitated and said 17 year old working is was down to yours truly to move this lot!
I don't think I did a bad job do you?
Early in the week, I dragged out my very first journal that I did for Christmas which was 2008, I can't believe I've been doing these for 9 years now, they really are a delight to look back and read. I was complaining that year of the cost of a second class stamp at 27p anyone in the UK will know that this is now half the price give or take a penny of a second class stamp!
I shared a new canvas that I made recently on Facebook it sits just above my computer screen and makes me smile whenever I read it!
Last Sunday was stir it up Sunday, the traditional Sunday in the year where you make Christmas puddings. This year I've made two (no idea why because we only need one), but they are rather lovely and make the house smell of Christmas. It is a low fat recipe and I've used it for years now and only 10 minutes in the microwave it's cooked and ready to be fed!
Here is hubby

and yours truly, all partaking in the ritual of making a wish
as part of the Christmas tradition.
Work has been busy busy busy and I've had a couple of nights when I've been so shattered I've just chilled on the sofa, but they are fun too.
I hope you've all had a lovely week, if you fancy joining in pop a post together, pop back and link up so we can come and visit.
