I hope your day has been good.
Have lots of you finished work today?
My hubby "broke up" today and they had their Christmas celebration at a restaurant early afternoon.
My friend was calling round with a card for us and telephoned this morning to make sure that it was still OK to call round. (I had promised her a cup of tea and a mincepie).
I am quite lucky in that my friends do realise that although I am at home I am working and trying hard to earn an honest crust.
I could tell she felt guilty for interrupting my day so I told her that she "had" to come because it was the nearest I was going to get to an office party.
Well that was it. She was duly persuaded and arrived on my doorstep shortly after armed with Christmas crackers (so we could wear party hats), a present for a Secret Santa, Pringles, cheese and tomatoes so we could have a little Christmas buffet alongside our mincepie and tea (I needed to drive later so no alcohol allowed!!!).
It was such a laugh and in the end I wrapped all of our presents whilst we had Michael Buble singing in the background (sadly only a CD .. .. he wasn't actually here in person) and we nattered for England. A great productive session and a great laugh at the same time. I feel a new tradition starting.
So what happens? I wrap all the presents and find that a day label making with everyone the other week didn't produce enough labels .. .. so tonight I have made some more .. .. ..
These were all made from a Nestabilitie Label Die set, all the leftovers from my Pink Petticoat Christmas makes, Cuttlebug embossing folders and snowflakes from my still overflowing snowflake box. Bit of a rubbish photograph but it gives you an idea of what I have been up to.
I think more will be needed tomorrow!! That will teach me to suggest buying £1 presents for everyone at the Christmas table. That will use 12 out of my box!!! Eeeekkk!!!
Just one more present to deliver to our Auntie and Uncle tomorrow and we should just about be ready. Yippee .. .. just for once I think I am going to be ready ahead of time and not be wrapping on Christmas Eve!!!
Catch you tomorrow.
