I've had my wrists slapped yet again for being a bad blogger, but haven't had any time at all really for crafting - so I was waiting until I had something to show.
Have made a good start on the xmas shopping - not had time to make it back to Costco for the dolls house for the girls, but I'm getting there. Got the girls a my little sister and my little cousin doll each from Argos, and something for Scott. And I have quite a few bits for friends and other family.
Graham is offshore for xmas this year so I thought I'd be having a quiet xmas with just myself and the kids. Mum suggested I go to them, but I find it all a bit too much hassle; getting the kids to rush through opening their parcels so that we can all be showered and dressed to drive 30 miles out the road, then have to drive home in the dark when all I want to do is fall asleep in front of cheesey telly with a cup of tea/glass of wine and a huge box of quality street. So we've decided that mum and dad will come here for lunch - yay, I get to put the new dining table to good use! So mum's bought the crackers and is making the trifle and I just have to make the scotch broth and the turkey and trimmings. So I'm quite looking forward to it all.
I have 11 teacher's presents to give this year!! I know, blooming ridiculous isn't it?? Faith has 4 group leaders, Willow has 4 nursery teachers and Scott has 2 teachers and a classroom assistant. I have loads of Bodyshop miniatures, body butters, moisturisers, body lotions etc so I made bonny wee boxes out of a sheet of 12x12 paper each, filled them with tissue and added the wee gifts, so all I need now is some cellophane from the florist to wrap them.
I made a get well card for a friend of mine from ESP who was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer, thankfully things are looking quite good and she is terribly brave. I wanted to incorporate some pink ribbon without it being the actual pink ribbon logo.
I'm waiting for a load of buttons coming from babyhippo on eBay. I think I have a bit of a button fetish - now I just need a trip to IKEA for some storage jars haha. Graham will have heart failure if I let that slip.
And finally..... I thought I'd share this pic of my wee angels/toerags :D
