Bet you almost thought I'd forgotten my blog today didn't you?
I've been waiting for SOMETHING (anything really) to happen. We've had no snow, hubby didn't even have to defrost the car this morning!. I've had no post and I've done no crafting.
So, what exactly HAVE I done with my morning I hear you ask? Well, not a lot if the truth be known. It's one of those chilly mornings when you are a bit slow to start. I have now written 78 Christmas cards to family and friends and I have wrapped all the presents which are complete and ready to give. The reason I know hubby didn't have to defrost the car is because he very kindly took my American Christmas cards and two presents round to the Post Office for me, to get them on their merry way and to hopefully get them to where they're going in plenty of time for Christmas - well I hope so anyway since I'm now £7 lighter for the experience! I've sent my presents recorded delivery as so many things seem to be "going astray" these days. One friend has sent me a number of parcels this year which have simply never arrived. Here's hoping these will.
I may do a little on-line shopping now we've drawn the surrogate Secret Santa. Hubby and I both drew men so I'm stuffed as I had plenty of ideas . . . . for the ladies!
And TONIGHT hubby has acquired two tickets to see the Sound of Music at the Bristol Hippodrome, featuring Connie Fisher. I was supposed to see this in London in January of 2008 but got the flu and a terrible ear infection so sent hubby on his own (leaving me on my own was probably the best thing at the time anyway!) and he enjoyed both the SoM and (on the 2nd night) Chicago! I am keeping my fingers crossed that the snow forecast but not yet materialised can hold off until after we've been otherwise I shall believe myself to be jinxed!
I might do a little crafting this afternoon so you might want to check back later - so my photo today is of a pile of wrapped presents, because there's nothing much else going on but I didn't want you to think I'd been doing nothing! You can just see some of the pile of Christmas cards written too, in the left foreground.
Have a great day whatever you are doing and, if you have snow and/or ice then be careful out there.
