I've now officially finished work for a weeks holiday, along with my hubby and much to the annoyance of a certain boy who still has to go to college ha!
I am so looking forward to not having to get up while it's still dark, but we do have rather a lot of stuff planned for the week. There won't be any lounging in bed days, as we still have to get the lazy boy out of his pit in the morning...he sets his alarm which is very effective at waking me and Phil but then Hal just sleeps straight through it!
Plan of action for the week.
Monday morning blood tests for me and opticians for Phil.
The new boiler is being fitted one day, but not sure when, though it will be a day when I'm out... being home with no heating on is not my idea of a fun day!
Another day we will be going over to Bolton to see my Mum and Dad and have lunch out with them.
Wednesday we are travelling over the border into Yorkshire to meet up with the lovely Christine and Barry for a spot of lunch...looking forward to that honey :)
There will also be Christmas shopping trips though a certain someone isn't thrilled by the idea!
I have a few jobs planned to keep Phil occupied...I'm good like that :)
A new toilet to be fitted in Hals bathroom, the TV in my craft room to be connected up rather than just sitting there gathering dust, outside twinkly lights to be reinstated, and Christmas decorations to be put up.
Phil enjoys decorating the tree, I do not and so this is Phil's contribution towards the festivities. But before anyone starts to feel too sorry for him, my jobs are the endless writing of Christmas 'to-do' lists, the majority of the gift buying, all the wrapping and the unenviable task of writing out 120 cards :)
I would much rather spend the week in my craft room playing but I need to pull my finger out and get organised for Christmas.
And with Christmas in mind (better late than never)
A little candy...
Maja Design It's Christmas Time 6x6 pad. These papers are absolutely gorgeous!
I used them for This card.
And a Magnolia stamp..Santa Lucia. I think this is a special release stamp (I think??)
If you are a regular, then you know my very simple rules by now.
Candy is open worldwide, though I am not liable for customs duty that some countries impose, and I always mark it as a gift.
Candy is open to my existing followers only...I appreciate my followers and those that take the time to leave a comment, especially when I'm so far behind in returning the gesture!

Thanks for looking
