WOYWW - I blooming finished it at last

Hello lovely people it is nearly here oh yes the month of December. I have yet to see the town with its pretty lights and still need to organise my yearly trip to eat ham at the Birmingham Christmas market but anticipation is in the air my friends.

My desk this week looked liked this:


Complete and utter carnage and then of course I had to clear it for dinner - now all it has on it is some drinks and a laptop - why I hear you cry because my friends my task today was to finish the advent calender and it is done oh yes it is done and it has been presented to my dear son and greeted with much interest - we counted along the number of days and then yes there are presents at the end. Now it is hung and filled with chocolatey goodness so I present to you (sewers please don't look at the corners, otherwise rather a proud lady!)


The done could also apply to the finished making parts of all secret Santyness oh yes or the pile of Crimble cards you can see at the back all made and ready to be written in and padded out with the obligatory summary of the year (I am holding out ladies (and gent) for the hopeful news of the sale of our flat (enquires answered (hopefully well enough) paperwork returned, searches in, surely I can start to hope again now, surely it will all be over soon.  The only current blight on my cheery landscape - some bugger snaffled me credit card details - caught very early (John Lewis have a very effective monitoring technique) but now I am without a card for a week or so and I faithfully clear my card every month but I do spend it all so I am sitting very tight and hoping it arrives sooner rather than later (very glad we stocked up on food at the weekend.....). Can I just say though I love my new book binding glue where has this stuff been for the last 2 years of my life?

Right off you go desks to been seen, there is a WOYWW banner on the right click and enter a world of WOW (like you don't know about it all already ha!)

Oooh love the calendar and well done on getting all your cards ready - I have only just started mine. Hope your card turns up soon too. My advent calendar has to compete against the Lego Star Wars one (one has the Star Wars one on odd days and then my calendar on even days and vice versa) am sure there will still be some bickering along the line though! Bless them! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl – No 4

How awful that someone swiped your card info. It's good you have food, though. I LOVE that advent calendar. And your son learned a lot, too, it sounds like.

You asked if I coped with all the company. Of course. These are my FRIENDS and they are loved dearly by me. I am always happy when I have company. I live alone (except for Bleubeard, of course), so any company is always a welcome diversion. I just didn't realize I was going to be off line so long. Happy WOYWW from #7.

Hi there and thanks for the peek into your creative zone. It looks like there is loads going on so thanks for sharing. Hope you have a brilliant week and have plenty of creative time! Sorry to hear about your CC saga, hope it's sorted soon. The Advent calender is super.

Your lad won't give a hoot about the corners, he'll just be thrilled skinny that his clever mum made him that fantastic calendar!! It's wonderful, you have far more patience than me!
That's the second time I've heard Birmingham Christmas market mentioned today! Is it very big because I'd not heard of it before! Winchester have a good one apparently and the Bath one is successful too, but very crowded and I don't like that!
Hugs, LLJ #40 xx

Your advent calendar is great - well done finishing it in time. Sorry to hear about your credit card - it's a major bore, isn't it. So many different people to notify when you get a new one, and it's all such a lot of hassle! Hope you get it sorted soon. I'm like you and clear it every month. Hate having anything like that hanging over me! Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #62
