The Weekend

Well I have had a relative quiet weekend compared with last weekend.  Friday I met Samantha in town after she finished work and we had a couple of hours Christmas shopping together.  Yesterday Joe and I ventured to Toys R Us late afternoon with a drop into Boots next door, to get him some NRT as he’s has not smoked since we went to Caracassonne on the 16th November.  So I’m really proud of him as he was a 20 + a day man.   It has also spurred Samantha and Ashley to stop smoking and they are going into their 3rd week – well done them too.

I

am off to Tracey’s tomorrow night for a  card making get together which I’m looking forward to.  I’ve been busy making birthday cards today as I have a run of birthday’s in December and January – so hopefully I will be well prepared! lol  These I will post later on in the week.  I’ve used a couple of Penny Black stamps for them.

I went to Church the morning which was lovely – 3rd Advent Sunday so everything is getting Christmassy.  There was iced fruit cake and wine or non alcoholic ‘wine’ afterwards which was ratehr nice.  I opted for the non alcoholic as I was driving.  I then went up to see Cameron and Emily and had a indoor picnic on the floor with them – just delightful.

I’ve included a bit of Christmas cheer in this posting, a picture of Joe beside our Christmas tree & our Nativity.

I put my very first SU order in last week I chickened out and phoned Chris in Germany to do it :) So hopefully that will be with me next week.

Well  hope you all have a great week – back to work tomorrow but and only 12 sleeps to Christmas :)

best wishes to all
