2 more sleeps to go

before Katerina arrives. Lots of things are crossed off the to do list.....but still going to be a busy day today. I didnt get up till 6 so its a bit of a lie in for me, especially as I was in bed at 9p.m. last night.
What a lovely day I had yesterday. It started off at Bluebells, this is a farm just outside Derby, not only do they have a lovely little cafe there, also a little shop, a Christmas Marquee and a santas grotto. Lots of lovely home made ice cream, a play area and in the summer a maze. Farm animals that children can go and see too, it was delightful. 8 of us met up and had a good chin wag and it was a pleasant change to being in a craft shop. Really christmassy.
Then I came home and it was up the ladders to the dreaded loft brrrrr, its cold up there. Down came the bags and the boxes and a few hours later, hay presto, its Christmas. The decs are up, the cards are displayed and Paul put batteries in all the singing toys. Yes we have lots of them. knock knock on the door and in come the grandchildren, ohhh lovely. How they have all grown. A couple of hours of laughter and natter and catching up with news and when they leave the house is soooo quite, and then the day is about over.

What do you think of these?

My mum has made them for me, photos arent brilliant. Isnt she clever? Mum makes baby cardis, jackets etc. all the time as she loves doing it.

CONGRATULATIONS to Debbie who is a fellow crafter, a Derby Dabbler and a SU fan. She is now Mum to a little girl and I hope that I get chance to pop up to see her later this week to take up cardis and cards.

Have a lovely day whatever you are up to and thanks for having a read. It would be great to hear if you are all ready for the big day or if you have a list as long as your arm.
