Hello everyone! Sorry that I haven't been visiting much lately, we have been away for a little bit, but I am back now. I don't have pictures or tales to tell from our time away, just a little visit that we are keeping to ourselves right now, I am sure that you understand. Later in the week I might share a couple of things, I will see how it goes.
I have been reading your lovely blogs and keeping up with your news though and will be able to visit properly again this week. Thank you for your lovely comments over the last week, I am glad that you enjoyed the visits to Chatsworth and Lyme Park, they were fun places to visit and I see that many of you have enjoyed them too. Thank you too for the Anniversary good wishes, it was a little bit ago, but it was still kind of you to wish us well!
It is great too to know that you are all set for the card swap and are or have been busy posting your cards. Very exciting! Tomorrow I am off to the Post Office to post my Christmas Cards and various swaps so that will be my first Christmassy job all done. It seems like a good place to start though. I haven't opened any of my post yet, but I see that I have several envelopes that look like Christmas cards, so thank you if yours is amongst them, I will let you know that I have heard from you when I go through my post - another job for tomorrow!
Then I must get down to some shopping, I only have a couple of people to buy for though so it shouldn't be too bad. The Seaglass Shawl that I am making as a gift is nearly done too.
The rest of tomorrow will be getting on with laundry and other catch up jobs after being away, the supermarket is calling too, we always need food don't we.
We don't decorate for Christmas until about 2 weeks before the big day, as we keep our decorations up until as near to twelfth night - 6th January - as we can, so 2 weeks before Christmas is enough for us. Once I am all sorted though I will get the Christmas china out of the loft so that we can start using Christmas cups, it is never too soon to have a cup of Christmas Hot Chocolate is it!
Tonight I am planning a not too late night and before that I am catching up with my tv shows as the recorder box didn't record anything at all while we were away so I have to watch it all on demand while I can!
Hope that you are all well, see you soon!
