Happy Christmas!

The December book is up to date but I keep forgetting to take photos in the daylight......lots of food, evenings chatting round the fire and watching movies, cooking, crafting, cuddling the cats, enjoying my Christmassy candles and just having time to do nothing. Happy Christmas season to you all xx

Five, Six and Seven......

 Time keeps marching on and this week is mega-busy so there will be a back-log of pages! Lots of dance and ballet related things too. Day 5 has a mirror sticker on it, which doesn't show very well in the photo but is pretty in real life.
 Day 6 was very stressful with various things and ended with me in tears driving home from work in the evening, so I added the Peace die-cut (it's a Kaisercraft one) to remind me that everything passes. And indeed, the situation has been resolved and will mean less stress for me in January!
One of my favourite days - cooking for a pre-Christmas dinner (I didn't go to it,just provided food!) and then lovely ballet in the evening - one of my 'freeze-and-keep' moments is that first opening note on the oboe in the overture of Swan Lake followed by the harmony of the rest of the orchestra - so many memories and magic contained in that moment - gorgeous music and fabulous dancing too, the lead female dancer was amazing.

Day three and four

 Oooh I'm finding it hard to get time to take photos and upload! I AM filling in the book as I go (more or less!) but then I hit a day that I want to add more things to and it has a pause.
I forgot how busy December was, and this coming week is even more manic - but that's part of the fun of the madness I suppose! Got a lot of shopping done today which has helped my stress levels, now I just have a few things left to get, but one of them has to be posted to Spain so I really need to get cracking on that in my free slot this week. I've had 2 nights out in a row which doesn't help, looking forward to the fire and junk TV this evening.

Day one and two

 So here are my first 2 days of December - the idea was that I would collect mementoes of the day and add them to the pages but of course that requires me to remember to collect something! I did ok on 1st but 2nd went a bit pear-shaped so I just added some more of my own bits.
Day 3 and 4 will follow in the morning when the light is out for some photo taking.
