I've had the day all to myself ... now there are LOTS of things to DO in the run up to Christmas, today I've cleaned the house here in Durham, a bit pointless really as we're going down to Yorkshire tomorrow for a month, so I'll have it all to do again at our house down there. But at least this house will be lovely and clean when we get back! I'm looking forward to Christmas with our family and lots of catching up with friends down there so I think it will be a busy time for us, but a welcome kind of busy if you know what I mean :)

I made some time this afternoon to play a little catch up with Dyan's advent tag challenge...

...but now I'm going to beautify myself as it's Andy's College Dinner/Dance tonight, I shan't be drinking too much 'cos I've got an early start in the morning...I'm doing a taster session at AFTH for preview day - hope to see some of you there!

Have a WONDERFUL and peaceful Christmas everybody - don't forget the reason for the season! x


  1. Lovin these tags Sandy, wished I'd have come across the challenge earlier, would have had a go. Hoe you have a great Christmas here in Yorkshire.

  2. Ha ha, love your ATC's, wonderful, you are cleaver. Isn't it a nice feeling when all the cleaning is done. Maurice has got flu, in bed, so children can't come, quite sad, but never mind, time to craft instead. xx

  3. Oooh ooh oooh can,t wait girlie. Hope you not too hungover, lol xxx

  4. I love flutterby's comment that she can use time not seeing the children for craft! Great that you found time for some too - every opportunity is a bonus. Hope the snow hasn't scuppered your journey, Jill

  5. Great tags I bought all the downloads intending to take part but just have not had the time, too busy doing Christmas cards, working and preparing for my holiday go to Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
    Have a lovely Christmas with your family.

    So wish I could have come to the taster day at AFTH...I feel like I've missed out on loads of fun :(
