..but oh my, doesn't today feel like the Sunday that always follows a great Saturday? I've lost track of days; having my lovelies at home on holiday always does that to me! Yesterday we spent Christmas Day, all day at our own home. For the the first time in 24 years! My beloved parents came (loaded I might add, with prepared everything in terms of the seasonal feast). Friends came round for drinks and present swapping until lunchtime and it was all just lovely, fun and twinkly. Isn't it strange that it feels like all the preparations were ages ago already! Just the day before (technically called Christmas Eve) I had called in to Kraft Crazy to see Shopkeeper Gal - for a free coffee and to hand over a little gift. Note please that despite running card making workshops in her shop, once a fortnight throughout this year, there was no card from me. Slightly huge oversight, huh! How embarrassing. I had a lovely cup of coffee and a couple chocolate biscuits that were calling my name. Mrs Precision was there too, she was helping prepare the shop for the massive January sale. We had a chat around the workshop table and I decided no to outstay my welcome - it's a Christmas miracle. BUT as I turned around to leave - oh my - a whole rack full of new Basic Grey! And I'd been sitting with my back to it! It is fair to say that I am a BG junkie. I have more of that than any other single brand. And mostly I'm scared to death of it. All arty and patterned. Not for amateurs like me. But oh mummy, the colours! That's why I have them. The colours. So of course, I bought stuff. And when I got home, like the big girl I am, I immediately fell on my sword and told Mr Dunnit that he'd bought me some new stash for Christmas. He said: 'OK - do you want me to wrap it or are you gonna sit and stare at it?' How's that for training? He totally understands. And totally doesn't get it. Love that man. So today I've been erm, gloating. I have NO idea what I want to use this collection for, but don't worry on my account. I'll think of something.
Oh and you know that notebook that was on my desk last WOYWW? I finished it. Completely forgot to photograph it. Wrapped it up as part of a gift for a friend. However.......they weren't able to come yesterday, so it's still under my tree. Moral dilemma. Shall I or shan't I actually unwrap it, just for a couple of photos. Really, perhaps I need to get out a bit more. I will - tomorrow. It's Christmas Day at my beloved In-Laws tomorrow. The magic goes on.
