Here we are..




Nothing in my house has magically become perfectly clean, perfectly orderly or indeed, lined up and ready for all the things we have planned.  But it's all OK, all of a sudden.  It all needs some tweaking and after last night's final wrapping session, the living areas seriously need a good hoovering and tidying.  The kitchen is full of pastry waiting to be made into other stuff and my head is full of excitement; Miss Dunnit's presents for tomorrow are not from a list...there was nothing specific she wanted so I just bought stuff I want her to have - could be a disaster, but I'm enjoying the anticipation so much!

So why am I showing you a calendar page for November?  If you were kind enough to read my last posting, you'll remember that I had a creeping feeling of something left undone.  Well, I found it.  A pile of calendars printed and ready to be made into LOs.  Not one.  No.  Not two....three!  Imagine.  The one for me will again this year be made on a monthly basis, but the others....well, if I gift them January and February, it'll buy me some time to get the others done huh?  But I was in the mood to do the other end of the year, so November it is!  Shucks.  Am pretty sure that neither of them read this, so the surprise will be no greater or lesser for knowing how last minute it all became!  But I must say, it's been a fab excuse to carve out some time at my desk.  Talking of which, if you can bear it, I'l be here on Wednesday as usual; but really, don't worry about joining in or not...no pressure, as always.  Family first, the one thing about your internet family is that they totally understand that!
Happy Christmas.  If I could bottle the goodwill that exists among us bloggers, I would...it would serve the world.

I'm glad I'm not the only one still wrapping Christmas gifts. And I'm not even home!

I love your desk from last Wednesday. Being a neat freak, I get off on clean. You should have seen mine a few days ago. It made your "normal" desk look freakishly neat.

Have a very Merry Christmas. I hope it is filled with joy, happiness, and love. And I hope Miss D likes her gifts. I'm sure she will, especially since she's your daughter!!

I hope you've had a lovely day and that there is still much joy and happiness to come. xx

Neet said...

One of these days I will do one of those calendars. Hope you had a lovely Christmas and Miss D enjoyed her presses.
Hugs, Neet xx
