Had my All Day Christmas Class on Sat before last. I was tired after that, had lots going on as well. Class was very good and hope Julia won't mind some of the photos at the end. I fear my post will be a bit/ well a lot photo heavy - sorry. When I posted last time Julia noticed a box amongst the preparation- I was going to show it in all its glory but have let a lady , who missed the morning session borrow it to help her do hers so I will show it you next week - well hopefully.
Saturday just gone I joined in the Stampin' Up! Christmas Cheer Challenge - making cards for Ronald McDonald Houses - it was held in various places across the UK. Stampin Up demonstrators held various types of events. Mine was low key at home. Some of my class members came and made some cards. Our granddaughters and DH joined in. We managed to make 120. It was a very special and happy time.
Today, rather late I know I managed to make my Christmas Cake. I am so behind with everything. I haven't even managed to put my Advent Star and other lights and Advent pieces out. Tomorrow I am out for a Festive Afternoon Tea - my friend has booked it specially as I had to miss it before as I was poorly. On Thursday I hope to catch up with a friend I've not seen for ages and I need to start shopping :-(
Well I guess Id best leave my comings and goings there for now and share my space.
Earlier this afternoon (Tues) my table was actually very tidy. After a couple of hours this afternoon crafting it looks as though I've had burglars turn the room over :-)
All this to make a small box :-)
Photos below are the ladies prior to starting and then when we stopped for the gorgeous yummy lunch.
The cards that were made for the Ronald Mcdonald Houses.
Mum recovered from the Noro Virus. Yesterday she moved to a Care home for a while. this morning she fell again , in the bathroom. She waited a long time for Paramedics to come and see her. They don't think she has broken anything though knee sore. They have said see how it goes - didn't want to send her for an xray as it was late, I think they should have done. The Care Home are not sure it's right place for her now, despite them going to see her twice and assess her. She is staying for at least next two days while they do an assessment, she may have to move. She told staff at the hospital yesterday she didn't feel well enough to leave but they told her she would be alright. She is still down in Somerset so it is very hard to do anything. The whole situation is very hard and to be honest a real mess on so many levels. I just feel so sorry for mum. She doesn't deserve it all. It makes me so sad.
Well that is all for now. Hopefully back next week.
