Hello my friends. Trust this finds you well, and not in a state of whirling frenzy. Less than a week to Christmas, presents wrapped, cards written and posted, menus planned, most shopping bought, would all be the ideal! So, no time to waste..
My desk is now tidy, the decoration boxes from two weeks ago are all put away in the attic until January, the dining table has been in full and proper use. My “workdesk” this past fortnight has varied position – so here goes!
Workdesk 1 – the dining table – “en fete” for our Housegroup Christmas dinner
Workdesk 2 – the jigsaw board – for when nothing interesting is on TV but I want a rest!
Having finished the snowy scene I decided a different, fun picture was necessary for any dedicated housegroup jigsaw fan! They had a good go at it, too – with one couple staying nearly an hour after everyone else had gone home! Of course, the biggest problem with buying jigsaws from a charity shop, second hand, is that you don’t know if all the pieces are there!
Workdesk 3 – the bedroom mirror – Finished the cardigan I had knitted some weeks back and can now model!
Back to the jigsaw board and a completely different image. A few days off for a change, just relaxing – wonderful!
Workdesk 4 – the settee – and a sweater to be knitted
So folks, that’s me 5 days before Christmas. Basically I’m all done apart from a few vegetables to buy and prepare on the day – I have two guests with me for Christmas dinner, folk from church who would otherwise be on their own, then, on Wednesday 27th I’m off for our family Christmas – both girls, their hubbies, all five grandies and me! I have a 200 mile drive, but it will be well worth the journey.
I’ll be missing next week as I shall need to be on the road just after 7am – I’d like to arrive in the daylight – so I’m going to take this opportunity to wish you a really blessed Christmas season. May you know and experience the love and joy our Father God so desires for each one of us. I’ll be around visiting folk at some point… got to do the shopping for the last step inside of 2017!
Take care my friends. God bless.
