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.

    Love your table setting – looks so cosy. I adore jigsaws and know what you mean about charity bought ones. I always bag the pieces up and seal with sellotape before giving to charity and if a piece is missing write on the box. Thanks for visiting I took the food to the homeless last night and they were very grateful. A Blessed Christmas and a Peaceful New Year to you. Anickoana #20

    So organized. I am sure everyone will enjoy themselves. Lovely sweater. I do not like jigsaw puzzels as when I had cancer treatment they always had one set up in the treatment waiting room. Just an association tat always comes to mind. Can’t see too well as eyes dilated today for eye exam. Monica #22 Thanks for visiting

    Hi Margaret, thanks for the visit and the kind words. I love the multiple workstations, that is awesome. How sweet of you to have people over that would otherwise be on their own, that is truly the Christmas spirit. I like the sounds of your family Christmas all of you together – fun times. Merry Christmas to you and yours Claire #26

    Ah Margaret, I recognise the table en fete…it looks wonderful, so welcoming, I’m sur you ad a wonderful evening. The trouble with a puzzle is that everyone wants to do it!! So glad you’re enjoying some quiet time, and what an Extended Christmas you’re having! Love the cardi, you do knit up a storm don’t you! Have a wonderful Christmas. Xxxx

    Hi Margaret! I love all the puzzles! Funny, I was just thinking I need to make a place and start doing them. My Mother can’t anymore, and she has a ton she wants to pass on. I hope you have a wonderful, safe, Happy Christmas, with best wishes to you for the New Year! Hugs, -K #31

    Nicely made table! My hubby always say he´d like to make a big puzzle/jigsaw but it´s hard to make place for it with a curious cat in the house. 😀 Merry Christmas and a happy WOYWW this week! Sussie nr 16

    Merry Christmas Margaret. I’ll be in Uttoxeter at my parents on the 27th, so if you want to break your journey there and it’s en route, feel free to text me and I’ll put the kettle on. I’m sure we’ll have a jigsaw on the go too. Happy WOYWW and New Year! Sarah #9

    Hi Margaret,so glad it’s not just me who doesn’t know what day it is. It’s the problem with not being at work- I just get lost! Lovely jigsaw images, and I do like the colours in the sweater you are knitting. Have a lovely Christmas, Love & Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

    Love that table! It looks absolutely superb!Well done you. Great jigsawing time has been had by all, I bet several folks mentioned they don’t do jigsaws but then couldn’t help themselves ….!! Have a wonderful time with all your family, May God grant you journeying mercies, bringing you safely to all your destinations. Christine #10

    You are organised Margaret, and I love your dining room – the red walls are gorgeous and it all looks very classy and festive! I love a Christmas jigsaw and have ours out at the moment – it’s only small as we need the table for Christmas dinner. The cardigan is fab and a very pretty colour. Hope you have a lovely Christmas with friends and family, Diana xx #13

    You win on the jigsaw front! I thought I was good doing one let alone three 😀 Shame we don’t live nearer, we could do a swap! That’s a lovely idea having Christmas dinner with those two others, you are a really kind soul Margaret. Your dining table looks a real treat all done up ready like that. Safe travelling and I hope you have a wonderful time with your family 🙂 Thanks for all the support this year – see you in 2018! Hugs LLJ 6 xxxx

    Well, Margaret I think we can safely assume you like doing jigsaws! What a lot you have done in such a short time, The first would have been there for ages had it been me. Love the cardigan and am thrilled to read you are entertaining people who would normally spend the day alone. God put you on this earth for a very good reason. You are a blessing in yourself. Have a wonderful time, enjoy your family as I know you will. Take are on the roads. God Bless, Neet 3 xx

    Hi Margaret! Hope the season brings all you wish for and more! Love the cardi you’ve made…
    Wed, 20 Dec 2017 06:59:25

    Have a fabulous Christmas yourself, Margaret! I am down to the shopping to do which I will be doing in the next couple of days (surprising how much extra I need for just me on my own, but I like to do a nice dinner for Christmas!) Hope the trip to your family Christmas is kind to you! Much love. Helen #1 xx
