Hello my friends. The last WOYWW post before the crop. I think the current head count is 14, plus lots of hubbys coming along, so there will be lots of noise, chat, laughter, fun, cake, tea, coffee, cake, lunch – and did I mention cake? Before I show you my delightfully messy desk, let me give the crop folks some hints about getting to me… The church car park is not big – but, with (to use Julia’s phrase from last year) economical parking, there will be room for everyone. I realise that you will see “reserved” on one or two spaces – but that’s ok on this Saturday – you can ignore that. Fill all the diagonal spaces, then double park. If there is anyone else in the car park, they know about our group, and will come ask to be let out! Of course, we will insist they stay and talk to us, make a card, do some dumfing or whatever…. When you have parked, go round the back of the building and find the door, ring the bell, and we will let you in. The door that leads into the carpark has a bell, but it doesn’t matter how hard we try, we can’t get it to work! So please don’t stand there ringing that one… we won’t know you have arrived. If you arrive before 10, that’s fine – I’ll be there getting lunch organised and can let you in early. Most of you have been before, so will remember how to get to us – but if you haven’t… www.emmanuel-llandudno.org will find our church website, and the address and postcode are in there on the “How to find us” page – I checked yesterday, and the interactive google map isn’t working properly (something else for me to see to), but you can see the place quite clearly. Looking forward to greeting you. Travel safely.
So, my desk this week…
I have been in full Christmas card production mode today – and succeeded in making 16 cards before the doorbell rang! Needless to say, I didn’t get back up here to my nice space until now. So, on the desk – some paper scraps from the pad I have been using as backing for the cards, a lovely pile of finished cards, embossing powder, inks, tray, handcream, ink dusters, once again my blade hasn’t been covered – naughty me! – the handle of a pair of scissors, a box of peel-offs, some Thomas Kinkade images ready for whenever I have the opportunity to come back up here, card blanks, envelopes, card for backing the images. Right at the front there is the centre of a finished roll of DST – unable to be put into the waste bin for recycling, it is awaiting a trip to a different bin!
By the way – Kevin thinks you are all wonderful! He thinks, having done so much work on my blog over the past weeks, that this is terrific group; that all are such good friends; and that the support given is huge and beautiful. He reckoned he sat in tears over some of your comments when my John died!
So that’s me this week folks. Running round in small ever-decreasing circles preparing for about four different events in the next four days. It will all be done! All will be ready when you arrive. There is still plenty of room if you want to join us – just let me know, and I’ll cook you some lunch.
Take care folks. God bless you.
