Christmas and New Year

After a frantic spell in the run-up to Christmas with orders still coming in on Christmas Eve, I was all set to put my feet up until New Year. It was a lovely surprise, therefore, to be straight back in the thick of it come Boxing Day and it was back out with the packing tape, staples and catalogues ready for the post office re-opening on 28th! No rest for the wicked!

Christmas was lovely, being back in our own home and enjoying our creature comforts (even if we did have to hide huge piles of unpacked boxes under large sheets when visitors came!). Our new blinds arrived just in time so we didn't have to bring in the New Year with newspapers stuck up at the windows. Our own bedroom even has curtains now (ok, so they are recycled curtains rescued from the dust-sheet pile but the colour was such a good match it seemed a shame not to use them!). The downstairs loo even has blinds so it's all starting to look very civilised. Crossing my fingers now for the new carpet due on 7th and then we can start on the living room.....

Santa delivered some lovely new books so I must have been a good girl last year - indigo dyeing, fabric decoration and felting, so heaps of inspiration (just need to find the time now - wish you could buy that on ebay). Lots of yummy treats from the Lush shop (the best smelling shop in the world) will see me spending (even more) time in the bathroom - good job we now have two! I'll need them too if my "do more exercise" resolution pans out (sorry, probably a bit too much information there). As I re-visit this one every year, I don't hold out much hope but who knows....?
