Hello, hello, hello!
I've soooo much to show and tell you but I have to wait just a teensy little bit longer ...*
Since we last spoke, I have become an auntie again, the mother of a teenager and turned 40! D took me to Paris for three days which was absolutely fabulous - I'm dying to show you the photos.
Without the temptation of regular peeks into Blogland, Pinterest etc., I've managed to get nearly almost completely organised for Christmas! Pressies are all bought (two have been handmade - must do better next year) and wrapped, the fridge and cupboards are full of knock-your-socks-off Stilton, hams for roasting and enough booze to float a very large ship and the house is sort of tidy and bedecked with festive garlands (not tinsel though, I can't bear it - meh!).
Blondie Son finally breaks up from school tomorrow and Blondie Daughter on Friday and, as usual, both schools have crammed as much as they possibly can into the last couple of weeks of term.
All in all, December has so far been a whirl.
*Anyway, without boring you with the details, my dear little laptop, weighted down with 52 viruses (yes, 52!!), is teetering on the edge and awaiting a major rebuild operation in quarantine. I've been BEREFT without it. However ...
D received a largish square parcel from the Apple Store yesterday and whisked it off with a knowing look in his eye!!! It's now wrapped and under the tree with my name on it!!! Weeeeheeeeeeee!
So my dear friends, please bear with. I'll be back to catch up with you all very soon but, in the meantime, may I wish you all a simply wonderful Christmas.
