Love your idea of a card exchange. I buy different packs of cards for different groups of people so the pack I use for neighbours will be different from the pack I use for friends for example. I never really set out to do this but I just sort of end up doing it this way.

Anyway I am sure no one would mind if they got the same card, they may not even remember. Perhaps you can keep them for next year and that way it leaves a bit of time between.

I feel the sae way about everything Jennifer. Christmas Eve is also my favourite day of the year, it's the climax of the season for me! I am also comforted in knowing that you all will be here when those January blues kick in. I bet you are looking forward to weekend, I will be pulling my decorations down from the loft on Saturday!


Hey Frosty, been thinking of you and wondering how you all are coping. Again, I am so sorry for your loss. Keep courage friend.





Glad to hear you are feeling better!



How exciting! can't wait to hear what she has planned!



Keeping you and your mum in prayer Virginia.

XMAS65 - Car looks great!

Xmastidings - Hope you had an enjoyable 50th birthday. Sounds like you did

Merry Cary - Hope all goes well with the tree today.

Snowflake - How's your decorating coming along? Can't wait to see the photos!

HomakinGirl - Love those Christmas themed tissues!

Everyone else - Have a wonderful day and sending best wishes!
Hey Festive!

It has been going well, but I work all week so it is on hold again until the weekend =]

How about you? How are things?

A deranged friend once gifted us with a CD he had compiled of "Rudolph" by 15 or 20 different artists I think it's still around here somewhere, if you're missing any!
Ahh!! Good catch!!!

I forgot to mention a few days ago I saw the coca cola advert! We were all super excited when it came on as it has always been a big sign of the season!

How can it be Thursday already! My Christmas decorations are coming down from the loft on Saturday and I will probably start putting out a few things each day starting with the small things.

Well I should get back to things , have a magical day everyone!
I love that commercial!!

Happy shopping

Have a lovely day 🎄❤️

Thanks, that's a good suggestion! Just "retire" them for a year! That would make fewer to buy next year.

They're now taking down the half-dead tree it'll be a relief to get it away from the house. The noise isn't so bad.

Turns out the tree service doing the work was featured in a National Geographic Channel reality show about their tree removal work. There's no camera crew out there today, though!

Good morning friends. I am at home with a sick kid and a sick dog. My son is going to the doc today and I'm worried he has strep.

Happy is having tummy issues and has no energy. Poor guys.

I hope you all have a great day!
