Hi everyone I hope you are all surviving the stresses and strains of the Christmas preparations and avoiding the awful germs going around!
Jim has managed to pick up a dreadful cough and cold and has spent 3 days in bed, men always seem to take it to the extreme :) I'm ok thank goodness although I did have a poorly day on Sunday but just dosed myself up and away it went!
I thought I'd show you a photo of my friend and I at the BBC doing the news, it was a brillinat tour and I would highly recommend it:

We had a lovely weekend with Charlie and got to visit the Christmas market at Winchester which was very festive.
I have managed to finish all my present wrapping and Christmas cards are all sent! We should have been in Somerset visiting my sister Karen but because Jim isnt well we have had to postpone until the weekend and then we are off to Portsmouth on Wednesday for Christmas. When Charlie heard we were all coming down he said "hooray".
Here are a few of my cards that I have been making:

A box card for Charlie

A Xmas tree for Keir & Lara

I have a few more but they are being given out on Thursday and I don't want the recipients to see them :)

It just leaves me to say Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends and I hope you have a wonderful time and a happy and prosperous New Year!



Fabulous cards Val - I love the Santa box card, and I'm sure Charlie will love it too!
Next time you are reporting the news on TV, could you please leave out the nasty bits - we don't seem to get good news any more!
Have a fabulous Christmas - hugs, Sylvia xxx
