Hello December

Three days into December time flies.

The last week has disappeared in a flurry of activity at home - mainly transforming my house back in to somewhere you just might like to sit down and linger a while, in readiness for a visit from my Dad. Just as well he was coming otherwise chaos would still reign. I used to be so tidy but somehow that habit eludes me at the moment. I've also been pretty absent from my computer - a big thank you to everyone who left a comment or emailed after my last post. I've spectacularly failed to respond to anyone. A certain equilibrium has now been restored, and I'll try and catch up.

Two parcels arrived last week, one still awaiting a photo or two, so I'll save that for another time. But this one arrived all the way from Canada:

My wonderful address file that I won in a giveaway hosted by Sharilyn of Lovely Design. I can't tell you how long I've coveted one of these. And it ticks all the right boxes for me - stationery, paper, wood, recycling....and it's so beautiful in its simplicity. My christmas has arrived a few weeks early! Thanks so much Sharilyn.

Christmas...I never quite kick into gear until December has arrived, so it ends up being a mostly enjoyable rush to get everything done. Can't wait to dive in and really get going!

Your lucky to win that file. You deserve it. Glad that all is well with you and I hope you have a good time with your dad. Enjoy getting ready for Christmas.

I am so completely in love with your new address file! After a disastrous experience with an electronic organizer, I've come to the conclusion paper is indeed best (not to mention so much prettier). K x

Hurray, you're back! Hope you had a fab time with your Dad and how lovely to have a tidy house (by which you can tell mine is not!). Lovely giveaway you won there Diana. I feel a mince pie calling.... xx
