Merry Christmas Everyone

Morning folks....blimey it's Christmas Eve...can you believe it and the shops will soon be closed....thank goodness for that....if I've forgotten anything...we will just have to do without.....I seem to have done nothing but shop and cook over the last few days......The Budster has taken up residence in the kitchen....even when he is snoozing his nose is twitching.....must admit the smells were getting to me too...and of course the cook has to have a little taste of everything....but he's in a bit of a huff because he is not allowed anywhere near the parcels under the tree....oh yes...he has been known in the past to sneak in there and get ripping....so definitely out of bounds until Christmas morning when the room will be filled with the remnants of his ripping fetish.  Can't quite believe after all the panicking and running around like a headless chicken that everything is at last done and dusted........although I did have to burn the midnight oil somewhat....so it will be off to bed early tonight...all snuggled up and cosy and hopefully fast asleep before Santa comes a-calling.
Fingers crossed the weather doesn't get any worse......if the folks coming to share our Christmas Table don't arrive...crikey we will be eating turkey and sprouts well into January.

And the winner of Buddy's Bumper Give-Away is.......

if you e-mail me (kathinwesthill@btinternet.com) with your address I will get your bumper box of goodies off in the post next week.......so all that is left to say is.........

WE WISH YOU ALL A 
VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS





and a big thank you to all my lovely teamies and our bloggy buddies for the beautiful cards and good wishes and to all the lovely folks who have visited my blog this year and left comments.....I really do appreciate you taking the time.  I hope you all have a wonderful happy and fun Christmas with those you love.....enjoy all the fabulous food and worry about the diet later.....and that Santa brings you lots of crafting goodies.
The cubbyhole is looking a bit bare now that all the Christmas stuff has been tidied away....and it's time to close the door until after Christmas although I am itching to play with my new Hero Arts stamps which arrived from The Glitter Pot yesterday....but to be honest I am well and truly crafted out.....so I am resisting the urge and am off to put my feet up with a coffee and a mince pie or two and watch the new Harry Potter movie on DVD.......winding down for Christmas when I intend to laze around as much as I can.
lots of love and big bloggy hugs
from

Buddy
and me

  2. hope your guesta arrive safely. My MIL has a humungous turkey to eat this year. Our car has broken down so my family won't be going to Grandma's for Christmas this year. No turkey here yet either, hopefully Daniel can find one later.

  6. Your comment about Buddy made me laugh. I have a golden lab and she ate managed to rip open lots of chocolate and eat it and then went on to eat some glittered salt dough decorations from the tree. She is a one and isnt happy about being shut out the living room. Still only one more day.

    Happy Christmas to you and yours xxxx

    Love Ann
