Merry Christmas Everyone...

Hi folks...woohoo...just 2 more sleeps until the big man in the red suit pops down our chimneys. I'll be heading off shortly to do battle with all the "picking up last minute bits and pieces" folks at my local M&S...the crazy annual expedition guaranteed to have me counting to ten and that's just to get a parking space. I'm under no illusions that it will be any saner inside the store...if past years are anything to go by it will be ARMAGEDDON...PANDEMONIUM and BONKERS BEDLAM all rolled into one. The world and his wife will be out in force with their overloaded trolleys...the folks who are either feeding the five thousand or haven't cottoned on to the fact that the shops are only closed for 2 days. If I make it home in one piece I'll either be celebrating with coffee and a mince pie...
or if my level of frazzledness has gone through the roof...I'll be popping a cork and having a little glass of fizz...
The cubbyhole is closed for the holidays and meals for the next 2 days are sorted...
and after tackling the washing-up...
I'll be putting my feet up and my jammies on for a couple of chill out days snuggled up with my "with me every step of the way" Furry Wingman...he's been on the guarding the oven door/licking the floor clean/ taste testing kitchen shift for the last week and has definitely earned his share of the turkey on the big day. 

A big thank you to all my lovely design team mates and crafty friends for the beautiful cards and good wishes and to all the lovely folks who have popped by my blog this year and left comments...we truly appreciate you taking the time to visit. We hope you all have a wonderful happy and fun festive celebration with those you love and that all your Christmas dreams come true.
Lots of Christmas Love and Hugs
from Kath & Buddy xxx
