All is calm, all is bright

Good grief. Where did December go?
Actually, don't answer that, I know where it went.

It started with a bang - literally. J and his firends took the wall down between the kitchen and the dining room so our days were filled with brick dust, moving things around and then wet plaster.

At work we've had three Nativity performances, two discos, three parties, a Carol Service for our pupils and theiir families and an evening guest service at the Salvation Army Citadel in Hartlepool.

J has been working in Durham City so he's had long days and no weekends off so he hasn't been able to do any more work on the kitchen or anything else really. j and I didn't finish school until the 22nd and yesterday saw me at Marks and Spencers at 8am buying last minute food.

My Christmas knitting is done - scarves and socks and all wrapped before I thought about photographing them! Doh! Hopefully I might catch some of the recipients wearing them over the holidays.

We're keeping things simple for the next couple of days as we all need some down time. All the cards and pressies have gone off to J's grandchildren and our friends, the tree is up, cake is iced and I'm in my pjs heading for a latte, some knitting and the Brothers Grimm on dvd.

Enjoy the holidays!
