One of us is curled up and snoring gently.
I finished parcel wrapping for the post today and sent them all off, to wing their ways around the globe. They should have gone last week but my wrist and hand were too stiff for wrapping.
I had a little day off yesterday, was very lazy, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
I did my gift wrapping in the morning and prepped dinner, well I peeled a few potatoes to roast, cut some carrot batons and shredded some cabbage, a tray of cauliflower cheese, homemade, was pulled from the freezer and a 3 bird roast, Lidl, was taken out on Saturday.
Very tasty although I did jazz up the glaze for the birds, and did not bother with gravy or Yorkshires. There was loads for 3 and enough for Tuesday as well.
After lunch of grilled cheese sarnies I settled down on the sofa, crochet to hand. The telly went on, a vary rare happening, and I watched Polar Express followed by Jungle Book. I did not sit idle,
I started on a flock of little birds for a garland.
Then, prompted by the Polar Express I dug out some brown and red and started a Round of Robins. The brown is darker in real life, I did vary the red in them and do not know which I prefer.
Then I had a go at a holly leaf, looks more like a squashed frog so I will be digging the green felt out.
This weeks 30p flowers from Tesco, I pop in every Friday evening when I do the run into Pontardawe and look to see what bargains there are. I did find some more sleep suits for the baby and a pack of 6 bibs for £2. When I got home I could have kicked myself for not getting 2 packs. I would make some but the only fabric that I have suitable is in pink.
I have a Lego City Advent Calendar, from Francesca, I have made it up to date but am finding it very fiddly.
Fran has asked for a fabric container to put on her desk at work, she will fill it with sweets. She also wants one for her bedside table, so as the Christmas fabric was out I ran these up.
Then changed my mind and made 2 more, different fabric and gold ribbon, of course I wrapped and posted them without taking a photo. I may make another couple for myself later.
The postie has been beating a path to my door, I bought a few things on-line and Francesca has had all her gifts delivered here, I am hoping that there is not too much more to come. I am rapidly running out of room.
I have been told in no uncertain terms that I am not allowed to buy anything for myself till the January sales.
I will fill a stocking for Francesca and one for Ben filled with treats and toys, Fran loves her stocking as much as the big gifts, she will be opening it on my bed as soon as her eyes open. The one day of the year when she is up and awake early, willingly.
Now it is time for a brew, I couldn't spit a sixpence if my life depended on it.
