Out with the old .........................

It's very nearly the end of 2007 - how quick as this year gone?????? It will soon be 2008 and everything will start all over again. Spending a quiet night in, P working so it's just me and the cat. Settling down to watch Bones and eat chocolates - what better way to bring in the new year.

I've still got the cold but it's better than it was so I'll survive! Cooking New Year dinner tomorrow of 8 of us so that will be fun!?!?!

Planning to make a wee calendar using my new bind it all and some tabbed index cards. Had planned to get it done today but been busy tidy, cleaning, blah, blah, blah. People not coming here until about 2ish tomorrow so I might get a chance to get it done early in the morning. Don't have a calendar so really need to make one!

Here are the two christmas presents I made with my new bia!

Christmas has now gone and it passed in lots of coughs, sniffles and feeling like I'd been hit by a ten ton truck. Feeling slightly better today and I've been outside, managed to venture to the shops briefly.

Got some fab christmas pressies, a fab bind-it-all, some funky new beads, Calvin Klein perfume, a mini tripod for my camera and loads of other stuff. And I've still got some more to get.

Next big task (other than the dreaded houseworks!) is cookng for 8 on New Years Day. Need to get the food shopping done and need to borrow a pie dish, imagine telling everyone your cooking steak pie and then realising you don't have a pie dish!?!?!?!?

Oh well, need to go and veg out in front of the telly!

3 more sleeps!!!

I can't believe it's christmas so soon. I'm still not sure if I'm organised or not!?!?! But I've had two nights out, out of three so one to go and then I can lay about all day tomorrow, yippee!!! Well say lay about, I've still to make two christmas presents. I've still to wrap two presents to give them to their receipents today.

Had an excellent night out on Thursday, Wildhearts at the Carling Academy. They were superb, wasn't sure how it would be in a bigger venue than the Garage, but they were on top form as usual. AND they played 'Destroy all Monsters' so I was a happy, happy bunny :)

Well going bead shopping today, so need to go and look out my birthday voucher so I can treat myself.

Feeling festive :)

The christmas decorations are finally up, the cards are all made (although I forgot to take pictures before I wrote them and sealed the envelopes - doh!) and all my presents are just about bought - yay!!! Only got a few little things to get.

Had my first night out on Friday and it was a really good laugh. Had our team lunch at Osta's in Stirling and then stayed out the rest of the day. Came back into Alloa about 8pm ish and met up with some more people from work, eventually got home at 1am after Pete came to met me in the pub!!! Was very tired yesterday. lol

Still got a couple of christmas presents to make mind you, so I need to get cracking on those.

Hoping that it will be a fairly quiet week work wise cos I've got 3 nights out at the end of the week :) Thursday is the Wildhearts at Academy - I'm soooooo excited. Friday is Town Hall so I'll be out from 5.30pm and Saturday is our couples night out which will be a scream. Next Sunday will be for sleeping only!

Look at what I've found - this must have been taken about 15 years ago - scary! But festive :)

Times flies ......................

It's been 3 weeks since I last posted ................. I'm sure there is a time fairy stealing all the hours of the day!!!!!

I've been making christmas cards and not much else these days, well no, not strictly true, 2 sets of ATCs, a CJ entry. And I've got another CJ entry to get done and posted off by Saturday (must remember to do this!?!?!)

Look at what I bought today .........................

I love these, they are SO hideously gorgeous :) Definitely a case of love them or loathe them but I don't care if no-one likes them, I LOVE THEM!!!!!!!!
