Paper Stories blog Sketch Challenge

I've decided to enter this layout I did of my daughter Emily( the short one !) and her friend Hannah ( the tall one !) when we visited the Harry Potter Studio Tour in July...............they love Dobbie the house Elf.......into the  December sketch challenge. I very rarely enter challenges but thought I'd have a go this time.

My baby is 18 today.....

Yes Emily is 18 today, I just don't know where those years have gone. Here's a photo I took of her during the summer..................she'll have a shock instore when they go to football this afternoon as this pic should be in the Fan Zone section in the programme( her and Andy have season tickets at Ipswich Town FC). This evening she'll be out bowling with about 30 Gang Show members and then several are off clubbing! Told her she has a 9pm curfew, to which she laughed!! She's a mix of her two brothers Aaron and Tim.....will be a party animal like Aaron and is laid back like Tim, so laid back she's almost horizontal.
Well Christmas is almost here. I've now caught up, all cards done last lot being delivered today, presents are wrapped. I can now sit back and wait for the big day to arrive, so on that score I'll wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

Thursday, 13 December 2012 humbug!

Well yesterday Andy and I did our yearly trip to Lakeside to do our Christmas Shopping, we got all bar 3 presents. I've just been online and can pick two of them up tomorrow from Argos this way. I managed to drag him into Ikea, oh how painful we were only in there less than 20 minutes but he moaned non stop! I've now got loads to wrap, picture of what we came home with and I've another lot in the cupboard. I'm still writing Christmas cards which I must finish today so I'll take them to work with me tonight. My tree is up, I did that last week as I knew this week would be a no go.
Hasn't it turned cold? I intend going no where today until I go to work tonight. I've the ironing to do so I shall watch the weather through the patio doors.
Papermaze Christmas crop on Saturday really looking forward to that.

Gus and his advent calendar!

Our cat Gus love the cat treat Dreamies, shake the packet and he goes like a rocket! Have you seen the advert on TV, yes that does it to him. He has radar ears even when you only pick the packet up.......anyway shopping in Asda we found a Dreamies advent calendar so we just had to buy Gus one. Well yesterday he had door No 1 contents which he gobbled up in record time and the look on his face when they had gone. Today I took pictures of him with door No 2 and here they are.......................the kids reckon the cat is spoilt.
How are your Christmas arrangements going? Mine well I'm only now starting. Later I hope to start writing my Christmas cards so I can get those that need posting, posted this week. Christmas shopping we'll be off to Lakeside next week. Got two works Christmas meals coming up, Andy's this coming Friday and mine next Monday. If I can get Christmas wrapped up by next Friday( I mean by having all the pressies wrapped!) I'll be happy.

Well have a great week..............Bramford Christmas crop on Saturday.
