I'm in the mood...

..for Christmas!!
For the first time in weeks I actually feel well and have some energy. It's taken me until now to get into the festive spirit and today, for the first time this year, I feel jolly and Christmassy.
I've spent the day so far tidying and cleaning, and have even enjoyed it (maybe I'm not better after all!). Enjoying the housework has come as a massive shock to me for sure!!
I have just received the last of the five deliveries I had arranged for today as I knew I'd be waiting in for an engineer so I'm also feeling organised and, OK, maybe just a tiny bit smug!
I'd like to share with you the gorgeous decoration I received from the swap organised by the lovely Ladybird Diaries.
Joy, who has a fabulous blog and is a talented crafts person made me this crocheted hanging decoration. As some of you know I love crochet but can't crochet myself so this is perfect for me.
Apparently, Joy made her own sparkly yarn by mixing in shiny thread which I am very impressed by, and couldn't imagine how she'd done it until I saw the picture on her blog, and also how she managed to get a perfect round shape.
Joy also generously sent me a box of chocolates that didn't last long enough to be photographed!
This is what I sent to Joy
I'm off now to catch up with your news and then wrap some presents whilst the casserole for dinner cooks in the oven.
So, this is what it feels like to be organised - amazing!!
How are you doing with your preparations for Christmas?
Thanks for visiting


  1. I'm glad that you are feeling Christmassy! The decorations that you and Joy sent each other are beautiful. I'm not surprised that the chocolates didn't last long, they wouldn't have lasted long here either! xx

  2. The things that you gave and received are so lovely! I am really glad that you enjoyed participating in the swap.
