O come all ye faithful ....

readers of my blog, i have a big confession to make .... my brain must be getting all frazzled with all the Christmas preparations and exciting gifts i'm getting as i actually opened Day 15 today instead of Day 14

I could have rewrapped them and opened the proper day but as i am an honest person i decided to come clean, i do hope Kathy and Jorja don't mind. Jorja has made me 2 padded coasters filled with winter spice scent and Kathy sent a rose scented candle, they both smell wonderful. I have given myself a slap on the wrist for the mistake and will take much more care in future LOL

I can only plead insanity due to excitment as it happened after the postie arrived with an armful of goodies as well - a gift from Sally (sent to santa) thank you Sally. The stitched gift arrived from the US for the secret exchange at JA - put away till 25th. From Lynne (cocokat) i received the most wonderful stitched ornie and 'special friend' kitty for my tree, she also enclosed a little tea bag with instructions (you can read that on the pic if you enlarge it) thank you Lynne, i will treasure these gifts and i love the Snoopy card, Another envelope had the Loopylou chart 'Christmas Wishes' that i won from Jacqui in a contest at TS

Hope you all have a great weekend even though they are predicting very cold weather in the UK. I'll be leaving the shoppers to their panic as i have now finished all the pressie shopping, they are all wrapped and ready for despatch and cards are all sent too. I just need to make a list of the final foodstuffs i need to get .... why am i so organised .... i'm bound to have forgotten something !!!

OK, Julie, I will believe you when you say it was the excitement that made you open the wrong one! Lol! Lovely gifts though:)

Lovely advent gifts. Don't you just love opening them every day? Glad you got the chart ok, but blimey, that was quick! Seems the mail service is on the ball for a change.
