Last week I shared my normal crafting table, covered in Christmas presents about to be wrapped, and the arm of my chair. This week, it is just the table and it is STILL covered in stuff to be wrapped. Seriously I don't mind it but I wish I could just pull down another table on top so I can carry on crafting for a bit! I am going to finish it all tonight, absolutely, because I am now 7 days behind on Journal Your Christmas and I HATE that. It is supposed to be about finding little slots of time to relish the season and that is what I should be doing. Instead I have been mopping up sick (my little man), distributing inhalers (my baby girl), attending solicitors appointments (my Dad and the probate saga), soothing worries (my brother), soothing worries (my niece but not in relation to her Father), and spending a LOT of wasted time at the parcel depot. I made 4 attempts, the final one took 45 minutes and I refused to leave without my precious parcel. It was a Santa Sack from October Afternoon and it was worth the wait. You can just see some of the fabulous contents on the table there, calling my name, saying use me now!
Of course, while I was out getting that parcel, my Christmas present to myself another pizza box, choc full of sale stuff) was attempting to be delivered so guess where I am going on the way home from the school run later.... *sigh* I hate wasting time more than anything, especially when I hear of people for whom time has run out suddenly, like dear Sarah Lawrence, a fellow blogger and crafter, who never got to share all her many ideas and skills as she wanted. I feel proud to be part of the blogging community with the kindness and compassion and the sharing of ideas that goes on around the world and I love being part of WOYWW. Why don't you join in too? Share your space, wherever it may be, whatever it is that you do, and link up with other like minded people on Julia's Blog.
17 sleeps till Christmas... how are your preparations coming along?
Bye for now
