Now Getting Ahead!

Well, my dear friends, I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  DH and I went out for a meal on Friday evening (bang went my pre Christmas diet) as it was my birthday on Thursday, but even though we are now both retired, we still prefer to go out over the weekends (non 'school nights') isn't it funny how old habits die hard?

Anywho, I finally caught up with making our Christmas cards, the decorations are up, not a vast amount as it is just us two - kids grown up and away now - so I am actually trying to get ahead for next year, as this year crept up on me (how it managed to do it so quietly, going by the speed it arrived is beyond me).  Here are the cards I made over the weekend.

These will probably end up sitting alone and waiting until the week before next Christmas before their siblings will join them, as I am always full of good intentions and then my memory lets me down!

Thanks for popping by and leaving me a little love, have a wonderful week!  Hazel xx
