Well, our tree is up. There are also a few presents under the tree, not allowed to put decorations up and no cards to write so that means we should have a relatively stress-free Christmas. I do not have to go into the crowded shops which does stress me out. I am prepared this year, as of course I have been off sick.
I am looking forward to week 2 and it is my birthday Thursday. Just a quiet evening in with hubby after three evenings out. Monday night is crochet club, Tuesday I am going out for a meal for the housing association with which I volunteer and it is on them and then Wednesday I am going to slimming world and hope to have lost a little.
In the meantime, as you are aware I participated in an advent swap and we had to make, buy or thrift 24 presents to give with a larger one for the 25th December. It really helped me focus when I was having a hard time. As my partner and I agreed a fairly low (but reasonable budget) it was a challenge and I enjoyed it.
Here is what my swap sent me a quilling set:
I bought her:
Have a good week all!
