Hi everyone :)
Sometimes you have a really good day because of all the unexpected things that happen… and yesterday was one of those days. I’d planned on making quite a few Christmas cards, getting some washing done and maybe starting on the gingerbread house.
What actually happened was that ‘50 Shades’ kept side-tracking me and I made a card in between chapters. The day ran along quite smoothly with me making cards and reading… and Toby cuddling up in spite of the humidness of the day.
By the end of the day I’d made a total of five cards, finished the first book in the trilogy and started on the second book… not quite as productive as one would have hoped for… but good all the same!
While I was making my cards Dougal was taking a LOT of interest… not so much in the card making… it was the sparkly silver ribbon that had caught his magpie eyes!
I had gone into the kitchen to make myself a very late lunch… can you even call it lunch when the clock reads 4.30pm? Next thing you know Toby is going absolutely mental… barking and jumping and then he came into the kitchen to tell me what was wrong… all I made out was ‘Dougal’ and ‘ribbon’.
I don’t know if it was ‘brotherly love’ or ‘tattling’ but it turns out that the call of the sparkles had become too much of a temptation for Dougal and he’d gotten himself into a terrible tangle! 3 metres of sparkly ribbon can go a very long way!
I had to put him on the sofa to get him untangled and Toby was watching the entire time… again… was it ‘brotherly love’ or ‘gloating with glee’ that kept him engaged in what was happening?
So in spite of all my plans I actually do have five cards made… and the sparkly ribbon is now safely put away for another project! The sun is shining so the washing might just happen today… and I have all the ingredients I need to make a gingerbread house so there may even be some baking done today.
I hope you are all enjoying the last Saturday before Christmas… it’s not long to go now! xx
