I am happy to say that I have achieved October's mission and had a lot of fun along the way which was the whole point of it really.... for me to enjoy Christmas preparations again!!
So we all made a pile of cards together at the beginning of the month and they lie stamped and addressed ready to go in December.
I have purchased and wrapped all of my gifts, labelled and some parcelled up ready to go to their recipients.
My beloved brother and sister-in-law's gifts are somewhere on the ocean on their way to Cold Lake in Canada. I love what I have got for them.... more catering for Lorri that John but hey ho!!
There was a rolling programme of pudding making one day when lots of people came to make theirs too!
And after my poor unfortunate cake accidentally got incinerated, a good friend offered to make a replacement!
I sent ideas e-mails to people that asked for them.
And just Christmas to wait for and enjoy now!!
