Thank You cards and

.........a Very Happy New Year!

It's going to be a strange one in our house. For the first time in about 5 years DH is working and I'm not going with him. He has always worked at a local hotel on NYE and we've made a night of it and booked a room. This year he is working at a golf club about 20 miles away so I decided not to go. It's a good job really as I smacked myself in the mouth with a spoon on Christmas Eve and on Christmas day my front tooth fell out!! It's a crown which had worked it's way loose. I'm having two roots removed under sedation so had a dentist appointment on Monday where they decided that they would fit me with a false one while they have me in the chair. My appointment for the work is 13th January and I am not really looking forward to it but hopefully I won't be aware of what they are doing to me. I'm talking to everyone at the mo with my hand over my mouth and won't leave the house LOL We did nip to the Range the other day but I just kept my mouth shut.......I think the assistant thought I was really rude until DH told him that I'd lost my voice ;))

Christmas has been strange this year too......I haven't felt in the least bit Christmassy :( It was lovely having my family together on Christmas day if not hard work :) We always used to share Christmas and my sister, mum and myself took it in turns to host but this was the first time we had been together for about 15 years! Even then it wasn't all of us as my sister and her family stayed at home, which is just as well really as I think we would've had to set the tables up in the garden!! LOL Christmas has also been overshadowed by the deaths we had in the run up. We have Auntie's funeral on Friday and I am dreading it.

Anyway onto a brighter note. Yesterday was 'Thank You card day' as I had a few to make. I haven't used any sketches or anything and just made very quick and simple cards the same as the following two. The last one is for a special person who did me a huge favour just before Christmas!
Now the 'To Do List' looks something like this :)
a gardeners year book for my mum
cd clock for DS's best friend (no rush because he's a JW and doesn't celebrate Christmas so will give it to him next week)
5 forum birthday cards done
Debbi Moore samples from new kit in progress
DD1's wedding invitations started
gut my craft room in progress
I'm now off to shrink my list even further, take care and TFL xx
