It's beginning to look a lot like...

I am better, hoorah!  Thank you so much for all your get well wishes, they worked, after  a week of feeling rough I am now back to fighting fit and trying to catch up with work and Christmassy stuff.  I am feeling fairly organised and am no longer panicking but there is still much to do. For example I haven't written a single Christmas card to anyone in the UK nor have I  wrapped any presents, but it will be done, it always is, and a bit of adrenalin at the last minute always spurs me on!

We have been enjoying decorating this year though, as  the past 2 years pre Christmas period were rather fraught for us and the decorating  was done in a rush. Last year was this.  Oh and that TV stuff,?  That was Kirsty's Homemade Home. It didn't come off (thank goodness, the thought of being on TV made me feel sick). I sent them down to Cowslip Workshops for their textile fix.

The year before was this.  The decoration were put up at the end of November, when the children were at school and so they had no involvement.

I tried to take photos of the tree but failed, I shall try again tomorrow in daylight but here is a little collage of our other decorations made into a Christmas card for you all.

Hi Donna

It all looks so wonderful! Your house truly stunning. You have great taste.
The pink & yellow Christmas wallpaper or wrapping is gorgeous.

Hi Donna...so lovely to come over to your blog for a Christmas fix...it just isn't happening here yet...thanks for your comments on my blog - I can totally sympathise now with what you went through during the last two years...as I have the distraction of paintbrushes and power tools taking over this year! Can't wait to stop and have a short rest before the New Year...
Take care and hope you are well now,
