WOYWW - the Christmas edition!

Well, here we are - is everyone ready now? I have my presents wrapped and waiting delivery, the cards all went a week ago and hopefully aren't stuck in a snow drift somewhere! 

So it's the last WOYWW before Christmas - and I haven't tidied up the Christmas stamps yet - but they are clean Julia.....!!!
 Hopefully I will get time to put them away before I go to Mum's - which isn't till Friday morning. I was hoping to go Thursday afternoon (we finish at lunchtime) but I will have too much to do here, and if the weather/trains are stil dodgy I don't want to risk getting stuck halfway in the dark (even by train!)
This pile also needs tidying up - bits of leftovers and little bits of paper that probably won't be usable but just might!  And the crafters best friend - paper towel!
And this is the work, work desk on Tuesday morning (I took the camera in case I could see anything of the lunar eclipse but it was too cloudy). We are meant to be moving offices this week but it probably won't happen now till after the holiday - hence the large tower of boxes in the edge of the shot, waiting to be filled.
This was taken about 7.30, I am always first in (surprise, surprise, at that time!) and it's only a traffic thing that I go so early, I don't start till 9..... I only loaded the spreadsheet for show, I blog hop and read the paper till anyone else gets in....

I hope you all have a very happy Christmas and get to where you are meant to be for the holidays, (and home again!! and I will see you all next time - though I may not be home in time to be here next Wednesday.
Thanks for all your comments and support this year, it's been great fun getting to "know" you all on these blog hops each week - here's wishing everyone a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
Love and hugs, "H"!

What a productive looking desk you have there. Maybe mine will be like that again once I get sorted out in my new room. My desk is already not as tidy as it was when I took my photos last night, but I do have another two sets of elctric sockets so I can use anything anywhere in there. Luxury!!
Hope your journey is better than you fear. Travel safely, take enough food, hot drinks, clothing, and other snow emergency supplies, just in case.

Happy Christmas
