WOYWW 134 - Over already!

Hi, everyone! Hope you had a lovely Christmas. I did, with my brother and his family and it was noisy and busy and just what we needed.  Thanks R&L for inviting me, it was great.

I don't really have a workdesk to share today because today I will be going with my brother down to Mum's house to tackle some more clearing and decorating whilst we have some time off work.

Their tree (I don't have space for one!) surrounded by some of the presents...
and my goodie box from Lin at LB Crafts closing down sale, that I did keep for the day to open  - a great selection of things and great fun not knowing what was in it!
Not sure when I will get to visit you this week, won't have access to a computer whilst we're away decorating, so if I don't catch you before, Happy 2012!!

Ann B told me about those boxes so we both got one and we both saved them for the big day. It was fun opening them wasn't it?
Glad you had a lovely Christmas with the family, just what was needed wasn't it? Hope today with its sorting out does not sadden you too much, I'll be thinking of you.
Afraid mine is a sad post this week and now I wonder if I should just have left it alone. Anyway, I wish you a year ahead full of happiness and joy. Hugs, Neet #4 xxx

I'm just doing a quick blog hop round as many of my friends as I can before the family calls. I've offered to have the twins today so may not have a lot of spare time later. Think they need all the help they can get at the mo....both Mum and Dad are poorly now :-(
Hugs to all,

Beautiful tree, a box full of goodies, what more would a girl want, Happy 2012, Hugs May x x x x

Ann B said...

As Neet said earlier, I got one of those boxes as well and I was good and it stayed wrapped up until Christmas morning. Well actually it was at my sisters as 'her' present to me so I didn't have a lot of choice in the matter. Loved opening my surprise and all the things in it and I can see some in your box that were in mine as well.
Enjoy the rest of the holiday Helen and a happy 2012 to you.

What a great box of goodies to cheer you up. Glad things went well with the family over Christmas, a potentially hard time for you. Hope the clearing is not as difficult as ours was, there just seemed to be so much that we felt guilty about parting with. Good luck! Maggie #49
