WOYWW 290 - It's Christmaaaaaasssssssss

So, the cards have been delivered, the presents have been wrapped,  the food has been bought - or, I'll be at the supermarket buying the fresh stuff that needs to be done last minute (depending on when you're visiting)...  so sit back and enjoy a very  festive What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday... 
Julia likes us to keep it short. so I'll try!
 had to move into the hallway for the weekend present wrapping...
 made some wallet-y type things for some monetary presents...

 tied them up with ribbons
 and a special card for my brother and sister-in-law (hope they're not looking, as not sure when they'll be getting this)
and another pile of goodies for me again!  the stars from the card above, are the die here in the picture.







Oops, and there's more...












I'll leave you with this photo I took on Sunday in London (more here) -



So, that's me - it just leaves me to say, Happy Christmas - may your crackers crack and your turkey be perfect (I'm having roast beef though!)

See you all soon.

I love your cards and wrappings. Also all those lovely goodies. But most of all I enjoyed your virtual tour around London in the twilight. I watched it twice as when I finished ooing and aahing, my hubby wanted to know what the fuss was about and we watched the photos again.
Great that they are doing Paddington this year. Are there many around London? They used to do this in Bristol. We've had gorillas, cows and pigs (at least those were the ones I remember).
Happy Christmas!

Glad I caught up with this festive post - all the cards and gifts look fantastic, as does your pile of goodies! And a great photo of St Paul's too... where on earth are you standing?!

Roast beef sounds great - we have Wienerschnitzel as our festive meal, but it all had to be delayed thanks to a horrific bout of Norovirus - less said, the better!
