WOYWW 342

well, ready or not, the big day is just around the corner... Christmas isn't far off either.  Till then it's time for another WOYWW at Julia's Stamping Ground.. show and tell time!
So my craft space on the floor looks like this today..
 Christmas is waiting to be delivered...!
 the office "do" last week was wonderful, we went to dinner at 45, the restaurant attached to Fortnum and Mason's at, appropriately, 45 Jermyn Street in London.

Had to "borrow" a dessert menu... I had the chocolate bomb... it was dramatic and delicious  (one of those where they pour a sauce over the chocolate shell, at the table and the chocolate melts)... tasted yummy too!

If I could work out how to copy photos from my twitter timeline to here, I could add a photo but .... if you check @stampingbyh on twitter you may be able to scroll back far enough in my profile to find the photos!
the back (or front?) of the dessert menu







So, that's me sort of ready for Christmas.. the replacement computer is meant to be being despatched tonight or tomorrow - which could be a problem as we may not be at work for the whole of Thursday.. hey ho!!


I'll leave you with a glimpse of the Christmas card I'm giving my brother and sister-in-law (hoping they won't have time to read this before the day!)

I have since, coloured the stars with a gold gel pen, but forgot to photograph it again... 
Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas, and see you (and your desks) soon!

Good morning. I'm doing a quick whizz round all my fav blogs before hitting the supermarket for the last minute shop.
I would just like to wish you a very happy Christmas and hope that 2016 comes with all you wish for yourself.
Big hugs,
Annie x #16

Yikes, I knew the work do would be lovely, but dinner at 45...how absolutely lovely! Richly deserved treat if you ask me! Christmas waiting to be delivered is a good situation to be in. I've done that, but now am at the hoover and tidy stage...which makes me reluctant, because with all of them at home, it doesn't stay tidy for long...and they take up so much room!

It sounds like you had a wonderful night and the food ..... thanks for sharing the important part of the Menu - I have been known to walk out of a restaurant if the dessert menu contains nothing I fancy, let alone like!!!
Have a wonderful Christmas

Hello Helen. Great photos of all your happenings this week! What a busy lady you are - it's great.
Thanks for your visit and your comments. John is coming home tomorrow - with a palliative care package in place and Oxygen. Our Christmas will be very different - but extremely precious.
Take care. God bless.

Well that sounds a very upmarket office do - I'm even a little bit envious! Love the sparkly doodly card, those white fronds look like Jack Frost's icy fingers. Wishing you a peaceful and joyous festive season!
