Sorry being AWOL

Morning Everybody

Sorry about being AWOL for the last couple of days but my migraine got the better of me so stayed away from computer and bright lights.  Feeling much better now just tired, as Sarah and I had the brainwave of doing the shopping for Christmas food plus my usual monthly shop at midnight last night am shattered now, we left home at around 12.15am and got back at 2.15am, poor old Sarah has work today.  I still have a few bits to get but they can wait until later today.

As I was waiting for the shop to open last night decided I would make Nicole's altered bag and two Gift Card Holders which turned out quite well, here they are:

Nicole and Dean's Christmas Bag of Goodies

Made two of these gift card holders
one in gold and one in blue for Jessica and Nicole 

I have quite a bit to do today as I need to get the meat we bought last night into the freezer but stupid me did not buy freezer bags so these are on my list, need to tidy up and strip our bed as I have been lying in it for a couple of days trying to get rid of my headache.  Alan and Sarah will make the bed when they get home tonight as that winter quilt is just too heavy for me to manage. 

I then have to go to the wool shop and buy another ball of wool to finish Jessica's scarf off that I started knitting on Friday and sort out dinner for tonight am thinking shepherds pie which is easy to make and quite filling for my workers when they get home.  

Well am off to do my jobs will be back to try and catch up on everybody when I have finished all my jobs.  Take care.  

Love Alison xxx
