Well we had some more snow last night, so we woke up to a blanket of white! In fact we walked home from friends last night after midnight in it!! Barney enjoyed his walk this morning in his coat, the frost heightens all the smells! I did not realise my December Daily would be so full of snowy pictures!! I took some when the first flurries started on Thursday in case that was all we got, now those pages look daft compared to what we have now!
Today has been a relaxing day, with both boys out at work. I have a nice piece of roast beef in the oven for Sunday tea and I have done some last minute loads of washing - changing all the beds and towels. I have just been making a large Lasagne for lunch on Wednesday on DS1's birthday, as all the grandparents are coming for lunch. I need to do my last minute supermarket shop tomorrow for all the fresh stuff I want. I have some family and friends entertaining planned, but the actual Christmas lunch is not my job this year, my sister is cooking, we do it alternate years. Just been printing out some Christmas recipes from the Internet, for Cinnamon pecan buns and St Stephen's day muffins. I feel like cooking and not crafting at the moment! I need to search out a Christmas jigsaw - that will have to be a page in my December daily! TFLx

Unhappy bunny - someone has claimed back the cash I was paid for an e bay sale back in October! I sold a pair of DS2 designer jeans that had been hardly worn and sadly outgrown all too quickly! The lady received them and left feedback, apparently she has had a few problems with her Paypal subsequently and her bank have claimed back all of her Paypal transactions, even those that are legitimate! I know it's only £10 but it has taken me into negative funds with Paypal as I spend all my eBay earn money on stash of course!! They are cross and want me to rectify the situation!! So be warned! Paypals can be reversed, through no fault of your own! What is more her bank are not being helpful about getting it back to me!! Paypal have the whole thing frozen! What a mess! In the mean time I have to "rectify my negative balance!" Great! Whilst they investigate! Fortunately I have been able to fax the proof of postage, which I still have to show the goods were sent! Sometimes recycling goods is such hard work!! It's me who is suffering and I did not even do anything! Ok, rant over!! A little light crafting is required!! Lol! TFLx

Barney is spoiled in our house and has a cloth on the end of everyone's bed so that he can choose who he wants to spend time with in the evenings! Look what happens when you wash the cloths, tumble dry them and then 'chuck' them on the stairs to go up when they are still nice and warm!!! Awwwwww! Comfy??? So sweet!

The First Noel
The first Noel Sue Bubbles did say,
was to certain ‘do crafters’ - “A sale’s on its way!”
A sale for paper, buttons and dies,
a sale where you wont believe your eyes!
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Visit the ‘Crafts U Love’ Christmas sale!
They looked it up and saw one more sale,
and also there was free p&p in the mail.
They filled their bags with goods galore,
and low and behold they kept adding more!
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Visit the ‘Cutting Edge Crafts’ Christmas sale!
Then came along, QVC crafting day,
yet more yummy goodies were winging their way,
To her ‘poor’ buddies houses all over town,
crafters greeted the Postman in their dressing gown
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Where can we hide stash from the Christmas sales??!
The "Selfish" Christmas Alphabet!!
C is for the Cricut sitting under the Xmas tree,
H is for the happiness it’s going to bring to me!
R is for the red - we will be in at the bank!
I is for ignorance, with only me to thank
S is for the stash shopping, I’m going to buy for me,
T is for the toys, there was never going to be
M is for myself, “It didn’t cost a lot!!!”
A is for the attitude, my family have got
S is for the shock, my husband’s going to get,
I don’t care and I’m getting everything in my Christmas alphabet! TFLx

Last night we wrote the 'bought' Christmas cards, (dare I say that???) so today, I really need to finish the hand made ones! You may think it is early, but with hubby's birthday next weekend, my sisters the week after, and DS1's the week after that, we like to get these out of the way early so we can carry on focusing on birthdays!!! TFLx
P.S. You will be please to here, I bagged a Studio Calico add on! Not so pleased that my stash delivery of last month's kit still did not arrive yesterday!! Bought a new bedroom TV though!!
