~*~ FQ's Friday Girls Christmas Lunch ~*~

The lunch, with a visit from Santa, had been arranged for weeks but at the last minute, I thought I was going to miss the fun.

I had to get a plumber in 'cos the downstairs loo was blocked and leaking all over the bathroom floor - nice!! The only time he could come was between 10 and 12 yesterday. Anyway, he arrived on time and fixed the problem, and after driving like a mad thing I made it to the lunch and sewing afterwards.

The others had big meals but there was just enough time for me to have a scone and mince pie.

The secret Santa was great fun and I did really well- a Betty's bag, a gorgeous cupcake deckie and some beautiful Caroline Zoob notelets.

Dawn also gave me a cute little box which contained some tiny, handknitted mittens to go on the tree.

~*~Happy 15th Birthday Verity ~*~

Monday was Verity's birthday.She had a lovely weekend, a small party, visiting her dad, going to a Maximo Park concert and a pile of lovely prezzies from family and friends.

The Christmas tree was put together over the weekend and is not yet leaning at a precarious angle.The mantlepiece has still to be decorated.

I have spent the morning wrapping presents and finishing off a few projects.
