Yes, I like your idea re the décor as well, JcKitty.
When I ran the womens auxillary I used to have a Take It Or leave it table each month, people loved it. Leftovers wetn straight to a charity shop .
SO TIRED , having spent the evening preparing kits for the scandi hearts for Craft Club. Now, it may well be that I am a moron, but I watched a gazillion YOUTUBE videos on how to make the dratted things and I can only describthe experience as PURGATORY.
SO what my group are going to make of it, heaven only knows. Hence the kits as they wouldn't stand a chance making them from scratch.
Note to self, never again think " oh, THAT looks cute and easy" and commit myself
Knackered re work. All the kids wearing FITBITS were at pains to tell us how far we had made them walk for a school " trip". It was a long walk , granted. Lots of quibbling and whittering as everyone is tired.
EG. I was castigated for arranging to have the wrong child sent home ill ???? I was rightly annoyed by that............yes, I had brought child x to the office/spoken o the head and had it agreed she went home but the office rang the wrong parent.
Said parent rocked up to collect her sick child ............." Heres Lilly ( not her name of course ) and Mum responds that she does indeed have a child call Lilly but NOT THAT CHILD.
I have just told DH I'm too tired to go to bed
Not a late night tomorrow at least. I do have Craft Club .....which promises to be Hell on Wheels making these things " you can use them as a gift basket !" ( IN YOUR DREAMS !!!!) Probably soup for dinner.
Need to check arrangements for DS and keep up with housework so the weekend is free and clear.
Its been No Spend all week as I hoped, yay, a WIN.
Mackie, I loved your little Christmas spending plan. Utterly no stress, good for you but fun buying some kiddie pressies AND charity giving too. Well done you !
