Christmas Journal - 12th December

Guess who has been working again today?  Yep, it was me!  My own fault too :(  I worked last Sunday, so wasn't supposed to be working today but I asked one of the other girls if she could swap shifts with me next Friday in order that the kids and I can attend my Uncle Ian's 60th birthday party which is in Hertfordshire.  Before I knew what I was saying I had volunteered to do her Sunday as a kind of pay back ...  that will teach me to open my mouth before engaging my brain!  Never mind, we are now going to the party and will hopefully see LOADS of my family which doesn't happen all that often (especially with there being no family wedding during 2010!)  It will be difficult to keep up with my journal, but hopefully I will catch up next Sunday, when I will definitely NOT be working ...

So, todays page is all about the lovely evening we shared with our friends Louise and Ian last night!  It wasn't really a take lots of pics do, but as Louise knows about my journal, I managed to get my OH to take this one pic so that I could use it today!

Again, another quite quick page for me (well, we have got last nights Strictly to catch up on after dinner!) - maybe I'm getting the hang of simple?!  I'm loving the little wooden reindeer - a bargain from Tesco, a box of 10 for 99p.  I am a little bit worried that my journal is getting quite full and that my binding rings might not be able to cope ...

  3. Great photo Carole!
    My rings are def. too small for my album - don't know if I've got any bind it all wire big enough either. :( It may have to be ribbon. I'm up to date with mine and did some more embellishing this afternoon - a nice, restful activity.
