Merry Christmas to you all

I can't believe I've not posted in over a fortnight
Lots of water under the bridge
Christmas preparations a plenty
Mum and Dad have been down, viewed the flat, decided they'd love to live in it and so it's all systems go, once it's finally empty between Christmas and New Year, with carpet fitting and re-decorating ready for their move during February half term. Nigel is still playing 'Super-Hero' getting everything sorted for them.
Sarah's thumb is healing beautifully and she had her cast off last Friday - it will be another few weeks until she's up to rugby playing fitness but the best news is she will still get the chance to trial for both the Regional and England Colleges squads.
Nick has finished school and football for this year and along with his little sister, who is still valiantly practising her violin, is ready for the excitement that is Christmas
As for me - I finally completed any pre-Christmas stitching needed yesterday - the shopping's all done, virtually all the presents are wrapped (most unusual for me who usually spends Christmas Eve in a muttering, grumbling heap of wrapping paper) and we're almost there
I've received a couple of lovely quilts I will show you after Christmas along with two separate Secret Santa gifts which are nestling under the tree until tomorrow - I can save things until the day! - and only have two birthday blocks still owing - Sorry Margaret and Terri, I will get them to you asap - so I'm starting to feel more on top of things
Then it just remains for me to wish all of you, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, a happy, peaceful and love-filled time.

Anne all the best over Christmas/New Year. Hope you get some well-deserved rest! I was again admiring my 'winter' quilt you made for me for 4SDQS and I just love it. Looking forward to more quilty blogging in 2009!

Good luck with sorting out your parents accommodation. Nigel is indeed a wonderful husband. Hope it all goes well.

Thank you sooo much for my secret santa gifts. I waited until Christmas night to open. Then you didnt include anything with your name so I had no idea. LOL Donna let me know yesterday. I love my table runner, the candy, the needle holders and the other cute little fabric pocket you made. Thanks again for being my secret santa.
