Back to work

Well I went back to work this afternoon. I am so tired after all the celebrating We had all  the extended  family round on Christmas day. My eldest daughter called round to drop presents off and open hers. She wanted to spend Christmas with her partner and make her own dinner for them, as it was there first Christmas in there new home.

I have joined a challenge I want to de clutter the spare room. This room is going to be my craft room, so I must, must, must de clutter it.
  • I want to empty my freezer and my cupboards I really don't need to shop until at least March 2013 I have a food mountain in that kitchen
  • I am going to put one of these
  in my sealed pot every day along with all my other loose change. I did that last year and managed to save quite a bit.
  • I want to start crafting again. I kind of stopped when I had an operation on my hand and got out of the habit. I have lots of half finished projects to complete.
  • I want to do more of this

  • Photobucket

     To this

    And this 



I am going to try and find more of these


And turn them into this

I am sure I have more goals I am going to jot them down as I think of them. And then post them on here, that should keep me motivated!

Have you got any goals for 2013?

Finished Work

Finished Work

Well that's work finished until Thursday..... I went in yesterday and walked into a mountain of food and presents, all had been donated by local churches, and charities working with the homeless.

It took us all day to sort through it all and give it out to the families who will be accommodated  with us over the Holidays.

We have kept some back in case we have an emergency.
It still amazes me how generous people are. I should have took photos because really you can't imagine how much had been delivered to us .

We had just finished. And sat down to a cup of tea when the door bell  went and MORE  TOYS   arrived.

The children were very excited seeing all these presents wrapped up and getting delivered to there flats..
We had to tell them them Santa could only get in reception. They seemed to believe us.!!

And the look on there little faces was worth all the back breaking sorting and parceling.....

      Merry Christmas to all my blogging friends!!
