Getting ready for Christmas

Yes! Christmas 🎄

Soon comes round and here it is looming again ! I am looking forward this year our grandson joes three now and knows all about Christmas so very excited. Even organised with some pressies normally a last minuet person.  Go me !

Every year I make Christmas Sockmonkeys but mainly to order this years different. I will be making some small ones just to sell already bought the socks. Going to be cute starting them this week hopefully. So watch my Facebook page for them. Only doing a few !

Gingernut from last year

So much to do ! Tidying the craft room to make space for production it’s only small so can’t swing a cat never mind a monkey. Funny when I first decorated and made it mine I thought how much room I had, But I soon filled it with crafty things now I can’t move. So today’s action was getting organised.

Packing

I would like some space under the table when sewing would be nice. Filled with boxes for posting, display stuff etc … So may have to go in the loft when the Christmas tree comes out. I haven’t done any craft fairs for a long time. But you never know so I will keep hold of them for a bit longer just in case.

One of my craft fairs

Have thousands of beads so a big task of sorting through them as I now make monkeys. I still have my eBay so be selling them and lots of other things I have, some new. That’s a job in its self but has got to go ! Out with the old in with the new. Some of my socks will be going to ones I can’t use. I will share on Facebook if interested.

Doodle

so hopefully be lots of room for my handmade monkeys. I am working out a better way to take pictures. I normally use my iPad because it’s Easy !  I do have a good camera and be taking some christmas pics. Also not decided what pictures I am useing for my calendar this year need to get that done so lots to do! Before Christmas let’s hope I get it done. I will be doing a blog about taking pictures so please keep watching .

Lazy days and sundays

Lazy days

Hello you ever need a lazy day to think reflect have fun or just sit on the sofa with your pjs on. Today was that day ! Yes I did wash and clean my teeth made the bed like I do every day. Our grandson joe who’s three stayed on Saturday night. So as you can imagin we didn’t get a lot of sleep Love him so much he’s special. So today we sat on the sofa hooray.

Watching telly , watching you tube, looking on Facebook. Doing some picture changing on my web site, genrally not doing much. I did manage to make a reflecter out of cardboard ready for Monday  to take photos. I take far to much room up to take photos so my first job tomorrow is changing things round making some space.

Normally if I’m sitting here I manage to do some sewing. But when I decorated now have all the lamps at the other side of the room . I do have a little clip on light but not really a good enough light. The main light when on is like being on a sun bed it’s that bright. So no sewing today!

Got my favourite pjs on beauty and the beast ones from Avon. Just love the new film. Avon do some lovely pjs have collected a few. Always buy some at Christmas nice having new ones Christmas Eve. Making me think about Christmas now warm mince pies and cream yummy. Christmas tree will be going up soon not sure traditional is going to match may have to get new decorations in white this year. I wrote about my diy projects in previous blogs.

Hubbies an angel he went out and bought a meal deal from Tesco for £10 what a bargain included a bottle of wine. Potato dauphinois, Chicken  Cabernet Sauvignon wine,followed by cheese cake yummy. Made my day! Done in 25 mins. Lovely couple of glasses of wine made a change happy days. So still sat here and wrote my lazy day story down.

Cheers

thanks for reading

Focus

Focus

Not a thing I can do these days.  I know what I want to do ! But not quite reaching my goal. Did I have one to start with that’s a question ? So many things got in the way block your thoughts stop you being who you want to be. Hard work is what you need to do stop playing get on with it mmmmm. I have devoted a lot of years what for ? Learned a lot could write a book ! If I could focus long enough who knows. Taking me an age to do anything my hands don’t move as quick but my brain is willing . How can I focus when there’s a mist blocking my view. Have I given up ! Did I wake up one day and say I give up. No perhaps I am looking at things different than I have before and not seeing the end result. Why I ask has it gone away when my enthusiasm was oosing from my sole. Every second of the day ideas and motivation filled my life. Perhaps I’m distracted and need time to reflect taking more time off than working is this the answer? If you can’t focus you can’t work. Writing this down is it helping I must think ! Positive. So much negativity in this world affecting our thoughts. Is it this stopping the focus maybe not just that ! We are taken over with just living our lives getting involved in other people’s lives and upsets . Trying to help when you can’t  help your self because you can’t focus. Noises in your ears saying no don’t do it ! Time for yourself . Wanting to tell them This is my time I have done all that and bought the tshirt. Perhaps it’s time to focus on the important things in life keeping healthy and looking after your self and you’re loved ones. Perhaps who knows  the focus on everything else will come back . Well as long as everyone else is focused on what they are doing ! Maybe I’m better at helping other people to focus thanks for reading .
