Hi all.....are you all plum tuckered out yet? Is it getting all too much for you?
Well, take heart. We're all in the same boat and paddling like mad to get everything done for the "big day"
Me? Well my big day is tomorrow, when all the family and kids and littlies descend on Number 10 for a big Chrissy bash.
A week or so ago I was wandering around the big wide web, catching up on blog posts etc. and discovered this
... and on further searching, found this as well. So I thought I'd make a couple for the kidlets....you know, them wanting to be fairy ballerinas and all.
So that's how I've been spending my time. Making tulle tutus for the Princesses. Next time though, if there is a next time, I think I'll read the instructions PROPERLY and get the soft tulle rather than the stiff one, as it was a little hard to work with and could turn out to be a bit "scratchy". I'm sure they'll love them though...and their new magic wands.
Amazing what you can do with an old discarded venetian blind rod, a Chrissy star decoration and a hot glue gun!
I've also been doing a bit of cooking for tomorrow night. I've made, what I hope, will be a delicious pork and chicken terrine that also contains pistachio nuts and cranberries. As soon as it's ready to eat, I'll take some photos and post it over at Live, Laugh Live and Cook. Fingers crossed it works out OK
Have a good Friday and weekend...Tonight MONT and I are heading out for Chrissy drinks again...gotta love this time of year. It's the only time we really get out and socialise!
