My posting seems to be very sporadic at the moment. I wish I had two pairs of hands, and a clearer brain. I start something and go to another room to fetch scissors or whatever, and then see something there I should have done. Etc etc etc. And doing all this with a slightly addled brain does not help. All courtesy of the tablets. The muscles-in-the-eye-tremor is the worst. Just the left eye. And when you are operating a scroll saw doing finicky bits, it becomes a bit of a challenge to retain ownership of all the fingers. So I have ceased and desisted.
And the sewing by hand, or threading the machine.....you can just imagine. Thank heavens for self threaders! Anyway, I have soup on the stove cooking away. I trawled through the fridge and tossed any and all veg into the pot. It smells like winter. You know that hearty food smell? That's the one. So supper is sorted, for a good few days too.
Tomorrow is another 20% off day at M&S, so providing there is no snow to contend with, I will be there at the crack of dawn, to pick up the few last bits I need. I really do not enjoy shopping much. At all. I try to avoid the shops, especially at this time of the year, but I need to start wrapping things, and M&S has them. So far, I have managed to spend very little this year, and have made small things for my friends, and the family too.
This is the way it is supposed to be. Using my time to make some small gifts which my friends will appreciate. I hope! Christmas is not about getting into debt, especially now. Ever, in fact. I think that even if money was not an issue, the home-made gift from our home to another's is still what is preferable. Simple. The focus then is on the true meaning of Christmas, and not on commercialism.
So I must get on with the finishing off of bits now, and then I will show you the results of my creativity! It is freezing around here, and snow is expected to blanket most of the country tomorrow. Perfect weather for staying home and making stuff.
Now where did I put the Christmas CD???
