So, what did I get for christmas then??? Lots of lovely goodies in fact, far more than I deserve but they included several CDs, the Beatles film Help! and Disney's Jungle Book on DVD, loads of slipper socks and some VERY cool slipper boots which I will have to take a picture of later because they make me look like a Yeti, some very funky makeup all from my favourite range, Benefit (including a gorgeous make up bag to keep it all in from my sis). And a new guillotine for cutting up all my scrapbook papers from Ed. So I'm very pleased.
I'm in that wierd after christmas mood now where I've still got quite a few days holiday left but noone is really sure what to do with themselves. Its not like the Summer when you go out to enjoy the weather. So I guess I may end up down the high street to spend my xmas money...

Apologies for the poor pictures - I had to scan these because there is never any natural light good enough to take pictures without the flash at the moment, but having only a regular scanner means its difficult to stitch the bits together without getting at least a little bit of the layout cut off! I especially love the first of the layouts, about my cat Alfie who was a christmas present one year and who only lived to be about 18 months. She had a bit of a tragic life, having cat leukaemia from a young age and being sick often, she was then run over outside our house one night. However, she was totally adored and a beautiful little girl so it was good to make a layout about my fond memories of her. The other two layouts are about me and my brother and sister when we were young - one about christmas morning, the other about a winter outing to the Thames Barrier and Greenwich Park.

I've got a really busy few days at work coming up but I'm hoping I will keep up with the journal - I'm not finding it a chore at the moment, I'm really enjoying it so lets hope it stays that way. I'm so amazed by some of the gorgeous artwork that is being produced at the forum - its really inspirational and I'm glad that Shimelle came up with the forum as a new way to share, I've spent a lot more time getting involved in the class because of it.
