Well?  Did you miss me?  I was AWOL last week enjoying a few days away with family at Centre Parcs.....and a fab time was had by all :-)

So? What's on my desk today?....

 Yes....it's a Christmas wrapping station.  :-)

....and every surface is covered in wrapped parcels but I shall be working today so these will all have to be hidden away in the spare bedroom for now.

Some of you may remember last year Shell and the twins had Bob the elf move in for December and all the antics he got up to?  Well, this year he has brought his girlfriend Betty with him and here are a few pics of what they have been up to.

Of course Nanny Annie likes to play along so yesterday morning I spent some time making outfits for the mischievous pair....[Bob and Betty of course not the twins! :-) ].

....and on my desk you can see 2 mermaid tails, 2 ballet tutus, a nurses outfit and some troll wigs I've made for them....as you do!  :-)

That's all from me for today.  I just want to say Happy Christmas to one and all and wish you all you wish for yourselves for 2017 but first and foremost that it's a happy and healthy one for you all.

I'm so glad that you had a good break, much needed after all the ups and downs of this year. The sewing made me laugh - only you could make such a wide variety of items...esp the troll wig!
Thanks for all the support and friendship throughout the year, Let's meet up in 2017 huh?

Great to have you back Annie sweetie. I know you are probably making your mince pies right now, well I have a lady who makes ours and the Christmas cake too (she is the Mother of one of the children I used to teach) so we are off to go and get those this afternoon and nip in to see a few friends too which will be nice. Loving your elves by the way. Look forward to another great year of friendship and wishing you a lovely Christmas, Angela x 14

Glad you had a fun time visiting family. The elves seem like they are up to all kinds of mischief! It's funny what they get up to - seen some really 'shocking' things on Facebook lol.

Happy holidays to you and your family

Center Parcs, how lovely. It's been a few years since we've been but it's a great place isn't it?
You look very organised with all those exciting looking parcels. I hope you all have a great Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2017. Thank you for your friendship on here over the last year.

Oh Annie, you are so clever with your fingers. Making those outfits for the elves. Hope we get to se them wearing them later.
Hope you have recovered from your time away and rested those legs of yours.
Thanks for the lovely message - I have valued your listening ear so much these past few months and it was so good to come down and see you. Makes it so much more real the friendship.
Wishing you all the very best at Christmas and hopes for a healthy, prosperous new year.
Lots of Love
