Its Official...

Christmas must finally be on it`s way, not only have I seen the Coke advert on Telly, not only is there a Christmas Shop in Warrington...yep complete with tinsel in every shade imaginable...I finally started my Christmas shopping today...what`s that...only 23 days until Christmas...Holy Crap I had better get a move on finishing it then!!!

I hit the very wet streets of Manchester today and made a big dent in my credit card, that I will probably spend most of next year paying off and then the joy starts all over again...Oh I am going to be so much more organised next year....Oh yes...I am doing my Christmas shopping in January and I am going to be one of those smug people that you really hate in October when I can cheerfully say oh yes all my Christmas shopping is done and it is all wrapped up too....Yeah right and I just saw another little piggy flying by the window...or was that really Rudolph out training for the big night!!!

Had a funny week, insomnia is back with a vengeance, went to bed at 6pm on Monday night and slept until 7am Tuesday morning and haven`t really slept since....my body is tired but my mind is just so awake, I have never been more organised or prepared for classes...even my students have commented on that!!! Had a good week though so far...taught at the fire station on Monday morning and they had an emergency call while we were in the building...I think some of my ladies were a little disappointed that they didn`t see the firemen running to the appliance in various states of undress...it was all very calm and professional...these are the guys you want in an emergency.

Taught this card on Tuesday....and I love it, even if I do say so myself...

Folded.....



Opened out.....



And a little close up....how sweet is that bell...



Also managed to complete a layout of Mia last night...not scrapped for fun for a while and have really missed it, but I have new stash...thanks to one of my students who bought a pile of new gorgeous papers into my class on Tuesday for us to split...I love my job!!!



Not one of my best pages but to be honest I really couldn`t find a perfect paper....wanted a pink and red one but hey we can`t have everything!!!

Off now to lay in bed probably to worry about Ella who left the house this morning armed with a suitcase and no mobile phone...how on earth did we ever manage without them...on a school trip to Menai...She returns Friday...probably with half of the Menai Strait in her suitcase!!!
