SUNDAY! HOW'D THAT HAPPEN!
Well the best laid plans etc... Maybe one should not make plans because it always seems that if you do something will come along and throw a spanner in the works!
That's exactly what happened this week, Granny's shop should have been raking in the money, stock flying from the shelves, the tale for Christmas well underway.
My house should be sparkling like a new pin with Christmas tree , decorations etc all in place!
However none of the above as yet happened due to coming down with a full blown head thumping cold! So although the spirit was willing, the flesh was decidedly weak!
I did not even venture from the house until Saturday, to collect some items I had ordered for Christmas presents and needed to collect from their shop and also to select a Christmas wreath for the front door!
Christmas cards finally started to be written on Saturday and some even got so far as to be put into the postbox!
I am pleased to finally have started to recover although this cold's come along with a hacking cough! Now I never usually get cough's so this is driving me nuts! Waking me at 4 am for a coughing fit etc. But hopefully it will all then me gone by Christmas.. hopefully..
So today things are starting to happen on the getting ready for Christmas side and also the brain is now no longer aching, so I can go and see what's happened to Granny and Bruno !
On the Sasha doll front not much happening, coming or going. From my space on the sofa I have managed to keep up with happening here and there on the net. One of which as given me an idea.
Steve on Gregoropolis had a couple of his lad's helping him deck the hall's this week and he showed off a couple of the decorations for the tree.
I have always loved buying at least one new decoration for the Christmas tree each year, This year I bought three and here are two of them.
I could not resist this little fighting mouse or
his friend .
So here is the idea that seeing Steve's post gave me. I thought it would be great if anyone who follows or pops into this blog now and again , sent in a photo of their favourite, or newest or strangest or even oldest Christmas tree decoration, their Sasha or Gregor could be holding it or pointing it out and I'll share them on a blog post on the 23rd December.
I'll be getting out the one that none of my girls like and one that's nice, although I like the other one too!
So check out the tree and see which one or two you and your Sasha children would like to share and send in those photos.
The Christmas shop tale will continue this week all being well and to that end I wish you all a happy and healthy week ahead!

A fab idea about the tree decs... count me in....see you on the 23rd!ReplyDelete
Nice choice with the little mice! Hope you are feeling better xx
Good I will expect an interesting photo from you by the 23rd :)Delete
A cold/cough is just the worst! It can really wear one down. Do make sure you get plenty of rest. Those little mice are adorable. I have another ornament in mind that would definitely fall into the 'strangest' category.ReplyDelete
I've been surprised just how long it's taken to begin getting over it!Delete
That other ornament sounds intriguing ! I look forward to seeing :)
Get better soon Denise.ReplyDelete
I'm afraid that I can't join in with the Christmas tree decoration post as all my baubles are much of a 'muchness' (and are only 22 years old so relatively new) so could I perhaps do a house decoration instead?
Thanks Kendal, I'm back to work tomorrow so I'm sure I'm on the mend! :)Delete
A house decoration would be lovely, anything that's filling peoples home with some Christmas joy is welcome. :)
I think the fairy who always goes on the top of my tree is probably the most unusual you will see! I'll send you a picture. And also one made by my 42 year old son when he was about 4 years old. :-DReplyDelete
Yes it is Leni ! lol Thanks for sharing :)Delete
I hope you are feeling much better Dee!!! Your mouse ornament is adorable. I will send you a photo of an ornament from the Mullins Christmas tree. 😊 xxxReplyDelete
I am thank you ginger. I do love a good Christmas Tree decoration :) xxxDelete
Oooh, lovely idea, the sharing of special tree items, Dee. Now, where did I actually put the box of tree decorations? If I don't get a little tree up somewhere today for our shared grandson to enjoy, it won't happen at all!ReplyDelete
Oh yes you must get a tree up even if only a small one. Gaku needs to see all those pretty dec's :)Delete
