The First WOYWDW of Advent!

30th November. My Mum's birthday and the last day of the most depressing month of the year.
And a bonus day off, due to the Strike Action today! My son is at home too, but unfortunately my daughter's school remained open, which put paid to any thoughts I had of taking them out for a treat day. It wouldn't be fair, so R and I will spend the day catching up with homework (his and mine) and go into town later to buy wrapping paper and some last cards. I will probably run to a McDonald's for lunch.

Meanwhile, back at the desk, all is fairly tidy as I had a blitz on Monday. You can see my JYC Smash Book, all ready to go for 1st December and a layout about the first day of term. I've discovered these pre-embossed Core'dinations sheets, which are great as I don't own an embossing machine. This one has an alphabet running through it, which I have started to sand.
If you want to get into the Christmas spirit, scroll down and take part in my Christmas MeMe.
Enjoy your day, whether you are working or not. To visit some more desks, go and see Julia at the Stamping Ground.

I agree, those Core'dinations embossed papers are great to use. Looks like you're ready for December to start!

Nice busy desk there - I too have one home and one in school today - little one has a friend coming home after school with him though so he is not too put out! Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl – No 4

Shame your daughter is still at school, I would have been so petulant and whiny about that when I was her age! Hope you get JYC completed this year, not like there isn't lots of other stuff to do, lol!

Hope you managed to get lots of things done on this bonus day! My son was very ticked off as only year 11s had to go into his school because of mock exams. That's a double whammy!!
Hugs, LLJ #39 xx

I'm looking forward to seeing how the Smash books work out for JYC. I bet it was nice to spend quality time with just one of the children.
