Very early this morning I watched the light creep across the bedroom ceiling and the first birds started singing as I lay sleepless with hot pinpricks of fever running through my inert body. In my head I had mentally redecorated the house, designed another few cards and restocked the shop. I lay there listening to the bizarre snatches of early morning radio as Roland hit the snooze button several times more. I really hope I'm not getting this cold and fever that is doing the rounds. I cannot be ill now, 'tis the busy season!!! Dang and blast!
The winner of the Christmas giveaway is Angela aka Toadstoolella! Congratulations to you and your parcel will be on it's way shortly.
The sharp-eyed amongst you will recognise this little creature as the Mushroom Pixie but Toadstoolella was just such a perfect name! Thank you to everyone who shared their elfin names, they were such fun to read.
I'm starting to worry about how ill prepared I am for Christmas. I have a couple of half finished Christmas card designs which I hoped to road test on my ever patient family and friends but as usual time has run away with me . . . "I can't believe it is nearly the end of the year" I said to Roland last night.
"You know what that means, don't you?" he replied. "The years speed up, the older you get."
And for once, I couldn't think of a thing to say.
