All Santa's Reindeer

Well what a week! Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who left me lovely comments or sent emails regarding our accident, you are all such lovely people! Also I would like to thank our family for all their help this past week and my best friend Daniela and her mum Yvette for the lovely plant basket they sent, such a sweet thought. You are all such kind and considerate people, thank you so much.

We are doing OK, our necks/backs are still very stiff and sore, lots of aches and pains etc but we are still pleased that things were not worse. Poor Adrian is dealing with the insurance etc. I made it into work for my first few days in my new job and I am really enjoying it, I'm working with such a great team, they were really good about what happened. My mum picked me up for work as I did not feel up to driving as I had limited movement. My mum is also now working in the same department which is good! So far, so good, I think I will enjoy my new role, although I've got lots to learn!

I have just managed this quick and simple Christmas card using one of my Unity stamps from last year.

Supplies: stamp - Unity/ sentiment from Stash - 99p clear stamp set/ ribbon from Liberty-Bell quilting shop in Chester/ other Oval nesties, chalks, shimmer paints.

The ladies that won the candy thank you for your patience, I've now packages them up and will have them out to you come Monday.

Hope you are having a good weekend, I'm now off to watch the X factor, can't be bothered to cook so think a Chinese take away will do nicely, then a film! Well it doesn't hurt after a hectic week.
