All Ready!

Hi there.
The snow is still deep and crisp and even here 'up on the top' and Mr Clicky Needles and me having been wrapping presents today. It took a few hours but was greatly helped by this brilliant selotape dispenser, I can't recommend it enough. The selotape is just where you need it and no letting go of the parcel!
I always use last year's Christmas Cards for tags, doesn't this one look nice?
Here are the presents piled up under the tree, an exciting looking bunch, I've caught DS
having an rummage on the quiet.
DS made the Yule Log ~ well, I say made, I really mean iced, and I celebrated with a glass of pink sparkles ~ any old bubbly with Creme Du Mure added ~ a blackberry liqueur, first discovered at Les Cerisiers last February. Mmmmmmmmm.
I've been making sure the birds have been well fed and watered we're getting lots coming in at the moment in this cold weather.

Only 2 sleeps to go ~ waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Bye for now ...Clicky Needles.


  1. That Sellotape dispenser looks great! I shall have to look out for one next year! Your Christmas log looks yummy too!

  2. I have one of those tape things they are just genius! Liking the look of your cocktails I have never had Creme De Mure but it sounds lovely. Have you ever tried Hibiscus flowers in syrup? You get them in a jar Hawkins Bizzare and they are lovely in Champagne or Cava and look really pretty too. Have a lovely Christmas Eve. xxxxx

  3. I'd love one of those clever little tape dispensing devices but I'm a good (tight fisted) Yorkshire girl and I see the cost of them and the refills and just get cheap rolls of tape instead! Very clever though.

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas xxx

  4. Yep, Northern Monkey it took me a long to get a tape dispenser, but they are just soooo good, and stops the bad language whilst wrapping, so worth the money IMO!


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
