Back to Reality...with a BUMP

Had a real fun day on Saturday with Brodie and Oliver....a scrummy lunch and back to Chez Kath for the yummy chocolate birthday cake......this was Oliver's reaction when Grandma said "SMILE".....isn't he cute...

But all good things come to an end and yesterday was a mega day of Christmas Card Orders....these are all done and dusted and going off today....
but the downside is......still have 161 cards to make before the end of November... that's 20 days minus the 4... for this weekend .....Brodie and Oliver are coming to stay.....so that's down to 16...well by my maths that's 10 cards a day....not a great deal when you're churning out lots of the same but life just has a habit of getting in the way....I have some personal birthday cards to make...a baby card to make and present to buy and all the other little things that crop up on a daily basis  AND there  is this flu thing that seems to be going the rounds...so me thinks I have to shut myself away in my little cave...no contact with the outside world and strict quarantine restrictions are gonna have to apply to anyone coming to call.....was thinking of wearing one of those DIY face masks but the poor postie gets enough of a shock when I open the door in the morning in my dressy gown....so maybe not.  Well no time to stand here blethering......off to make a cuppy and get stuck in to work..... catch up with you all later.
Bloggy hugs from your paranoid bloggy buddy.......Kath xxxxxxx
P.S.  A few queries about the card bags...NO....I didn't make them as Dawny P suggested....are you having a laugh....I bought them...4 in a pack from Aldi.

Ohh poor Kath xxx Yes, stay away from any germ laden bods, cos I had the flu thing and it is a real pain in the butt. So do you feel any different now you are in a new decade? I need tips cos I have one of those changing ones coming up - ohhh I cannot bring myself to say the fffffffffifty word. I am sooo not looking forward to it and think I may need therapy lol xxx Coping strategies gratefully received xxxxx

I have to say that I LOVE those bags you packed your cards in Kath. Are they made by your own fair hand or can you buy them. They are just so sweet xxxx

The cake looks yummy! Any left? :o)

Bless little Oliver - what a cutie! Don't really know what to say about the card orders except good luck. I don't envy you all that hard work.
