Back to the old routine...

Hi folks...we had a fun day yesterday when the Grandkiddies arrived for Christmas Dinner No 2 and to open the presents that Santa left under Grandma's tree. As much as I love Christmas there comes a point when you're glad the festivities are over...for one thing I don't think my digestive system will cope with any more rich food or my constant grazing and lack of willpower when it comes to evening nibbling...it's currently sending out strong signals that it's time to get back to the old routine...in other words normal rations and I couldn't agree more...boiled egg and soldiers on the menu for tea tonight then.
And the freaky weather is back...looks like we will be welcoming in the New Year with torrential rain and howling gales...I don't wish the folks who were affected by the bad weather over Christmas any more bad fortune but I would be highly delighted if the weather did it's absolute worst in my neck of the woods on Hogmanay night...just enough to keep the idiot firework brigade indoors.
After 4 days of being missing from the cubbyhole I was looking forward to getting back in the crafty groove and just assumed we would zoom in...make a card for the Fiskars January Newsletter and zoom right out again...
not on your nelly...Mr Mojo refused to join our little soiree so there was lots of attempts which landed in the bin before we finally nailed it resulting in the cubbyhole looking like a war zone...
and I know what you're thinking...the floor isn't looking too drastic...
that was then...right this minute...it's unrecognisable under a deluge of little punched out bits and I'm darned if I'm waking Mr Dyson up at this time of night...it will keep until tomorrow...I'm off up the wooden hill to Bedfordshire...is it going to be another night of listening to the wind howling and wondering if we will still have a roof over our heads come morning.
Toodle-oo for now
Hugs Kath xxx

It all seems to go by so fast!! I took the day off today .. made chicken noodle soup and anyone that's hungry can warm some up!! How do we put the brakes on the evening munchies???

Are soldiers sausage or toast sticks? Blessings

I was trying to keep my craft room clean over the holidays and there is only one way, stay out. I have had quite a day trying to make anything. I'm glad you shared.

Rita said...

Good Morning Kath. I certainly agree with you that all the Festive indulgence has to come to an end. I was back in my craft room yesterday too. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx

Carole, soldiers are toast sticks! x

My mojo is on vacation too...and the munchies are making me feel horrible....need to say goodbye to Christmas foods till next year! Lol!

Kathyk said...

I'm sure Mr Dyson will make short work of that little lot of paper clippings!!! I'm with you on the "normal rations" lark - pass me a chocolate!!!

Happy New Year to you

Oh I so sympathise with the Mr Mojo thingy! And as for the wind and rain, I hope it does keep the fireworks away, it is so unsettling for animals. Boiled eggs and soldiers sounds wonderful! Hugs, Anne x

Sammy said...

I have to admit I sympathise... Got back from Aberdeen Friday eve, and not managed to create a thing yet! I may have left my mojo there! x

Claire said...

Morning Kath, nice to know that other people's craft rooms can sometimes be as messy as my own! I loved the look back over your 2013 projects over the past couple of days - very inspiring. Claire x

Hi Kath, I hope your weather's as good as ours today, no wind and lovely sunshine. Not sure when this fireworks thing started, this corner never bothered with them to bring in a new year. There's an abundance of money to burn nowadays. Look forward to seeing what you made for Fiskers, I've been trying to clear out all the odd bits of card this week but hate to part with it all. Have a good day...Trish

May said...

My digestive system will be glad too! says I munching a mince pie as I read your post (lol) enjoy your day... Hugs May x x x

Julia Dunnit said...

Yep, I seem to have smothered my mojo with rich food...very much looking forward to the start of my 'proper' routine tomorrow! I hope the weather doesn't cause you any harm...it's been pretty wild.

Kat said...

I've not managed to do anything cardwise yet but I have managed to do some knitting and reading the papers! Maybe tomorrow night or Tuesday!!
