Happy 1st December :)

I think I'm more than ready to welcome in the Christmas season ...I need some twinkly fairy lights in my life! hahaha    I've spent the last few days packing away the Pumpkins...
and would you believe that I found a Pumpkin! A not so little Pumpkin too! Obviously with my devious pumpkiness, I'd hidden it  sooooo well from hubby that I'd actually forgotten all about it! ....
'Olde Salem Woolens' Pumpkin...it's a lovely ceramic/pottery folk art pumpkin. It is all beautifully  hand painted and finished off with a homespun bow and vintage style label. :) I cant believe that I hid it sooo well that I forgot I had it until it was time to pack everything away! hahaha...what a Muppet I am! ;) 
Hubby very kindly, and with only minimal grumblings ;) lifted all my Christmas boxes down from the loft and re stored the Pumpkin boxes safely for next year. All 10 of my Christmas boxes are currently filling the little room, which is seriously impeding  Hubby and sons football viewing ..hehehe :)  I had every intention of getting all the decorations out and set up but life has been keeping me busy ...that and I've pulled a muscle in my shoulder when I was trying to gently restrain a very uncooperative  Angel Mim at the Dentist on Friday ...she was not happy to be there..hehe...we had they whole kit and caboodle...crying, screaming, the good old 'bucking bronco' move to get out of the seat and lots of jaw clamping ...she made sure that the poor Dentist earned her pay, I bet she'll be looking forward to our next appointment in 6 months time ..hahaha... but Angel Mim's teeth are okay so all is good  :) Angel Esther didn't cause me half as much trouble and no pulled muscles but only because she's smaller and didn't put up much of a fight! hahaha   I'm sure we must have scared everyone sat in the waiting room as they sat there listening to the Kirby-Angel-commotions... Our Dentist and her team  are very lovely, they've known the Angels since they were tiny tots and are not at all fazed by their antics ...apart from the wrestling and finger biting hazards, it is one of our better appointments to attend :)  

Anyways back to my Christmas decorations ... :)  As I said not much has been unpacked but I did manage to hang my December Word-Play pocket ....
 I love these little monthly stitching's designed by Brenda Gervais :)   I so enjoy getting each one out at the beginning of a new month...I think they were my favourite 'stitch-of-the-month' that I have ever sewn ...and completed! hahahaha

The 1st of December is the start of our Christmas tradition of  Advent calender's...
chocolate Advent calender's naturally! ;) We've gone all posh this year and I splurged the pennies and chose  Thorntons chocolate calender's  (they were on offer at the supermarket! hehehehe)  Day 1 got off to a good start ...only one chocolate out of each calender was consumed! And they are now locked away in the Quiet Room, safe from excited and sticky Angel fingers ...although throughout the day I have often heard Angel Mim rattling door handles trying to get into rooms in her hunt for Christmas chocolate! hahaha  We'll just have to hope we have no chocolate robberies as this year I have no back-up/spare calender's ..hehehe  

I'm hoping after resting my shoulder today that tomorrow it will feel easier and I'll be able to make a start on those boxes ....I really am feeling quite desperate for some twinkly fairy lights! :)  :)

Sorry to hear the poor angel had so much trouble at the dentist. My DH goes this week and given his feelings, they would be much like the angel!! But for a 77 year old man, he just can't get away with it. Can't wait to see all the pretty decorations. I felt a bit sad putting Fall away.
