Celebrate the small things

Thanks to the lovely Viklit for hosting

I didn't manage to post for the Celebrate the small things last week therefore this post will cover the last couple of weeks! So, what have I been up to that doesn't involve work, cooking, cleaning, running around after the family etc etc? 

* I enjoyed a lovely evening meeting up with some friends we made at dance classes. Unfortunately, the classes stopped and it has been quite a while since we were all together so it was good to have a catch up.

* We hosted a Christmas party at our house for friends and neighbours.

* I have written and posted the first batch of Christmas cards.

* A friend gave me these unusual flowers and I think they are just fabulous. And of course purple! I'm not sure what they are called, if anyone knows please let me know.



* There are a couple of social events this weekend. Friday will be my Christmas meal at work and Saturday brings another chance to done my dancing shoes and sparkly dress! 

Basically there is so much going on there has been little time to add to my manuscript but I guess it is going to be like that till the New Year.

Happy Friday!

  2. Seems like you are really busy with a lot of laughter and fun right now. It's good to let your hair down and enjoy the company of friends when the opportunity arises. Have a great weekend, dancing the nights away.

    I haven't wrote a single Christmas card yet. I sorted out the kids' cards for school but haven't got round to doing my own yet.

  16. OK, don't be offended, but I'm pretty sure they're cabbage flowers. (It's nice that cabbages get the chance to be pretty...sort of like Cinderella, but with - um cabbages...I'll stop now.)
    And - yes - the run-up to Christmas is exhausting, isn't it?

    1. Well now you mention it they do look a lot like cabbages and this morning they kinda smell a bit like them too!

  20. Getting Christmas cards done is quite an achievement! I'm celebrating 1.) living at the beach in California even during a cold snap, 2.) finding out my tooth does not have to be pulled--it's a sinus infection!, and 3.) having my young adult horror story, Death House, get accepted for publishing (woo hoo!), as well has having my short story, "Christmas After All," released tomorrow in a Christmas anthology called A Touch of Winter. Happy Holidays!

  24. Oops, here I am, running way behind in my commenting, yet again. Your Christmas season is well and truly in full swing. Social times and getting cards out, nice one. I guess I'd better get started.
