Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

Christmas is still coming…

I needed gold ribbon for this book. I have had trouble finding metallic ribbons that aren’t sparkly especially as Christmas draws near. The shops remove half the normal stock and replace it with the twinkliest, green-red-gold, tartan, holly berried, reindeer festooned nonsense you have ever seen. I suppose I am going to have to overcome my ‘Bah humbug!’ tendencies and make a Christmas book or two. But hey! They are going to be MY kind of Christmas books….I have a plan…

I also have a friend coming round for lunch and the cupboard is bare. I still have to clear all my bookbinding stuff out of the kitchen so it looks vaguely tidy and we can get at the kitchen table, and go to the shops to actually buy said lunch before she arrives. And here I am blogging. See how much it has taken over my life?! So a short post. I leave with this cartoon from Animals have Problems Too which appealed to my sense of humour and simultaneously struck a chord. Hypochondriac? Moi?

    Hypochodria! That’s another disease I suffer from!

    He he. That camel comic was good.

    I hope you had a good time with your friend and were able to tidy up a little :)

    Dear Jim&Em – Welsh Scrabble – excellent!

    SW – Managed to tidy up, buy lunch, serve lunch, gossip our heads off and am now back to deciding the next book. What a predictable life I lead!

    You make such beautiful stuff…you really do! As for the camel comic..too funny…I’m sitting here alone in front of the computer screen laughing

    omg , I can’t catch hypchondria from looking at that can I?

    So you’re the ring leader of the Christmas is dead (UK) cell

    MM – you are very kind! I saw the cartoon and burst out laughing too but as a fully paid up hypochondriac, it made me wince too…

    Toadee – if you aren’t one already, I think you are safe…
    Christmas isn’t dead..it’s just ill and needs some tlc. And that’s not just hypochondria speaking…. :)

    Thanks! Ooh! I don’t know Kim, I’m torn….Ken or George? Who to keep?

    I’m trying to get into the Christmas spirit but it just isn’t happening. This book was a step along the way…. :-)

    Hi Diane! I needed a break from my blog, so I thought I’d hang out here and see what’s up. I love this red and gold book. It’s scrumptious.

    No more humbugs! I like the way you “do” Christmas. I need to go check out the other books you’ve done this week. I’ve never seen a book I didn’t like. :D

    Hi Plum! Welcome again! I’m glad you like the book – it is quite ‘festive’ isn’t it?
