It bugs me no end that I fail to keep this blog up to date. I even signed up for Shimelles Blogging class in the hope of improving that, but I've not been able to keep up with it! I have printed all the prompts off with a view to reading them though, so thats something I guess!
Went to see New Moon last Tuesday. Tuesday is a girly day as Abi has the day off from college so we both went to see it. Fab film - I think I may have to go and see it again. Abi is in the 'Jacob camp' but even though he is very gooooorgeous, I am more an Edward fan, lean and mean, hehe. We had a laugh though - there is a part of the film where Jacob takes his shirt off and Abi said 'daaaaaaamn' in a slightly louder voice than she wanted and most of the audience heard her, lol.
Can you believe Christmas is nearly here?! Its going too quickly for me, although I am organised as far as presents go. I only have the boys to do and I am done! Lots of cards to make though and the decorations to do - need to get a tree this week.
Bit worried at the moment though - FIL is in hospital and he is very poorly. He has an infection in his liver, which is something he suffered from a few years ago. I worry every time the phone rings. Keeping fingers crossed he recovers quickly.
And our very last guinea pig died Thursday night, so sad. He was very old, over five years old, and had been gradually slowing down over the past few weeks. He died in his sleep, bless him. I loved Wiggy (he was very long haired and looked like a wig with legs!) and miss him already. I would stand at the kitchen sink and be able to watch him in his cage outside and loved hearing his squeak when a bag was rattled as he thought it was food. We had been bringing him in every night for the past couple of months to make sure he was warm and away from the night chill. The last couple of pets we had died from ill health and had to be put down by the vet, so I am thankful he went in his sleep. RIP Wiggy... :-(

I am going to do Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas - I am determined too! I made an Advent Diary for a project on Fiskarettes and will make a little compartment to keep the tags in too. Fingers crossed I can keep up and be organised this December...
We have opened our chocolate advent calendars! We all have one, how exciting! Can't remember the last time I bothered with one for myself, but why not, eh?! Have you had yours?......
