"All Done", "Trimmed Up" and "Ready".

Working in retail you get to chat to the customers
and this  past week I've been asked if I'm "all done"
 "trimmed up" and  "ready" for Christmas!


Well, I've filled scales with baubles and fairy lights
and hung new baubles on the tree,


 spent an hour studding oranges with cloves to go on the "penguin" plate,



 sprinkled  glitter on the gingerbread house and 
 hyacinth bulbs have been planted up in antique moulds. 




 We spent an afternoon gluing cookie cutters together
to make a wreath and  added some jingle bells, 




I've posted cards, wrapped  presents,
  iced the Christmas cake, done the "big shop"
filled jars with sweets and hung stockings.....


So yes I think I am
 "all done, "trimmed up" and "ready" for Christmas!

Are you??


Hope you all have a  merry Christmas
 and a very  happy and healthy new year.

I feel a it like Scrooge now as your preparations have put mine to shame...especially since I was filling in my tax return today!
