What Day Is It?

Cor blimey and thrice, how much Christmas pud is it possible to consume in just a few days! Well, I managed very well because Grim had got one of those "hidden cherry" centred ones from Sainsbury's and oh lordy indeedily, it was THE best Christmas pud... in the World (said in my best Jeremy Clarkson voice) However, it also weighed in at about three stone... and being as there are only two of us to eat it.... well, it has been much ...erm...loved... and still there's some left over! I might just try that Nigella recipe you know... she cumbles old pud into a bowl, sloshes in some booze, plops a load of melted choccy into the mix and then makes them into little truffles... oooh lala... yes, that could be a very good thing to do.

Anyways... I am all to pot with my days this week... for some reason I think it is Tuesday, although I know it isn't because poor old Grim is back at work already and that means it is Wednesday... which also means that I was supposed to be blogging yesterday but I got waylaid on the sofa, with an enormous box of choccy's and loads of Christmas telly to watch. To be honest, I am all festived out now... having eaten my bodyweight in turkey and sprouts and consumed faaar too much chocolate, I am so going to be payin for that next week with the zits that shall no doubt arrive in time for New Year!

Before I went off on my little Xmas blog break, I had been faffing with that lovely Tissue Wrap of Tim's and made a little spikey flower using the Tattered Florals die.. and cut the offcut pieces into thin strips to make a little nest for my bird - which is mountboard, covered with Tissue and die cut using the Caged Bird Alterations. The tag design is one of the 12 Tags from 2010 - actually I think that this one must have been my fave because I have recreated it so many times in the last year! Being as it is a Tim Tag, I am entering it into the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge which is... tim Tags! CLICK HERE for all the deets. Well, that's all from me for today... I am working on some more gorgeous Tissue Wrap at the moment... and if it isn't nailed down, it will be covered in the stuff... needless to say, AlfieCat is moving about a lot... I can't get him to stand still long enough to cover his tail up (joke!!!) Right.... am offski to the Room of Stashly Messes (which is not quite the Doom of Trash but on it's way again!) So....what did you over do (or over indulge on) this Christmas... do tell do!!! TTFN

scrumptious card, you are allowed to over indulge for a couple of days but I must admit I'm stuffed

Oooh, we had one of those Sainsbury's puds too and for the first time ever the family polished off the whole thing on Christmas day! Was sooo delicious!

Your tag is beautiful!

I was quite restrained over the Xmas/Boxing day dinner table....... didn't want to put any of my 21 lost pounds back on. But Lew bought me a box of Cherry Marnier Liqueur chocolates and I have eaten all 15 of them and feel such a pig!!!!! But they were soooooo nice!
Ah well - back to weightwatchers tomorrow :-(
Lovely tag Hels btw!!

Happy New Year Hels.
