Well of course it's Christmas, so what do I get...?
Yes you're right, I get sick..!!!
EVERY frikkin year...
This year it started with a sickness bug, then a tooth abscess and then the antibiotics knocking me for six... Ho frikkin ho...!!!
And its not as if I have anything to do is it??
I mean, I still have two and a half whole days before I leave for the biggest trade show of the year in the US...so whats with the panic !!!
Apart from the illness I had a fabulous time, celebrating. Firstly Christmas visits to all the kids and families, Ben and Katie's first wedding anniversary, Jays thirtieth birthday, New Year. Its always all go at Reaveley Towers.I hope whatever you were doing you had a fabulous time too.
Its now full systems go with the sample making and swatch boards, nothing like a last minute panic to get the creative juices flowing.
