Some more Christmas Inspiration

Good Monday Morning Ladies,

Here we are in the last week of June, I honestly can't believe how fast this year is going, it just doesn't seem possible that it will be July by Friday!!   We haven't had anything exciting happening either, so usually time drags, but at the moment it's Monday Morning one minute and Friday afternoon the next. Is it just me??

I am sharing some more Christmas cards to give you some inspiration today,  truth be told we have our annual inspection vthos week and its proper stressing me out, Paul has been busy in the garage all weekend and I have been doing jobs inside, you know how I stress over things like this, despite me saying to Paul, "this is our home, that we pay to live in so why am I worrying!! I think it's a woman thing!  For example I took all the bottles out of wine rack cleaned them and the rack and needed help putting the back, same with shoe rack in front porch, little jobs that have been bugging me for ages.

I hope that you all have a good day,  

Love and hugs  to all,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx 


  1. Morning everyone
    Love the cards Sandra. Thinking cap on but also need to find the Xmas papers etc.not sure exactly where they are.
    Didn't have a good night so a nap is on the agenda plus sorting out cards for next month's birthdays, I have a lot in July.
    OH is out in Northampton today but be back earlier if the weather is not nice and it's raining already
    Sending hugs to you all and extras for anyone not feeling too good, take care of yourself. Many hugs 🤗 xxx

  2. Hi everyone
    Beautiful inspirational cards, thank you for sharing 😊
    I hope the house inspection goes well, but try not to stress yourself out over it. Easy for me to say I know, but I’m sure they’ll see you have a lovely family home that is lovingly looked after 😊
    Have a good day everyone whatever you’re doing.
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hi All, sunshine and showers today, certainly much colder.
    Hope the inspection goes well, I’m sure your home is beautifully looked after, compared with some.
    We had one lot of tenants who let their dog chew all the doors. Needless to say we were glad when they left.

    Lovely inspiration for the challenge this week. Finished all my ironing, and also put the vacuum around as my cleaners have cancelled this week as one of them has gone down with covid, so it will be down to us this week

    That’s all folks, have a good day Lilian

  4. Lovely cards to inspire us I am sure you’re house is spotless but I know how you feel I used to stress like crazy when ma in law was coming I had to clean everything If it was my mum it didn’t bother me as much In fact she’d get the ironing board out!
    We’re doing the school run (first time) this afternoon as Charlie is at fracture clinic I doubt I will have time Daughter has suggested going extra early as it’s a nightmare to park
    Take care everyone xx

  5. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    Beautiful inspiring card for this weeks challenge, thank you xxx
    Don’t stress yourself to much over the upcoming inspection. You have both been used to RAF inspections over the years and I’m sure that has made you extra fussy. I’m sure everything will pass with flying colours. 👍
    My lovely other half has shared his germs with me. I felt rough yesterday and tested negative, but in the night I I was hot and shivering with the cold also had a headache, so 4am I tested again and it was positive. I felt I needed oxygen as my breathing was shallow and laboured. Apparently it’s all par for the course. Today I have been sleeping most of the time, they say sleep is a good healer.
    Hope you ladies are all well sending virtual hugs, Brenda xxx

  6. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. I love all of your cards, each and everyone is beautiful. I hope the inspection goes well, I’m sure it will but I know you will stress until it is done, I would be just the same. Daft aren’t we! Xx
    Brenda, I’m sorry you and John have got Covid. Please look after yourselves xx
    Karen, I hope Charlie got on ok at the clinic. I bet Oscar loved you collecting him from school xx
    Lilian, I bet you have seen some sights! You would hope that anything damaged would be repaired wouldn’t you xx
    Sonia, how are the Covid numbers at work? Are they going back up? Xx
    Maria, have you managed to start sorting out your craft room yet? Sorry you’re not sleeping very well xx
    We are taking a dear friend out for a coffee tomorrow. We haven’t seen each other since before Covid struck so looking forward to that. Sending love and hugs. Take care xx
