It's nearly time......

Thank you for all your kind comments about Teddy....... he's taking his pills (with the help of tuna!) like a good boy so hopefully his blood pressure will go down by our next visit in the new year.

So the BIG day is nearly here....... I used to love Christmas eve as a child....... The Wizard Of Oz was a must!!

What do you love about Christmas???

My favourite things:

*Christmas music
*Christmas dinner with all the trimmings plus a bottle of real coca cola!
*Closing the door on Christmas eve & spending time with OH & Teddy!

Hope you have a fun filled Christmas eve

Poor old Teddy

After a lovely weekend off I braced myself for a busy week working, wrapping, buying etc.

Today I took Ted to the vets for his yearly check up &  get some flea treatment...... little did we know what would happen next!!!

Teddy was born in 1995 so getting old......... the vet gave him a good going over & discovered he is going blind possibly due to high blood pressure. He needs to have his blood pressure taken but he was so stressed out the vet didn't want to do it. He also has a touch of arthritis in his left hip. She took some blood because she thought he had liver & kidney failure but thankfully that came back all clear.

All this for a check up!!!! 

He has some blood pressure tablets which she hopes will stop the blindness & will need to go in for a whole day in the new year :(

1/2 hour of my time & £85 worse off!!!! We better make the most of this Christmas as it could be his last :(

I've been busy making gifts & will be back soon to show you..... this is my final day off before the BIG day...... so much to do!!!!

Hope you all enjoy the build up!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.....

What do you think?

It's only me & OH so I don't go over the top but I think it look festive! Can you spot my lovely new deer hanging in the middle?...... it was an early gift from my friend :) 

As you can see the cats with pudding are here again! I've had these for so long & look forward to getting them out.

Also my new curtains...... a bargain from LA at only £17.50!!!

My mantle piece is too full this year for my neon tree so it found a new home in the plant stand!

And the tree!!!

I was planning on getting a real one this year but with no car it's very difficult....... I think my retro white tree looks just as nice..... cheaper & kinder!

Looking forward to seeing your decorations 

I'll be doing a Christmas giveaway over on Facebook soon ..... pop over & say hello.
