Christmaspresents need to be wrapped.

Goodmorning everybody!

We had some nice days, with not too much hustle, and how I love that LOL!
Jan even got a ohonecall from the sickness benefits authority. Well he had that earlier, but it was a caal to see how it's going with him and to hear about the results of the MRI and such.
He was lucky to have a nice lady, who even understood completely what he was talking about.
And she informed him, that in a few days he could expect some money on his account. And that was good news. When you get sick, it takes a few weeks to get that money, but now it is on it's way. We know now what he will get as "pay"for each day, but I will wait the payment before we will smile a bit LOL. Then they will "pay"him every week, which is a nice thing.
It will not be lots of money, but it surely helps to get through the month LOL.
Finally some good news around here.

I got a phonecall from Heidi yesterday too, she just wanted to know how Jan is doing. She also will have to deal with a husband styaing at home for a couple of weeks. Her hubby Danny, will go to hospital next week for a surgery on his knee.
And today Séverine will receive her 1st school report from the new grade, so everybody is curious how she is doing.

I read already on several blogs that people are busy with the Christmas presents. Well, it's about time to start with them, specially when you have to send them away. I will not have to do much, but I should check what I have so far and look around for something more. Santa will have to be a bit sparingley mith money, but still hopes to find some nice things. And it's not the amount of money spent that counts, but the thought isn;t it?
It's just the knowledge somebody took time to find something nice, did an effort for it, simpy.........thought about you .

Yesterday I even made my new bloglayout for the holidays! When a new layout is ready I so want to put it on, but I will be strong and wait a couple of more days LOL.
So funny at the moment, I am in almost full design mood, but also am eager to get on with my knitting. Yes, the seat cover and two armrest covers for the couch are ready now, it's nothing special, but as long as I am happy with it, it's okay.
But I started another one, this time in a real dark red color, and that has to be ready some time before Christmas. It will be nice for Christmastime, specially when I match it with the Christmas fleece blanket.

I just came from reading Edna's blog, where she has a lovely picture of a rose, one of the original color and one of a manipulated one. We too have still some roses blooming, which I think is amazing!
I gave her a link to a most wonderful site for roses, and if you want to drool and drool and drool, you should take a look there too!

The kit and clusters of today! Something a bit romantic, at least the name of the kit, but I think also the kit and certainly the clusters. I named it"The Flight of the Swan".
Hope you can dream away for a few moments when using it for a layout LOL.
Have a great day!

Thank you so much for these new kits, and thanks to Arlene for her clusters. They are so beautiful and peaceful!
I'm glad that your husband will be paid, especially at the moment, with the Christmas presents, and prices are more and more expensive everywhere...
I'm impatient to see your new blog layout! Will you show us a photo of your seat cover ? I'm curious, LOL!
Now I'm going to take a look at the beautiful David Austin's roses!
Have a wonderful day!

What good news that Jan will be getting his pay soon. It must be quite a relief for you.

I thought I would have today off from work so that I could get Audrey's box in the mail, but I ended up having to come in to work so I will have to mail the box on Friday.

I thoroughly agree with you. It's not the gift, but the thought that someone cares that counts.

Now I must get busy here. Pretty soon it will time to go home. You have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
