WOYWW - Happy Birthday DH

Good morning all. What a wonderful Christmas we had. Most of the kids were here and we spent a fantastic day in the sun with kids and grandkids. Ate too much (what else is new?) Talked for hours, went to church with the two youngest kids. Lots of sad memories this year, missing all our parents and our dear friend Anton, but also lots of fantastic things happening.
 My workdesk was transformed to a bedroom last night. DD 3 and her boyfriend and friends left for Jeffreys Bay at 1 this morning. Of course I had to wake them up at half past 12, which means I am really tired this morning.
 This is my workroom this morning. A very sad picture, but fear not, all has been picked up and put in its proper place already. Thought I would show you the last thing created just before my room was  taken over. I made some calenders for all the grandies to put in their rooms. The image is a La La Land one and the papers came free with a magazine.
 And here you see my newest grandie, Monty. He came for a visit with his dad, the cutest kitten ever. I am on permanent anti allergy meds, because I am very allergis to cats, but he is sooo cute, I don't even mins.
Today is my DH's birthday and traditionally it turns into one mega party, so spare a thought for me. So many parties on top of each other is not good for the diet. LOL
HappyWOYWW to all and may you have a fantastic New Year.


  1. Happy Birthday to your |DH. Hope he gets separate presents from Christmas. Cute kitten you ae so good to take meds for a visitor cat.
    Happy New Year to you ad yours.

  7. Aw happy birthday to DH, party on dudes! how great of you to accommodate the kitty, you are a wonderful gal Tertia. We too have had time filled with family and food, and it's been wonderful. No sunshine though, unless you count bucket loads of the liquid variety!!

  8. I love all the pictures, thanks for sharing them. Love your space...I know you are glad to have it back! Sending you wishes for a very Happy New Year!

  9. You are good. I wouldn't have woken up to wake the up, I'd have left them to figure it out on their own. It's a beautiful calendar and I hope you and DH have a great day today.

    Cheers, Rachel #11

  10. Enjoy your party today! We are having a scorcha down here in CT! I am with you on the anti cat meds, I am hyper allergic too.

  11. Know what you mean about the parties as it was our DS's birthday on 21st so we are partied out by Christmas and ready for a rest - which we had too. Thanks for visiting today and have a happy New Year BJ#15

  12. I'd forgotten it was Wednesday til I switched the computer on but of course I wouldn't miss out our fun for all the world even if life is pretty manic at ours today :-)
    I've done the early prep that I can do for the party later[quiche, icing of buns, cooking of mini sausages etc] so there is just the last minute bits to go in the oven now. Now enjoying a quick bit of blog hopping and a coffee :-)
    Hope your partying goes well too.
    Here's hoping 2013 brings good health and much happiness for all :-)
    Biggest hugs,

  14. Diets don't count at Christmas, especially if there are birthdays going on too! Glad to hear you're enjoying lots of family time... Continuing good wishes for the festive season, and happy WOYWW!

  17. Full house and lots of fun things planned! Waving hi from the rainy, but wishing it was snowing hills of North Carolina for the last WOYWW of 2012!!

  18. Aaaah, a warm SA Christmas, I remember them well!! Looks like you have had a housefull and lots of fun... keep taking the allergy meds!!
    Happy WOYWW and Boxing Day, Annette #19

  19. Lovely that your craft room is big enough to sleep guests in! Enjoy the rest of the holidays and happy crafting when you can! Helen, 40

  20. Love the little fluffyfourfeet - how sweet. That's really good of you to be up at that time - I'd have given them an alarm clock and slept through!!
    Hope you get your space back to normal soon
    Season's greetings
    Happy WOYWW

  21. Many happy returns to your DH, hope the partying goes well :) I have heard that if you shampoo new kittens it helps with allergies ... not sure how the kittens feel about that though! Happy WOYWW and happy New Year too. Elizabeth x #30

  22. What fun with all the party celebrating. My DH has a birthday Jan. 2 so I do get a big wnough break to clear up the Christmas wrappings before the birthday wrappins appear.

  27. Your calendar for the grandies is adorable, Tertia! Happy Birthday (belated) to your DH and no sense worrying about diets this time of year. It will all be over soon enough and why not enjoy a few days being bad? (Of course, that's not true - it's easy to put it on, but OH so hard to take it off!)

    I'm still making my way around WOYWW. I send you best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!! Darnell #53

  28. Oh he is so cute and what a bummer being allergic to cats, I love my cats....

    Love your grandies calendar, what a great idea.
