I think I might have been in slight Hibernation!!!

Like Little Pickle above!
The dark nights, the cold mornings, loads on at work as we are now in "peak" with the big C drawing ever closer makes me want to curl up in the evenings and sleep.
 As I have said before this time of year at work is soo manic that often I don't have the energy to pick up the lap top when I get home because my brain is full of spreadsheets and numbers!!!
But tonight the logs are burning on the fire, dinner has been eaten at a reasonable time and Bramble Jelly has been made for Christmas presents.
So I think I'm relaxed enough to write and tell you what has been happening in the Chez Sophie House hold.
Saturdays have been full of Charity Shop fun, some great bargains and Christmas presents have been bought.
I have been to another WI meeting, the calender for 2011 meetings sounds like fun so I am defiantly joining in January. I'm still the youngest there! but I have a cunning plan to get a younger crowd involved.
Slimming world is still being followed!! but I have to say I have come to a slight stand still and need to put a bit more effort in to shift a few more pounds before Christmas.
Treacle my little cat has been poorly and keeps having to go to the Vets for antibiotic injections!
 She hates it and it makes me feel like an awful Mummy.
I was given a bread maker by a girl at work last week and now am making bread on a Friday night ready for the weekends.
All the fruit in the freezer is having to be made into Jam to make room for the Christmas food.
And a new Blue front door has been ordered and should be here this week, eek!
So that's my news, sorry for the Hibernation period, I will endeavour to wake myself up and get back to it.
I'm off now to visit your blogs and catch on your news.
Have a great week.

Oh I wish I could hibernate like the bears here in Sweeeeeeden.
I;m on over-drive and seem to be permanently living out of a suitcase. I have been a bit silent too...and I am playing catch-up with lots of cups of tea, savouring my lovely blogging friends blogs...just going to have a read of yours now...
Don't work too hard, keep well!
A BLUE DOOR! sounds exciting, I can imagine it now with a lovely Christmas Welcome Ring... photo's please ;-)

You'll have to make a big pan of homemade soup now to go with the delicious bread you'll be making, Lucey xx

Hi Sophie, lovely to have a bread machine. I use mine all the time - it's great to make a pizza dough base (you should find you have a setting for this), home made bread does need to be eaten quickly as no preservatives so I freeze half of each loaf I make to avoid waste. Have a lovely time - your house will smell wonderful. xxx

It sounds like you've been very busy, not hibernating!

Hello dear! I know exactly how you feel, They should make the work day shorter at this time of year! It sounds like you're going to have a fine selection of nom noms in your fridge soon! Will certainly make the cold nights a little more bearable ;) xxx

also I hope treacle feels better soon! Little Jinx has been rather off lately but a few days of pigging out seem to have set him right :P xx
