WOYWW - The Christmas One, with unexpected excitement

Yes it's the last WOYWW before Christmas, so a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful, healthy and happy New Year to all.  On my workdesk today is the evidence of panic batch Christmas card making.

Just a few 'special' cards to make now, but they don't need to be finished until Christmas Eve.

It's all been eventful here.  A desperate call last night disturbed the Christmas card writing, it was Mum to say she had called the fire brigade!   Sparks had shot out of her storage heater and she could smell burning and hear flames inside the heater.  Hear flames!  Yes she put her ear up to it!!!  SMO ran round to lend a hand and all was well.  Everything smelt strongly of smoke but there was no further damage.  They made the thing safe, gave the house a check and told her off for keeping things too close to heaters, fitted her with a new smoke alarm and were on their way.  I should have gone instead of SMO and asked all the hunky men (they were, SMO says!) if they needed to check my place over!!!

Whilst this was going on I was building some 2nd hand Lego to check it was all OK, the listing had said one piece missing.  There were 12 pieces missing, that's a lot different to 1, some people make you really grrrrr.
 It's a kids toy, selling it at this time of year it's highly likely to be a Christmas present, some people are just plain mean, Bah Humbug to them!!!

Eek that was close then. But glad all ok in the end. Hmm 12 pieces is too many for sure. That's not good, hope you told them so! No desk from me today as I've got DT projects on there and I can't share it yet! Merry Christmas, take care. Zo xx

Oh, dear, talk about getting too close to the fire! So glad it wasn't worse. I'm sorry you dealt with rotten peeps who told you a lie about a kid's present. Haven't they ever heard of karma?!

Best wishes for a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year! Darnell #32

Humbug indeed...so now what do you do? Am so glad your Mum's fire was 'contained', what a relief. And an accidentally nice experience to boot!
Happy Christmas!

sorry to hear about your Mom's fire! Even contained it was an ordeal for her. A little late getting around but just stopping by to say I hope you have a wonderful holiday! Blessings to you and your family in the coming year. Vickie #100
