with apologies to Pam Ayers

The cardmaking frenzy is over,
They're all finished just in time
There's tall ones and short ones and square ones,
And some have a corny rhyme.

So I've put away the glitter, 
And I've tidied up the glue,
The holly dies are neatly filed,
The festive paper too

The Christmas stamps all cleaned, 
Are organised is their store,
And the inkpads, gold and silver
Stacked neatly in their drawer.

The Christmas box is back again, 
beneath the spare room bed,
I've finished all the Christmas cards
I'm ready for my bed.

So that is why there is nothing on my desktop today, except of course the picture was taken Tuesday evening and by Wednesday lunch time it will be covered in wrapping paper, and string. 

Welcome dear surfer if you have arrived at this page by accident, please feel free to read and comment and visit other desks at Julia's

Brilliant! You could land a plane on a that surface, how marvellous. I love that it becomes the wrapping station next, how fun.
