I'm linking up with Shae at Yay for Home!

If you go to great trouble to trace a sewing pattern for a sleep mask from your computer screen, because your printer isn't working, you should put it somewhere safe while you're sewing or someone (not mentioning any names) may turn it into a snowflake (albeit a very pretty snowflake).
Looking up from cooking to find someone peering through the window is always creepy - even when it's just a needy spoodle (courtesy of a poorly placed chair).
I know that 1000 blog posts jostling for precedence in my mind is nearly as bad as none at all.
As ever, Christmas has me feeling mildly panicked. (And by "mildly", I mean "extremely".)
There is little point taking your camera out if you're not going to put the memory card back in it first.
I know that our new couch cover clashes with the drapes, but co-ordinates beautifully with the children. It seems a fair trade off.

I know that the metal Christmas tree that Rex' husband made is really beautiful.
