Helloooooo!!I know, I know, it's been a long time...
First of all MERRY CHRISTMAS I hope you're enjoying the season with your family and friends :o)
We started out on Sun 21st with a family lunch at home to "celebrate" we already have the furniture of the living room (that will be the theme for another post).
My parents, my sister & her boyfriend and the two of us, we had such a great time!! First the luncheon and then SingStar :o) I was an elf for that day, their faces were priceless!!
Christmas for me was supposed to be as usual although a little bit busy at work. Jose was supposed to drive down to the South on Christmas Eve to spend these days with his family since I was on duty on the 25 & 26 morning shift and yesterday double shift. I would have Christmas Eve's dinner at my parents' as well as Christmas lunch after work...
The real thing... on the afternoon of the 23rd he started feeling wrong and I was feeling kind of "strange" myself... my poor little boyfriend was at 101.12ºF on Christmas Eve's morning and, of course, I didn't let him take his car for a 4.5 hours drive. he felt horrible during the day and we had dinner at my parent's with them my mother's mom and a friend of mine who doesn't have any relatives and was alone at home.
From left to right, up and down, Jose and I, my parents and I, my grandma and I, my friend Vicente and I
On Christmas morning I went to work at 8am and was feeling "weak" all the time; I talked on the phone to Jose and still had fever. I had lunch at my parents' but he couldn't. I spent the evening sleepy on the coach... by 10.30pm I was at 101.48ºF and had to phone the supervisor at the hospital where I'm working.
On Friday, the two of us were feeling miserable and went to the doctor; we've been home since then... fever, cough, headache, bodyache, dizzyness,... family worried,... but I think it's almost over :o)
I'm not on duty till next Jan 2nd, so I hope I'll be 100% again.
Well, before the viruses caught us, I received a few packages which brightened up my life :o) Enjoy!!!
One more thing!! I've been playing around with PS lately and I've learned how to use brushes (thanksMireia!) and .png files :o)
Well, I hope I start the New Year in a better shape... and I also hope I can get my hands on my new stuff soonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
A big hug and good luck!!!!
P.S. I must admit I've cheated a little bit... I'm posting this on 12.31.2008, 12.30pm, but I had it almost ready and wanted to keep it at the same posted time than my blog in Spanish, I hope you don't mind!!
Yes, yesterday I received my very first Xmas card from a USA scrapper friend :o) So I've decided that this is the best moment to update my blog, it's been so long!
Last Dec 1st, Shimelle's class started, as I wrote about it in previous posts. I haven't done so much stuff for my journal but I've been taking notes, gathering stuff, taking some pics, etc Love it!! I'll post the pages as soon as I make them...
Through its forum I knew that a fellow scrapper, Susanne, was "cleaning" her christmashy stuff and was giving away two Xmas scrapbooking kits in her blog... I won one!!!! I'm still waiting for the package, but between bank holidays in Spain on Dec 6th and 8th, and Spanish post office system... I'm so excited!!
I'm also waiting for Karine Cazenave's last mini albums book (she's a French artist). I've bought it to Mireia (Spanish artist and friend) who I've helped to clear out her house of scrapbooking stuff through her "little market", again! :oD
I've done some more shopping too. I've ordered a few clear acrylic stamps from A Cherry On Top (just a few to minimize the shipping costs) and a few more items from a Spanish online store, Creatividades, I'll finally have a heat embossing gun!! I'll post some pics as soon as I have my stuff...
Last Thur, Dec 4th, my boyfriend and I received our new living room furniture, finally!! We still have the chairs left since they forgot to make them, ? Pics to come...
Last weekend, Dec 5-7, we visited my boyfriend's family in Almeria, in the South of Spain. It was a short visit since I was on double shift on Mon 8th but, since my work schedule for the rest of the season is so busy, I won't be able to go down there till the end of Jan at least. That's the main reason why our Xmas tree is not out yet...
Yesterday I went Xmas shopping with my mom... to "El Corte Inglés"!!! (a very fashion and pricey department store) I still can't believe she asked me to go LOL We never go there but it's not really that pricey and the customer service is excellent.
Well, I think that's it for today. Gotta go to fix lunch.
I hope everyone is doing great and enjoying the Season.

I knew about Scrapbooking in the USA, back in 98/99. I was on and off for a few years till I decided to give it a try again in Oct 05. I’m not making too much stuff lately but I feel great when I let my creativity fly. You can check some of my projects in my Flickr page following the link below… feel free to make any comment…
