Truly I can’t show my desk – buried under the piles of cards, letters, notes, including ones to send here – so look, I’m tackling another jigsaw, bought by a friend from a charity shop (we’ll see if all the pieces are there – eventually!).  It’s very festive ‘Toyshop at Christmas’, and is a sort of break from all the writing cards and addressing envelopes… Sifting out the straight edges – now I know to turn the pieces over as the plain back is a clearer contrast to the table. It’s a different type of challenge and works other parts of my brain.desk-001.JPG Overseen by my beautiful hellebore – a favourite flower to which I treated myself last week while visiting a favourite local(ish) town. THE Christmas flower, I think 🙂 Not a great photo, as it’s a grey day so the very bright overhead light is on.helle-001 Sharing the love with other deskers here.

PS I am now taking a blogging break until the New Year, but I will visit as many desks as possible this week. Wishing you all a wonderful festive season with friends and family, and I will see you in 2019 ❤ ❤ ❤cones-001

  3. Morning Claire. Have spent ages following all the links in your lovely post this morning. Well done – you must go to bed absolutely exhausted each night after challenging your brain in so many different ways. That is incredibly brave! Your jigsaw is lovely – and not an easy one – but it doesn’t matter how long it takes to complete, you’ll get there by your spirit of perseverance. That hellebore is great – I have several in my garden, and recently bought a lovely yellowy-white one – just need the rain to stop at some point, so I can plant it out!! Didn’t realise you lived near(ish) the town in your link. Might see you there some time.
    Take care. Have a special Christmas celebrating the birth of our Saviour. God bless.

  4. I’m shivering at the thought of starting my cards Claire. Not something I particularly enjoy.
    I’ve enjoyed looking at your hellebore though it’s lovely.

  5. The Hellebore really is a splendid Flower.
    Wishing you a blessed Christmas & a very Happy New Year if I do not get chance to wish it all to you before they both arrive and have fun with the jigsaw, such a chilled out activity to take your mind off all that unfinished Christmas business.

  9. I wish you lived close so I could work on your puzzle with you. I love puzzles. 300 pieces are great 500 is a real challenge but with help I enjoy them. Your flowers are lovely. I had one in the ground years ago but I managed to kill it! They are exquisite. Have a happy holiday and I’ll see you in the new year!
