About Me

I'm 57 years old, working full time, wife, mother and grand mother, wishing that I wasn't working full time! I love and enjoy our children and grandchildren, our dogs and cat, our garden and allotment. I love crafts - knitting, sewing, crocheting, patchwork and restoring old furniture. I love to go to country auctions and love thinking that I've got my self a bargain!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone

Are you already for the big day? I am now, pretty much, despite having had the flu recently, which meant that I finished work a day earlier than I'd planned - it also meant that I missed seeing my Grand Daughter be Angel Gabriel in the Christmas nativity but there was no way I could have gone - it was a really nasty bug that knocked me off my feet. My poor hubby is suffering now and it has infected his left eye which has swollen up terribly. We spent yesterday morning at the NHS drop in centre obtaining anti-biotics for him.

I don't know whether it's because we've both felt so rough but there seems to be a real distinct lack of Christmas spirit everywhere - I haven't heard many Xmas records in the supermarkets, or seen any Xmas films this year. It felt more Christmassy around the end of November, beginning of December.

We spent a lovely Saturday morning at Weston Park at the beginning of the month at their Christmas Fair, it was good last year, but even better this year and was well worth the £1 entrance fee to walk round. The gardens were beautiful even at this time of the year

We are lucky having this on our door step -  just a shame that they have to hold the dreaded V Festival here every year.

I finally found the white Christmas tree that I was after for the lounge

The fireplace has been decorated with a white feather boa and white china angels - My daughter in law brought me the glass baubles


I hope everyone has a very Happy Peaceful Christmas - we are off to spend Christmas Day with my 3 year old and 6 year old Grand Daughters so it will be very special for us
