Merry Christmas

I just wanted to wish everyone A Very Merry Christmas, hope you all have a wonderful day.

Things here haven't quite gone to plan, My Daughter Nicola was supposed to be cooking Christmas dinner this year but broke her arm on the ice and my daughter-in-law Rhiannon is going to be spending Christmas in Hospital nothing to serious we hope, she has very bad tonsillitis and as she can't keep anything down including the antibiotics, considering she has diabetes they have decided that it is the best place for her, so they can look after her properly.

Hope you all have a safe Christmas.

We don't get snow here very often but when it does the country grinds to a halt, this is what we found this morning. Not very deep here but the rest of the country has had worse. And there's more to come.

Just to let you know I'm still here.

sorry I haven't blogged for such a long time, I could say that I was too busy but that would be a lie, My MOJO has gone to the North Pole, or the cold weather has frozen my brain, well the creative side any way.
The other day I tidied up and put away all my Xmas card making stash, so no more Xmas cards this year. Although I love making them, and made about 60 this year I have had enough, think I started too early, in August I think.

We are spending Christmas Day at my daughter's house and spending the night there too, so I am looking forward to that, then on the Sunday my Son and his family are coming to stay for 3 days, so then it will be one big round of brewing up and cooking.

Well at least I can rest after Christmas, in January we are off to the Algarve for 2 weeks, so looking forward to that, if I can find anything to fit me that is. every thing is far too big, that's the problem with losing so much weight. but a small price to pay with feeling healthy and looking slimmer. Might have to hit the sales.

Hugs Carol x

I made some calendars as small gifts for some members of my family and thought I would share them with you today. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
