Happy Christmas Wishes

Happy Wishes to Everyone this Christmas - here is a corner of our home. Paper snow flakes cost nothing, are relaxing to make - and are always the prettiest decorations we put up. New white tree this year -very pretty with its bright baubles.

Peace for all.

Good day

Had a lovely day today - wasn't at work because it was Georgia's school play. She was a singing pink fairy light. She kept waving at me which was lovely. Submitted my tax return online. Phew. Only took a little while, but I don't really "do" numbers and I get all stressed about it. Cully was off today too, so it was nice to spend some time just hanging out with him. Got the mail off to America this afternoon - though it might be to late for pre Christmas delivery. Hopefully not. Lena (above) is on a diet and it is working slowly. She was 16 in November and still as shy as she was as a kitten. She is a sweet little presence in this home - we all love her dearly. If I can ever get a good photo, I'll post an image of the peg ballerinas that Georgia and I made last week. Finally, have enjoyed wearing a new denim skirt from Monsoon that Cully bought me. It is aline and swing-y and comfortable and will go with everything - just perfect.

Apologies for the mixed up post, but Christmas preparation makes my head spin and this is a good representation of how I have to keep changing "subjects" during my day.

Praying for my sweet Aunt Mary Jane's speedy recovery from a heart attack. Love to you MJ.

This little piggie

Georgia drew this to give to one of my friends for her birthday. Thought better of giving a "pig in a bikini" in that birthday parcel. There is a great Geordie saying..."what ya trying to say, like," which would have applied.

Have had a cold and sore throat this week, but carried on with a million things anyway. Went for pizza on Thanksgiving night. Georgia coughed the entire time, so we came home with headaches. Went to see/hear my favorite radio show being recorded on Sunday night. Mike and I went together (no child!). I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is a silly panel game chaired by a terrific man called Humphrey Littleton. He is 85, still records this show and tours with his jazz band (he plays trumpet). And I was delighted to learn is a caligrapher and president of the Italic Handwriting Society. I wasn't aware that there was an Italic Handwriting Society, so I must look that up. Thursday night, my gallery group hosted a ceilidh (barn dance) which was fun, but I was an hour late because it took 2 and a half hours to drive the 8 miles home from work. Apparantly there was an accident on the Tyne Bridge. Today I finished the Christmas shopping after having a hair cut. Tonight we went to the GLOW festival in the Park. The walkways were lit with torches, the mansion there was lit with pink and there was a shadow play in the windows with the story read over loud speakers (love our park and the things our local council provides there.) Tomorrow, Caroline and I are off to check out a crafts market, then Georgia and I are going to have a crafts afternoon. Then back to work on Monday. Life is full, but the Christmas shopping is done- Hooray!!!!!!
