Goodness it has been 5 months since I last wrote, it has been such a busy 5 months, I hope you are all well and happy and have had a very lovely Christmas.
We had Christmas here again, but this time my eldest son, who is a chef, cooked the Christmas lunch here for us…..9 of us, it was lovely and there are left overs, which means I don’t have to cook for a couple of days…he did a great job in my dodgy oven and dodgy hotplates. Only parts of both work, so it is always a hit and miss to make sure food cooks on time and cooks without burning 😦 I am going to ask if the oven and hotplates can be replaced next year.
I have settled into this home and am very happy here, the landlord is great and slowly over the past 6 months has fixed or replaced things. My work has expanded to 4 full days and next year for a while I will be working 4.5 days a week as the work share girl left just before Christmas and we may not replace her, it has loaded up my working days somewhat, although I don’t mind too much, makes the day more interesting and goes quick.
I have been crafting a bit when my eyes and tiredness allow, have done some embroidery, cross-stitch, knitting and crochet in the past few months….
A little cross stitch for the ever so lovely Cuckoo
We had a very girlie High Tea here a few months ago, with family and extended family, we had a lovely day chatting and laughing. I went around all the charity shops for months prior and bought lots of vintage cups, saucers and matching plates, serviettes and table cloths, I had so much fun looking for them, the anticipation of finding something beautiful in every shop….
New Spring life, that little hole in the dirt was home to tiny little baby birds called Silvereyes, I could hear tiny teeny little cheeps, so sweet.
Two days before Christmas I received this lot of wonderful gifts from the ever so gorgeous Cuckoo such a generous girl is cuckoo.
Hope you and all your loved ones are having a lovely Christmas break, much love from me xoxo
