Dear me..

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….

tn_IMG_20131124_184803We 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….

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
