Hello my friends. I’m hoping this will work – as word press seem to have altered all sorts, and quite frankly, I’m up the proverbial creek without a paddle!!! I am writing this Tuesday lunchtime before I head off to Nottingham for my grand daughter’s concert this evening. I’ll schedule it and it will be linked up by someone else – many thanks!!! So, here we are – the last post before Christmas 2018. I’m writing this to the accompaniment of a Carol CD – wonderful – there is something about the harmonies of Christmas music which isn’t found the rest of the year – no idea what it is!!
Well, my desk is showing definite signs of activity this week. There’s the mess on the floor and the overflowing waste bin to prove it!!! My Advent tree – nearly denuded of chocolate; a pile of card to finish the current project – some little desk notebook holders – glue, scissors, some photographs of our family holiday in Mull ready to be cut up for the rest of the holders.
More activity this week! My family are all receiving money this year – it’s what they all wanted – and I felt it was boring not to have their present under the tree, so set to with a tonic die and made these lovely 11inch high boxes for their gift. These are for all the ladies…
…and these are for all the gentlemen! A friend who is a stamping up demonstrator decided to brave the world of You tube, and this was her second video. Thought I’d try them out! Her first video was the desk notebook holder – which, needless to say, I didn’t follow the exact instructions for!!!

Well, I reckon I’m showing my age! This hasn’t been an easy post to put together due to all the changes – I’m afraid I stick to the adage that if a thing ain’t broken don’t fix it!!! However…
May you each have a special and precious time this Christmas season. May you know the joy and peace which only the Saviour of the World can bring as He came into this world torn apart with hatred and anger. I will not be posting on Boxing Day as I shall be back in Nottingham with ALL the family – all 10 of us together – brilliant, noisy fun!
Take care, my friends, travel safely if driving to friends and family – see you for WOYWW500 in the New Year – 2019 – however did we get there?
God bless you.
