We had a wonderful day with 10 of us for dinner (+bump) and there was enough food cooked to feed an army ...and we are still munching our way through the goodies soooo please make a cuppa and help yourselves :)
I am feeling a wee bit better thanks ... cough still here, but not as often as it has been sooo hopefully it is on its way out, she says paws crossed ... the voice still sounds bad but hey, its good job I wasn't needed to sing any carols this year ....
At the weekend DH and I took a quick road trip to Blackpool to see my Dad and we nearly didn't get there due to the snow fall on the previous night ..... the journey over normally takes us 2 hours ish well you could double it this time ... the views of the snowfall were fantastic but I didn't have my camera with me only my phone sooo please excuse the naffness of them ...lol
I even managed to go and shop in a closed sewing shop .... DH and I bobbed up to Marsh Mill to see if Grace and Favour was open ...and it wasn't but Caroline and her DH was in and they opened up just for little ole moi ... how cool was that ...lol I just had to buy a few things as you do, well I could't leave empty handed now could I heheheheh....
The journey home was a little quicker than the journey in so that was good ... its amazing how so little snow can cause so much disruption especially when the council are on the Christmas break and no gritter vans go out until a few days later *sigh .... the journey into work today was not too bad the -3 degrees on the dash board was a wee bit disconcerting ... but the views with the sun coming up were amazing ... such a pity I can't stop to take a photo ...lol
Stitching wise I have done a wee bit more on Frosty Flakes .... well done Jane ... and can show you the progress ....I will have to do a recap on New Years Eve once I have dug out my trusty note book with everything in it I have stitched for the year ...
I have received some lovely gifts and want to thank every one for their cards as well ... I am sorry that I haven't sent out as many as I normally do due to being ill for so long but hoping to make up for it in the new year with some little RAKs being sent out :)
well I had better go and bob the kettle on for one last brew before bed and I will sort the photos out for you to nosy at :)
