Happy Christmas

Happy happy happy Christmas !

I hope everyone has had a very happy time full of love, cheer and the odd glass (or 3) of champagne.

Santa brought me the coveted tripod - so operation outfit is a go for the new year. I managed to take these pictures of my tree (but none of my family- doh !)

Colour theme - variations on silver and purple - with a hint of green.

We went to see 'the girl with the dragon tattoo' last night - and it was pretty darn good (other than a few parts where the old hands went over the eyes !) We were lucky to have got in as my 18 year old brother forgot his passport so we were all for swapping the tickets for Sherlock Holmes, until the cinema dude took pity after seeing our gutted faces and let us in - YAY !

I have leaked a few tears today as my mum and little brother left for their respective homes. I don't get to see them that often as the road system is not that great in North Devon, and most places, although not difficult to get to, usually take quite some time in terms of hours (and cost lots in diesel!).

When I was a kid, every time I left my granddad's house, he would always be crying over a bowl of washing up (to hide his tears). I seem to have taken on that tradition (sans the bowl to hide over) which is more than a little embarrassing seeing as I am a thirty something woman about town !

I made both my mum and little brother infinity scarves but did not get pictures of either the finished scarves or them wearing them. Friends I have knitted 3 scarves in the last 6 weeks and have given myself sore wrists in the process, I will not be knitting for a few weeks to come ! Lol, its quite funny that I have injured myself  making knitted Xmas gifts !!

Oh well, I hope you have all had the most wonderful of Christmases, and are looking forward now to a fresh New Year.

A clean slate with which to redesign the story of life.

People, look after each other and love and live life to the absolute maximum that you can. Take a moment to reflect on what makes you happy and decide that 2012 is going to be your year to make it happen.

On that note I am off to watch the 'Wizard of Oz' - man I LOVE that film.

With much festive love,

  1. Oh, your poor, sweet granddad! I am something of a stealth weeper-- I never, NEVER cried as a kid, but now I go to pieces at every parting (and every movie, and every semi-sad commercial!) and I'm constantly trying to find ways to hide my tears! Ah, well, what can you do? I'm just glad I'm not the only one with a soft heart. :)

  2. I know - bless him right ? :-) He was such a sweet man. I am the same, I cry as do you with partings, films, TV programmes, commercials, requests for charity (list could go on but I'll stop there !) Sometimes it is embarrassing being a softie - but I wouldn't change it for the world ! Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing what you make in 2012 ! xx
