Good morning Everybody!
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are now ready to party through the New Year festivities! Well I must report that I have safely (although a bit bumpy) arrived to Stansted and am now writing this from Maidstone Kent! So no desk for me! I will be travelling to The Cotswolds today where I will be spending New Years Eve but also having a look around Bristol and Bath! I hope all goes well and we don't get stuck in any traffic jam as we did on Monday when we were driving home from the airport! We sat in the car for an hour and then the police directed us up a slip road, stopped the traffic and let us go another direction, otherwise we probably would have sat there till morning - there was obviosly some bad accident and they couldn't clear the road! Poor people who had such bad luck during the holidays!
Well to give you a short update on all the rest of the goings on... I had a lovely Christmas with my mom, my daughter and my brothers family - I cooked a big meal and we ate, chatted and after dinner my brother took out the guitar and we sang carols and also other songs ( that we could remember the words of ha, ha) It was a fun day! My daughter came over the next day and stayed with me and mom all day so we had a bit of a craft session - not making cards, but teaching my daughter a few knitting tricks .....here is my beloved daughter and mom figuring out how to knit a sock.....
We had a fun day!
I got some lovely presents - also some crafty ones - my daughter got me a voucher for the craft shop that opened in our city so when I come back from England I will be rushing over there - ha, ha that doesn't mean I won't grab a few items here in England ....
I am lucky to have 2 Christmases - one at home and one here in England....I got some lovely presents under the Christmas tree here too and yesterday I was treated to a shopping day at Bluewater - my DBF is sooo good to me! I got a lovely new coat, a new dress for New Years Eve and for the first time in my life I had my bra fitted - ladies if you haven't had that done before you should! I now own a bra (actually 3) that fits perfectly, ha, ha I feel like a right Dolly Parton!!!!!
So my dear friends you are now up to date with all the news, I will report more when I get back!
Wishing you all a lovely NEW YEARS EVE and lots and lots of health, happiness and love in 2011!!!!!
Hugs to all of you
