Thank you so much to everyone that left comments on the last two posts. I put all your names in a hat this morning and I picked out :
Nikki from Ninnynoodlenoo. Hooray and Congratulations - the bundle of felted jumpers goes to you and
and having just had a quick look at your blog Nikki I think you deserve it after having had a child be sick down your back and in your hair. Poor You. Please let me have your address so I can pop the bundle in the post to you asap.
So, one week left to the big day. It's odd this year in our household because we're not hosting Christmas. Instead it's my sister's turn to have us and we're going off on Christmas Eve and returning on 27th. I'm really looking forward to the break, the no cooking, relaxing by the fire, not being responsible etc but it does mean that there is a different atmosphere in our house this year. Normally I'd have lists as long as your arm, bags of food crammed everywhere, menus for everyday, meals pre-cooked, bedding to wash, etc etc. All I have to do this time is think of what to cook on Boxing Day and I think Amber wants to do that anyway. So I'm fairly relaxed and free you might say. Sadly, I think I thrive on frenetic activity so it's a bit of a learning curve for me this year!
Anyway, guess where I'm off to in an hour? The Dentist!!!
About six months ago I was told that I needed a filling and or a re-filling as it were. I made two appointmentsand cancelled them and then last week that blooming filling fell out and now I have to go and get it done as I have a gaping hole on the left side of my mouth.
I'm kinda thinking that I should have it done when the Dentist suggested it. Serves me right I suppose.
I'm going to leave you with two pics of a lantern that I treated myself too last week:
It has a lamp inside and a revolving star and different images on each side:
It's so beautiful all lit up in the evening ....................................
