So here we are on the doorstep of another Christmas! It really does not seem to be anytime since last year! As you can see all that is missing from the advent calander is 'Baby Jesus'.
It has been cold and frosty and we have been out for some lovely walks. This morning was particuarly entertaining as our road was better than an Ice Rink! Torville & Dean eat your heart out! These are some pics K took with her digital camera Even though the girls are home it has been particuarly quiet, why? Well K is writing an assignment and T is studying! They both decided that if they wanted Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day off they had to work all days before!
Merry Christmas to you all, if you are travelling stay safe, if you are at home enjoy, remember its just a roast dinner with crackers! I shall raise my glass to absent friends at mid-day on Christmas Day.
I am a stay at home mum, due to a daughter with Neurological Diversity! I am too busy to get bored and how people fit in work I'll never know! I craft, sewing, knitting and anything else that takes my fancy. I garden and have dug up part of my garden for veg patches! I now have two greenhouses both heated! Plus a new jungle bed which I started 2007! This has really captured my imagination to the extent that I now own 30 Brugmansia Bushes/Trees and many other beautiful Exotic Plants, so join me and see what mischief I get up to whilst home alone!!!
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me. And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter. I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells And run my stick along the public railings And make up for the sobriety of my youth. I shall go out in my slippers in the rain And pick the flowers in other people's gardens And learn to spit. You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat And eat three pounds of sausages at a go Or only bread and pickle for a week And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes. But now we must have clothes that keep us dry And pay our rent and not swear in the street And set a good example for the children. We must have friends to dinner and read the papers. But maybe I ought to practice a little now? So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple. by Jenny Joseph found here http://www.tonya.me.uk/fun/warning.asp
