Blog Candy

A lovely CB friend Eve is offering Blog Candy in aid of her 50th Birthday/hitting over 4000 hits. Please visit her lovely blog here for more info.


This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!
These blogs are exceedingly charming.
These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.
Please give more attention to these writers!
Deliver this award to eight bloggers who then must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
I am passing it on to these lovely people for their wonderful blogs and the hand of friendship they have held out to me :
Natalie, Jackie, Sarah, Aims, Eve, Louise, Karen, and Beverley

Hand crafted christmas cards received

I really enjoyed making my own christmas cards this year (see my makes for pics) but I have enjoyed receiving hand crafted cards from others even more.

Bottom to top: Thank you Maritrez (card and ATC), lozabeth, Freehartz, littleme, partygirl and last but not least Barbara19 (card and adorable reindeer charm)

Thank you ladies they are fab.

Christmas is Coming!!!

I love this time of year and as usual couldn't wait to put up our christmas tree.

Here's a pic of our lovely tree - work has been manic lately and I have been working loads of extra hours (hence why I haven't updated on here in ages1) so it's great when all the christmas lights are on and i'm snuggled up in my chair watching TV!

It's even better now (after 16months of waiting) to have my gas back on and have a lovely warm house and the ability to use my oven and hob!!
