Well the tree is up, the garland is on the mantle and the reindeer and the sleigh are on the roof, the brasses are all shining and we are all lit for Christmas. I still have packing and lots of sewing to do but the house looks so nice & cosy now all i want to do is sit by the fire and watch Christmas movies, but alas i know i can't.We had some disturbing news on Monday that the firm my husband, son & son-in-law work for have been given 30 days notice that there are to be redundancies on the 5Th January when they return to work. The future looks a bit bleak but we are determined not to let it put a damper on Christmas, its about what you have got, not what you haven't got and we have each other.Well on to a lighter note, my sewing ? At the moment i am making cone angels from the Sew Pretty Home style book one of my favorites, i will show you the completed ones when i am finished, just a sneak preview of them for now, it feels like my own little cottage industry here as i couldn't resist, just making more and more, a couple are for a friend she asked me to make her some, the rest will be presents, if i can bare to part with them. I thought i would introduce the youngest member of our family this is Maisy Grace the best present a daughter could give her mom she was born on my birthday and i was there to see her come into this world , we might not have much money but we are very rich in grand children seven in total.
I just wish I had a computer know how like the rest of you, at the moment i rely on the help of my lovely 14 year old daughter Lauren, i think she is quite the whizz on the computer, i know my way around eBay and web sites but this blogging and putting pictures on is a bit beyond me yet, but i am determined to learn about all be it slowly.
