Don't get me wrong, its not half as bad as anticipated living in a child free house, Herb and I get on just fine, better than that in fact. We enjoy each others company and yet we give each other space and please ourselves , me with my sewing and stuff......him with running golf etc etc. The house is cleaner, tidier, cheaper to run but we do miss them!! Anyhow to the end of all that negativity and onward.
Christmas was fab! the girls were home and we enjoyed our usual indulgent day; bucks fizz with breakfast, smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels for 2 and bacon sandwiches for 2.......roast beef et al......a family movie, girls kept there onesies on(those all in one things from a certain cheap shop here in the UK)....purrrfect.... next 2 days reserved for family stuff, all good this year.
I made quilts for pressies.......4 in all,and a couple of cushions so I guess that kept me busy in the latter part of the year. All well received especially the Grinch quilt by youngest.
this for eldest
this for friends(well a version of as I forgot to take snap!)
this for youngest
cushions for friends
this for niece
loved it ...so much more pleasurable than shopping!
also i have a new toy......
the old phone died on me annoyingly a couple of days before Christmas so egged on by youngest I got one of these......welcome to the 21st century said my pals......wasn't sure at first, but am hooked. Got flickr, blogger and pinterest apps. let me know of any other really useful ones.....
be back very soon x
