Happy Christmas!

To all my buddies and anyone else who happens across this page.

Here's a piccie of my wee Toyah in her new bed - her Xmas pressie! We still miss Thai but we're starting to find our own little twosome routines. I just wish her sleeping on my chest and announcing everytime she gets back on the bed during the night weren't two of them!
Here's hoping that 2008 brings all that you could possibly wish for!

It's Official ..............

the days will now start getting longer again - HURRAAYYYY!!!!

I detest the dark winter months, guess as a Leo, which is the only star sign ruled by the sun, I shouldn't be surprised.

Well been busy getting last minute shopping, so other than beverages and one to two lil things I'm officially done.

I wish I could claim to have taken this pic but I can't. I have been at Maher Point in the Grand Canyon at sunrise and it was freezing - but it certainly looks very very pretty.

I Feel Blessed!

Well with friends like these ............................ what else do you need!??

I've just finished making a lil album for my best friend as part of her Xmas pressie (i'll try and take some pics and add them later). How lucky am I? We've been friends for 33 years now, never fallen out, been there through our marriages, her children (to whom I'm godmother), divorces and the good and bad parts of being single ladies of a certain age. I love her to bits and just hope that I have given her half of what she has given me!

Then just a couple of days ago I got these beautiful roses from my Jelly Baby team mates and friends on UKScrappers, for no other reason that they wanted to give me something to smile about! Now you have to realise that apart from one lovely meeting with Ra Ra, these are still "virtual" online friends. I so hope that we get to meet up in person during 2008 - what a special bunch of ladies (and lil squirt!).
So see I am truely blessed - there are a number of others who aren't necessarily mentioned here (the entry gang for example - you know who you are lol!!) but I have so many truely good and thoughtful friends that I am a lucky woman!
Love you all xoxoxoxox

Get some Therapy!!

Well at least it feels like therapy at the moment that's for sure. I had fun playing with this one. Signed up for a Deco swap on UKScrappers, the theme was Christmas and I've to send my page to Caz, in Queensland, Australia! I hope she likes it - first time i've attempted the more altered type of page although I've played with canvases and wooden shapes ohh and my plaster cast too.

Other than that, been trying hard to find Xmas spirit (not the bottled type), did manage to book turkey and veg etc., and have put tree up, so just the pressies to get. There will some t'internet shopping and stuff bought locally, other than that I couldn't face the whole busy city thing.

Toyah and I are still adjusting to Thai not being around. She is certainly a whole different lil puddycat that's for sure but she is such a sweetie!

Hanging in there

just keeping myself busy trying to get on and do stuff around the house. Have half made some Xmas cards and done a couple of CJ entries that were well overdue. I signed up for a Deco swop too so will have some R&R (rest and relaxation) doing that.

I was so surprised to get some Christmas cards last week, thinking why on earth are people posting these so early but then I realised I kind of lost a few weeks. No food ordered, no shopping done, nothing so I really need to get my ass in gear! Looks like most of it will have to be done online.

To top it all I have more car problems - must see about a trade-in in the new year.

Season spirit .............. come find me!
