Christmas Review

Hello friends

How was your Christmas? 
Mine was lovely and full of so many wonderful things to eat including lots of chocolate
so as you can imagine I am a happy girl.
My gifts were perfect and included smellies, a beautiful candle in a antique tea cup,
wine, notebook, an electric blanket (oh yes, I'm definitely middle aged now!)

I also received a milk frother - I can now make wonderful milky coffee/latte at home.

But here is one very unhappy girl...
Bella could not understand why her stocking wasn't full again on Boxing Day! 
  She kept checking....
Elliott was able to join in nearly everything but had a few naps to keep going.  
The days went by far too quickly but I am pleased that 2014 is now only just around 
the corner - I want to send 2013 away for sure!
As mentioned, I will be announcing new classes, plans for the shop and getting leaks sorted 
(one at home now as well as the shop, leaks follow me!)

I do hope none of you were affected by the terrible storms, I need new fencing and
dustbin lids so came off very lightly compared to many.

Take care friends and I will be back soon.

Hi Christine. So glad that you had a good Christmas with lots of lovely goodies, and that Elliott managed to join in. Bellas face is a picture, bless her :) Up until now we have got off very lightly here, even lighter than you Christine (not another leak!) It is VERY stormy again today though so fingers are firmly crossed :( Stay safe everyone. Take care.

Morning Christine,
So pleased that you had a good Christmas sounds like you had some lovely presents. Bet Elliot was pleased to have a couple of hospital free days. You poor thing another leak can fully understand you wanting the year to finish.
Bella look so cute.

Morning Christine, So glad you had a good Christmas, and helped that you had 2 days off !! I know you will be glad to say 'bye bye' to 2013, and now another leak, at home this time, hope it isn't too bad.
Great piccie of Bella with her stocking, her face says it all !!
Elliott will be counting the days down now, huge hugs to you all.
I'm trying to sort my craft room today, yesterday I managed to sort all the 'cut offs' of paper and card into my bit box, today it is the turn of the stamps, they are everywhere haha !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Morning Christine!
So pleased you had a good Christmas!
Looking at Bella reminds me of my boys when they were little, every day after Christmas because the decs were still up, they expected Father Christmas to come again!
Pleased that Elliott was able to join in makes it better for you!
I have a leak too, but that's from a roof that cost me £8,500 in 2012, so not pleased about that!
Any way Christine have a happy New Year.
Love Marg

Morning Christine. Glad you all had a lovely time, Bella looks confused at an empty stocking. We also had water coming thru the ceiling due to the storms, the slates are back on and dehumidifier going. But I really feel for those who are still without electric and flooded. I wish you all esp Elliott all the best for the new year. Emma

Glad you had a good Christmas Christine, I've eaten far to much too, and there is still so much left over that I won't be able to diet until it's all gone. It's been extremely windy here overnight, but I haven't found any damage, though I too found a leak in the porch (flat roof) that I hope isn't going to be too expensive to fix.

So glad everyone had a good Christmas. The photo's of Bella are really wonderful. Such a sorrowful face! We had a tile down, but cannot see yet where from, but not as bad as my brother and his wife, they were flooded out on Christmas Eve. Keep Safe, Valerie

Morning Christine,
Glad you enjoyed your Christmas, and Bella's face is a picture. Our dog Misty just loves ripping the paper from presents and helps everyone with theirs. We sometimes rewrap things just so she can open them again. Lets hope 2014 is good year for you all.

Hi Christine. So glad you all had a good Christmas. Love the electric blanket, love mine even though you wouldn't think I'd need it in Spain!!
Lovely photos of Bella. Gracie was more interested in ripping paper than she was with her presents.
So sad for everyone that was caught up in the terrible storms. do hope all your problems are sorted out soon.
Keep safe everyone.
Love Val x
