Today is sad

Today my friends has been one of the most saddest days of my life, my friend Leah a new mum of only 4 weeks has lost her little baby girl Phoebe Poppy. I was asked to be a surrogate nanny for her as she is not in contact with her mum, of course I said yes and felt very honoured to be asked.

Phoebe was beautiful and dainty like her mum, we are all very upset here in Lincoln, it has put a damper on the festive season for us all.

I would just like to say that God has taken a beautiful young child to sit by his side for now and always.

Well hello there

Well hi everyone, its been a while, but I have not been doing nothing. In fact I have been very busy, I have made lots more baubles for friends and family, and finished making the baubles for Cancer Research, I have only 2 left at work to sell, so far I have made about £130 for this good cause, shall have to get my thinking head on for my next project.

I have now got my craft room up and running and all Christmasy as well, the tree is up and dressed, my decorations go back 32 years for some of them, and my angle is only 4" high and she is 30 years old, I have recovered her since then, but Gemma and Dave wont let me buy a new one, even thought she is lost on the tree, I shall take some photos and post them next time.

This year we are going to Maxines for Christmas day, and we are not having the traditional turkey we are having Indian, its all cooked and ready in the freezer, hubby is a brill cook so I have left it to them, really looking forward to it, I only have that day off work so shall make the most of it.
I have been catching up with old friends and new ones thru cards and the internet, it has been fun. I shall sign off now so till the next take care and have a lovely weekend.

A saying for Christmas

There's magic in the air again for Christmas time is here.
There's happiness in every heart and all the season's cheer.
There's a special kind of joy that's part of Christmas too.
The joy of wishing all that's best, especially for you my friends.

With love at this special time

Craft Room

Well my dear fellow bloggers, I must say how lovely it is when I go for a read on everyones site. Real inspriation reading about you all.

The other week I lost all my focus on things, so hubby did me a craft room (previously shown) and do you know what I am now never out of it. Once tea is over and I have watched Emmerdale, well thats it off I toddle into my room, switch on the radio, I listen to Smooth 106.6, its fantastic, it reaches over the country, and from 8pm its Andy Peables, and the music is so varied, 60's, 70's, Mowtown to name a few, he is on till midnight, and guess what I actually sat up last night making a new bauble till the midnight hour, it was fantastic lol.

I have got a thing about pretty boxes so this morning I went out with my granddaughter and friend Tara, and I picked up 3 different size boxes, black and pink, with flowers and flutterbys, they are scrummy, what I will put in the I don't know but they look lovely. Tara then cooked me lunch, poached salmon, new pots, baby sweetcorn and mange tout, with a lovely Herby sauce, nothing was left on my plate!!!! I do love fish as does Tara, but both partners are not that keen, fish and chips fine but anything more refined or different no chance. Next Tuesday the 2 of us are going to the new Japanese restaurant in town, so watch this space for the comments.

Well my lovelies, I shall sign off for tonight and get back to my beading, tatty bye for now.

Time to enjoy

Today has been very enjoyable, I went to my craft afternoon and my niece Tina came and joined us for half and hour, Tina is going to Queens Medical (Nottingham) in January to train as a nurse and this was her chance to see everyone before she goes, so we spent a lovely afternoon with her.

Today I also learnt how to make a decoration out of material and a polystyrene ball, something I have wanted to learn for a while, it was easier than I thought, now all I have to do is buy some Christmas material and edgings and I shall be well away.

On the home front, I have not really been in a crafty mood until last night, when I managed to make a new bauble, in red and gold, its looking good, so now I am back focused, and my new craft room is so lovely to use, I don't have to pack things away when the grand kiddies come round, and can sit there till my hearts content. I light my candles and put on the radio so its heaven.
