You would think that when you retire there would be plenty of time for everything. WRONG..... my DH and I are going away to Cardiff for a week for a christening and staying with friends. Looking forward to the christening such a happy occasion. Smashing shops in Cardiff so maybe some shopping as well. So because we shall be away I am trying to get everything up to date, gardening, housework and even trying to get some bits in for Christmas. I have finished my Christmas exchange I just have to pack it up and post it off.
Moaning over. I can now show a photo of the exchange I received from Marjorie, I was so thrilled with it. I can't show a photo of the Christmas exchange yet.
Confession Time - I have been into Marks and Spencers and bought my Christmas cake, I know I am a lazy so and so for not making one, but I shall do everything else. The cake has been iced so I don't even have to do that.
June's club had their Christmas meal out last Tuesday, we had a lovely meal, I couldn't eat all mine so I had a doggy bag. The only trouble is I don't have a dog so guess who ate it up. I did take some photos but as the lighting was so poor in the restaurant they are not very good. I will try to do better at our party next week. We have great fun at the meetings lots of laughter and banter, whilst we are producing some lovely stitch work.
I bought some wool to crochet a blanket, but I couldn't remember how to do it, so I go onto Youtube to follow a video. There I am crochet hook poised, wool held in my left hand, computer on and running, but I just couldn't keep up with the instructions, I nearly threw my hook and wool out of the window swiftly followed by the PC. June has kindly offered to show me (after Christmas) what to do.
Whilst I am in Cardiff I shall be taking photos to show you what I have been up to.
Thankyou for visiting me, please come again or else I would be talking to myself, keep warm and dry and good luck with all your Christmas preparations.
As they say in all the best places - That's all folks.
