There is only 2 sleeps left and the big day is here, the house is decorated, presents are wrapped, food is brought,   I am ready.
Yesterday I went to the big supermarket to buy some bits I had forgotten from my list, now this year I have kept to a budget, some of my presents have been hand made, they have been wrapped in brown paper and string with  added decorations I have found on the big wide web, I made my cards, I cut back on the food, as last year a lot ended up in the bin, in the shop every where I looked there were people with trolleys so full, and I thought its only one day, most of the shops will be open on Boxing day, why do we do this to ourselves, we have to have everything even if we do not like it, after all its Christmas, we seem to of forgotten the meaning of Christmas, yes its a celebration, but of the birth of Jesus and the start of Christianity, do we really need all we buy, will the world stop if we go without the nuts, I just ask when you are shopping just think of those who cannot have what we have, and just give one little item to them, I thank you,
I hope you will forgive this rant, and understand my meaning, I do not want to upset anyone as these are just my thoughts.

I also want to say for those who have lost loved ones, take a few minutes, remember them, shed a few tears, we are allowed to, after all they are still part of our lives even if they are no longer with us, every year I am the first one up, and I sit quietly and I do cry for the daughter I lost and my dad who is no longer here, it does not spoil my day, but I feel that I have included them.
To all the friends I have made, my followers, I wish you all  a Very Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year

I'm ready

Yes I am all ready, presents wrapped, cards written, decorations up. last night I finished my son's jumper, very pleased with the end result, cannot show you a picture just in case he reads my blog, I just hope it fits.

No time for minis, I am visiting relatives, having visitors, my little dogs are having their nails cut this week and maybe a trim, and yes they have presents under the tree, my little puppy, Muppet has been so good, apart from her first look at the tree she has not bothered with it, they both seem fascinated by the lights, they do sit and look at them.

I am really busy after Christmas I have 2 hospital appointments in different hospitals, one is for my rt. arm and shoulder, to see if they can relieve the pain, the other is at the cardiology unit, I have been having a bit of chest pain, my GP thinks its indigestion, but in view of my problems earlier this year ( I had a heart attack and bilateral clots to my lungs ) she felt it would be wise for me to see a specialist, love the way she said do not worry but if you get severe pain dial 999!!!  hopefully it will prove to be nothing.

Looking forward to seeing my son, Thomas he is home from Scotland this week, its been ages since I saw him, having him home is a great present I need no more.

Well my friends all that is left for me to do is to wish you all              
                                               A HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
