Just had to show you this

Hi All
I know 2 posts in one day but had to show you a picture of my son, he is going to a Yule party, him and his friends are goths and here he is in all his gear, thankfully this time he did not bother  with his make up and black nail varnish, I do think he looks good, but then I am bias, see what you think



Hi All

Finally Teressa got her prize, the post some times is so slow, but that means I can show you what she won,
The end of the world should of happened today, but I am sitting here with the Internet, the telly on and people outside, so I assume it did not happen, or did it and I am on my own, let me know if you know different,
4 more sleeps to go

Its nearly here

Hi All

Can you believe it, its nearly here, only 5 days to go, then its Christmas, is it me or does time go so quickly?
The tree is up, the presents are wrapped, just the food to buy, will not be buying to much food, Christmas day,
I am having a quieter Christmas this year, I usually have all the family round and cook a massive dinner, but this year my health has not been at its best so we will all descend on my mum and dad on Boxing day.
 I cannot wait for them to see their Christmas present, going to take a risk today, I will show you their present, they do not read my blog often only when I tell them to have a look at something, so think I will be safe.

I had their 2 dogs, Yorkshire terriers, bobby and Leo, made in miniature, by Bridget McCarty, she is in America and makes incredible miniature animals, I sent her a picture and I was amazed when I got them, I love them, so I made a small display for them to sit in, we have decided to give them the display first, watch how they try to say thank you and then tell them "you better have this to go with it" Bobby the eldest is 14 years old and his health is not so good, so I hope they do not get upset.

Off to the mini club today, its our Christmas dinner so we will not get anything done.

have a look at the photos

Bobby and Leo
The pictures are of my mum and dad, my brothers, me with my sons and the doggies

Hi All
at last one of my give a ways as turned up, Isabel received hers so I can show you a picture, still waiting to hear from From Teressa, hope it turns up soon, so I can now show you a picture of what Isobel won,

Its getting very close to Christmas and I have just got my food shopping to do, hurrah,
my hall is now decorated and the bathroom is just waiting for a false blind and flooring, I want for the blind Cath Kidston material showing beach huts, when I did not want this it was every where, now every where I look its sold out, I am bidding on eBay for fabric showing boats, hope I get it, then I can make the blinds. the flooring can wait till after Christmas and I will find something in the sales. that's it then house done, next year I can concentrate on the garden, I need to make it user friendly for me, It has got more difficult for me to get about so I want a garden that does not need a lot of work, have got a few ideas, and have got a few pictures of really nice gardens, but it will all depend on funds.

here is the picture of Isobel's prize
