Well Christmas Has Come and Gone!

Well I hope everybody has as a good a Christmas as I had. Why do we all get into such a frenzy of buying, wrapping and panic when it is all over and done with so quickly? Among my presents under the tree this year was a Secret Santa gift handmade for me by one of my Craft Forum buddies (rhulme) and I couldn't wait to see what I got. Here is a pic of the lovely goodies in my parcel which smell devine. However a big fat raspberry to Royal Mail who failed to deliver my Secret Santa pressie to its' intended recipient. I will be claiming compensation from them and donating the money to charity.

Britain's Got The X Factor,Soapstar, Superstar

If you haven't seen this programme you really missed a treat. Peter Kay as Geraldine McQueen is brilliant and now "she" is following me on Twitter along with Stephen Fry! If you haven't woken up to Twitter yet, get signed up and get tweeting, its great fun. Meanwhile I've put away my crafting for a few days while I try to recover from a nasty chest infection which doesn't want to go away. Im now on my second run of antibiotics so let's hope that I'm fully recovered in time to enjoy the Christams festivities!!

Winter Chill, ggrrr

Well dear son "Kevin" managed to pass on all his wonderful germs and I have been suffering from a chest infection for the last five days which doesn't seem to want to go. I've nearly finished the antibiotics but I sound like a 40 a day smoker at the moment. Anyhow another successful fair last weekend and the last of the season is on this Sunday at Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds and it promises to be good. I am trying to get into the Christmas spirit but I am having great difficulty due to DS only having enthusiasm for getting lots of pressies but no interest otherwise. Anyway for good measure I have thrown in an old photo taken at a school nativity play many years ago.

I'm Being Held Captive....

by a 12 year old with a chest infection who is off school for a few days! Still it's given me chance to get busy replacing some of the things that I sold last week at the Warwick Victorian Evening. Despite the wind, which played havoc with the display, and the rain, which was heavy, lots and lots of brave souls turned out to see the lights switched on and enjoy the fair. I have just finished making another little clutch bag and I'm busily knitting skinny scarves in bright colours for a school fair this Saturday at Bilton Grange.
