Last Day of 2010

and what did I get up to?........sat at my very messy craft desk and made some cards. That's a nice feeling, and I've got more ideas for tomorrow as well.

And I did a lot of reading too - great books these, good stories.
Happy New Year everyone, may it be a good one :D

Take that, snow! I'm ready for you now, with my new boots and my new snow shovel. Of course, this means that it now won't snow for about 5 years...........

New Boots

This year I've been following Lou's blog. It started out as a photo for every day, but she had such an amazing year that it turned into a journal and has been inspiring and heartwarming along the way. It got to the stage where I had to make sure I logged in every night to check on today's photo and Eli's progress. I admire her discipline, among other things, and I have resolved to try and blog more often and post more pics. I doubt I will manage one for each day but I'm gonna give it a go!
So today's photo is my new boots that I got for Christmas - went out and chose them today and they are very comfy and lovely. Also got a very expensive pair of smart boot socks to go with them. Bring on the snow!! (only kidding :P)

last flowers........

Well, here they are, the last batch of flowers from my magic box......
I am soooooo behind now with actually using them, but I have planned a day of card making this coming week to catch up.
It was an amazing present, and once again I would like to thank my secret fairy godmother for being so kind and thoughtful. And because I am so behind with using them, this present will last for ages into 2011 as well!!
Thank you.

When icicles hang by the wall

Wow its been a while since I blogged and again, I don't really know why I couldn't get my head round it as I've been reading other people's blogs. It's been really busy and then we had so much snow that didn't help!
These pictures were taken in my garden yesterday and this morning. I'm tired of trudging up and down the road with my shopping trolley now! I'm glad it's Christmas Eve and all the shopping is done.

This sight greeted me when I opened the patio door this morning, they were really beautiful. All melted now as we get the sun, but no doubt will reform for tomorrow. I know I am behind with my flowers but I will make a separate post for them.
Happy Christmas to all, have a peaceful and relaxing time.

Once again time has gone by and I haven't blogged. Not sure why really, cos I have been on here reading other people's blogs and following Eli's story and loving his photos. It's just been busy busy busy. And then it snowed. And snowed. Sadly for me, it snowed in one of our busiest weeks and it has been an absolute pain trying to get in and out of town to ballet performances. While it was beautiful, it was so frustrating as everything ground to a halt. And the cats were seriously unimpressed!
I have 3 Friday's worth of flowers to show, but I haven't even taken a photo of last Friday's yet so these 2 pretty ones will have to do for the moment. I haven't done any crafting for ages as I've been too busy, but I did manage to start writing my Christmas cards. Just have to finish them now!
