Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Ho Ho Ho!

As the wind howls around the house, 
I sit quietly on my own, 
the boys wrapping pressies upstairs,
the cats investigating around the tree. 

We've just returned from my folks 
where we had a wonderful family celebration.

The meal was delicious
 and the obligatory silly party games 
had us laughing out loud.
It is amazing how much fun you get out of wearing a false mustaches and eating green chocolate Brussels sprouts! 

The vintage slide show of various great great grandparents,
grandparents and children was the icing on the cake...
Thank you x

Now, presents wrapped,
stockings filled,
tree lights out,
we're off to bed.
Good night, sleep well xxx

May tomorrow be filled with 
Love and


  1. Sounds like such a fun family celebration. Wishing you all a very joyous day for Christmas.

  2. That sounds wonderful (except chocolate sprouts, that's just plain weird!)

    The wind is howling round our house too. Holiday blessings from all here to all at Hawthorn Towers, may you have a wonderful day. x

  3. Wonderful Christmas for ypu and ypur family too!

  4. That sounded good and as I write this you are all probably nearly asleep after a long day. Hope the day was a good one and I'll talk with you before New Year. Take care.

  5. Sure....you have had a fabulous Christmas Day....Merry Christmas!

  7. Merry Christmas, I hope it was magical xxx

  8. It was a lovely evening, thanks for all your help. Chocolate sprouts - delicious! Don't worry, they are not as they sound, think chocolate money, mini chocolate Easter eggs, you get my drift I am sure. xx
