Bye Bye For Now

Hello!  As you can see, I do love Russian Dolls, and I have quite a collection of them which I have built up over the years, I don't open them up often and when I opened this Santa one today I had forgotten what was hiding within and it did bring a smile to my face, a festive smile that is!

I also put together these birds which I bought from IKEA last week, they are cute and the wings just thread through the body , such a simple idea.

I also dusted off this lovely Angel that a friend gave me last year, I love Angels and keep this out on my dresser all year round.  A blessing not just for my family but to all your families too!

I ventured out into the garden this morning in the hope of getting some washing dry (failed miserably!) and took a piccie of my brussel sprouts growing in the garden, this is the first time I have attempted to grow them and I think they will be ready for christmas dinner

The leaves look a bit chewed, but the sprouts look fine! you either love em or hate em and I love em!!!

I have been running around today trying to get organised because hubby and I are going away next week for his birthday treat to Center Parcs (his choice), to be honest I am in a bit of a panic about being away for five days at this time of the year, you know what it is like, have to get the house clean and tidy, need to get shopping in the for young men, make sure the cat has enough food, not to mention washing and ironing and work!!!!I think I shall get in the car and fall asleep (I won't be driving I hasten to add!)  - one good thing is I will take lots of crochet with me and hope to get things done! Of course I will take my camera and hopefully have some foresty piccies for you all when I get back.    I will try to read up on everyone's blogs whilst I am away, but doubt that I will be able to post.  Take care and thank you for dropping by and have a great week.  Speak soon xx


  1. Have a great time away. It will all still be there when you get back, so enjoy. I know as I'm still catching up on all....he-he.
