Stuff...

As we approach the busy season I am not sure how much time I will be getting for crafting, I certainly hope lots! and with my Mum getting me 12 more promarkers I will at least be able to play with these on Christmas Day. I have a stinking cold, feel like my head will pop, makes me feel really tired as well. Harvey my 5 year old is HYPER, I think he will pop with excitement before Christmas, not least as Grandma and Grumps (in laws) are coming over from Spain to stay with us for 10 days. Will be lovely to see them, means we get two Christmas Dinners too as we will do one before they go back home. I say we, of course I mean me! They are coming tonight and we will see them in the morning, hubby is going to pick them up from Stanstead at 11pm tonight, I will be in bed!

Friday 12th will be a hard day. Hard to believe it will be one year since I lost my wonderful Dad. I miss him so much. We have decided to put our decorations up on 12th for Dad, the kids will like the decorations and Mum and I can remember all the fun Christmasses we had together, all those turkeys, sprouts and pairs of slippers! Yes Dad asked for them every year from me, I used to protest "But its a boring present", he replied "maybe but I need them" LOL (Mum got slippers too... how very practical) talking slippers though I desperately need a pair too!!

Today I am working at The Glitter Pot, demoing with pencils.... oh what a hard life I have? having to sit and colour all day!! I never take things like this for granted, I know how lucky I am and you never do know how long it will last. already see the magazine work dropping off as they pick up new talents forgetting us that started with them with the magazines, but things change and grow and you have to accept that.

Harvey has just woken up so I had better go... speak later and I will be back with some cards (hopefully)

Can I just say how much I feel for you and other people who have lost loved ones around this time. It's never an easy time but Christmas amplifies everything. Hope you and your mum have some smiles as well as tears through the tinsel as you put up your tree. Lol Lynn x
