Life has been so different this Christmas, I only finished putting the final dec's up last evening about 8. 20 pm. I'm so late this year but a lot has been going on.
My brother passed away on the 10th Dec and then Graeme informed me that our lovely Tracy had passed on the 11th Dec. My brother Melvyn lived a long life and was waited on hand and foot by his lovely wife Jan who is now finding it very hard to find things to do in her now very quiet life, but lovely Tracy had so much to look forward to. She often used to say to me that she thought she was too old to have a baby and I would say to her that my mum had me at 45 and I turned out normal and she would laugh. That was one very special lady and I will miss her very much.
Phoenix is an absolute treasure, and although having weeks of upset tummy's and constant consultation with health visitors and doctors, last Monday I went with Claire to the doctors to reveal that Phoenix has a milk allergy. So he is now on a different formula that now makes him constipated, poor little man, so it's lot's of cuddles patting his back and jiggles while doing lots of walking. It's what I signed up for, I just wish I could be there more.
I made a few Christmas cards, but didn't have time to make cards for all the family and friends, but intend to start early next year. Sounds good doesn't it! The only thing by making an early start is that Sue will bring out some beautiful new dies that you really feel you need!.
I'm sorry about the photo's of the Christmas cards, I didn't even have time or room to put up the little studio, so please excuse my very untidy sanctuary ( workroom ).
I would like to say to you all a very heartfelt thank you for your never ending support and I really don't have words to say how much it means to me that you still visit. It amazes me when I see the number of visits and lovely comments you leave. Long mat it continue, but I really must get into gear and start making more cards. Paul has bought me a Go Press and Foil machine and I can't wait to use it. So a different die buying in 2018.
As for the big day . If your're traveling stay safe, Eat well, Drink wisely ( or not ) but most of all Enjoy.
See you soon in 2018.
Lots of Love & Hugs to you all, and again THANK YOU XX
