....It was a trip to Bury as usual. It's the first time in quite a few weeks that I've not had a long list of things Christmas related to buy which made it rather enjoyable.
I had a lovely mooch in The Works and picked up some more books. Winter is made for early nights to bed with a book.
Bought some new slippers which are part of my Christmas present from Thomas so I shall have to wait for them.
Popped on the market to see if they had some holly and mistletoe which they did as long as you wanted it in a wreath which I didn't, so still no luck. But I did buy a cardigan for Joan. They didn't have the colour I really wanted in her size but it's not a problem as I doubt very much whether we'll ever see her wearing it anyway. Betty, Ethel, Dorothy, in fact any number of residents in the home yes, but the official owner, probably not.
Back home I finished the little project I started yesterday. Would you believe me if I told you I don't have a pin cushion? Well it's true so I decided to rectify the matter and made one.
I also spent a bit of time making a card tree. A couple more rows and it should shape up quite nicely. Just hope I have enough friends so I can finish it off!
It would seem Christopher Elf found himself a girlfriend last night and that they spent their time together have a bit of a cuddle, watching films and drinking wine. I hope Number 38 isn't overrun with little elves with long blonde hair and pink high heels in months to come.
And I thought I'd show you a Christmas card we've received. It's from a cousin of mine and him and his wife are, shall we say, both a sandwich short of a picnic. Anyway, here it is. Thunderbirds! What the heck is all that about! For a start I'm pushing 50 and she's pushing 60 so where the Thunderbirds train of thought came from or is going I have no idea.
Anyway, if you look carefully at the card tree you'll see it's not on there and I'm sorry if you're a meerkat lover, but that one only just made it as well.
And with that I'll bid you all good evening and see you tomorrow.
