The past couple of days have been spent giving the cottage a deep clean and a sort through the Christmas decor. What fun we have had remembering Christmas's past, particularly when looking through the baubles. It is certainly an eclectic mix but each one a different memory of a place or person. I am not getting all the Christmas tableware out this year as we won't be here but a start has been made on a few Christmas touches. We do want to feel festive prior to our trip away and decor is certainly a way of stirring up a seasonal feeling.
Christmas cards have been written and are already to be posted. Any worldwide post has already been taken to the post office. I did look to try and reduce the numbers of cards posted but found it hard for one reason or another so I will cut a few corners somewhere else. Our Grandson Bertie fell in love with a penguin in Waitrose but the price was little prohibitive. Granny to the rescue...
... a couple of pom poms, some orange felt and a couple of beads later... Tah Dah!
One very quickly became two.
They have been taken to the post office but how long they will take to get across to the mainland remains to be seen. It will certainly make one little boy very happy.
As always I thank for your visit here and your comments they are all appreciated and indeed uplifting. A warm welcome to a new follower I do hope you enjoy my little adventures through life.
See you soon.
