One step forward...................into a New Year..........

It is that step into the unknown year, so much before us, so many hopes, wishes, promises.
This New Year will open doors to places undreamed of... good and bad...... happy and sad..times to remember and those we will wish to forget.....
I hope you and I and our loved ones and friends are blessed with Good Health and Happiness for all of these coming days....................

You know I was looking for a Christmas tree well........I went to the local car boot Tuesday and look what was leaning up against a van......looking all lost and lonely...it will have to be a fiver the guy said..it is real! ...I nearly kissed him! (lucky escape for him I think ...) then I dragged the tree home singing Carols and looking a little dishevelled for 8.30 in the morning rushing around cos my friends were also coming over.. so  just this morning I put some pretty s on him isn't he cute xxxxx... you can make huge balls out of doilys...just sew 4 doilys together with some net and they fluff out beautifully xxxx

Starting to decorate......................











Hope you are all well xxx and not too frazzled from looking at the horrendous cost of Christmas trees....
I think I shall have to opt out this year. I have two lovely ones in pots outside and may bring one in for a few days, but I feel guilty and don't want to kill it.
I play motets and chants when I am decorating...eat lots of cake and today had a rather nice cool glass of Asti ( I love the bubbles)... so I am sorry if the pictures are a little squify.....ha ha.
Tuesday will be simply lovely some friends are coming round for a Christmas workshop, lots of mess lots of fun..I shall take some pictures..Hurrah!
Hugs Lynn xxxx
