It's sunny and -4 degrees at Fir Tree. No. I don't live there but I was at their Christmas Craft fair and bought a 'fair' few things for my family for Christmas so no reveal just in case. There were all sorts of crafts, including cards, wooden toys, homemade chocs (guess where I lingered? They were made by a young man in his early teens who had started it out as a school project and loved it so much that his dad had helped him to start his own business locally - I can tell you they were very good.), jewellery, photographs, art work, wreaths and plants. I can reveal that I bought a cyclamen for myself and considered buying a chilli plant for my youngest as they looked like bejewelled Christmas trees and she loves chillies.I am starting to sound like my mum "I saw such-and-such and was nearly buying it for you". The reason I didn't was because there is still enough time between now and Christmas Day for me to be responsible for plant death.
Sad news again. My sister Morag's father-in-law died this week. Although she is divorced she still kept in touch with her in-laws for the sake of her son. I also did, though not as much, as they were such kind and generous people.
Some good news too though. Morag has chosen a dog and it is coming to stay with her this Thursday. He is a 4 year old Bearded collie called Frodo. My sister is not a LOTR's fan and is debating a name change to a sound-alike, Mojo or Polo (she rejected my suggestion of Popo - why?) She has cheered up no end at the prospect of having something to lavish her attention on. Hopefully Frodo will sensibly take it in his stride!
I have a cunning plan for two cards, one using a Pink Cat digi and the other....wait and see. It's not rocket science but it's new to me.
Cheery bye for now, Hazel x
