Christmas 2012

Christmas Eve

I took a taxi over to Neil & Gemma's mainly because I was rather loaded down with presents and food.
I noticed in the taxi a little cross sitting on the dashboard and I mentioned it to the driver. You see I recognised it but I didn't recognise him. He told me that his mother had found it in the Co-op, people were walking over it, so she bend down and picked it up. I told him I knew who made it, it was one of the many crosses that Billy had made. One like this one

The driver was obviously please to have it in his car it seemed to mean a lot to him

Christmas day

Christmas morning service in church was lovely, the worship leaders looked very co-ordinated in Red white and black, I am sure it wasn't planned though

Neil picked me up when the service finished and I spent the day with the family, Rufus was not very well at all, and when he took his medicine he didn't leave any for Daddy because "I'm very ill". Only a very bad cold but he was all stuffed up and feeling dreadful. But perked up each time there was a present to open.

Boxing Day

I was being picked up late morning, so I had time to go for a walk down the back lane. Turning in the opposite direction from usual I came upon a clearing where the squirrels seem to congregate, no wonder they did they were being fed with peanuts.

This time Gill came over for me with Rufus, Neil was feeling really rough, still there was no cooking for him to do today as it was a buffet meal, very nice with lots of nibbles and snacks etc.
I didn't get very many photos over the two days and most of what I did take were not brilliant but I really wanted to add a page to my Christmas album so did a collage type layout.

Rufus's poorly Christmas

Thursday 27th
We opened up the church for the sale as usual but had very few people in, still it was good to be there for those that did come.
I just vegged in front of the box in the afternoon and didn't take a single photo

Friday 28th
Today's As seen, just had to be this spiral staircase seen through an empty shop window. I'd gone up to old town to the opticians to pick up my new glasses, and on the way walking down the hill I saw it

Today I am grateful for family
for finding inspiration in the new Scrapbook magazine
for my new glasses

i love the Christmas Eve story - just beautiful!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
