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 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.
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.
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
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
