Anne's tree and Beautiful Grandaughter

Good Morning Ladies,

First thing I want to do is to pass a message to my friend Ang  (who we were lucky enough to camp next to while on holiday in Spain)...... I hope you are both well, could you please send me your address? I would love to get in touch, I hope Trevor is well too, We are also going to Farnborough on the saturday, so we can plan to meet up.  Please feel free to join in the conversations on here, there are the most fun bunch of ladies ever. xxx

Today's tree has been wonderfully decorated by Anne, the gorgeous young lady next to the tree is Anne's Grandaughter Abi, who is off to her first dance, Abi, you look stunning my lovely, I do hope you had fun! xx
Anne's tree has a lot of baubles, some of them are old but packed with memories of Christmas's past,
I have to say Anne your tree looks beautiful, we have some very, very old baubles that belong to Paul's Nana, they are very fragile and made of really thin glass!
I am hoping that I have got the last few cards written and sent in the post! I will be glad to stow the Christmas dies and stamps until next year!  We are going to start making them every month next year!

I have another busy and funpacked day today, so will check in when I can,
I hope you all have an amazing day!
love and hugs
Sandra

  4. Good morning Ladies, Sandra your card arrived yesterday , thank you so much it is really beautiful! I now have a full string full of stunning handmade cards put in prime position for all to enjoy ! So thank you so much to everyone, I love them all xo.
    The photo shows our eldest grand daughter Abi who is 12 years old ( she is beautiful inside and out ) she is quite self conscious having her photo taken , she had a great time at her dance , I know the tree is loaded with baubles and bits but they hold lots of memories ( some made by Mandy and Stewart when they were wee, and they still check to see if they have been put on the tree) Lol!
    I made shortbread biscuits and oatcakes yesterday so must get ginger nuts and sultana cake done today.
    I know everyone is busy but take care of yourselves, love and hugs to all xoxo

    5. Anne, what a wee beauty your wee treasure is, so pretty and going to be breaking a few hearts i think. Just looking at that hair and thinking what i could do with that as i see hair and it takes me right back to training at college and then my apprenticeship( which was only so he could pay me dirt cheap but get qualified results with), oh how i loved to work with hair. I got chucked out of Retsons training academy as my boss had paid for the beginners training and after the first night going they chucked me out and i had to come back to go into the senior styling course but boss was trying to save money, but was told in no uncertain circumstances that he would either have to fork out for the proper styling course for me or he would forfeit his money....not a happy chappie. Oh how i used to love when someone said "give me a change" as it gave me scope to really look and assess their features both good and bad(cos lets face it we all have something that we don't like and want covered) and when you have some hair to actually work with to produce something that takes 30-45 mins to cut but mins to style or that you just need to shake your head and it sits, its what we all want something easy to handle but looks like you were there half the day doing it. I hope young Abi doesn't take the doomed route of cutting it because been there and got that t shirt for wanting something on a whim and then regretting it 10mins later( and there will probably be a few who can say the same thing). Glad she enjoyed her dance flower and your tree is your tree of life. The life that's went on before and who it's changed by each passing year is reflected in those treasures that are dangling from the branches. Children always think when they get older " i wonder why mum keeps putting that ugly thing on the tree for" of things that they made when not as skilled as today but those are the ones that mean the most as we know the love and attention and concentration that went into each of our most prized possessions. Thank you Anne for two bonnies especially the home grown one.x

  5. Good morning everyone
    Anne your tree is lovely as is the beautiful young lady at the side, hope Abi enjoyed her dance.
    Lillian I hope you don't succumb to the virus going round. I feel fine today so can carry on as usual.
    We received a lovely card yesterday addressed to Ruby and Bonnie complete with some little biscuits from our neighbours across the road, it is lovely.
    No plans as such today, just going with the flow, will get the polishing etc done as John has a hospital appointment tomorrow and we pick Nic up on Christmas Eve so the big day will be here before we know it.
    Sheila, thinking of you ((((hugs)))).
    Janet any news yet
    Will be back later, didn't get back last night ended up looking for books suitable for book folding as both great granddaughters have got the bug.
    Hugs in the basket.

  7. Morning Everyone
    ANNE - your tree is just beautiful and you must be so proud of your beautiful Granddaughter. So pleased she enjoyed her first dance. I'm sure she will remember it for all the years and dances to come.


    Yesterday's journey to and from Christina's was horrible. Going we had torrential rain and it was very cold when we stopped in Bakewell for a coffee break and we were hoping to walk round their usual Monday market. We managed one lot of stalls and then straight to the coffee shop and just into 'Bloomers' the bread/pie shop for Fat Rascals, Hommity (spelling)pies and Tea Bread and then straight to Hognaston. She hadn't returned from the farm after doing morning feeding and sorting of the cattle/sheep so she'd left it that we could get in and put the kettle on. We left around 17.00hrs so she could go back down to the farm to sort out for the night and then go back home to sort out her own animals etc. The builders have finished everything inside and the plasterer had just finished the new bathroom/utility and toilet in the extension and one of the bedrooms they wanted replastering yesterday morning so it's now connecting up time. Everything has been on a stop start basis because of the horrendous weather conditions but at least all the really big jobs have now been done. The journey home was a nightmare with again heavy rain and high winds and Jim and dark country lane driving these days don't mix very well. All I have to do now is get all the presents we brought back to their destinations and I can make a start of tidying the dining room etc. I shall be more than pleased to get on the Ferry Boxing Day.

    BARBARA - I hope you had a reasonable journey back to Yorkshire and that you're OK. I've sent very gentle hugs to you all.
    I'm thinking of all of you my Dear Friends who are finding it difficult at the moment. Gentle hugs are on their way to you all. I shall be taking all of you with me to Marigny for some R&R.

    We still do not have a baby - Nicky took her and Lily-Mae out shopping yesterday but still no signs.

    OK I've now finished my Latte; left everything straight and ready for anyone who has time to just come in and sit for five minutes and so now have to go and fight my way to sort out my craft stuff for this afternoon.
    Hugs are in their usual place and I've left a little/tiny warmer in Tiny's cot.

  8. Morning Sandra and all the lovely ladies
    Anne what a lovely tree and granddaughter you have. Abi looks very pretty and grown up, I hope she enjoyed her dance. Isn't it funny with Christmas decorations and children, no matter their age they still love to look for special ones. It was like opening presents for Emma when she started doing the tree, all I could here were squeaks of 'oh the gingerbread man, he's got to go on'! Apparently the branches on our tree are spread too wide so there's not much room! It's apparently still being decorated so there are still lots of boxes and bags around it so I can't clear and Hoover just yet!
    It's really blowy here again today and has been for most of the night - Emma thinks she's bought it with her from Aberdeen! Although walking around in doors yesterday with shorts on was a bit much for me, I was in a fleece! I must get on, I've got an auntie visit today, my sister is going too so it's a chance to catch her before Christmas then it's Christmas shopping and the Christmas market with Emma. I don't know if I will be back as I have wrapping to do tonight
    Lots of love and hugs all round - Janet I hope the baby comes today, your daughter is so kingpd helping the farmer but she must be running herself raggid xxxxx Saba sending you and Val a big hug xxxx

Sheila and Littlelamb, hope you are all right ? missing you both. Thank you Myra to tell us Saba is in place and hope she can pop in one day.
    Janet, any news ? not good for the bp all this waiting hihi. Have a good day and the same to all of you,whatever you do tho try to have some time out. We were shopping( fridge and freezer now stocked up) and a bit of small cleaning yesterday(wiped down the cupboard doors) in the kitchen. Cleared away even more craft items so come Thursday I will have plenty of workspace to make some sort of a buffet for our starters etc. Have a present wrapping to do, yes just the one and then some rest before the big clean down tomorrow as SIL will be here all day Thursday .Washing machine on and some e-mails to write so will go and do that now and hope to see you later, love and hugs from sleepy me Xxx

  10. Hi Sandra
    Ann I love your tree and your granddaughter is gorgeous. Now I saw that cyber space ate my reply to your post re my stamp. It must be because I hit publish then have to sign in to google then go back to publish again. I thought I did this, but who knows now. If you let he know gow many you'd like done for next year I'll gladly do them for you. I'll do it after Christmas or else I'll probably forget, and I'll have a few of your snow couple in return please. Well I decided to buy a new fibre optic tree yesterday, or at least look, but couldn't find any decent ones or hardly any of them at all. Fancy some of the ladies knowing where Yarnton, and Lilian I think it was who actually lived there. Apologies if it wasn't you Lilian to whoever it was. Peters off for bloods this morning before his appointment at the hospital and I've to finish off Christmas shopping and off to Doreen's. Hopefully see you later. Hugs to you all especially Saba.

  12. Good morning everyone who has time to call in.
    Anne, your tree is beautiful. Abi is a very pretty girl, it's lovely to see a 12 year old just being that, glad she enjoyed her party.
    I have been out and got things and shopping from here in Cupar, now off out after my cup of tea to get other things. Little Andrew is getting as part of his Christmas present is a cozy heavy blanket for his bed he loves my cozy spare slanket on his bed and he has to be tucked in tight using it. So granny is buying him a blanket of his own, plus a couple of other things. He is one little boy who just doesn't ask for much at any time.
    Janet, yes I think we all are getting to a stage that we don't like driving in the dark especially when it's raining as well. That farmer neighbour of your daughter is really lucky, not many would do it.
    I keep thinking of Saba, she will be trying to spend as much time with Val yet she will want to see her grand children too.
    Sheila will you see Nikki on Christmas Day ?
    Jean, enjoy your time with your Nic.
    Diane, when Emma is going back to Aberdeen tell her to bring good weather with her, she will have a stop at Perth Broxden park and ride, so she can let it out there. It will hopefully cover bith Patricia and I.
    Maureen and Margaret C you are getting the horrible over night weather we had so take care.
    Maria, I would love to slow down, but I want to get everything done by tomorrow. Charlie has gone to see to the chickens down at Gillians, then go to our post office. Oh I'd better go make a move. I have put some of Charlies birthday cake for you to have in the cabinet, just a lovely chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream filling and white icing. He was taken aback by all your wishes and hugs I had to give him.
    Will hopefully get back in. xxx

  20. Just watched the news those poor folk in Cumbria have been flooded again in places, how much more can they take??? Something will have to be done. House building on flood plains will have to be stopped, ok it's to late for some, but it's a lesson that has to be taken seriously. I know how water logged the fields are round here, and we are lucky the river is down hill from us.
    I will have to do some gift wrapping, just little things, but still need doing. I also have 2 more covers to make for boxes of maltesser.
    Now I have to apoligise to you all, I haven't taken goodies to the chemo unit as I had planned. The reseaon being they have been given loads of biscuits etc. This year and the support nurse, I have a lot to do with phoned and asked if I could delay bringing the goodies I had told her I had bought. They have no room to store them. The kidney unit has got some, our Christopher delivered them. The Perth chemo unit also have been given as some of the goodies ( Tammy took them) wouldn't last after the end of December. Now due to all this I didn't photo things. I sent pillow boxes that contained a small hand cream and a chap stick in them, for Christmas Day for thise staying in. this was agreed by the support nurse as these are the things that are needed, Anna and Beths dad is taking these in for me I have a bit of a sore throat so I will not go near the unit. Again I never photographed these, all done in a hurry today to get them along to their house tonight, they are going out this evening so had to get them along before they left. I will get myself organised and photograph what will be taken later in the new year. I seem to be more disorganised this year not working than I ever was working, granted I have been over in Perth a lot when I had planned to do other things. Then again why get in myself worked up about it, it won't help and to be honest, we are safe, warm, dry and we have food in the cupboards. xxx

    1. Hazel, don't get yourself into a tizz over photographing the things. We know all the hard work that you and Patricia do, and the good things that come out of it. Just relax and don't worry. xxxx

  21. Evening Ladies

    Goodness-today was crazy at work, problems waiting for tomorrow already.

    Just seen on the news that parts of Cumbria are flooded yet again! My heart goes out to those poor people affected. Tesco have a collection point for toys for Christmas for anyone in Cumbria/Carlisle so I'll be buying something tomorrow to donate.

    I'd just like to say a big Thank You For all the amazing Christmas cards I've received, they're all gorgeous.

    1. Michele, you do an amazing job, and a lot of people will be in your debt. I cannot believe the floods again in Cumbria - I said to George "never mind about overseas aid, get some of the money to those who have lost everything, not once but twice or three times". xxx

  23. Wellllllllllll I finally got to the end. I've posted under everyone's post as I knew I would forget half of what I wanted to say.
    The Carol Service was lovely. I'm shopped out, all presents wrapped but still haven't bought Peter anything. What do you buy the man who has nothing!!! I think I'll give him money and then he can go out in the sales and get a few bargains. I've got him some chocolates and smellies but nothing big.
    Saba, thinking of you.
    Margaret C, hope all is ok with you.
    Sheila, sending you love.
    I'll hopefully see you all tomorrow.
    Love Muriel xxxx

  24. Evening all, finished most of what needed doing, washing machine on the blink again, only does couple of minutes spin.
    I bought o/h new 3 piece suit for Christmas, if that helps Maureen.
    Well still have a sore throat but no worse than this morning so hoping I'll get away with just that.
    Thinking of those of you who are finding this a difficult time, love and hugs to you.
    Sleep tight all, see you in the morning. Lilian
