Maureen's Peace on Earth
The weekend is almost upon us once again, this weeks feel like they are getting shorter, there must only be about five weeks until the 'big day' is upon us!
Our weekends plans have been turned on there head, Paul has been asked to change his shift pattern for the weekend, he now has to work Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, thankfully the girls football match has been cancelled, as it was an away game and Paul will be sleeping off his night shift, the hardest thing is keeping the house quiet enough for him to sleep, you would be surprised how noisy two 15 year olds can be, particularly when then are 'trying' to be quiet!
On to today's card, when you first look you think my what a pretty winter scene, a gorgeous Christmas card, but when you take time and look a little deeper, you can see the pure genius skill that has used to create the amazing effect of the light from the North Star illuminating the trees below!
It's Our Maureen that is has created this masterpiece! I am only guessing that Maureen has used lighter colour paint or pens to create the effect of the light shining on the trees and snow, making them almost sparkle in the light of the star, Maureen I am in awe of your colouring skills!
Thank you so much for sharing your lovely card with all of us xxxx
Temperatures are set to drop so best get your thermal drawers out girls, time to layer up!
Funny, I never think of wearing thermal knickers myself but I insist on the girls wearing it for
football and a white thermal under their school blouse as they have to wait in the cold for a bus early in the morning, thankfully unlike some teenagers my girls do wear coats!
Do Damart still exist? I seem to remember joking about wearing their underwear years ago but after spending one too many winters sat in that wheelchair I think I may well be making a purchase, the trouble is when you are sat in there you aren't moving around to keep warm, I am sure they look very modern these days, but to be perfectly honest I don't really care, I need warmth, mind you I think Margaret's bags will be well used for that very thing this winter, a couple of minutes in the microwave for a couple of hours warmth! The girls have asked me to make the small one's up so that they can use them for Hand Warmers when they leave the house in the morning or a warm up after football at the weekends, so once again we all thank you Margaret xxxx
That's all from me for today,
Love and hugs
