Monday's mean one thing.....Challenge, this Monday is no different, well apart from the fact that it's New Years Eve!!
So this Challenge is both the last Challenge of 2018 and the First Challenge of 2019
I understand that some of you are still either with family or have family staying with you, so will be too busy to sit and make cards, so please don't feel under pressure to take part. But some of you are at home and would enjoy the challenge of making something that isn't 'Festive' !!
I wanted this first challenge to have the categories to enable us to make 'Spring' cards, pretty pastel colours , flowers, butterflies, so this particular grid is perfect for that. I hope that you like this TicTacToe grid as much as I do.
So how many of you have plans for tonight/tomorrow??
We are doing what we usually do......Not very much!! I think that all of our Children have plans to go out and celebrate, I was so relieved that Lucy arranged something with her friends, with Sophie being in Florida I was worried that she would be miserable sat at home with Paul and I.
We might pop round to the Red Lion for a drink this evening, we went there for the first time with Paul's parents for dinner on Friday night, it was really nice, the food was good and the landlady was really friendly and welcoming. So we may break tradition and pop out for an hour! Other than that we will have a take away and celebrate quietly, like we always do.
New Years Day we are breaking from tradition, we usually have a Roast Beef Dinner, however there are only 4 of us home this year, so we are going to have Steak, Chips and all the trimmings instead.
I will save the beef for when Sophie comes home of Friday.
She is having a lovely time in Florida, she went to Universal Studios on the first day, then yesterday they were taking one of those Jet Boats (with the big fan on the back) on the Everglades, looking for Crocodiles, I think that she was both excited and apprehensive, in the end they only saw a couple as it was a little bit chilly for the crocodiles. She has decided to give Disney World a miss as Universal Studios was so incredibly overcrowded it wasn't as enjoyable and they had to wait ages in queues for rides etc. I hope that she doesn't regret that decision, I think it is a good one though. I have always thought that they should limit the number of people they allow in on busy days, so that everyone can enjoy all of the attractions. We had the same experience at Legoland Windsor in 2004, it was hot and the park was so overcrowded, we waited hours for every ride, so only got to enjoy two of the rides, I wrote and complained, they just used every excuse they could think of, we have never returned or recommended it to anyone else for that reason. They just get greedy, I don't think they think about what would happen if there was so kind of emergency on those days.
Anyway I will leave you all to enjoy your New Years Eve my Dear, Sweet Friends, I would like to wish you 'All that you wish for yourselves and much more'!
I can't wait to share every day of the New Year with all of you.
