Not long now

Goodmorning everyone ,Maurice came in at about six fifty this morning,and after a quick cuppa .Went to bed and is sound asleep ;so Im busy finding quiet persuits ,so I wont desturb him ,though he does sleep quite soundly once hes off ! I was busy last evening  after hed gone to work ,putting up even more strings of Christmas cards ,I found the tree ,and lights but not the baubles !!Hmm ?no doubt at the back of the hall cupboard ;I also wrapped up most of the presents ,to be passed around the family when we assemble at Sharons pub ,tomorrow night ,as you will see the two big bags ready to take!right thats explained most of the pictures !The fairy ,I hear you say what is that ?!!Well Charlotte my eleven year old ,and only Grandaughter ,(eight grandsons!) made the fairy when she was four ,at play group,and though her doilly dress is getting very yellow and the tinsel is not as bright as it once was ,I love her !although Charlotte fanes embarrasment when she sees her ,I know she is secretly pleased to see her again ,and pleased to know I keep her year by year .I used to have another fairy,but she got lost ....!She was the butt of a lot of jokes ,especially when my kids were teenagers ,they would love to point her out to their friends To look at her she was quite nice with pretty wings ,nice blonde hair ,and a lacy dress ,but on closer inspection she was found to have cross eyes and green knickers !! As I say she was lost for many years ,and then she appeared a couple of years ago ;with my daughter Catherine s (you know my Kate ) tree stuck up her posteriar ,!Theres my fairy I shriek ,amidst her laughter Kate said you gave her to me !did I?I might have done ??Mothers do strange things lol ....did I ?HMM

THE SUN IS SHINING HERE ,SO HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY

        With Love from Jan xxxxx

Lovely photo's, I like your string of cards idea, I may have to steal that from you!!  The idea, not the string, or the cards ;o)  Awww, Jelly made a fairy at school last year, but he played with her and destructed her!  He made a big star this year though, which is on my tree out of his reach, this one I will save :o)
Lol at your cross eyed fairy!!

What are electric hair tongs? Are they to straighten hair? I haven't a clue and my suspence is getting the best of me. Thank you for the comments you have made in my journal. Merry Christmas, Paula
