A bit more civilised time to do an entry ,the last one I did was at Midnight Thursday ,here I am midday on December 24th 2006,as I was reading journals earlier I heard the church bells ringing ,reminding me that it is Sunday ,Maurice went off to work early ,for his three days ,then its three nights then again three off ,so he will be off for the new year ! Mark is going to come and get me tomorrow morning ,for lunch with him and his wife Chrissie , The last three days we have been busy ,Thursday evening as you know Jean and Pete ,Stuart and Viccie came over ,then Friday we went .....yes shopping ,we bought a new ,dvd/video player recorder ,so next year I plan to put all my home video's from years ago ,onto dvd ,then get rid of the tapes ,that will give me more room ! and something to keep me busy HAH
It was open day at the home Aunty Kitty is in yesterday. So Maurice ,Mike, Jackie Bobbie and I all went bearing gifts to see her ,Bobbie was her dog before she went into the home ,Bobby now lives with Mike and Jackie ,(Aunty Kitty decided she wanted a dog ,called Bobby ,when she went to choose one she fell in love with this little girl ,but still kept the name Bobby !)
Maurice and I both agreed she didnt look so well ,this time ,maybe she was just over whelmed by it all ,she opened her presents from us all ,she said to Maurice 'is it my Birthday '?the home had put on some lovely refreshments and they had a raffle ,where Mike was lucky to win a hairdo !!!
We went back to Mike and Jackies to get our car ,and to exchange presents ,we also got a preview of Bobby's party frock ! a tu tu in pink ! Maurice took the picture of her and I got some video footage ,(I had also recorded Aunty Kitty opening her presents earlier )
Earlier... before we got to Mike and Jackies we called in at my Daughter Kates ,and a lovely surprise, my other older Daughter Sharon was there,(she manages a working mans club now ,so is always busy )so at Kates house we again all exchanged presents ,and Sam who hates having his picture taken was demonstrating his crazy straw, didnt object on this occasion ,so off course Gran took advantage and took two !
Before I close this entry I want to wish all my friends in journal land a very Happy Christmas ,and when Santa comes tonight I hope he will bring you all some lovely presents ...Have a peaceful Blessed Christmas every one ,With Love From Maurice and I XXX
