A Very Heart Warming Happy New Year To You All.
Well what a manic celebratory week that was. So much work, cooking, preparations, decorations entertaining, drinking- Hik! excuse me. How lovely! I hope you all enjoyed seeing 2016 in whether it was full on or slightly more gentle. It really doesn't matter, as long as you had a good time. Mine was different to any other year. Paul said he would light a fire in the Summerhouse and we'll have drinks and nibbles out there. At the time I had been emerged in doing my nieces wedding Invites all day, but said I would be out soon. At 10pm I took a drinks out to see the New Year in with Paul. Only to find that he had celebrated the New Year prematurely. He then went to bed, so I went back in my workroom and carried on doing my nieces invites until I looked at the clock at around 3.30am, I did toast myself at midnight when I heard the fireworks that were set off in the village . Invites still not finished. Hey Ho!
What is it with rustic, shabby chic invitations, they're ok, but I want to do sparkle and pretty, or is that just me!
We had a lovely Christmas day with Craig, quiet, as he didn't have Claire to banter with. I felt really sorry for him as they are so close, and I know he missed her. Luckily we all got together on boxing day and had a lovely meal and lots of festive food throughout the evening, and played games and lots of laughs. I have to say our lives are about to change big time . listening to Claire and Toby when our Granddaughter comes along. Maybe next year not having a Christmas at home, and having to share it with the lovely inlaws at Claire's home, I really mean that, they're fab fun! I don't like change, but I must learn to accept it.
This weeks make is a bit different for me too, but I just loved this stamp and die. such a pretty card to decorate.
