Merry Christmas




It's been another glorious day, not quite as warm thankfully, but the sun is shining after a dull day yesterday. I can hardly believe we are at the end of the 4th week of the school holidays.
 I need to organise a trip to Edinburgh and another to Renfrewshire to catch up with friends and relatives, it's also a good excuse for some retail therapy, I love shopping on my own though, I can take as long as I want, without holding anyone up or hurrying them along.
 Thanks to everyone for all the lovely comments I appreciate them greatly.

Oh Wow! this is so beautiful Meg! what a fab layout and design! I adore the James Bear images and you've coloured him beautifully! Love the gorgeous embossing and the pretty border with the gingham ribbon… really stunning!
Thanks for joining us at MAWTT!
Hope you manage to organise your trips out… I used to love shopping on my own too! I do most of it online nowadays because of my spine pain, but it's not quite the same as proper shopping! it's nice when you see things on chance or grab a bargain! :-))
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
Big hugs
Sue xx
