Wishing you a Very Happy Christmas

Wow it is certainly a busy time for us all.  With having 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, not to mention 6 children and the rest of my family; am feeling a bit worn out.  But the cards are done, decorations up and nearly finished the wrapping.  Its been a hectic time with trips to the hospital and the doctors......not to mention the chemist...........aaaah to be young again............ We were both saying the other day, gone are the days when we threw a few clothes in a suitcase and jumped on a plane............now we need a case just for the pills and potions............Our combined ages make 140 years, so its nothing unusual to find us fast asleep on the settee after we have had our lunch............lol


This double page spread is from my A3 journal.   I started it in February this year and have only just got around to finishing it. There are many layers as just couldn't see where it was going to go, but am happy with it now and can close the book..........

We have a special Paint Party Friday this week for a very special lady and hope you will pop over and see what is happening.  My contribution will be blogged on Friday 20th December HERE should you like to see what am talking about.

Take care of yourselves and have a very Happy Christmas.  Hugs Annette xx
