SOMETIMES....

... finding the silver lining can be hard...... ...  THEN something comes along that helps point you in the right direction xx

Work may be manic and VERY tiring at the moment.... BUT I only have 2 more to do and I am off xx

The weather may be wet, cold and dark... BUT my house is warm and dry, and unlike a lot in the UK at the moment I am not threatened with flooding xx

I miss my daughter very much... BUT with modern technology I can keep in touch and see and hear her, unlike when family left and the only contact.. if any was by letter xx

THEN when you start to get a bit down THIS arrives on your mat..


it is my parcel for the secret Santa swap xx


I am allowed to open this packet... to find..


they are such fun and GREAT xx


my parcel is so so beautiful xx AND wrapped in fabric ... JOY xx

Off to keep smiling

Diane xx

I love the Christmas stockings. Are they made out of wool?

The flooding looked depressing. We had several days of cold and wet but at least this morning the sun is back. Gotta love that holiday cheer!

Fabric and Christmas gifts will always cheer us up! You got a lovely parcel full of great stuff!

It's really hard, particularly at the moment when all I can see out of the window is grey, gloomy skies and rain, to find a silver lining, but so glad you managed to find some in your wonderful parcel.

It brought a tear to my eye to read my little gift could cheer you up.Had wondered if the flood had effected you Diane. Pleased you are fine but it is a sad time.

Isn't it great that when you are feeling exhausted and upset, the universe decides to change your part of the world for you!
We all have to endure those times, but it never lasts, thank goodness!
Smile and things improve
