PHEW!!....

... there has been A LOT of grandma duties this last week .. I'm NOT complaining xx .. just saying x.. and this weekend there will be MORE!!

 .. you can always spot Christmas coming as it is not just the kids who have a social life!... and last night was my turn x

CAN YOU BELIEVE that it is 12 months since I retired!!.. neither can I !! Over this time I have kept in touch with some of the girls I worked with by organising a night out every 2 months .. the core number is 5 but changes up and down due to "life" and work commitments .. 



each time I make a small gift for the girls xx Last night was the cup-cosies xx

We had a great time .. catching up on gossip.. laughing .. THEM moaning about the Christmas off-duty... ME not!! lol x all good fun... AND THEN....


....they gave me a card and a voucher for Hobbycraft... oh! I will be forced to visit ... again! lol xx

NEXT years dates have been worked out .. and I will be booking the January night soon xx

I am off to a Do-Your-Own-Thing-Day with Congleton Quilt group to-morrow .. so I might just have some sewing to show you ... I DO have a hand sewing project on the go that has had work done on it .. but I want to show the top when it is finished rather than in dribs and drabs xx

Hope YOU are having a social life for the holidays too xx

Diane xx
