My eldest daughter has had a really awful Christmas ,with illnessess.both her 2 daughters and herself have had this flu,so we couldnt even go up there,we usually go every Christmas morningmthis year my other son took us up in his 4x4 in the evening for a quick visit,
she was too ill for visitops so we didnt stay long.
She is a little better in herself ,but she has now lost her voice,lol.
My OH is also coming down with either a cold or maybe manflu.my turn next,I think.

Any way,as this will be my last blog of 2010 ,I would like to wish all my followers a very Happy New Year ,and hope all goes well in 2011,for us all.

A little card with a dress and handbag,hope its ok for my grand daughters 15th birthday.

What a day ,today was.

Another little 3D Tilda card ,how this card was crafted is a mistery...........it was done amongst ,hammering,drilling ,dust flying electritians ,who came at 9 oclock to rewire my whole house.
What a palaver,me,being me ,thought they were due tomorrow so had only just got out of bed and had my first cup of tea,
First thing they did was turn off the heating and electric.and then,being workers leave all the doors open to the elements,it was - 10 when I got up .
By 10 o clock we were froze ,so they took pity on us and connected the central heating so we could have radiators,not much help when they leave doors open,lol.
Enough of my winghing,they have gone now,be back tomorrow though,cos they,forgot ,to wire up my bedroom light.


This was at 10 oclock this morning.while I was sitting in the mess ,crafting away,like a mad woman. trying to keep busy to forget I was freezing.
hope every one else has been warmer than me today
