Another full day at work. Forgot to take my glasses so did not manage any sewing but did some colouring instead. The moon was stunning tonight. Driving home I wish it would have turned off it's full beam it was very bright. Time I got to the village it was seriously foggy and the moon looked stunning with circles of many colours round it. Phone camera would not do it justice so never bothered taking pictures.
I did spot these on the hospital notice board and loved the thought that had been out into them.
A freezing day. Had to send my auto defroster out for the car. It did not thaw off where the sun had not shone. Sharing this rather than another boring fishery reflection picture.
Christmas Day, again we have decided to volunteer our time and I helped to serve food while hubby spent the whole time up to his elbows in dirty dish water.
By some sheer million to one coincidence as we parked up at the venue there was a taxi dropping off clients for the event. The taxi driver came across and spoke to us,he had traded in the car we are now driving. He thinks he may have roof bars for it and is going to phone us if he finds them.
I bought this top yesterday. I wanted something that was nice but screamed CHRISTMAS in your face when you saw it.Think I succeeded in finding just that.I got a lot of compliments on it. It is now washed and ready to go into the loft with the other Christmas jumpers, t-shirts etc until next year.
Today we did Christmas in our house. As is usual we open presents, have something to eat, just snack food they can pick at, then spend time playing with the younger ones games. Then once the younger ones had been dropped back off we played games with the older children.

First decent walk I have had time for in way to long. So we went along to Failford and were out for over two hours. Bumped into a friend we have not seen in way to long and it was lovely to catch up with his life.
I went today to buy some black bun as I really like the stuff. Hubby has Christmas cake that his sister made and her husband decorates every year. I only eat the marzipan and it seems such a waste. The cake looks amazing.
It has taken me what seems forever to get the first picture cross stitched onto the baby blanket.
