There is a logical reason for my being here but more about that in a little while.
So what has been good in my life this last week.
First there was Christmas Eve into Christmas Day it all went really well. Why should this rock my world well........The last few times my family have got together my friends it hasn't been pretty, accusations, crying blah blah blah. There were threats made (by me) and it was just lovely., everyone was on the their best behaviour and a good time was had by all.
My husband - he made my musical world. A few years ago in one of those 3 months in your life when it all just goes wrong, I was just leaving Sheffield and my flat was burgled. They took many things including A - S of my very extensive (400 +) CD collection. In that collection was The Bluetones albumn - 'Last Chance Saloon'. Now my copy had been a limited edition complete with cardboard saloon doors. A couple of years ago my mum tried to get me a copy with the result it was being reprinted and 2 years later still nada. This year my lovely husband got hold of the electronic copy and recorded onto CD so he could 'give' it to me for Christmas :)
My little toddler fella. This Christmas he asked for a battery turning electric spaghetti fork and was quite delighted when Santa delivered. This is the first year he has got the hang of Christmas and presents so it has been very special :)
Which leads me neatly on to the reactions of the two people who I made secret santa gifts for . I always think it can be a tad risky making (and sometimes even buying things). I love making things and when the person who receives them is delighted it makes life just well splendid quite frankly! Which is why I am a here, as part of my secret Santa stalking was involved and I loved the idea of this post, so with all revealed and out in the open here I am!
Which jumps nicely into the beautiful journal I received as one of secret Santa's from Doone - I haven't blogged it yet, I am still finding my way around all its gorgeousness, but I will do soon.......
So thanks for having me. it has of course been an odd week with all the festivities and we had an open house party today so my crafting has been at zero or less but I have plans a foot oh yes big plans my friend. Have a good one and I'll 'see' you next Friday.
