Season's Tweetings...

Good morning peeps, happy Tuesday to you :-) We went on a class trip to Lush yesterday afternoon and had a go at making soap. It was a but messy but really good fun. We went to a local ice-cream parlour last week and sampled several different flavours. Have to say I am rather enjoying this change of job ;-) We are off to a cathedral on Thursday, I am a little less excited about that trip...!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? I have but am starting to panic that I haven't done as much as I should have done. We are buying the boys a games console & games between them and I have just ordered slippers, pyjamas and dressing gowns. Christmas musts! I have ordered my mum and dad one of the ceramic poppies on display at the Tower of London. When the display is removed they will have one of the poppies sent to their home to keep.
