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.

  1. Love the fab image and design.Just gorgeous.Have to say I haven't started yet on the Christmas shopping, will have to start. Ooh I didn't know you could purchase the poppys what a fab thought for your Mum and Dad.xxx

  2. Does sound like you are enjoying your new job Sarah, you will need to wrap up warm for the Cathedral trip, even in Summer they seem cold.

    I've not bought a single present for Crimbo as yet, running very late this year, I seem to put so much preparation into the part for Joy that everything else got sidelined, and October seems to be a month of NHS activity yet again.

    Anyhow, your card today is lovely.
