Present For Daddy

Something which cost me little money, lots of effort, love and patience: portraits of my three children..

...and I'm rather pleased with how they turned out!

It's Getting Closer..

Been very busy back and forth to the post office to send jewellery to their future homes. One very nice lady from the USA bought a ring which I had to send to a loved one in England. It was very weird writng a card to someone I didn't know saying 'I Love You', I felt quite privilieged and I thought it was a really ingenious way of doing your shopping for those in other countries. So the shop is emptying, I have a few bits I can list but I think the rush is over for a while. Found time to ice the cake tonight:

Not quite the work of art I had in mind but little pixie face insisted on helping and as I have a feeling she will fast grow into a replica of her recalcitrant 16 year sister, I'm enjoying these moments whilst they last.

Christmas is Coming

Tree decorated...

Christmas cards made...

To paraphrase Rolf: can you tell what it's gonna be yet?

Also still listing new items in the shop to replace those flying off the shelves, well shelf actually:

Where Have I Been

Difficult times, blogging about trivia seemed incongruent with how I was feeling. Blogging about it seemed too depressing, so I did what I do best to soothe my soul- got into bed with nature.

The 'babies' didn't realise they would get on so well, having forgotten in the hustle and bustle of the daily grind that they actually liked as well as loved each other

Night time on the campsite..

..daytime too

..meeting up with old friends and working together to solve a problem..

Helping out at harvest time - victorian style!

Trying to find those elusive mermaids..

Still looking..

No mermaids, just a playful Pablo in the surf.

Here's to putting troubles to bed

Does Anyone Know What This Is?

This was found in my parents' loft:

It looks like a wasps' nest in terms of its papery consistency, but is only the size of an average hen's egg.
Answers on a postcard...
