The kids are back at school at last, well, they’ve been back a couple of weeks now but as you can see I’ve been slow to come back to cyberspace. One reason is of course I’m getting ready for varsity to start but the other is that Great Aunty Nora passed away. Long time readers will remember Nora and her uber stash of craft goodies, we moved her into a home in November 2007. Nora was 98, still cracking jokes and smoking cigarettes. She was a fine old dame and I’ll miss her.
This little angel comes from my childhood. She is quite tasteless, just the way I like her. This is shameless nostalgia.
Having a birthday this time of year is a bit hard – everyone is so busy, so we were very happy that so many people could make it to the party.
Stellar decorated her own cake this year, it was a lovely day.
One of my new favourite things about Christmas are the stunning Christmas stockings that Billie made us all last year. The handwork is amazing and they are big enough for the grown-ups to get a bottle of something 😉
