It's been a couple of weeks since I joined SIAN and her merry band of 'wavers'.....life has been busy here in 'the slow lane'....Christmas Bazaars, Carol Concerts, shopping for the local Food Bank and - of course- decorating not only my own house but the Drop-In Centre are a few of the things which have been going on.....not to mention my Ornament Exchange last week.
Me on Monday?
Labelling these packages for the FOURTH time!....they have been the bane of my life for two weeks (at least!) now.....Craig and I packaged them up when he was home a couple of weeks ago....FEDEX have been supposed to be picking them up, but every time the very patient, non-English speaking lady turns up the labels I have printed off have been wrong!! Another set has been printed and the pick-up was supposed to have been today....guess what?!- it didn't happen...hey ho!!
Whilst waiting for the pick-up I managed to spend a little time in the garden....and look what I found:
who would believe it?!...even here!
Some other pretty sights in my garden:
the Bizzy Lizzie is still flowering...it's struggling a bit now but valiantly still producing flowers even after our long, hot summer
and of course my trusty nasturtiums, which just self seed and spread everywhere if I'm not careful!
Hoping your week-before-the-week -of Christmas holds good things and not TOO much stress!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
PS....I'm hoping to get around to some blog reading this week...looking forward to catching up with you all!
