Merry Christmas Everyone

Hello everyone. It's hard to believe that Christmas is here once more. I have been flat out. Work has been rather pre-occupying. I had a wee problem with a lack of hours and felt quite panicky. Working some relief hours in the local nursing home has been a godsend. I am trying to finish off the last minute bits and pieces. I have been away from here for ages and have missed it. I miss catching up with all of you. I was shocked to hear about my fav other man Mort and so pleased to hear a happy outcome. Thanks for the txts Mort. sad to notice more losses in J-Land. This time of year is especially hard when we lose people or suffer hardships or ill health, so, to those in that position, I hold you all that little bit closer and will say a wee prayer for you all.

Took a mad turn yesterday and went to Marks and Spencers to buy the both sets of parents a gift, now for those of you who are not familiar with that store, may I just tell you that It is rather more expensive than the others. Good quality though. Not a place I frequent!! lol. So there I was absolutely shattered, wandering aimlessly around M&S searching for 2 gifts. I eyed up the hampers but at £50 each, I found that way over my budget. I was told by the lady that they could make them up with Items I choose and they would wrap them up and add a bright red or gold bow. The baskets were £10 on their own so I declined, as I would never ever pay a tenner for an empty basket! lol. I chose x2 canvas bags and chose my goodies like christmas cake and yule log and chocs etc. They looked amazing when they were wrapped and I am glad i got them, I just hope they all like them.

I don't have to worry about my wee treasure as Santa brings all hers!! Hmmm. What a wonderful man he is. I will duly write my note to him and make sure I put it somewhere he will definately see it! lol. I must go and grab a coffee and lay out work clothes for tomorrow. I will get round to reading your journals just as soon as I can. Feel free to email me. I hope you all have a spectacular Christmas and New Year. Be Happy. Love and Best Wishes to you all. Take Care, Back Soon. xx

It is good to "see" you again!! I'm glad to hear you are pleased with your gifts from Marks & Spencer. Being in the States, I've never heard of that store.

Wishing you a very merry christmas and a peaceful and happy 2009.

I wouldn't worry about visiting mine Pam. I haven't had a lot of time to enter in my journal. I tried yesterday and had to delete it as I fiddled about with it too much and got nowhere fast. Lol!
Hope you have a Happy Christmas too.
I may not be around much between now and January as I have family coming over Christmas, then we are going down to my son in Wolverhampton for the New Year.
Hope your 'wee treasure' gets everything she wants from Father Christmas. Oops! You too! Lol!
