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
