The first Sunday in December is the Christmas church service in the little chapel in our plaza, unfortunately it poured with rain so the traditional refreshments afterwards of thick sweet hot chocolate and cake were served in the old school house. It was certainly well attended though and we were presented with this beautiful plant afterwards, so bright and cheerful
Have been pottering about in the craft room though.....been knitting hubby a special wrist/hand warmer to help his hand and also some little thumb covers, I adapted the pattern from making the arms of a rabbit, sounds daft, but worked well
A suffolk puff decoration to match the stars and a little wreath made from the inner circle of a used reel of tape, padded and wrapped with a fluffy white wool, ribbon roses and beads glued onto garden foliage finished it off.
Printed out some fun labels,(sorry can't remember where to link it) quite back to basics sitting gently colouring in and sprinkling glitter
|Did make more but have already used them for the UK parcels|
I spied a bag with approx 250 tiny soft white balls for 1 euro, couldn't pass those up so a couple of bags dropped into my basket.........a few beads to make a little wreath then I couldn't resist making two tiny snowmen.....................
Tuesday saw us in Benidorm again, DD was having her PET TAC scan, this time it was 2 lots of yukky liquid to swallow plus the usual injected dye, she then had to sit alone and wait for over an hour before the scans. They also wanted 2 scans, but at least let her out in between to have something to break the 6 hour fast.
it was very emotional as it is two years ago this month that this journey began and the trepidation of waiting now until we get the results is going to seem like an age. They gave her the usual speal of do not go near children, pregnant ladies etc, so she queried about her new kittens she has just adopted and was told not to go nearer than a metre of them for 24 hours!
Sun's out so we are taking lunch up to the naya (it was 22 c in there yesterday) so warm up and chill out?? oh you know what I mean!!
