Gazing at the sky again.............

as you might know I love looking at the clouds & what did I see a jet, I know very basic but I always make a wish for the people on board, wishing them a safe flight, happy holidays & wonder what they are really doing in their life, I even go as far as to make holiday plans for them :) Yes this confirms what only my best friends know already I'm stark raving mad!! Have a great day & hold your breaths for snow photos to come.

Bon Fire's Here

It all started with the marshmallows........DS2 & DD had a fight over the packet,................. DD said but Mum brought them for the fire............so  DS2 kindly  had the idea & action to go & cut a big pile of pine logs to make us a winter bon fire, with the cold weather it's just what we needed for a family night!!! After dinner the other night we went  &  sat by the fire, we also cooked & ate a the important  packet of marshwallows.

My Birthday & Our 18 years Anniversary

Well I really think we both should have a huge medal as getting to 18 years sure has been very hard some days, esp. this last year, times I really didn't think we would make it. Fingers crossed that's all behind us & smooth sailing now for the next 18!! If only that was true ha ha have to stay positive as We've been through so much heart ache & happy times together.

18 read roses one for each year,  my birthday also, an ice cream cake from Cole's!!

Been very busy again!!!

Dinning Room before

Dinning Room  after painting

These aren't great photos but you can see the differance, both photos are taken with the furniture out, when I get around to cleaning the windows I'll up date with the finished all tidy look!!!!
I must say that the painting was a huge job, my trusty SIL was here doing all the fiddly bits, but it still took us both 4 full days. That was the lounge, dinning & kitchen corner plus all trims!! I'm very happy with the end colour & so much fresher then old brown walls :)
