❑❒ gifted

our usual low key Christmas was even more 
so this year ~
it wasn't meant to be!
the first time we had been invited to my
Aunt & Uncles for the 25th
and I got a dose of salmonella poisoning from
a meal in a restaurant the night before

my beautiful girl was so understanding at our
change of plans

we had a lazy day, just the two of us
watching films, all cosy by the fire
she also gave me beautiful treats
I adore those little green earrings
and an ostrich feather duster I've always wanted
brilliant plant markers from my little sister
I do like a practical gift
sweet scented herbes gathered
and beautifully packaged by
my lovely friend Suzie
{oh I can't wait to be in Sonnac again!}
chocolate chocolate!
you know me so well
this crazy knitted scarf from Robert
I've named it the seaweed scarf
and this amazing vintage picnic set from my 
bezzie, Sue
inside too ~
a bar of choc, a gorgeous hipscarf for belly dancing
and a Vajazzle
oh she is a hoot!

ps. you'll be pleased to know I am almost back to
normal {whatever that is}
and a complaint has been sent to the food safety 
department who will be visiting the restaurant concerned
in the next week!

☯ brighter days ahead

tis the season and as the
Winter solstice passes
my thoughts go to those 
who are not where they would like to be 
and those no longer here

the days will begin to lengthen
and the light strengthen

as usual I make no resolutions to break
just a phrase
for the coming year
it is ~
get real

have a happy holiday 
and see you on the sunnier side
