Walking Off The Excess....

Whilst I do love Christmas and all the yummy food we have it's always good to move about a bit in order to help move any excess food I may have wolfed down.

So yesterday I headed with the inlays for a lovely walk along the canal.

It was frozen solid underfoot and very crisp but you soon warmed up as you got moving.

And we have a yummy hot chocolate in the pub at the end, notice the lack of whipped cream!
(well I was being good after all, I even gave my chocolate away!)
Now I need to do quite a few more to help get back into shape asap.

Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder...

Did you miss me?
I've not run off honest, its just been manic.
So let me fill you in on what's been going on:

I've left the job I once loved and the company I had been with for what seems like a life time and took voluntary redundancy.

And whilst it was very sad to leave the people behind, not that I won't see them all again of course, I am very excited for my new job.

I finished on the Friday and started my new job on the Monday.

No rest for the wicked eh!

Add to that lots of training and new people to meet, along with a cough/cold from hell (thanks for sharing hubby!) its fair to say I'm feeling slightly frazzled.

So the weeks have consisted of battling a cold and swotting up on new information I need to know for my new job.

Add into the mix a big family Christmas (which I love by the way) and as you can see its all been very busy.

That said its almost a new year and with a bit of luck and organisation 2015 should be a calmer one, I hope.

Hoping you all had an amazing Christmas.

My Kilt And I......

Today has been a kilt day.

Smart enough for visiting friends, yet comfy enough to know its a day off.

I only have to remember to not bend over too much for fear of flashing tomorrows washing!
The joys of being tall(ish) I suppose.

Oh well, I best crack on as I need to be getting my tree up or at this rate it's never going to happen!

A Special Plate For A Rather Special Fella....

My evenings are always filled with orders, either for my etsy shop, eBay or just general orders.
And the past few nights seem to have been filled with these plates: 

Lots of different names, all ready to be placed out on Christmas eve with a special treat or two.

And the Santa gift pack is really popular too.

And of course Reindeer food and sparkles to be sure your house is located.
(No glitter is this bag of goodies to hurt the birds, this is animal safe)

My poor dining room table is covered in the last boxes and packages to go to the post office.
Which considering its our turn for lunch is a bit of a pest.

My It"s Been Busy....

Sorry for being awol folks, it's just been a little crazy of late.

What with Ashleigh's Birthday, a trip away and all other sorts of goings on.

But one things for sure, life never dull here.
Always something to look forward to.
Such as ashleigh starting a new job.

All grown up yet still my little girl!

Plus she has moved out too!
It's all very strange.

The house is exactly as I left it, no mess at all.  Now that bit is fabulous.
