On Saturday , Little Miss and I met a friend for coffee, it was cold, and the wind howling at New Quay
Very stormy weather.
Yesterday the first frosts arrived.
Our village local pub arranged a Christmas shopping trip
to Llanelli .
I felt fine going (not so great coming home, another headache!!)
The frost was so thick in places going. ,
but it was bright and looked so like a Christmas
scene you see on a card.
It was nice not to drive and be able
To admire the scenery.
It was really busy considering it was a Monday
but I enjoyed the trip.
I really felt myself getting into the Christmas mood.
All the rest of the Christmas gifts
have now been bought.
Now just to wrap them when little ones
are at school.
I also couldn't resist
a few "extras"
for the fireplace.
Once I give the fireplace a big dust , put the Autumn stuff away
I can put the new stuff out
all sparkles ....
The bits I wanted for swaps have also been
After the fair this weekend
I intend to get the swaps wrapped and sent off by
5th December ish!!!
I always find this time , the end of November rushes by for me.
DH and I are celebrating a "big" wedding anniversary in
Little Miss also has a December birthday
and like Little Man on his birthday, does not want a party,
but she does want to go out
"Somewhere" for lunch.
So for us December is always a busy happy
Feeling rough I have dropped out of Little Man's fair which is
Instead I have put a box of stuff together. for the school
to sell or raffle .
I know my limitations
and know I am not up to 2 big fairs in 3 days.
I took some pictures re the swap I mentioned last time
but it is so dark and gloomy
here they haven't
Turned out well or show any detail
So I will try again for next time.
Little Miss has just got in from school
and dragging me off for more crafting
she is so funny at times!!
"Come on Mum, no time for coffee , time to work!"
On such a wet , windy evening
it seems the perfect past time .
Steak, kidney, stew with dumplings simmering
in the Rayburn....
Smells really yummy
See you soon
