emotions are running high

I have not blogged for a few days, because emotions are running high here. Christmas is a time of giving, of families, of cheer, BUT for us, it is also a time to reflect and remember those that are no longer with us. It has been a tough weekend for us both and the girls. We decorated the house this weekend, which is always a joyous occasion, although this year it was mixed with tears, as we listened and sang along with Nat and Dean. Lilly is missing Grandad at the moment and very tearful, Peter is missing his Dad a lot as well and we all are needing more TLC and tissues, lol. We will get through this season. I have a house full this year, which i love so much. Its my birthday on Friday, the weekend we are spending with Annie and her family, and tomorrow I am off to spend the day with Sue, and tonight we have Izzy's Christmas play, so much to look forward too.

Here are a few Christmas photos of our home. ( and yes I know I look like a Christmas pud in this photo, roll on january and the New Year diet!)

The girls break up next Wednesday, along with me, so i have lots to finish before i can really start enjoying the Christmas break. Monday is my busiest day, but yesterday i didn't get anything done,,, why you ask? Well i locked myself out of the house!!!! I have a courtesy car at the moment whilst my car is in the garage , and my house keys are not on the other car keys. I leave the house in my usual fluster on a Monday morning, no phone, no purse just keys. drop the children off, chat with a friend outside the school, head off home, jump out of the car and head to the front door and it dawns on me, no house keys!!! Run to a neighbours to borrow the phone to ring MIL, no answer. I still drive over hoping she has a spare key, she is in, but no spare key, hmmmmm, peter cant get home before 4pm if at all and Lilly has a friend round for tea. As I sit and enjoy lots of coffee at MIL, one of Peters uncles walks through the door, hears my dilema, jumps in the car, collects ladders, drives to my house, climbs onto the roof and breaks into the bathroom window and lets me in!!!! Peters uncle is in his 70's!!!! and was my hero yesterday. I got in the house , grabbed the keys and got to the school to pick the girls up and no one was the wiser! I now have the house key on the new set of car keys!!

Pencil Lines went live on Sunday, and I used this months Scrapping Angels kit to do my layout. Love the MME papers, very versatile and I scrapped non Christmas photos with these papers as well. Go and check the lovely work form the DT this week, another inspiration gallery of work to get your creative juices flowing!

I am off to pack the December kit, and start on a magazine editorial this morning. Our internet is still causing problems, so apologizes if I take an age to return emails.
Have a great day and keep warm!

    Hooray for Uncle I say!
    Time is a great healer and although we never forget, we learn to remember with much more love and far fewer tears.
    Hugs to you and your beautiful family.
