Well here we are folks...and just in time for Christmas...I have loved the build up to it, as I always do...all the buying and making chrimbo pressies...wrapping them up and decorating the house with vintage and modern decs.
Its been a lot easier too! and as it has been so cold and icy out there I have got alot of my pressies online....Fred (my hubby) loves his scrapbooking, so I have known what to buy for him! and Rosie gave me a long list and told me just to pick a few items for her....Bless!
I bought these boots, just in time for more snow to arrive! ....and don't you just love them?
When I saw them...I squeeled and just had to buy a pair, as they are just like Converse's, but in wellie form! with real laces....mine are still a bit new at the moment...but it won't be long before they have dirtied up a bit!
Don't you just love them :o) Get yours HERE and tell them Happy sent ya :o)
My Christmas Decoration post is coming up next...sorry its a bit late :)!
My lovely Mum invited me along to one of her outings that she arranges for the WHSmiths retirement group...my Dad used to work for them and my Mum has organised the outings for this group for about 25 years now...
Before I show you how we have decorated for Christmas at the Happy House this year...I thought I would show you some pictures from previous years....and have a little old natter at the same time :)
Christmas is such a Happy time of year and I love to go mad! (don't we all!) and for years now I have loved the decorations and all the rushing around....probably more than the day itself!....as once the presents are opened and you have a rather large dinner in your belly...you tend to sleep entirely through the Queens speech! (shhh! I didn't say that! lol!)
Thank you so much for all my lovely Birthday wishesl....you see it is and has always been a very special day indeed! for I was born on My Dads birthday! Yes, this is him (below) with my Mum in the black and white pic and also
in the heart picture frame, that is also his Mary Magdalen, that he
always had placed by his bedside for as long as I knew him. Very sadly
he passed away 24 years ago now...a very long time ago, but as you can
imagine, I still miss him ever so much!
So you can imagine that my birthday, is shared with thoughts of him and I couldn't possibly do this post without mentioning him. I lit a candle for him, as indeed I do every year. He was a great inspiration to me, and you will often find me chatting away to him, as I always feel that he is with me....and more so in this house, as I often can smell the tobacco that he used to smoke on our landing :)....
Freddy always buys me roses for my birthday, as you know how much I love them....and this year he chose these lovely pink ones...Oh I just so love pink, Rosie also bought me a little rose plant...which I adore!
