Woohoo...another lightbulb moment...

Hi folks...another lightbulb moment...just like the proverbial buses they seem to be coming along all at once and I'm taking full advantage because no doubt I'll have to wait an absolute age for the next one to arrive. On this occasion it was Sunday's Christmas ornaments that flicked the lightbulb switch....
I could have kept them to hang on my own Christmas Tree but the ornament box is already bulging at the seams...ornaments that my own kids made at school....ornaments that the grandkiddies have made...ornaments I bought in post christmas sales and ornaments that I've collected on my travels over the years. I'm not one of those folks who has to have a colour themed tree so they're a mixture of different styles and colours but each and every one holds special memories.
So why not fix them onto Christmas Cards giving the recipient the choice of using it as a tree ornament and hey it could even become an annual tradition for special friends...


The plastering is coming along nicely...the upstairs walls and the staircase are now as smooth as a baby's bum and I suspect he may be working his magic today in the downstairs hall which means I'll be marooned in the cubbyhole...well that is until I'm allowed out to put the kettle on...which going by past experiences will be often....these builder blokes don't half like their cuppas.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
