Awkward portrait at Christmas

This is what happens behind the scenes at Christmas time

Greetings – This post was written in response to Sue’s post over at Sizzling Towards Sixty and Beyond where she asked some of her favourite bloggers to share their thoughts about Christmas.  Sue has kindly shared a snippet of my post (thanks again Sue).

Weekly photo challenge: A gathering – of tea pots and family?

Document a gathering and share your interpretation…. This is my interpretation of a gathering for this week’s photo challenge.  I love a good cup of tea and at a recent gathering we noticed that the tea pots looked like they were having their very own meeting.

A special Guest Blogger – my daughter wrote this for me, about me

My youngest daughter, Eliza, has written her first ever blog post!  We were together with family over the Christmas break and she presented me with a framed version of her post (below) for my recent birthday.  She also said she’d like to share it on my blog as she’d really like an ‘audience’.  She now has the awesome honour of being my first ever…
