Moonlit Waters Page 3 complete (ish)

Well, apart from the very small bit of a wing which I am leaving until I get to the page beneath it, I've completed page 3 of Moonlit Waters and it's starting to come together a bit more.  I am utterly sick of moon colours!

Here's a little progress picture:

Stitched on 25 Count DMC Magic Guide, 2 over 1.

Yet again, so far behind on everyone's posts, will be playing catchup next week!

Pink Swings and Foam Snow

Sometimes you just have to be a bit silly.  Canary Wharf, London is full of drabness.  It's where a lot of suits work in Banks and similar establishments.  If you look around the station, you will see lots of people looking miserable at the prospect of going to their office.  They wear dark coloured suits and coats.

Today on the way out of the station, there was a set of pink swings as part of a promotion.  Very hard to resist.  So I just jumped right on.

Happy New Year!

Hello my friends and a Happy New Year to you all :-)

The hubby and I spent a nice long break with my family over Christmas.  It was nice to be out of the hustle and bustle of London for a little while, although our week was packed with visits to various places, walks in the village where my family live and a little trip to the seaside as well.

Although it was nice to be away, it was also nice to get home again, and we had a day to do a quick flat tidy-up before hosting our close friends for New Years Eve... As is usual, we played some cards, drank some champagne when the clock struck midnight and then settled down on the sofa to watch the remainder of Jools Holland, finally heading to bed after 2am.  It was fun at 7am the next morning when their baby girl woke up wanting attention and the whole house was shattered or hungover!

So now we are into 2013, yay! Hubby had a buffer day before heading back to work today, and we both did absolutely nothing except laze around watching TV, and in the evening we watched the last two Harry Potter films to make it feel a bit like it was still Xmas.

So, a happy 2013 to my followers, wishing you all Health, Wealth and Happiness.  I hope it's a good one.
