My Weekend

small rose 2

This weekend has been quite a busy one for me.  

Laura and Kevin were coming through on Saturday - and it's always lovely to see them.  Laura is 22 weeks pregnant now - that's over half way there!!! 
 Laura is a very slim girl but is now just starting to have a lovely pregnancy bump and she is absolutely blooming and looking lovely. She is keeping well apart from some back pain which they think may be a trapped nerve - hopefuly that will get better quickly.

On Saturday evening my Sis-in-law, had asked me if I wanted to go to a Dickens Christmas reading.  Now that is something I wouldn't normally go to but I thought why not - and there was a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, who could say no to that :)) 
 I have to say it was a very pleasant evening. 
Anne and I had a good blether (not during the reading, I hasten to add) and the narrator read the Scrooge story - he was very good.

Sunday it was a day of what should I do first. Housework, Christmas card writing, present wrapping, hoovering, cooking.  So many things to do!!!

Well, I did some housework, Danny and I went for a walk along the beach (wait a minute that wasn't on my list!) it was a lovely walk and we took the camera and got some quite good pictures. 
I made some dinner and I did write some Christmas cards but still got quite a lot to do and I never wrapped any presents. 

Oh well there is always tomorrow :))

I also wanted to say that my heart goes out to everybody that was affected by the terrible tragedy that happened in Newtown primary school. 
I can't watch the news as it is just so upsetting.
 I don't suppose we will ever know why individuals do these terrible acts.

I'm glad you went for the beach walk with Danny. That's more important than all those other chores...!

What a lovely deep red rose surrounded by two bright yellow ones.
How lovely to go to a Dickens Christmas reading. I love "A Christmas Carol" and the character of Scrooge is excellent. I love to watch the film each year with actor Albert Finney!
Mmmmmm! Mulled wine and mince-pies, my favourite Christmas treats.
Have a lovely family Christmas, Ellie, granny to be! Sandra

Ellie so glad that you had such a lovely weekend... and what a blessing to have that unscheduled walk. Glad that your daughter is doing well, and before you know it, you will be a grandma. It is a tragedy what happened in Connecticut. I was practically wordless about it. You just get "stuck" on what to say! Makes you appreciate all of the many blessings in your own life and gives you such a heavy heart for the families of those vicitms.
