Keep calm and crochet.

Just a little snowed under with work and Christmassy things at the moment. But I guess looking at the weather that’s still to come here in Cardiff too!

I suppose many of you are in the same situation in preparing presents and ensuring you get all your chores complete in time for the big day……. But this year, I’m not going to let anything bother me and slowly battle through getting over my flu with a bottle of brandy and a smile


And sit back admiring my work! Hehehe

Wishing you all a happy week xxx

  2. And proud of your work you should be to, it’s fabulous. Keep warm, seems like we are all a bunch of demics at the minute. Kikki didn’t want to miss out so she has a scratched eye. Oh and Philip fell on the ice last night. Roll on summer xxx

  3. Hi Helen,

    Bulls eye blocks are finished do I need to block the blocks before I put everything together??
    Hope Richard took good care of you while you was sick.
    Stay well and warm.

  4. Sorry to hear you’ve had the flu Helen, I’m just recovering from a chest infection, completely lost my voice, then it croaked for a week but it’s back to normal now thank goodness. I’m trying to keep Christmas low key this year, we are having a lucky Christmas dip instead of buying presents this year and you know what I don’t care about the chores haha. Look after yourself and enjoy that Brandy xx

      Hope you’re feeling better.. what did you get in the lucky dip?
