Instead of cooking i order a takeaway as I couldn’t be bothered to cook which was nice. I have since been on the phone to my brother who is trying to put a puzzle together and keeps swearing and telling me i am the worst sister lol Well i am going to watch this film called knocked up and try and sleep hopefully have a longer blog tomorrow night everyone

Christmas Day

So, today was Christmas Day which I spent with my mum, dad, brothers Marc and Jeff my niece and sis in law had a nice Christmas which was lovely. I got some fantastic presents necklace, dressing gown and McDonalds teddies all from my other half

I love all the presents I have had so far. We having another Christmas Day when he gets back. The McDonald’s teddies are what they release each year to raise money for their charity which you can find out more about on their website.

The next picture shows you what I got from my brother Marc Which I am going to sit tomorrow and eat yum yum

My sister, brother in law, nieces and nephew got me

My brother Jeff, sister in law and niece got me all this

 

which I cannot wait to start using it all and put my canvas up on the walls and make my cat and last but all my mum and dad got me some lovely Harry Potter stuff

Which I love and at the moment I am wearing the PJs and still debating if I am going to eat and drink any of it but I do love butterbeer from Harry Potter studios. Oh, and they did get me a selection box but I ate it before I could even post a picture.

Mum made a lovely Christmas dinner but didn’t make me any pudding how naughty was she? But I also felt a little sick after my starter and main. I do wish I got more photos. I also helped my niece win at go fish by taking a photo of my mum’s cards and WhatsApp her the picture. Mum was not happy when she found out lol. Well i hope you all had a lovely day and would like to thank everyone for the gifts even if I haven’t listed them here.

Christmas Eve

So, it’s the night before Christmas and all was quiet all the sounds you could hear was the sweet sounds of cockatiels sleeping. Well that is what I was hoping for but they have decided tonight they want to chirp. I am also talking to my brother on the phone thinking I should really be going to sleep as I am up early ready to go to my mums to spend Christmas Day with her and my dad and who ever else turns up and I also get to huge Bissell the dog

So, what ever you doing tomorrow have a nice day and don’t drink too much and I will have a blog up tomorrow evening night everyone

Nearly Christmas

So, it’s the night before Christmas Eve where most people are tucked up in bed or are worrying if everything is ready for Christmas Day. While I am laying here waiting for my niece to fall to sleep so, I can go to sleep as I am feeling ill. Even though I am getting distracted by the film Arthur Christmas i forgot how good this film was i not seen it in so long.

Tomorrow I am dropping my niece at my mums ready for her mum to pick her up from there I am not sure if I am staying for a little while or going to head home and get my housework done. Well hopefully I am back to normal tomorrow. I am going to go and try and sleep if I don’t get a post up Merry Christmas everyone

Tired and fed up

We are now in December and it’s soo cold. All I am wanting to do at the moment is to get snuggled up under my cover and watch films but it’s such a busy time of the year. Christmas Day is only 2 weeks away and I bet not everyone has finished their Christmas shopping or even thought about it? I have finished but not the wrapping but that will not take that long at all. I think of the rush of getting things done this month is why i feel so tired and fed up as nothing seems to stop. I am hoping it snows like the weather man keeps promising but i do know if that would happen.

In a couple of weeks i am doing a q&a which i will be filming to go on YouTube but i will also post the video on to here so, you can all see it. Its going to be hard for me as its going to be my first ever video and got to actually do some editing. I do read through my blogs as well to make sure there are no mistakes but no one can get everything right first time. So, if you want your question to be answered please leave a comment below and you question maybe used. I will not be making it a daily thing but may do it when i go on days out and stuff so, you can come along with me. It will also help me when trying to remember what i did as i get so forgetful. Any way i better get some sleep got a busy day tomorrow chat to you all soon x

Whitley Bay

I recently stayed at Whitley bay holiday park which I had been dreading since I read the reviews on facebook and trip advisor they all said this park was dirty the caravans had mould and was cold. They also said that the club house had no beer in at all but when I arrived the staff was friendly they showed me on a map how to get to my caravan which is not far from any of the amusements on site. The caravan was clean and tidy, beds were made so, all i needed to do was unpack the only issue I had was that there was a pressure issue with boiler so, had no hot water but they were so, quick to come and sort. Instead of rushing off the first day to do the shopping so, we used the park shop which was a little bit more expensive but, it did beat driving out to find the nearest supermarket. We decided to stay in so, i did some colouring and had an early night.

I am now going to sum up the holiday as its been a two weeks since i been home and i can not remember what i did each day but we did go on the bus 3 times once to Whitley bay town centre which didn’t have much but was a good walk round, the longest trip was to Newcastle town centre which took a while to get to but when we got there we went round town centre which was huge and I also found a massive wool shop which i got a pattern book out of and the last pace we went to Blyth which was a very small town but it was a day late. We came home a day earlier which was good as meant I could sort everything i needed to do before everything got busy.

One thing i learnt is don’t always listen to the reviews as they can be totally wrong so, even if the reviews are rubbish check it. Out yourself because you could just be as surprised as we were.

Thanks for readi..

Sorry it’s been so long

As you all know I haven’t wrote a blog since I showed you all the squirrel which I made. Which seems like ages ago. Well since then I have had a new baby niece born. She was born at 31 weeks and 6 days old. She is still in hospital but is doing well and should be out soon. I have made her a blanket which I am waiting for her to come out of the hospital to give it to her. I will post a picture of the blanket as soon as she has got it.

Other than going to crocheting club I haven’t actually done much. A new craze has started here in my local area called love on the rocks. It is where you paint a rock and go and hide it in your local area for other people to find and then they get to choose to either re-hide it someone else to find or take it home. It also asked that you share a picture on the love on the rocks facebook page so people can see what has happened to their rock and how far it has gone. I have done two rocks one I know has moved towns and one I have no idea after the first person found it what happened to it. If you would like to take part search love on the rocks uk on facebook.

I better be going to sleep as its very late as I am writing this even though it’s going to take me ages to sleep like it has been I probably still be awake at 3am which I am hoping not well any way. I will write you all a blog soon Night everyone

latest crocheting projects

here are the latest crocheting projects that I can show you they are both out of Kerry Lords Edwards Menagerie crocheting book which i love the first one was the squirrel

I edited his tail was meant to be loops but I didn’t like the stitch so changed it to what it has got.7

the last project I have done is an alpaca for my niece and here it is

as you can see its very colourful and bright. the top knot took the longest part to do as it’s a lot of chains. Kerry Lord’s books I would recommend to any crochet they are amazing.

until next time night everyone
