Xmas Crafts


Oh i do hate the clocks going back as it feels like i spend my life walking the dog !! (oh well it's good exercise for me, even though i never seem to loose weight !!) - as i try to walk her in the daylight, so my OH doesn't have to walk her in the dark, when he gets home from work !!

Oh well i won't have to do it at all this weekend, as i'm off to Birmingham Friday morning - if we get there early enough we are going over in the afternoon, if not then it will be first thing Saturday morning, yipee i'm looking forward to it, a weekend away in a nice hotel (we are staying at The Ramada, near to the NEC) with an indoor swimming pool and crafting - what more could a girl want !!!
