A friend/neighbour is an active member of the Royal British Legion and today was involved in the annual Christmas dinner for some of the elderly veterans. She was presented with this lovely bouquet of flowers in thanks. Imagine my surprise when she knocked on my door and presented me with them this afternoon! She said the fun and laughter on the faces of the veterans was thanks enough for her today and she felt that DH and I would benefit more from having these beauties in our home right now, wasn't that a wonderful gesture. I'd like to share them with you all and thank you for listening to my rambling and moaning recently.
Here are a couple of little friends i've made. I can share them now they've been received. The bunny i named 'Holly' as its apt for this time of year. It was my first attempt at the little penguin - the knitted bits looked real weird and strange and i really didn't think it was going to turn out looking anything like it should. She went off in the post unamed ... what do you think we should call her??
Advent chocaholic update .... yesterday is was the chocolate truffle :-) and todays flavour was orange cream :-( Thats not one i like so as DH was being a good boy i let him enjoy this one. The toffee penny i really dont like, you can come over and eat that one Rachael - they always end up left in the tin and go in the bin LOL
