good news!

After a worrying few weeks I'm pleased to say that, after his BIG operation, only yesterday, our Dad is doing very well and up for visitors! That's the best Christmas present we could wish for. His heart will be even better now than before! x

I have this Festive debate every year! To Tinsel or not to Tinsel..that is the question.

I did put some tinsel on the tree last night to please 'him indoors' but it's
posh tinsel and only around the bottom- one has to compromise with these things..... x

For my Father in Laws 70th Birthday.

I missed off his hair on the first draft & quickly had to add some...thanks to 'him indoors' pointing out my mistake...oops, nearly a very embarrassing gift......Can you tell he likes golf?

Christmas card completed for my friends dog.....he'll even write them himself I think?

Merry Christmas from Henry the labradoodle.

The Bride was more beautiful than ever, the groom, just dashing and I co-ordinated my outfit with a few large glasses of red wine...My 9 year old niece did a choice impression of my ' wobblyness' the next day ! Must have been the last one I had that did it..........must have been ?

Tigerprint Love & Marriage Competition Winner !

Well knock me down with a little birds feather..I won the  Tigerprint 'Love & Marriage' competition.
I am so so pleased and would like to thank all of the team at Tigerprint for considering my work a worthy winner.
I'd also like to thank my family & friends, my partner, my next door neighbour, the man in the corner shop.........and the band starts playing.....

Whistle while you work !

I helped friends at the wkd renovate their new shop. We sanded, sanded some more...then some more...then painted and painted some more...and a bit more...I'm still finding plaster dust in places I'd rather not say. The Specky Wren opens very soon.....

Le petit prince......

The Beauty Bug

Good luck to my sister Katherine Fowler who has opened her new & improved salon area for The Beauty Bug in Ansdell, Lancashire. She'll do your nails, pluck your eyebrows and even get rid of unsightly nasal hair...but I have no idea what kind of woman would get that done? honest I don't !

Last week I met the Mayoress of Lewes, while quaffing champagne
with my friend Gem... She was very nice and told me about her 'collars' history...she was just showing off frankly as she could tell I was jealous of her BLING !
