Highly Commended !!

Hiya, Just a quick post to show you our Christmas window, We got a Highly Commended yipee ! Every Christmas Knighton Chamber of Trade holds a Christmas window competion, and this years theme was a Christmas Carol, so we eventually chose 'O' Christmas Tree, thanks to everyone who crocheted and knitted things for the tree and window, it was a real team effort !!

and look at me in my hat !! (have to admit I cheated on this one, sorry girls !!)

Happy December !

Hello, Sorry its been ages but been oh so busy ! had a fantastic time in Australia, sad to leave my sister and her family, and miss the 30oC weather and the pool !but it is good to be back ! still don't feel like I should be working and think I have post holiday blues !!
Mum coped brilliantly in the shop without me, although she was a little stressed and pleased to have me back !I thank her immensely for everything she has done ! Thanks to Sue for all her hard work in my absence and thanks to Barbara !

The tree is up in the shop and I have a new friend, Names on a postcard please ! I want to name her Lola (but Mum says its a floozies name !) so any suggestions ! She came from the lovely and thanks to Julie x
