...when we celebrate the birth of our first child. 15 years old..wow!! We celebrated as he wanted..with the extended family enjoying spaghetti and meatballs. We are very lucky too, in that this boy is still happy with Lego for his main gift :) I made a wintry birthday cake for a change...many of us nearly lost teeth to those silver balls! Having a birthday 5 days before Christmas must be hard going but we try and keep everything separate.
This is also the time of year when today marks another year gone since my lovely Mum died. This evening will be the 7th year without her here...although I still feel her with me, so she not really gone. The thing I do miss though, is being able to just pick up the phone and talk to her, tell her those silly things/happenings, that don't really mean much, but are great to share. I'm quite sure she's been checking in on the progress of my Hut and would have loved to have done some crafting with me there.
I'm actually feeling very positive today. I've been to the Christingle service at school this morning, then dropped off an order. This afternoon my sister and I are going to see the Book of Remembrance at the Crematorium. Neither of us have seen it yet as we usually go to the cemetery where we scattered her ashes, so this year will be different. Then this evening I've got the last order to finish and the marzipan to put on the cake (which I only managed to make yesterday!).
I would like to thank you all for sticking with me through this up and down, busy busy, year. I shall try very hard to post more regularly in this lovely online world next year.
Solistice blessings for today, Yuletide greetings/Christmas wishes for the 25th and lots of love and happiness for the New Year.
