Miss-tree and dad

Long time no post - sorry, life has been a bit hectic. School is busy, Ruby is just Ruby and I am feeling a little tired. Anyway....

tonight we have been to church and put up Miss-tree. I forgot my camera but did manage to take a photo on my phone. We are back there Sunday so I will take the camera then. Thank you so much to everyone who sent an ornament - Maria's arrived yesterday and I need to take a close up photo at church. Thanks Maria it's gorgeous.


Last Monday was my dad's 83rd birthday and we took him to the Cross Keys Ghurka restaurant. It was a lovely meal and we had taken a small birthday cake which they brought out accompanied by birthday music. It was so funny when they brought out the knife to cut it - not a knife a splendid Ghurka sword. Again the photo is on my phone but as you can see dad was very happy.



A few weeks ago the Head of English and I took 12 students to the Town Hall to take part in a Public Speaking competition. This is quite a new thing for our school and not something our students would normally consider doing. They were absolutely brilliant and our Team B actually won :) we are soproud of them. The local press came to school this week to take some photos, and the write up is in tonight's paper.

I have a very busy weekend - we're out tomorrow with my school colleagues, Saturday we're at a friends for dinner and Sunday MIL is coming for Christmas dinner as they will be away for the festivities.

I have finished 'Peace' for the Little House Ornies SAL, it's a Country Cottage Needleworks design from Just Cross Stitch Christmas 2007. I've stitched it over one; this is my third over one ornament and I'm really enjoying it. I'm not sure what I'm going to pick to do next, if I get any time before Christmas.


I hope you are all ready for the festive season, happy stitching.

    Dad does look a bit menacing brandishing that sword!!

    Well done Team, what a great achievement.

    Nice ornie, i like the tinyness of stitching over 1, trouble is it becomes addictive
