I hope everyone had a wonderful christmas and is still enjoying the festive season. We had a lovely christmas day and are going to friends this evening.

My neice wrote a christmas poem for us, I was really chuffed she took the time to do it - here it is:-

'Tis the time for christmas cheer,
pull a cracker and have a beer
sharing jokes and eating a sweet
spend some time just putting up your feet.

Put on you favourite chrismtas CD
sing along whilst decorating the tree,
sitting back and watching the Great Escape
falling asleep and lying in 'till real late.

Having time off work to spend at home
building snowmen and eating toblerone.
Wearing your christmas jumper and musical tie
just lounging around and eating loads of pie.

Don't get all partied out though
by always staying up really late -
be sure to leave some energy
for the New Year.....2008. :) :)

Also on christmas eve I had a phone call from my elderly next door neighbour asking me if I could keep an eye on her house while she and her husband went away to her daughters for christmas. She said they would be back on Thursday and would I make sure there were no cards stuck in her letter box. Now, the reaon she wanted to make sure about the letter box is that they will only be married for..........wait for it...............................................................................
70 YEARS. WOW how amazing is that, I knew they were married a long time but 70 years, that is absolutely brilliant. She is 87 and he is 93 - bless them.
70 years of marriage is their platinum wedding anniversary.
This is the card I have made for them...........
