If ever there was the perfect name for a blog it has to be Bekimarie's, in fact if she hadn't already used the name its what I would have called my blog.
So far so good - woke up late for me (8.30am) and was just in time to say goodbye to MrVV who has headed off to Twickenham to watch England play New Zealand.
Have been to see my Mum to deliver christmas pressies that she has bought and needs to wrap ;) Cycled very carefully as included in the pile was that CK cakestand :)
She'd been to see my little brother graduate this week and gave me a copy of the sample picture, just to prove it had happened;
Now he really is my baby brother being 17 years younger than me (between us there are 5 other siblings - all girls). Often when I think of him I think of the rhyme from the Twinkle comics -
He's seldom neat
He's full of fun & joy
He's grumby, friendly, naughty cute
Like any little boy
He's my baby brother
Ok so he towers over me and I know he'd hate to be referred to as cute but he is my baby brother and it was fantastic for my parents to see him graduate. My parents were both very lucky to survive an horrific car crash at the end of the summer and the prospect of seeing J get his degree was something they held onto during their stay in hospital and during their long recovery back to normal.
After I left there, I popped into town and went into our church charity shop - is not easy to go in there as their opening hours vary from day to day. I came out with two lovely items, some handmade christmas hearts;
and a beautiful bone china 'Yuletide' dish by Royal Albert;
Have had a little potter in the garden this afternoon and was pleased to discovered a huge clump of mushrooms/toadstools growing - I always imagine these to be home of the 'little people' and it was great to see a new home appear.
As well as a little people towerblock, there was so many examples of little hamlets of fairy homes springing up;
So there you go - my Saturday so far - completely random and rambling :)
