Merry Christmas 2011

We have had a lovely Christmas snug & warm from the damp, wet days outside !
The family all arrived safely from North Wales & Berkshire loaded with gifts & drinks !
We had a very nice meal at Sosban on North Dock in Llanelli - amazing the restoration they have accomplished there !
On Christmas Morning, we gathered for a happy hour of present opening, then ate a full Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings, drank plenty of Cava, chatted & played games & watched Christmas TV.
We followed this with a couple of days of peaceful fuddling about & resting up and enjoying each other's company.

Christmas Miracle 1918

Today I had a story published on the "Scrapgirls" website.
They were asking for true Christmas stories & I just had a compulsion to write the story that my Great Uncle Arthur had told me many years ago about his coming home from the First World War.
I just had an intuitive feeling that they would like the story and if I sent it I might be chosen !
So I wrote my tale & created the required accompanying digital scrapbook layout using their products as was laid out in the rules of the competition.
And today out of the blue when I opened their daily newsletter - there was my story !

I was chuffed that they liked it & chose to publish it - and pleased to think of girls all over the world reading Uncle Arthur's story !

Journal your Christmas 2011

And we're off ... today is the first day of my 4th Journal Your Christmas ! I have my covers underway & love the feeling that girls all over the world are taking part in this scrapping month ! I also like the idea of looking back on each year in years to come & remembering the good (and even the bad) times I have had each December !
