Hi everyone!  I had a fabby day out with my friend on Friday.  Didn't actually buy very much but it was great to catch up.  Saturday I was meeting up with 3 friends whom I've known for 40+ years.  We decided to have our Christmas get-together earlyish this year in case we had the same bad weather as we experienced last year.  Presents and cards have been duly swapped ... how organised are we!  Sunday was a family day as it was our son's birthday so we all met up for lunch and had great fun.  Today I'm off to see my aunt as she wants me to take her to M&S for some Christmas shopping.  Seems like I'm never at home but it beats working any day.  It's the best job I've ever had!  Hugs x

What a fabulous Christmas Tree! So gorgeous and sparkly! (I met 2 schoolfriends last week - we've also known each other for 40 - cough - years, and it's like we've never been parted! Meeting them is a Christmas high point - so I know just what fun you must have had with your friends lol!)

Thank you for joining in at Dream Valley Challenges!
