My Christmas 2014

IMG-20141228-00189Candice: The Christmas break isn’t over yet but we’ve moved from the pre-christmas to post Christmas bit very quickly, as you always do.

Its been a different one this year with the addition of an extra person in the family, and there is Erin too!  Seriously, Christmas will now be more about her than us, but that’s not a bad thing as it is our chance to go and be big kids again.

It was also the time for Facebook to do one of its clever marketing ploys and get everyone to drown their wall with ‘Their year’. Now that’s lovely and all, but I looked at my version and didn’t post it because it just didn’t represent what I wanted, and also my year didn’t really start until the 4th Jan.  I’ll be doing a revised version then.  But it did make me think about representing things as images and I had all these plans to do that as my post today, but as it always the way I didn’t have time.  So my representation is this.

Food and books.  Both of those have been a big feature in the last week, let alone the last year.  I have actually got to the point this morning, after three Quality Street for breakfast, that it is time for a chocolate break and its not even the new year yet! Even my other half is suffering with indigestion and he can eat anything.

And so books, I’ve been working my way through one this break, and my little one has been bought a few to help get her on the reading path.  Phil has been great on that front, though he has tried to throw in a train influence here or there.  But there is one she won’t be reading until she is older – both the parody shown her and the real one!

Fifty Sheds has kept the whole family amused this christmas, and I’ve even been using my creative head to come up with my own versions. I was doing some painting yesterday, working round some areas that had been missed due to poor lighting in the house and I had some inspiration.  So here is my Fifty sheds thought:

She surveyed the room and then looked him in the eye.  “I think its time for you to touch me up.” He gulped and said, “I’d best go get my paint brushes.”

  1. “he has tried to throw in a train influence here or there” – You buy someones daughter a classic book for her young shelves, in this case “Three Railway Engines – Rev W Awdry” and that’s the thanks you get…

    Facebook’s year thing is pretty depressing and definitely not worth posting. I looked at one and thought how awful so am not going to look at any more. Hope 2015 is good to you – and that I might get to meet Erin before she is a teenager! Let me know when you come to SonA. Geoff

    • The Facebook thing shows just how difficult it is for an automated system to produce a useable newspaper, something editors around the world will be very happy about. Mine brought up a friends road roller returning to it’s home because that was the most commented on post. For me though, the headline would be a trip to Australia but I didn’t post that much on this.
