It's no good, I can't stay away any longer! I miss you all!

Hi Everyone!
I'm having withdrawal symptoms.I've tried, it's no good. I have to get back to you all now.........

Well how are you all? Christmas is over I do hope everyone has had a really nice peaceful restful time over Christmas. Now we all look forward to a brand New Year. Pleased to say our snow has gone the garden is back to normal. I can see green grass instead of white snow out there. More is forecast though, so I just hope we don't have a lot. The weather has really been getting me down I do sympathise with my friends in the USA who have had it bad. I just don't know how you cope!

Well where does one start now? I'm sure it will come back to me.

It was nice to see my Daughter Twin 2 who came to see us on Christmas Day. We had an enjoyable time playing on the Wi. Aren't they just the best games? I have now learnt how to play the sword game, tenpin bowling, a bit of canoeing. Yes, we are now enjoying some physical activity in the Lounge. Daughter Twin 1 has yet to play, she has been burning the midnight oil out partying getting in all hours, having such a wicked time. Well that's what Christmas is all about enjoying yourselves.

My Mom loved her Ameythst stone I mentioned we bought her. It was nice to visit her when we could.

Mr Twin was slightly in trouble Christmas morning he forgot my card. But he made up for it Boxing Day went out and bought one for me, which had a beautiful red rose on the front. So that made up for it. I do love my red roses on cards.

I was surprised to see my friend Elizabeth had posted over Christmas and was having a fantastic vintage card giveaway, 'fingers crossed!'. We was all having a chat over there about Husbands buying their wives Christmas gifts. Somehow or other they always seem to get it wrong.
What fun we had chatting!

Then dear Lucy had managed to find time to post about all the snow she had in her part of the country. Her photos were beautiful. I am always amazed when she finds time to post with two small children and one on the way!!

Then me well I haven't been posting but I have been Crocheting and flicking through some lovely Crocheting magazines I managed to get from W.H.Smiths. 'Crocheting Today' which I was really surprised to get hold of in the UK and the other one 'Inside Crochet'. I also treated myself to two Crocheting books just before Christmas.

I've tried to pop over to blogs in my spare moments and leave a few notes in places. I think everyone is starting to get back to it now. I've really enjoyed visiting your blogs, lovely to see what you've all been up to. I'm sorry I haven't time to post photos, but I'll make up for it in the coming days. Now I have to pop out and do a few errands.

I've been really pleased to read that you've all had an enjoyable Christmas, now we look forward to the New Year.

I shan't be posting properley until the 4th of January as my family are at home. I hope you will all understand. I just wanted to say hello to you all!

Chat soon with you.....Suex


  1. Yipeeeeeeeeee. I'm so glad you didn't stay away until the first of the year. It's so hard, isn't it. You really don't know just how addicted you are until you try to go without.

    Sounds like you, the hubbie and the girls had a wonderfully relaxing Christmas this year. Oh, the stress of having the girls out partying must be hard. I don't know how you parents do it. I think back to when I was that age...well, the hair stands up on the back of my neck just thinking about it.

    What that I hear? Silence... well, at least until they arrive for the bath demo this morning. I'm going to cherish these next 15 minutes and get caught up with everyone.

    So, excited that you found time to get out to the yarn shop. Can't wait to see what you are going to be up to next.

  4. It sounds as though you have had a lovely Christmas. Our snow has gone too. I took lots of amazing photos of it on December 23rd and now, less than a week later it's totally gone :(. I do love it!! Wishing you a happy and peaceful New Year. Ros

  5. Hi Sue,
    Yes I've been feeling quite bereft too without my regular bloggy fix. Amazing how quickly you get used to all this communication isn't it ?
    Do you have plans for New Year? I know that we would be happy to stay home, perhaps BBQ and have a quiet night but we always feel obliged to stay up late and have friends over or go to their place.
    I like the lazy brunch on New Year's Day that has become tradition with good friends and neighbours from our old house ( we moved from acreage 4 years ago after 17 years there). It is a nice relaxed day - lots of laughter and nibbly food - as if we need any more food !!
    It's so hot here - still showery but oh so humid too. It saps your strength and you just don't want to do anything but this morning hubby and I have been gardening - the heat and rain have made everything bolt away so we've been cutting back and pulling weeds that grow as you watch them in this weather.

    Not a pleasant activity but one that needed to be done. Hubby has taken a break to go get a new spark plug for the mower or something and I am sitting by the window in a pleasant breeze doing the rounds of the blogs thankful that people are beginning to emerge again.

  6. Good to see you back,Sue.
    Christmas here was nice also. I gave my husband a wish list and so I got some nice knitting books and some lovely yarn to knit a collar scarf :-).
    On Sunday I finished the lacy scarf you kindly sent me the kit for.
    I have been back to work since yesterday. But it will be a short week (3 working days).
    Have a nice day
