Belated Wishes

Just a little note to wish you all the best for the Festive Season!
I didn't mean to be so late in posting this, but hey-ho, I'm thinking of you all!
Do follow the link to Sian's Charity Raffle, on the right. She is going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, next year, to raise money for the Alzheimer's charity. I've seen the effects of this horrible disease first-hand, with my father, so I really do know what it can do. It is such a tremendous thing she is going to achieve, so please do support her. Many thanks.

Canine Christmas Treats

I just lurve this TV ad.
How cute is that doggy? I mean, if your owners forgot to get you a Christmas gift, wouldn't you want to get your own back?
He he he!
And having just read that Joy has a new puppy, called Zoe, I am dedicating this post to her, Zoe and her other doggy, Bernard. (And yes, I want pictures, please!).

Deep and Crisp and Even

Frosted trees

The big, 'green' tree, at the back of our garden, that I've posted pictures of before.

View out of my kitchen door.

I don't believe that have ever seen trees frosted like they were on Tuesday morning. I'm sure if I had I would remember them, it is so pretty and delicate. Real picture postcard stuff.

I went to Brum about 10 days ago to see my massage therapist, Dr Death, as one of his clients calls him. I have really deep muscle massage, which over time has help make my back and hip much more livable with. Sometimes it is really painful, hence the name!, but OMG does it work!
I had a brilliant few hours there and travelled there and back on my own, which I was really proud of. Then, the last 10 days have been a bit of a wash-out and I haven't got out of the house. Friday, Mr B wasn't in until late in the day -for a change- and helped coerce me out of the house for a coffee. Which I did...on the train up to Brum!

We realised there were only a handful of performances of Cinderella left in this season, so he got me a ticket and I, a bit shakily, got to see Momoko dance the title role. She was truly wonderful. The First Act was a bit slow, but the Second is really good, and the final section in the Third Act, when the stage is clear of scenery, but has wonderful lighting effects, was truly 'fairytale princess'. I know it's going out on tour to Salford and Plymouth in January, but it also going to be on telly on Christmas Day, so if you fancy a bit of escapism, I can thoroughly recommend it!
Here's hoping I get my mojo back soon. So much to do, so little time, as they say!
Have a great week!
