New Years cruise 2014

Because it's been so long since I posted anything (except for last weeks post), I was looking at the last couple of posts I did waaaay back in December 2014.  I was doing a Christmas countdown and posting a picture of a Christmas decoration from my travels and the last one I posted was from the cruise mum and I went on in September/October 2014.

Well, I mention in that post that I should add some photos of that cruise - what I didn't mention was I was about to head off on another New Years cruise with one of my previous travel buddies.

Another birth sampler I've created

It has been absolutely yonks since I did a blog post, to the extent that I had to work out my password and everything all over again.  I'm going to blame work for keeping me most occupied for the majority of time, and the last couple of weeks have been kept busy with a beautiful new little person.

One of my friends recently had her first baby too, and you know how much I love doing birth samplers?  Well, similar to these old samplers (sheep, dragon, tatty teddy) I decided to get my designing skills back out and used an adorable little toy as my inspiration.

Merry Christmas 2014

Christmas Day is here!!!

For this special day, I wanted to leave you with a picture I took of a scene that was created by a very clever five year old... Amy.  She worked very hard to set up her mum and aunty's old Barbie dolls complete with the dolls house furniture so that there would be a magical setting underneath the Christmas tree.

In my opinion, she was totally and utterly successful.

Merry Christmas all!

12 - Cruise to Fiji

Decoration 12 - my cruise to Fiji

This was my most recent holiday - Sept/Oct 2014.  After a very busy and quite stressful year this was my treat to myself.  I should do a post about this holiday and put up some pics because it was a great time.

It was only mum and I and lots of rest and no pressure to do anything, but we met lots of great people, and already by chance knew some people from a previous holiday - honestly, Australia is just one big community of friends!!!

Only one sleep to go!

11 - I've always found Harrods quite wonderful

Decoration 11 - Harrods 2013

I apologise for the blurry photo.  I don't know that I could ever go to London without a visit to Harrods.  The last time I went, I had a little adventure to get there, but it was definitely worth it.

If it's not wonderful enough by itself, Harrods goes and has a special Christmas section which I believe is all year round (although I have only ever been in Sept/Oct funny enough). I'm so pleased that I have this decoration along with other Harrods decorations I have from previous years.

Two sleeps to go!!
