My year :)


Friday at our place:



Last day of school before Christmas, so Susannah and I got up early and went to Timmys before school.  It's really nice doing this now and then :)  


Today was bitterly cold - but it made for good pictures.  Laurence took this one:


I spent this morning making some snow globes:


Laurence bought me a Holiday London Fog and a lemon tart:


I took him to The Italian Centre for lunch and to see their bakery....
and then to Southgate to look round the stores:



Laurence got this gorgeous picture of my girly:


Today was Yule, the Winter Solstice, and the shortest day:


We celebrated by having a fire and burning a log....we also have smores to make on the fire...



Samantha called round for a chat - I forgot to take a picture of us by the Christmas Tree which I normally do every year :(  

This could be to blame:


Susannah sat by the fire all evening and Rosie sat on the sofa watching me to make sure I don't go anywhere :


The last couple of days....

Susannah and I went to see Twilight - Breaking Dawn part 2 on Wednesday evening.  Susannah was given a GC for the movies for her volunteer work at the library this Summer - so we used that.  Kind of makes me feel better that we didn't pay much considering how BAD the movie was - even Susannah thought it was awful!


Yesterday it was sooooo horribly quiet here without Sam and Abby - I was very glad that I had plans to go out for the day.  Trish and I headed to Bedrock Supply to see what they had - WOW, I had never been there before but it's AMAZING!!  Have to take Sam there during French class one day!  I got the supplies for Susannah to make her friend a necklace for Christmas.  



I've been busy crafting - making snow globes and little ornaments:



Last night 7 of us met up at Oscars for the weekly pub quiz...it was Christmas themed and fun.  we got 26 out of thirty:





Rosie is making the most of Sam not being here - and is hogging the bed:
