Award, Mags & Going Away ....

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

This lovely award was given to me from Toni, and I am so delighted to be given it from someone so very special xxx

I will pass it on when I get back from my Christmas holiday.

Talking of holidays .... We are all off to the South of France to spend Christmas with my twin brother and his fiancee. It will be the first time in 7 years, that we have all been together as a family for Christmas, and I am soooo looking forward to going. I love the South of France .. its such a beautiful area of the Country,partcularly where Colin and Del live. They live in a traditional French village with a really cute village square which has a pond and the obligatory boulles square, surrounded by tiny little shops. We will be attending the Christmas Eve Mass procession through the village and up to the church with the locals who will all be bearing lit candles - it really is a stunning event. While there we will be ski-ing and ice skating, and maybe a bit of snowboarding *insert shocked smiley* so please think of me and hope that nothing untoward gets broken !!!

Oh, just a quick mention that I was extremely privileged to have two layouts published in Scrapbook Inspirations this month - my first ever - yay !!! I'll scan a photo of the pages when I get back !

I'd just like to wish everyone who comes to visit this blog, a very merry, happy christmas whatever you are doing, and whatever your 'faith' is or isn't. xxxxxxxxxx
