A Happy New Year and where has the past 3 months gone!

A Happy New Year to all you bloggers.Hope you all had a lovely christmas and that Santa was kind to you all with stash!!!! We had dinner and tea Christmas day at the in-laws which was great as I was working Christmas night 10-7am Boxing morning(I work as a relief carer in a local home for the elderly with Dementia). The past 3 months have whizzed by and I'm sure I've missed most of it, well that's how it seems. Andy my DH has been working in Belfast these past 3 months coming home at weekends, which has meant my twice weekly drive to Stansted Airport, which I can now do with my eyes shut and cruise control on the car!!!!! Then I also work 3 mornings pw at a sheltered housing complex, private carer 3 mornings and 3 tea times pw for a 90yr lady, also my relief night shifts miexd with taxi service on tap to 3 teenagers oh and can see why I've lost 3 months and haven't blogged for 2 months. Andy has now finished in Belfast and is now offically unemployed and reckons he's going to be a house husband....yer right over my dead body!!!!He can have a couple of months off getting those jobs done around the house that I can't do then it'll be time to job hunt.
DS 1 Aaron is 18 tomorrow, it doesn't seem possible, I remember labour like it was yesterday.He's not having a party as we are paynig for him to go to New York in April with college.
The Bramford Christmas crop on 13th December was again well supported with over 30 scrappers attending. I am so pleased this crop has taken off and our ladies keep coming back month after month(so thank you to you all) I was alittle worried when Ang said go on start up a crop.....the rest is history. We have such a lovely bunch of people who make the crop such a huge success, with a warm friendly atmosphere.
Ang and Diane(Crafts and Candlelight) kindly bring along their shops each month. Diane's shop next to Lumberjacks on Bramford Rd has had a big makeover during the christmas break, with new shelving and a big move round it's well worth a visit(open Tues-Sat).
Well DS 2 is now pestering to use the computer, so I will say goodbye for now...............Janina xx
