Good morning everyone...
 Our visit to Germany was just fabulous, Liam is such a little character and he is just unbelievable with his languages!!  He really does put us to shame as his English is so good, I can't say very much at all in German!  I am hoping they will all be here for his birthday at the end of March, he's told his mum and dad that's what he wants for his birthday to come to gran and granddads.... bless him!  Candice had a lovely time too! we went to the Christmas markets, the weather was so mild, it was a pleasure to walk around.  Nicole introduced me to hot chocolate and baileys...mmmmm... I don't normally drink, but had about 3 or maybe 4 of these lovelies over the course of the evening!  Needles to say I was a little merry lol!

Can you believe it's Monday aready, so it's time for another Linky party over at 'Make it Monday'  We have a fabulous new sponsor joining us this week, and I'm sure you've guessed who it is already.... yes! it's the lovely Krista from Saturated Canary... her images are so beautiful and if you have not been across to her shop yet then this is the link.

Now who is my pick for this week...... it's the lovely Michelle from Krazee Kraftin' mama

There are two of these gorgeous hangings, they really are beautiful... do pop across to Michelle's blog and take a closer look, and also leave her a little  love too!!

I am sorry that I haven't been around too much over the last month or so,  I'm a little out of sorts at the moment, as my Mum is going to have to have a triple bypass operation as her little heart isn't in very good shape. We still have some more tests to do, but they are thinking around the end of January, early February.
Mum really wants to have this done, as she says she doesn't want to sit around waiting for a heart attack to happen.... so my Mum being my Mum is going ahead with it..

This is me and my Mumsy, she looks so well and I just want her to stay like this forever!!

Sorry about the long post today girls, it's all or nothing with me hey!!... Have a fabulous week.. 
Take care,
Love and Hugs,
