Gifts at Christmas Time





This will be a very quick post today.  I really want to wish everyone a very happy Christmas with plenty of laughter, good health, and happiness, and especially time to spend with those you love.  This can often be a very sad time for people, remembering those they've lost, but for many it is a time to re-unite with their families, and spend time together.  I am grateful for the support and friendship I have received from so many wonderful readers.  These friendships would never have been possible but for this wonderful world of technology.  I am including one photograph, a small gift I've just completed.  This little pink cardigan has been made for a baby I will never see.  I am sending this to a friend in the US, a gift for her niece whose baby girl is due in January.  Why...........well, I don't know, simply because small things count, and the friendship and support I receive from my friend means a lot to me.  I receive that same support and friendship from so many.  What a pity more people in the world could not take a lesson from we ordinary people, plodding away, making friendships and sharing our passion.

There isn't much else to say today, except to again give my good wishes to all my friends, near and far.  Take care, have fun, stay warm/cool/safe, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.  The comments I receive mean so much to me, and this has helped me continue blogging for so long.  


HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY FRIENDS

My dear friend Linda,firstly,the cardi is beautiful,lucky little baby..
Secondly,yes it is amazing how friendships are forged...remember how ours was...through a bit of cyberstrife..but because we and our group of friends ,we have survived some unpleasantness and are so strong all these years down the line...here's to another year of such great 'cyber' friendship,which one day will be a face to face,hello and hug kind of thing!!
