Just leaving the cards and just chilling til Xmas now....I killed poor Santa yesterday due to trying to do too much and falling over on him so that's taught me a

So grateful that I can share something with Little Myz...I can't take her out like her dad can but we do share a love of crafting.

We stuck these together the other day. Can you guess which ones are hers and which mine? :)

Special card for my nan

With even the best intentions only three cards been made this year so thank the powers that be that I had a bundle left from last year.

Nan lost grandad this year and I feel such a huge loss even tho I didn't see him often he texted (yes and he was over 90 so woo)  and phoned and had been a great influence on my I really can't imagine how nan feels :( ...all ihave been able to do is send the odd card chock full of hugs and love down to London.damn this body :(...

So I made a big effort to send a nice big card to say thinking of you this Christmas....big as she has loads of trouble seeing so made it big as I could...if I don't get to see her when she's at mum and dads....if I do I can hug her in person and I'll have the card back thank-you-very-much lol

It was made with a flippin' Santa sheet and some really dodgy ribbon attempt with bits that keep threatening to fall off so I hope they survived the post down there....

If you get a chance to hug your nan or grandad or both this Christmas..or anyone you don't see a lot.. give them an extra hug ...with this life you never know do you?

Better share this before Christmas is gone I guess lol. Easy to make wreath just sticky sticky strips of paper on the back of a paper plate you cut a circle hole in and add embellishments round the hole :) easy peasy enough for a kiddie winkle to do :)


Knorr gravy pots - review

 When I found out a few weeks back that my friend had been chosen to test Knorr Gravy pots there was much a-weepin a-wailin and a-gnashin of teeth... we are big stock and gravy lovers here and we were a little peeved that The Universe didn't know that.. we actually decided to buy some on the strength of my friend's review and they..were....gorgeous.....
It turns out that said Universe had plans for us as this week we received a pack of Knorr Gravy pots to test..when they arrived we actually did a gravy dance (think Snoopy Dance but more brown and wet)
However, being a household that plans its meals it looked like we werren't going to be able to have a play with the deliciousness until we had a Sunday roast but.. I just couldn't wait.... if the gravy pots were half as tasty as the stock pots we were in for a taste bud tingly treat...
AHA thought I .. Friday Night is Takeaway Night.. I'm going to make up some gravy.... we can still test it 'roast wise' but I really couldn't wait hehe
I had a look at the instructions... looked very simple to make.. almost too simple... you know how when things are really easy to make they taste meh....? I was very worried but I soldiered on ;)
Ok Myz... stick the stock pot in a pan with 280ml of warm water... check..
Have a mixy mix around with a whisk while it warms up.. check..
Then we were to boil for 1 minute stirring it and it said then it would be ready...
To be honest I make my own gravy... and it takes blimmin ages.... as it was boiling it looked just like My Real Gravy.. and it smelled diiiiiviineeeee...
Ok sorry I apologise for the after shot of greasy fish and chips but this is what I used it on :)
It tasted absolutely gorgeous.. just like when I make real gravy with juices and simmer for goodness-knows-how-long! ... it was very quick and easy to make and got a thumbs up from the whole family.. man, woman, teen and 7 year old...
..and also the dog who was driven mad by the smells so I put in some water with the teeny amount of gravy left, had a mix, and she had it on her dry dinner food.. and nommed it up completely :)
If you like gravy...*real* gravy.. then try these out....

Superstar! Injecting the fun!

Got to keep it going. Got to work out ways to have fun in here or I'm going to go crazy. When (not if and I am bloody going to get there soon or explode!) I can take walks outside even small ones It's great. Could just about manage a little bit of field but I wouldn't be able to do any housework at all so...

..and It's little myz' Christmas performances tonight and yesterday and I can't go.I racked my.brains but I couldn't think.of a way.wish they did DVDs still :( ..stupid paedos :( ... Little myz is a jockey which apparently is one of the seven dwarves.....err ok :)...

..anyway... Mr Myz works at EE which is was used to be Orange innit...and he got lots of promotional EE stuff in October I think it was...

Decided to lean on wall and take photos of me in the t-shirt today for my fun. Took three goes and most of the photos blurred but I think you get the idea....

What have you done to inject some fun into the day? :)
