How cute is this, George under the Christmas tree, with his new best friend Buster, given to him by a staff member, the nicest man ever in John Lewis, Southampton, brought a rare smile to me.
I am really disappointed with my Amaryllis bulbs this year, the Lidi bulb has only leaves, normally the flower pops up first, my garden center one has no signs of growth either. The bulb from last year has huge leaves and no bud. The seeds grown from previous years, have all been nibbled by mice in the greenhouse. I'm waiting until my local florist has them in stock part growing, I will have their blooms this year.
On Monday I got up early and drove my friend and neighbour to our local hospital for a check up, she recently had an eye operation, she would have needed to take a bus in their busy time for 30 minutes to get there, it's just a 10 minute drive from our home, she is not allowed to drive yet. She got me this lovely thank you plant, mine has finished flowering so lovely to have a 2nd plant.
I added sage green braid around my cushion, I had intended to purchase gold braid, but decided the green would look better.
I am struggling with crafting, I have managed to finish the 1st sleeve for Will's jacket, the body is the correct length , I need to do armhole shaping and the top sections, I have pulled out a WIP cross stitch to finish.
Another great book, I read this super quick, Sharon Bolton is another great author I love, really good story line and brilliant ending. This is my 74th book read this year. I am now waiting for the next set of books from library.
Shops are open and the village is busy, we purchased cards from our independent shop, we also have a big chain cheap shop, but I do love nice cards, not cheap, but most of them are for our grandsons, so I don't mind paying extra.
