How was your Christmas? Seems ages ago already, doesn't it? We had a lovely time, just the four of us for the actual day, then over to Cardiff to see Brian's family on Boxing Day. Then two days moving furniture - swapping the spare room and Brian's office. It was a lot of work (and a visit to the chiropractor for me!), but very worthwhile.
Mum and my bro and his wife came down on the Tuesday and then Mum stayed until yesterday. It was lovely to have her here, as always... especially as she's a dab hand with the beading!
Our New Year's Eve party was fun with loads of family and friends to help us celebrate.
The kids only went back to school/college for two days and then had two days off for the snow... and then back to school again today. More snow is forecast for Sunday/Monday, so there may be more snow days to come.
This week I've been catching up with the accounts... boring! So no new jewellery. Next week, I shall be getting my nose back to the grindstone and so I'll hopefully have loads to show you.
The BIG news, from just before Christmas, is that Tom has got a place at Trinity College, Oxford to study medicine. There aren't words to describe how proud we are of him. Of course, he still has to get the grades, but I know he can do it.
Hope you're surviving OK with the weather, wherever you are.
Much love to all,
