Oh, Flip...

There's been a blip,
I took a trip,
And broke my hip!

I'm all screwed back together now so
I'm (carefully) putting on my positive pants and shouting


I took a cup of kindness and loads of new toys from the NHS
so thank you so much Queen Alexander.

Can you see my cup of kindness in the photo?

Normal service will be resumed soon but in the mean time
I would like to wish all my bloggy chums...


In 2014 I'm looking forward to learning some new
Womble skills, ie making good use of the things that I find

and using my thinking cap a bit more often.

What are you looking forward to?

Excess Wrapping?

Wreath supplied by The Custards...thanks Jenny.

Christmas is coming,
Goose is tired of tat.
Poor old Santa, 
Needs a new hat.

Christmas is coming,
Mistletoe and wine.
Flipping fairy,
Stay on that  pine.

Christmas is coming,
Carol sings a tune.
Pile up the nuts,
New slippers soon.

Christmas commences,
Turkey please melt.
Too much stuffing,
Loosen that belt.

Christmas is swinging,
Steady on the booze.
Party crackers,
Time for a snooze.

Christmas is over,
We got lots of gear.
Excess wrapping?
Use it next year.

Christmas is coughing,
Goose is in bed.
Slipped on land fill,
I think he's d........ noooooooo!

Try again...

Christmas is coughing,
Goose is in bed.
Time for a break,
Let's cruise the Med!

That's better.

Away in a manger...

... no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus tried Chichester instead...

The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay
and we all had a great Christmas Market, hurrah!

Crafty ways makes fun and laughter.

PS: To the lady that bought the stacking Noddy,
please come back for his tummy.

Deerest... it just me...

or can you feel a giraffe?

No, it was just your imagination.

We are all getting rather excited about our
3 day marathon market tomorrow
and some of us are over excited.

but I'm really looking forward to Sunday
with tidings of comfort and joy...

with tidings of comfort and joy.

As soon as I wake up...

every night, every day...

I know it's you I need to take the blues away.

It must be love...



I've got to be near you...

... every night, every day.

I couldn't be happy any other way.

It must be love, love, love...

Thank you Kim, I love my swaps

Only 20 sleeps left...

This was Bognor Regis last night...not certain what tonight will bring.

Nothing more, nothing less...
Love is the best...

then cake ?

then sprouts?

Thank you Little White Sewing Shed for the cutest swap
and thank you Ladybird Diaries for organising it.

It must be love, love, love...

Slow down... move too fast,

you got to make the morning last.

 Just kicking down the cobble stones...

looking for fun and feeling groovy.

I'm peddling like mad on my unicycle with only 2 weeks to market....
and 4 Saturdays until Christmas...

Life, I love you, all is groovy.

Where are the brakes?

Crafty ways make groovy days.

I Like Big Bows

I like big bows,
They neatly pose
With lovely wings
On crafty things.

I like the way
They stop the fray
With jolly ends
And pretty bends.

Do you like bows?
I don't suppose
You'd like to wear
One in your hair?

I have some spare
So would you dare?
They might all stare
But I don't care.

I like big bows,
In pairs or rows,
I like them loads,
I hope it shows.

She likes bows too...

and buttons...but that's another story.

Crafty ways make me smile.
