I had an eventful run up to Christmas. On a trip out to deliver my brothers presents I was in a collision with another car, whilst I ended up with minor bruises my poor car alas is no more.
I will always be so grateful to the kind people who helped me by taking me , a stranger ,back to there house , looking after me , letting me use there computer and phone and giving me coffee whilst I waited for my brother to come and pick me up.
The whole incident was quite an upset and was made so much less traumatic by these wonderful people.
So, no car, and a ton of presents to get to London. I travelled by taxi, train, tube and bus to reach my family with two huge suitcases and two bags.
It was so worth it, I had the best Christmas, lots of wonderful food, wine and the pleasure of seeing the absolute delight on the face of my 3 year grand daughter when she saw that Father Christmas had been and left lots of presents under the tree.
I'm home now, I pick up my new car on Tuesday and will be delighted to be out and about again.
Being house bound has given me chance to do some early spring cleaning to start the New Year.
I'm updating my Etsy shop with a couple of books.
I'm starting on some new projects for 2012, it's going to be a busy year with lots of teaching and some great trips planned. can't wait!!!!
A Very Happy New Year to you all.
