Vintage Confession

Standard

I have always been a chocoholic- until now that is. When my children were young I traditionally bought each of them a Selection Box for Christmas. One particular selection box was in the shape of a Christmas stocking covered with nylon netting.

Now for the confession, and not a lot of people know this! One Christmas I carefully un picked the end of the stocking and slid out the Mars bar. I, of course, ate it! This meant that I could buy a new bar of chocolate and slide it into place. I fastened down the end of the stocking and happily gave it to the intended recipient.

I am no longer a Chocaholic. In fact chocolate has not passed my lips for ten months. My halo is chocking me!

Whose the Granny in this relationship?

Standard

I’m currently child minding Gorgeous Granddaughter but I’m not very sure whose looking after who! She’s a competent teenager and just needs a responsible adult in the house! Mind you, how did I get the title “competent adult”?

Because I’m here for more than a week I’ve come fully equipped with multiple crafts including my sewing machine. Today I’ve been trying to improve my beading skills. The first challenge of the day was getting the lid off the glue, which I managed with the help of boiling water and brute force. The second challenge of the day will be cooking dinner in a strange kitchen!

I’ll show you the end result when complete.
