Sunday, 8 December 2013


Where has the week gone?   It's Sunday afternoon and I will be back at work tomorrow before I know it.    I have been busy doing lots of little bits but thats time consuming, so I haven't had time to get something done for my blog, so instead I am showing these two out for a walk along the drive at work, girls love seeing them and it does make it feel more like Christmas.

Don't know what two they are but every day the team  get walked, I have got to say a couple of years ago when we had snow at this time seeing them was much more Christmasy.
The reindeer live at the animal park across the road from work, and next weekend they put on a ?Nativity Play on the Friday,  Saturday and Sunday all outside and with real animals, even baby Jesus is a proper baby - thankfully it's well wrapped up and cozy but it's a wonderful atmosphere and all for Charity. 
The Reindeer will be busy out and about with members of the Round Table going round the local area collecting for another charity.

I hope you are all well and not getting stressed about getting things done for Christmas, it's not worth it, relax and make the most of the time with your family and friends as you just do t know what's round the corner.     Thank you again for all your lovely words do encouragement .

  7. Hi Hazel
    Looks like rain dear. . . Sorry, couldn't resist.

  9. Super photos! I love reindeer! Up until a few years ago, our local 'Santa' used to arrive on a sleigh with reindeer and a few young ones too..they were adorable. These last few years he's arrived with ponies - cute but not quite the same! Carole Z X

How ridiculous is it?? Keep up the card making xx GailT xx

  12. Hasta que uno no sienta la verdadera alegría de Navidad, no existe. Todo lo demás es apariencia - muchos adornos. Porque no son los adornos, no es la nieve. No es el árbol, ni la chimenea. La Navidad es el calor que vuelve al corazón de las personas, la generosidad de compartirla con otros y la esperanza de seguir adelante.
    Con cariño Victoria
