The Yearly "The Santa Claus" Movie Marathon Has Began

Again it is near Christmas so that means lots of Christmas songs on the radio and tv, and movies to watch.  Miss 18 informed me she was starting her "The Santa Claus" movie marathon on Tuesday, but she ran out of time, so last night was the night.  She told me these movies were her favorite movies too.  We have seen the first and tonight the second. I do like Tim Allen in these movies.  He is so good.

 At the moment I can not get enough of Band Aid 30 " Do They Know Its Christmas".  I loved the original as a 11 year old and ho hummed the ones after that, but the newly released one I love.

And I can never get enough of Wham's "Last Christmas"

So what are your favorite Christmas songs?

Christmas Is Not Far Away

Christmas is not far away and when visiting a local Mitre 10 hardware store during the the week I saw that they had some adorable Christmas ornaments out and I fell in love with these mice.  Well I fell in love with a lot more than the mice, but budget constraints only let me get these mice ...... for now.

Its Been A While

Well its been a while since my last post.  Things have been hectic as I have moved house, town, farm.  Hubby got a new job on a much larger farm at Kuratau, Turangi and I have just got a new Registered Nurse job at Taupo Hospital which I start in three weeks time.
We do have a magnificent view of the mountains ....when it is fine ....... and there has not been much off that in the last 2 1/2 weeks.

I have not done much stitching in that time.  Just a few hexis and some Christmas swap stitching which is a secret for now. 

 I also had a go at making a decoration and changed the finish ever so slightly in incorporate my lace.
