I could rename this blog with Calaidh chewed my leather handbag strap but I won’t… I will focus on the positive and take the bag to Timpsons to have it stitched. Just like my Grandad would have done when he had his shoe shop.
We were very lucky in the village this year when Holly who owns the pub decided to try and get a big Christmas tree die outside the memorial hall. She started asking some questions and next thing you know the Gateside Plant Centre had donated a 10ft tree and some neighbours Guy & Heather donated and fitted the lights. Such a lovely guesture.
Claire and I went shopping within North Ayrshire this morning to pick up some lights for the windows of the hall. We wanted nets of lights but couldn’t get anything like that.
Home for a bite of lunch then Claire, Rachel and I decorated the hall.
It even cheered little old bah humbug me. I felt pretty low this morning but as the days gone on I have focussed on the tasks at hand and my head has been kept busy.
So let’s be clear here. I am not a particularly festive person these days. In fact almost the opposite. This year I might just about manage it. Maybe a teeny weeny little bit festive.
Those who know me will be shocked to know that I actually wrapped presents and wrote some cards today…… it’s November. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ I guess I needed the distraction and it’s working.
Stay safe everyone 🎄🎄🎄
