a second Christmas thought...

very cold and blustery today, husband of patience is not at work on  a Wednesday this year so he's out there in the stormy weather...happy as Larry...wrapped up and tidying and sorting his world...we bought marker pegs today for him to do some path laying...he is easily pleased!

I love to see him outside enjoying all that he does...fencing, making sheds, moving things, digging... he and our daughter harvested willow at the weekend...it is all very real and grounding, an antidote to work and school.

So I am indoors trying to keep warm...no making today, studio work is on hold and I am indulging simple homely pleasures of sorting and tidying our possessions...and then we will do some more decorating...maybe or maybe not. This is a no pressure Christmas...

Your Chistmas preparations look calm and simple, just how I like it! I went into town at luchtime yesterday that was a mistake, it was so busy!
Hope you have a great Christmas.

I know, it's trying to keep it gentle and enjoyable! We've been wrapping presents tonight and listening to Christmassy music while the wind blows a gale outside! Have a lovely Chrismas too! Emmax
