Firstly I would like to thank everyone for their well wishes and lovely messages this week. I have been very under the weather but feeling more like myself I am pleased to report. It is very very cold at the moment and that is very much my battle right now as I can not keep warm. However this weekend is my long weekend in London.
We are meeting friends from America there and some really good friends from here will be there as well and we are all out for a meal on the Friday Night in town. The Saturday night well that is the ballet and it is The Nutcracker my all time favourite. Gorgeous dresses will be worn and the men will be in DJ's ... Little thing though I said to a really close friend of mine that did she think I could get away with wearing my PJ's to the Ballet as I am the most cosiest and warmest in them right now .... her reply ' well of course they are considered evening wear' It made me really laugh! I am excited about going it is just the thought of it all as I am not firing on all cylinders I am afraid. Still it might be what I need to jump start me back in to full speed ahead mode.
we can all go together. House sitter in place and well I am raring to go. No work will be done today I just know it. It was going to be a tidy the stitchery room day today but I think a 'potter about' is more in order.
I am lucky enough that dear friends are flying in from America to help celebrate my Birthday and also it is Cyndi's Birthday that weekend so we are both Birthday girls ... there was talk of tiara;s being brought over .... There are going to be lots of laughs this weekend and I must say I am looking forward to the Ballet. I love the story of The Nutcracker and it brings back the child in me. When the lights go down and the curtains rise I know I will immerse myself in the wonder. The trick is to dress warmly but still look elegant for me right now. I am taking a cosy shawl with me and that should do the trick.
There is also now talk of Winter wonderland in London as well so warm again and my bubble hat and ugg boots are the key. I believe this is just what I need to force me going with Christmas upon us as well I am very behind in my prep. Not to worry it will all come together.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and wrap up warm I will be back on Tuesday, once again you lovely people THANK YOU for all your kindness.
Happy Stitching! XX
