Hello and a big welcome to the blog.
Hope you're having a super month, not long to go until the run up to the festivities really start to get serious ... sorry to remind you! I've started my shopping and am pleased with how it's going. I'm trying not to worry this year which is my normal deliberation - which is really stupid I know. Every year the kids and grand-kids love their gifts and I end up wondering why I worried so much!
We put up the decorations over the weekend. On Saturday David put the lights over the Hawthorn bush. That's always good to watch (not do) because it usually ends up in a row as it's either being pushed or pulled in the wrong direction and nearly always ended up broken in some place so David has to do a DIY repair to make it look good! It's rather like watching a Laurel and Hardy sketch and if I was watching would be in fits of laughter! This year was different. He'd trimmed the tree to nearly half it's size and with the help of our SIL it slipped over a dream - if you fancy seeing the finished look pop over here to see my IG post.
Sunday was my turn to put the indoor decorations up. I love doing it, but it takes ages and I usually do it over a few days, kind of a room at a time. I want to decorate the hall this year, but not sure what I will use. I keep adding to the trimmings and always get told off as we have way too many on the tree ... not in my opinion though, lol!
As it's the last Monday of the month, it's the turn of Style Not Age to take over the page and share their interpretations from the prompt …
Spots & Stripes.
I always think of the American flag when I hear spots and stripes mentioned, so it was an easy choice, with what I had on offer, to go down the route of red, white and blue like the flag. As many of you know the American flag represents the 13 British Colonies and 50 American states. As a bit of trivia for you. My New Years Resolution last year was to learn the 50 American states. I hate to admit to failing miserably with this one as I haven't learnt any! Maybe I will try again for my next New Years Resolution - well I can only try eh!
