Day off to get trimmings up and out for a meal with cousin
got the trimmings up but cousin couldn't make a meal as she had to get her decorations up too today .
Never mind eh - supposed to be meeting her next thursday now - we'll see.
Usually have the tree all one colour - but this year used all the baubles etc from many years - some from my moms christmas tree (they made me cry) and all the ones I bought for the kids as the years went by, always bought them each a new bauble every christmas - pleased with the result as I'm usually not happy with multi colour.
this angel is from when the kids were tiny ! She smells very musty but felt I wanted to pop her on the top of the tree this year.
these 'flowers' are years and years old ! Probably the last time I can use them.
I'm 60 - OMG that kinda snook up and bit me bum really - inside I still feel about 30, just a terrible shock when I look in a mirror! Anyway, I am pretty proud of me self to say that I was a very successful alternative health therapist - mainly practicing reflexology but also qualified in lots of other disciplines, I also taught alternative health classes for 5 years and loved it - I particularly LOVE colour therapy and Feng Shui. AND I also did a diploma in Interior Design which I wish I had persued as a career. My current love is papercrafting, oh and papercrafting and papercrafting.
Unfortunately I had to return to a regular job in Dec 2008 in administration with NHS because of the recession ........ which has now gone on for 8 LONG years ! I can't see me returning to self employment though although I have revived my reflexology business it really is still very much part time - it's nice to receive a regular monthly income albeit doing something that I don't particularly enjoy. Sad isn't it.
