It’s a small world
Sunday before Christmas and tomorrow is the winter solstice which occurs in December. In the northern hemisphere this is the date that marks the 24-hour period with the fewest daylight hours of the year. That is why it is known as the shortest day of the year, or the longest night of the year.
I do not know what to say about the news that was given to us on Saturday as some members are now living in tier 4, while others are still in tier 2.
Keep safe everyone.
My first wedding cake had 4 tiers and that didn’t work!
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world – Christchurch Pre-School were a little “shocked” when I presented them with our collection tin containing £186.50 which Julie made up to £200.
This money has been raised by YOU. We started in class with individual donations being given, the sale of Pilates Balls and then our WONDERFUL Liz started sewing again. I then bought more masks from Wendy in Highwoods.
I would like to thank my husband Tony and the rainbow riders who continued to deliver these items by bike (yes bike) the scooters went away and out came their push bikes.
It’s a small world – I have now found out that Liz’s (different Liz) daughter works at Christchurch Pre-School and that’s even more rewarding.
Thank you to everyone involved.
Lula was more interested in Father Christmas!
Did you or didn’t you, do you or don’t you?
Two questions, did you watch MasterChef? we did and loved it. The pressure on completing a task, making it look presentable, tasty, colourful and most importantly edible.
Do you or don’t you? Do you do all the cooking or does your partner? If you live on your own the answer is still the question do you or don’t you? Many single people do not bother to cook proper meals, but that doesn’t mean that others do.
There is nothing better than a takeaway for those time when the mood takes you but if that is on a regular basis you need to re-think.
There is nothing better than a home cooked meal but that may need preparation, planning and certainly at trip to the shops. If you are shopping on line then plan a weeks meals and buy the ingredients. Sausage and mash is not sausage and mash without the sausages.
You may end up with the menu “im a celebrity get me out of here”
The Christmas Card
Why was the Christmas card invented?
In 1843 a man named John Calcott Horsley printed the first Christmas card for Sir Henry Cole, the friend who had given him the idea. Sir Henry Cole, a wealthy British businessman, wanted a card he could proudly send to friends and professional acquaintances to wish them a “Merry Christmas.”
When you are choosing a card what is it that you look for? is it the picture, snow, robins, father christmas , Is it the words, or is it the price?
You can pay very little or a fortune but HOW much will it cost to post? what is the size of your card.
Did you know:
Normal size card/letter up to 100gms in weight = 1st class 76p, second class 65p
Large letter weight up to 100gms in weight = 1st class £1.15 second class 88p
250gms in weight = 1st class £1.64 second class £1.40
This year, the last day for posting a 2nd Class delivery in the UK is Friday 18th December. For first class mail in the UK, it’s Monday 21st December. Be QUICK as you have missed Friday so get them in the post tomorrow but no guarantee they will get there on time:
Thank you for all the cards, flowers and gifts I have received this week. xxxxxx
