Neary the end

Hello Everyone,

Well did I have a special treat last night...sitting here getting ready to colour in some new images, and the phone rings...was my son in law asking if I would like to go round for tea [fish'n'chips] and then going for a drive to see all the pretty lights on houses, as we have competitions here.

I was right chuffed that he would ask me, so thats just what we did...wheres the photo's you ask....come on now, we are talking about me...I left the camera at home..

There was one very special, over the top house, and I might whip back tonight and get some pics....we'll see.

Phew..I've picked from the garden my Christmas lillies, and they're on the cabinet right where I'm typing, and the perfume hits you suddenly, ..

My mother planted these years ago when she lived in this flat.When she died and I moved in, I had a tidy up and split the bulbs, moved things around, and these babies sulked and never flowered for a long time...last year they tried, but were nothing to rave about...but this year the whole 5 spikes did their thing, so I have a very perfumed house for Christmas..

My card today is for a one year old child, but the Mum didnt want it too babyish......

So found this little pet at Raising our kids site.

Close up of image, coloured with pencils, but the red, I used a copic,
papers from stash, and the bow came off the christmas tree,

Thats me for today, 2 more work days...then 4 days off...except I still go to my lady everyday, even Christmas morning...but just a bed make and cuppa, make sure she is ok...then I'm free, to do what ever I want....
