getting festive



Its miserable...dreich...outside..we've been inside, writing cards..today's job was stock up on  food supplies and post cards..

We went by bus to Ayr, saving fuel and driving stress!

A simple lunch out , then hunting for The Right...Postable Presents!!

The quote comes to mind,"genius is one percent inspiration, ninetynine percent desperation"

Back home to more card writing..staying connected to friends and family in a traditional way as well as on fb and email!  Remembering just another...and just another...and then there are half a dozen December and January birthdays!!

We're really missing going to New Zealand ...our creaky bits are hurting and my hands are giving me concern. I'm exercising and stretching them every day,but the fear is that I'll get my workshop back running and not be able to work in clay...

some things work...

and others don't...but I'll have to work on this one as I like the image!


How to get frustrating print session out of the system?  Carry on with what you know should work!


Now where are those greetings cards and decorations waiting to be made ?
It is still too cold to go gallivanting outside!

still icy...



Views of Drongan from the bus.

No extra snow last night...just -9 C....today's trip to Ayr was on the bus..avoiding silly driving and parking.
We went to Mauchline as well, and it was lovely and warm on the bus!!

Yesterday's walk, Hannahston Nature Reserve















Now a nature reserve and walks for Drongan villagers..previously a group of coal mines.

Icy

We're staying put...safer that way!!

There is always plenty to do here, tidying, making, going for a (careful!) walk!

We haven't had too much snow,unlike  many others,but it is getting a lot colder.
