Sparkle & Then a Bang

We went to visit Santa at a different haunt of his this year. Since the Bun's were 3 and 4 we've been on a steam train journey to visit him. This year we fancied a change, so we went to ride on gallopers, trains, dodgems and then say hello to Santa who was hiding in Walmington on Sea (Dad's Army world if you're wondering).

It was sparkly and perfect.  After we saw Santa, we hopped on board the overnight mail train to write a letter of christmas wishes for him. If you look carefully you might spot the handsome elf down the bottom colouring in pictures.

Letters written and posted. We went for our last ride on the gallopers and then decided the wind was getting a tad too icy to hang around any longer.


I had to work the first two days of the holidays which made everyone very sad as it was also Mr Bun's birthday on Monday.  Today I had lots of great plans. Baking and crafting with my girls, aswell as finishing the presents I've half sewn up. Instead the loud bang that I heard in the night took over the day. When we got up we found a burst pipe with five inches of water. Luckily it was in the garage which is just off the kitchen, with a step down, so the water couldn't come through. Looks like a hell of a lot of damage in there though as we store everything in there. I had to practically beg a plumber to come out for an extortionate amount of money. So roll on tommorow. Lets finally get back to this christmassy stuff.

We have a few deliveries to make in the morning, including this custom order of Round and Round Cushions. After that I think the lure of trying to make coconut ice for the first time and then scoffing the lot appeals hugely.

I might get back to say so, but I might not, so just in case I don't HAvE a MeRRy MerRy cHriStMaS especially to all those of you who are kind enough to leave me such lovely comments. I hope to get by and say a proper hello very soon.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
