Went to pick up my Snowflake Stampede shirt; seemed strange passing through The Parade of Lights in broad daylight.

Yummy Route 11 chips in Emblemax bags. Wouldn't mind some of these myself!

So Uno's has now created a new dish in honor of the trashy novel, which incidentally I'm currently reading in order to give an honest opinion, which is 'don't bother with it'.
I had a burger.

Raising another external wall at the house build. John stands and watches, saying, "Come on ladies, put your backs into it!"
No, he didn't really!

Our doctors office now uses PA's which initially I wasn't happy about, but she turned out to be excellent. Sad sign of the times now when it seems doctors seem to be in short supply.

Jose brought us munchies from New Mexico. The chocolate was nice but couldn't make my mind up about the bird seed bar.

Didn't like my total bill at Target. One of my cards rang up as a Gateway laptop, and Target don't even stock them! And Gateway? Yuck! Lost some street cred with that on my bill.

I made a hat and scarf for one of the reindeers I rescued from next door. They were due to go in the skip but Boss Man wants this bone for his front yard.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Clearing one of our areas ready to fit a 25ft x 30ft adult moon bounce for our Christmas party next week. Woo hoo!

Popped into PetSmart to get provisions and saw these cute little critters who were happy to strike a pose.

Monday, November 26, 2012

I 'borrowed' these from Plantworks next door and sent Boss Man a message saying I'd got some nice Christmas decorations for the outside of the shop. He'll do his nut, ha, ha!

Last rays of the sun fall on me as I sit in front of the fire.

Qualified guys lay our upstairs flooring on the WomenBuild house. They glue it in place and then we hammered the nails in.

At the brand new cinema in Fairfax with friends to see Lincoln. Superb acting.

A wonderfully lazy and relaxed Thanksgiving sharing turkey and stuffing with the cats, then a large glass of red while putting up the Christmas decorations.

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Great turkey cake in our local store, waiting to grace someone's Thanksgiving table.

Met Nancy for a couple of superb glasses of red wine at the new winery in Centreville, had a blast. Bit too commercialized but a good meeting point for us Brits. Good to see Jamie again too.
