Christmas Wishes

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.  Thank you for popping in to see what I have been up to ... not a lot these past few days.  Sorry I have been a very bad Blogger of late, I have been rather busy.  Just like most of you at this time of year.  All this crazy Hustle & Bustle for "one day" good fun and worth it ... I think!!!
We are off to a Wedding today, it`s all go, go go,!!!
I have taken some time out to say a big THANK YOU to all my faithful followers and visitors for their wonderful comments and support throughout the past year.  Without you none of this would be worth doing.
Today I have a quick post of how I wrapped some Chocolate Bars.  I like to have things like this at hand for any last minute gifts I might need.  Also for neighbours that I would not give a gift as such but don`t want to leave them out.
I got the idea from my friend Myra who was given something very similar.  Myra knew this would appeal to me,  yes it did, thank you very much.  
I think you can guess the one on the left is for the Ladies and the other is for the Gents.

That`s really it from me for today and till after the New Year.
Could I ask that you all remember those less fortunate than ourselves.
I have a friend who knows her beloved sister has a very short time left with loved ones.
Others who because of terrible weather, have had their Christmas turned upside down.
Those who have lost loved ones during the year and will find this Christmas very lonley
I am sure you all have someone who needs your thoughts and prayers

Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till I see you all again

  16. Hi Patricia
    Lovely idea for stocking fillers.
    There are a lot of folk that are having troubled times and it often puts our own problems in perspective.
    Thinking of dear Jenny too.
    Enjoy your time with the family and in the making of some new memories.

    I just knew this would appeal to you and what you have made is lovely! You are so right about stopping to think of others - it's good to do that especially when they know we care.
    Thanks for your lovely blog!
    Love Myra xxx

  24. Hi Patricia

    I hope you had a good Christmas and wish you all the best for 2016.

    Just been on Hazel's blog and read that you have been having flood problems. I hope you, your family and all your possessions are OK.

    Trying hard to catch up this end. Our week away in London for Christmas has made for a very busy time wedding wise on our return .. .. but it was worth it! We had a great time.

    Take care.

    Love Jules xx
