Hello, My name is Julie, married to Alex. We have three grown-up sons who each have lovely partners. Michael and wife Elizabeth, Robert and partner Anneka and Peter and wife Steph and their lovely children, our grand-daughter Caitlin and grand-son Liam
Not only a post here I have done a post here too........
Clever husband went on one of those forums, and a kind person helped us out with one specific problem, and after we 'liked' and thanked him a few days later he emailed again giving us a few more tips and guess what we have a computer now that looks very much like XP but is actually Windows 8.1. I'm happy!
Well I was till one very chilly morning at the beginning of the week I found my new 100% wool gloves had been attacked by a moth! The way they were put away, the moth nibbled through most of the fingers.
Does anyone have a natural remedy for keeping moths at bay?
Then I went to Tesco this morning to replace the brandy I had finished after about four years and to be ready for next years Christmas cake. Everyday Value brandy just for cooking with, not only was quite expensive but, it now comes in a plastic bottle!!
Don't forget its the start of Advent tomorrow, not to late to join in.....
Thank you to those who have signed up for the Advent Calendar 2013. I have listed you all on the sidebar below the picture of Father Christmas (please check your link works). If you would like to copy and paste this picture to your blog that is fine, also if you would like to join in but you haven't yet that is fine too. I will leave this open to anyone, just let me know you would like to join in.
1) You don't have to follow this blog if you would like to join in but would be rather nice if you were.....
2) Put a photo of something christmassy on your blog everyday from 1st to 24th December.
This can be from the computer, You Tube, or your own personal pictures.
3) Have fun choosing pictures and go and see what others have put on.
This is my first post from the new computer. I got frustrated so I went and made a cup of tea. Its the saving of the photos that is frustrating me! I just couldn't find this one, it wasn't where I put it. I'll let you know how I get on when it doesn't take me two hours to download photographs!!!!
Still blogging from old computer - but as I'm like a dog with a bone I will get is sussed....... one day, but not today, loads to do, like finishing knitting for DIL, I'll watch a film while I'm doing that this afterrnoon, altering curtains for son and DIL, need floor space for that, so cleaner needs to be put round, and generally flitting from one thing to another this week as the Vintage Fair at Trull, Taunton, Somerset is creeping upon me that is 14th December.
Today is Stir-up-Sunday! I don't make puddings, but I make my Christmas Cake today, the fruit has been soaking for a week in brandy so plump juicy fruit to add to the mixture.
As from Tuesday 26th November it will be exactly four weeks to the big day, hasten to add Tuesday is our middle son's 32nd birthday, then for four months till 26th March next year we have two son's of the same age!
Next Sunday is 1st December which means we start opening doors on the advent calendar! Do any of you remember Advent calenders without chocolate? I used to love opening each door to see what the little picture that was hidden behind. Chocolate Advent calenders were quite expensive in the sixties, that is if they even existed then!
Would anybody like to join Josie and I in posting a christmassy picture everyday from 1st December to 24th December on their blog as if it were an Advent calender. It could be a wintry scene, it could be just a picture of a Christmas card, anything leading up to 24th December. There are lots of Christmas pictures online, or it could be something from YouTube, or just a Christmas picture of your own Go to my posts from last year see what I did............ Josie's are here, just follow the days through.......
It would be lovely if lots of people can join in........... Just leave a comment and I will list you all next week who are joining in.
