I am now away to see how I shoudl be doing my packing...It has just come in time as I MUST go and do it this morning...Packing for teh two of us is not so easy as usual. When we take a cruise from Southapmton it dosn't matter how much we take etc but flying is a different matter altogether and I want to take justthe one suitcase between us plus our backpacks..wish me luck !!

    Take care if you are out and about it is very cold and icy out there this morning xx

  2. Good Morning Marie.

    Have a wonderful trip Sybil.

    We have had a fun Friday night. Pip's Connor is here and life is riot. Connor has managed to fix my tv which has been sick for months! I intend to enjoy a happy household while I can.


  3. Yes, there is a big difference between flying and cruising I am sure Sybil! Hope to one day find out! I do hope you get all you need to get done today. xxoo

    THanks Suzan. Enjoy the peace and happiness while you can! xxoo

  4. Ooo...lots of good tips today, Marie! And those edible matches/box--VERY CUTE! Your Raggedy Doll sweet--love that bit of rick-rack on her dress... Good luck with making more! Wishing you all a happy weekend there from us here. :o) ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  5. Every Raggedy Ann Doll must have a heart that says I love you. So sweet ! I've done nothing but shovel snow here. It tires me to the point I do nothing else. I need some time to get things done, so I'm hoping we don't get a lot more this winter.

  6. Thanks Tracy, a happy weekend to you too! xoxo

    I am so amazed that you can do it Pam! I could not. I hope you don't get much more snow either. Nothing like getting totally dumped on late! You must really be looking forward to Spring! xoxo

  7. That little doll is YOU.
    Sew cute Marie:)
    Will check out that budding artist's site..
    The long boy burgers sound like a good idea Martha:)
    I am into Season 3 of Last Tango..never knew there would be so many twists.

  8. The Series three just finished here Monique! Definitely a lot of twists and turns. I think the show just goes from strength to strength! xoxo

  9. I have got the packing down Marie,,everything for the two fo us into one suitcase,,and we each have a backpack which I will fillwith odds and ends inclusing my heavy wheelchair battery charger. I take this on board with me as I don't like to b eparted from it in case it goes missing....also I need the backpack at my feet to stop my leg falling of !!! LOL...

    Thak you to Suze for the holiday wishes

    God Bless and keep safe everyone whilst I am away. xx

  10. I always find tips I can use from you Marie. I have the oven cleaning tip you gave us a couple weeks ago on stand by.

    The little Raggedy is so charming. If you have put her up for adoption on your selling site, she's not there now. Some lucky person will be loving her soon. xoxo

    Sybil - Have a safe and fun trip.

  11. I haven't actually listed her yet Valerie! Maybe today!

    I still have the oven cleaning tip in the queue too! Love you! xoxo
