|While I'm burbling on, take a look at just a few thing I got from Xmas. This is a build your own reindeer. I think it's supposed to be a Xmas decoration. I don't care. A reindeer is for life, you know, not just for Xmas.|
The woman on the phone from the DVLA said "What! You mean you've had the car since April and you've not registered it in your name?". Yes, that would be us. We had to pay £260 to unclamp the car, £100 for the tax disc, £25 to register the car and a further £100 fine for leaving an untaxed car in the road. I know exactly what you're thinking. Yup, we are first class idiots of the highest order *shakes head sadly*.

Joy of joys, the dining room window was slightly ajar and Mr J and P knew his keys were in the pocket of his coat which was slung over a chair. He found a tree pruning implement which we've never used, lying in the undergrowth that passes for a garden, and fished through the small opening, hooked the keys from the jacket pocket. and returned like a burglar in broad daylight back over the rear fence. Huzzah!
|......lots of lovely fabric bits.......|
And isn't it nice to meet the neighbours? But preferably not looking like complete idiots. Again.
|.....ripe for the patchworking methinks.|
Mallorca was lovely, thank you for asking; a welcome break from our pre-Xmas nonsense.
You didn't think you'd get away without seeing some holiday snaps did you?
The cathedral at Palma which was partly restored partly by Gaudi:
|Love these circular paper garlands. May have to copy.|
Love a bit of graffiti art (in Palma again):
Pretty Deia where Robert Graves lived...
The sea was very stormy here. Note the rainbow in the background:
Spotted this interesting sight in someone's back garden:
OK, I'm off now but just to let you know that I've finished my vintage sheet duvet cover and will reveal all in the next post. Just when you thought it couldn't get any more exciting....
