now I have my stamps from GKD and raring to go ... so have started with a group of 6 for my soprano friends...i just love the feel of christmas coming.. anticipation from all those years ago.. watching my mum making the mincemeat for pies.. and christmas puddings with silver threepenny bits in there.. ( one for everyone) we always thought it was just pure luck!.. and oh the excitement of hanging one of my dads socks on the end of thebed... and we were thrilled with the little presents and oranges/ nuts / crayons and books in side on christmas morning.. unlike today where pillow slips are the go and presents downstairs too.. just goes to show how much more affluent this generation is.
I'm a "baby boomer" originally from the UK! Liverpool. Home of the beatles!
I used to skip off down to the Cavern instead of going to learn ball room dancing.
I now live in Australia having emigrated in '87'. Best move we ever made! I met my husband David, when i was training to be a nurse. we have been married for 45 years we have two daughters and six grandaugthers... even the dog and cat are female.
I have retired from nursing... we have moved up the coast.. beautiful beaches and the Hunter valley with its fabulous wineries and great countryside...I now can craft to my hearts content...LOl....I take enormous pleasure and pride in watching my girls getting on with their lives with such enthusiasm... they are a constant source of love for David and me.
