Friday Nook


Who's up for a Friday Nook?.. as I think Monday will be out of the question in the big lead up next week. My Mum turns 70 on Christmas Day so I am having a Christmas brunch here for the family...for those who actually want to get out of bed for the occasion. Yes, we've already had some complaints logged... too early..... too hot. Yes, the family dynamics have already started.... ahh Christmas... don't ya love it. Just keep smilin', just keep smilin'. Can I hide out here perhaps?

Well I am spending the day with my Mum today. We're going to have a morning tea out somewhere and then trawl some antique shops. The weekend? ... just more dirt shuffling! Thank you all for your truly lovely comments this week. I plan to put in a big 'visit bloggy friends session' early tomorrow morning, on my front porch with coffee in hand. See you then!

  8. Love the symmetry! Hope you have a nice day treasure hunting. I know what you mean when you say the "family fun" has started. Next year, I swear we are going away for the whole lot of it - no one else to deal with ha!

  14. Yes my Friday Nook is very 'Karnas Hus' isn't it and deliberately so. Karna has inspired me from the word go with so many little 'destinations' in my home. Please visit her gorgeous home at: www.karnashus.blogspot.com. Thanks for all your lovely wishes for my Mum. I am going to tell her to tune in and read them all. 70 years, I can't believe it. It was only yesterday that she was my age, 43, gorgeous and glamorous, educated and eloquent... a single Mum who held her head high and struggled to give her 3 children the best that she could. I like to think that she has blessed me with her tenacity gene. I will post some pictures from her birthday party on Christmas Day for all to see! A-M xx
