Bad blogger catch up - Part 1

Ok, its official - I am a bad blogger and very lazy. No excuses and I apologise, so without further ado, here is part 1 of the catch up;

December came and went in a flash and so did Christmas. This year we decided to model our Christmas tree on the one displayed in the Tate gallery, that and the fact neither MP or I could be bothered decorating it. So this was our tree 2010 ............


I am more than pleased with the finished effect :o)

Christmas was a bit of a wash out. MP had been struggling with a cold for a few days, I started to feel ill just before Christmas eve and Mum was full of a cold and a chest infection so we all wanted to postpone Christmas lunch till we felt well enough to enjoy it but Dad was feeling fine and was mortified at the prospect of not having a Christmas dinner so we were out voted (work that one out 1:3 !!). So we have dinner and I dont think any of us did it justice (except Dad) and MP and I made a hasty retreat back to our sick beds. Pressies were exceptional as usual, just cant remember what I got at the minute :o)

New Year passed with no celebration, I think MP and I went to bed well before midnight and I dont think we did anything New Years Day. Gone is the family tradition of a walk on the beach at Lytham St Annes. It's not the same when you don't have a dog to take with you - that's half the fun. Still that may soon be rectified, as MP, Dad and I have decided to start looking for a dog and hopefully win Mum round when presented with a new family addition.

After the first flurry of snow, and the purchase and fitting of winter tyres, we didn't seem to have much more, which I am overjoyed about. So what if it has rained non stop, who cares, at least it isn't snowing!!

29th January, my mate Kathb and I tripped up to Art from the Heart in Harrogate for an art journalling backgrounds class by Kate Crane of The Kathryn wheel fame. Excellent day, amusing and productive day was thoroughly enjoyed and nice to spend some time with my pal Kath :o)

Kate working hard on her pages

The pages and tag Kath did at the class (dont know what I have done with the photo of mine!)

So that's January accounted for. There has been some further art journalling but the photographer has been a little slack of late, so more pics will follow (under threat of severe injury) so till part 2, take care and see you soon.
