If you are anything like most people this time of year
then you will have enough to do without reading this . . .
but I just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas old school style.
Last night we happened upon some retro episodes of children’s TV from the BBC . . . on BBC Four.
And it was really interesting . . .
My son was fascinated and enjoyed watching some of the 70’s shows that me and my husband had seen in our childhood.
It was a real trip down memory lane.
It reminded me that Christmas really is for Children.
And it reminded me of a poem I had written as a child . . . that was stashed away in a drawer.
So from a childhood me here’s wishing you all a great Christmas . . . .
Look in your stocking
Wow what a way to start Christmas Day
There are presents galore, who could ask for more
what a way to start Christmas Day
There’s a turkey for dinner, Christmas Pudding and Cake
Outside in the Snow there are snowmen to make
If we take out the sledge we can race down the hills
And pile up the snow on the Windowsills
Wow what a way to spend Christmas Day
And if the ice on the pond is thick and strong
We’ll skate back and forth the afternoon long
And when the moon shines, and everywhere’s dark
We’ll go singing Carols and walk in the park
Hip Hip Hooray for Christmas Day
Thanks for reading,
and I’ll see you all in 2016
Today’s blog is a bit late. . . . although I imagine you never really noticed. . . . I seem to have a few things that have had to be prioritised . . .
Just for a change, even though it did all get a bit stressful for a while. . . things are coming together nicely . . .
I can now relax and look forward to Christmas.

It’s that time of year when you have to try and fit Christmas into your normal schedule. . . and I have had so many things to do of late.
Last Friday, I had to forego the Lichfield Rugby Club breakfast meeting . . . . . .
Black and white . . . all clear cut . . . . obvious. . . self explanatory . . . . nice and easy . . .
. . . But is it?
There’s 50 shades of grey to get through first!
OK . . . . what do you know about sheep?
I am getting fairly knowledgeable, for a graphic designer . . .because this is the second project I have worked on that is for a sheep farming client.
Initially the client only wanted a re-vamp of his website . . . but after looking at the site in question . . it was immediately apparent that he did not have a logo.
. . . Now I must impress. . . I never EVER tell a client what they need. . . or what they should have. . . .
I love all the technology around us today – how easy it is to google anything without lifting any more than your arm to reach your phone. . . .
. . . my only frustration is how much time we spend without realising.
I finally got a smart phone last month – decided it was time to bring myself into the 21st Century . . .
(great phone incidentally – bought outright on SIM Free – Huawei Ascend G7 )
. . .the thing that nailed it was when I was at a business event, and the speaker said . . . “everyone get your phones out and tweet this” . . . .
. . . . and I felt like the only person in the room who couldn’t!
I also thought “this will help me to save time on my business social media” . . . .
Are you laughing yet? . . . . those of you who know. . . . Continue reading
