Corrie McKeague

Corrie is a missing British Military Serviceman who disappeared mysteriously after a night out in Bury St Edmonds in September 2016.  

Neither Corrie, his phone or his wallet have ever been found. 

Tonight from 8-10 pm UK time there is a tweet storm.  If you can please tweet to keep Corrie in the headlines and also to raise awareness as there are still people out there unaware of his disappearance. 

Tonight's hashtag is #letsfindcorrie 

Thank you

Party time..

Well yesterday was a new experience for me as I helped my neighbour with her sons 9th birthday party.   A Hummer limo ride for an hour complete with 15 kids, followed by food and party games.   All I can say was clean up was fun but the kiddies had a superb day and that's what it's all about.   Oh and when a 9 year old puts his arms around you and gives you a kisses several times throughout the day then says thank you for helping mum with my party..  awe bless my heart melted every time.   Love that boy to bits.  

Chilly..

Well we were threatened with snow last week and it sure felt like the baltic so it was time for the fur lined boots at work.  #snugasabug all day.  Happy girl.  

Argh..

Operation 'zone tidy' has begun and I've only just realised exactly how much stuff I have stored over the years..  it's going!!!

Chill time..

Hogmanay shopping done I treated the old man to dinner at Pizza Hut.   Just love their cream soda!  

My Boy. .

Spending some quality time with my old boy on new years day.  Love him to bits. 

Clowning around

When you're at work between Christmas and new year what else is there to do on a lunch break except send your colleague daft selfies lol 

Deep in thought

It may have been a fun day for us but in the back of my mind was those parted from their loved ones from troops, to homeless to the missing.  Lit a wee candle for them all especially #findcorrie 

Haha

Even got the old man joining in the stupidity lol 

Em..

Definitely who I get my stupidity from lol 

Hhmmm

Think was having just too much fun playing with my phone lol 

Mum never grows up!

Christmas Day

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone.  

Hope you all have a day filled with love, joy and cheer surrounded by family and friends.   

If you have an elderly neighbour or someone who lives alone nearby why not extend the hand of friendship and invite them over,  even just for a cuppa and cake.   You may well be their only Christmas cheer this year.  

Love to all
Xxx

Festive cheer

A couple of quick samples I managed to make for the shop.  

Having a play with my phone lol 

Ho ho ho

Look who dropped in lol..  

Christmas hat for work..  defo got a few funny looks lol 

Oh oh

Naughty elf made an appearance in work in the run up to Christmas!  

Cheeky or what!

When you arrive at work and find this because your co-worker knows you've been up all night sick and only had 2 hours sleep lol.   

#findcorrie

Not sure how many of you are aware of the missing airman Corrie McKeague who disappeared from Bury St Edmonds after a night out some 13 weeks ago.  

Sadly there have been a lot of missed opportunities on this case and the family are doing their best to raise funds to hire a private investigator and also to keep Corries name in the public name.   

I can't begin to imagine how a mother feels at any time knowing their child is missing and they will be in my mind even more so today with it being Christmas.   In support of their cause I decided to make a glass bauble for the tree which included some crystals for protection, jingle bells to guide him through the dark and a piece of lucky white heather as he's a fellow Scotsman.   

I hope and pray they receive a Christmas miracle today.

Tasty

When you take random pictures eating candy floss to send to absent friends lol

Finger licking good

When one of your besties come to stay and you pop to Pizza Hut for what turns out to be a two and a half hour meal session complete with a fantastic manager who came and sat down to have a conversation with us and a fun waitress who definitely decided we were completely bonkers by the time we left lol

Hubby enjoying the California view

When hubby sends you a picture from the pier to try and make you jealous lol 

Revamp

Whilst hubby was off visiting family in the States I decided to revamp some furniture..  as they say.. whilst the cats away the mice will play lol 

My Boy

The beautiful face I wake to every morning.  Love my fur baby so much.  

Hector the House Mouse

My new addition to the family lol 

Catch up time!

Can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged!   Time has just gone so quickly but let me try and do a quick update now and hopefully get back on track.   

So this is from 6th November when we happened to bump in to a few relaxed reindeer.  Saving their energy for today I guess lol.

Something witchy going on here

Well I wonder who this could be lol.   Seems that costume wear is going to be an annual occurrence in this house now at Halloween.  Absolutely love seeing the faces of the little ones when you open the door to them.   Not sure who's was the biggest kids this year, them or us lol.

Who is this

Halloween came around and a very odd person appeared in my house..  not quite sure who he was but he followed me round to my friends and home again but he did light the way with glow sticks and disappeared again by midnight lol.

Showtime..

Christmas crafting showtime at the SECC has now been and gone too as we quickly approach winter and Christmas.  The clocks have gone back an hour and the darkness creeps in all too early now.   Daylight is almost a thing of the past by 5pm.   Time to look out the thermals lol.

Happy Anniversary

Well 27th October seen the 3 year anniversary of Gordon and Brianna's wedding!   This year they are celebrating in style at Disneyland Florida.   Where oh where has the time gone..

Comfy?

When the mother comes to visit then makes herself comfortable and calls a friend whilst you're making the coffee lol. 

Oops how naughty

Some things are just too irresistible whilst making up the kids treats bags for Halloween lol.

Cards complete and bagged

I so adore these cute little cards.

Relaxing Sunday

Today will be a relaxing day..  wee bit of housework and washing followed by a little crafting then off out for dinner with the old hubby.   Need to have an early night as the step daughter and son in law have a flight to catch in the morning so we need to be up at 4am to get them to the airport on time.   How will I cope.. I usually go to bed between 2 and 3 lol.  

Anyway last week I managed to finish my bits and pieces for my Cat Protection cards so everything is ready just to be mounted on the cards now then bagged ready for sale. 

Time to unload the reload the washing machine now so toddles and catch you all again later.

Material for the patch

Bri also bought a pair of these gloves for £1 so she could cut one up to cover the patch

As Halloween approaches

Well our Brianna and Gordon are heading to Orlando on Monday and will be spending Halloween at Disneyland so Bri made herself a hairband and Gordon had ordered an eye patch from Etsy and got let down by the seller so Bri kicked in to action.. off to the shop she sent and bought a £1.50 kit which included a plastic eye patch.. phone call followed by a visit to me and she got started on altering it..
