Blethers and blahs

Random ramblings from a chaotic life

December Daily 2010

on December 1, 2010

My poor neglected blog – apologies again and I promise to try harder from now on.  I actually have no excuse as today was the third day our schools have been closed due to the snow, which is about 4 foot deep and still falling!  We were told today that we will be closed for the rest of the week, which has panicked me slightly as the Lego Challenge is next week and we still have to put a presentation together and make a model wheelchair!  The snow is the last thing I need.  Fingers crossed it stops soon and we can make it next week.  My youngest grandaughter’s birthday party is on Saturday, she will be 6 next week and this will be her first party so yet another reason to hope for an improvement in the weather.

Up until today I have managed to stay home but the cupboards were emptying fast so it was off to the shops via taxi.  I have spent hours clearing snow off my car and digging it out but there is no way I can get out of my street.  In fact I came home today to find a neighbour had kindly cleared the parking area but in doing so had dumped a 2 foot square mound of snow across the front of all the parked cars, including mine.  What’s worse he actually asked if I was pleased with his work and I have to say he was very lucky I didn’t tell him what I thought 🙂  The day had been a success apart from trying to get a taxi this morning and then waiting 2 hours for a taxi home only to be told it had been cancelled by the company due to the weather, but they hadn’t bothered to tell us.  I have to take my hat off to the taxi drivers we did get though, and I told them repeatedly how grateful we were.  By we I mean myself, my daughter, her children and my youngest son, whose shopping I was getting while I was out.

Enough of the moans, today is the first day of advent and aslo day 1 of this years December Daily.  I loved making last years but due to some problems getting photos processed in order to not have a backlog of pages I have decided to do it digitally this year.  Here is the first page which I really enjoyed making.

I initially thought about having a thread through all the pages but I ended up with a more diverse range of pages than last year and have loved making them so far.  At the moment I am thinking about getting them printed 8×8 and then binding them with simple covers but this may well change as time progresses.  I will be making my book up till the end of December because if I only go to Christmas it will include Katy’s birthday but not her younger brother’s whose birthday is on December 29th.  I still have about 4 pages to make from scratch but I am sure I can manage that before the schools go back.  Here’s to more regular updates.  Take care x x x

    Great page Iruk 🙂 I adore the little snowman and rabbit. Great pictures too, so many on one page. I love the fact you are doing yours in digi format, it certainly opens you up to so many more papaer/embelishments etc.
