Look what I have got.

Well Hello everyone, I am excited and delighted, why? Well I don’t usually win prizes…. I even once came second , but because only the first places were announced and I was told quietly, I have had to keep that a secret too. But I knew and for that I am happy.

Now I digress I was telling you all about my beautiful prize 💜. My lovely blog sister, Suzi Tench who blogs at My Colourful Life. Ran a competition drawn, the prize was a journal made by her. I won!

I missed the post lady when she brought the package on Thursday so Hubby popped up to town on the Friday to collect the package for me. Unfortunately he came up against a jobs worth , so he asked for it to be delivered again. It arrived today.

What a beautiful case
Full of goodies and a card.
With a perfect Maxim
Full of lovely things
My attempt at flatlay.

Then I had another surprise I opened up the journal and found it was all laid out for me month by month. 😁

Excuse my shadow

So thank you so much Suzi I can’t wait to start using it 💜💜

So here is the list of my goodies.

  • 4 beautiful magnetic page markers
  • 4 rolls of coloured tape
  • 4 flavoured teas
  • A Rose hand cream
  • A beautiful tin of scented candles
  • A very cute pink biro
  • A silver pencil case
  • A pack of thirty colouring pencils
  • A Zen colouring book
  • And by beautiful journal.

I am a lucky blogger, so I suggest everyone pops over to Suzi’s blog, this month she is doing a Blogmas Series.

Mary and Jo part 7

To day is the seventh day of Advent, leading up to Christmas. I would like to re-run my take on the Nativity story. I first wrote this in 2011, in the style of prosetry.

Mary and Jo.

The shepherds recovering unsure of what they had just seen,

The stunning angel was the strangest sight they had ever seen.

They fed the sheep then headed for the town.

Whatever it was they were obviously part of what was going down.

The star was still shining, visible for miles around.

None of them sure of what any of it meant

Yet angelth could only of been heaven sent.

Mares and Jo were both asleep,

Angels had them safe within their keep.

Not to mention the staff of the Hotel Delph,

Everyone there was wishing this special couple good health.

At night the new star shone up above

And during the day from no where came the dove.

In the town there was a buzz

What was all the fuss.

Something new was happening.

Not like the new style, or the new look

This would be important , this would make a book!

Winging towards them the three magi.com checking their charts and computers nothing must go wrong.

They all agreed they did not trust Herod.com

There was something about him that was not quite right,

The way he had questioned them into the night.

The men on the plane had gifts on their mind.

They had brought some for the child, of the most special kind.

Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold , well it is a change from a babygrow or a coat to keep him safe from the cold.

So now we have magi.com following their star.

And the shepherds on their way from near and far.

We have angels and doves and an child who will be born to a gentle mother mild.
