Tara is back from her Christmas shenanigans – a celeb encounter, some reindeers and Adam Ant – what a combo! Here she is…
I’m back……for now!
Since last writing, my girlies and I did another Christmas Fair, this time in Crowborough at the Beacon School. Unfortunately, we all came away slightly disappointed as it wasn’t a great success. Our stall did look lovely mind and I did manage to take some of our stock into work where my friends bought some bits but it was still not as good as we had hoped for. I sold the reindeer pictured here in the middle and then the other two who I named “Raspberry” and “Strawberries and Cream” to 2 ladies at work! I did however buy the bargain of the century, just look at these fab knitted stockings! They were 50p each so I had the lot! I can’t wait to put them together in a garland for my fireplace when I start decorating my house for Crimbo!
As well as the usual boring everyday chores we all have to do, I have been working very hard in my new job which I think is going ok, I have had some tough challenges with my machine Bridget mind you but am using a different sewing foot which I am hoping will help me to improve!
We have been to a couple of gigs (Adam Ant and my beloved Keane, more on this later) and have also had a poorly cat who after fighting, came back from the Vets 5ml of pus lighter from the bite mark in his head! Poor thing! Hubby captured him in this picture mid lick which is so funny as he still has his tongue out! He is 100% better now which is great too!
I was bucked off Bomber on Saturday and now have a very bruised bottom and sore back! It wasn’t a bad fall but he is SO big, it was such a long way to the ground!
Adam Ant was playing at De La Warr in Bexhill and we went along to that gig a few weeks ago. My bridge camera was confiscated as the bouncer thought it was a professional camera, however I did manage to sneak a few shots before getting caught! As usual he was fantastic, such a talented and entertaining chap!
With this is mind, I smuggled the camera in wrapped in my scarf to the Keane gig at the Brighton Centre that I went to last night! The lead singer Tom has been poorly of late and was not on his usual form to start with but after warming up, he was belting the songs out! He has such a great voice and I have to admit that I am in love with him! What made this gig for me was when beforehand just as we stopped at the traffic lights before turning off to park the car, Tim Rice-Oxley pulled up in his Discovery next to us! I was desperately hoping he would turn around so that I could wave at him but he was too busy playing with his stereo! He would have no doubt given me a look if I had caught his eye but it was still a nice treat for me to spot him!
