Happy Winter Solstice

If any bloggy friends are reading then I'd like to wish you a fabulous festive season whatever you celebrate and I hope for a happy and peaceful 2016 for everyone.  x

I will be having a non existent Christmas, other than a few nice bits of food it will be the same as any other day right now as I'm in the full throws and mess of packing. It's a bit of a nightmare, I forgot how awful packing was and having aquired more stuff over the years it's not a nice experience.

We are moving our belongings into storage until moving in January and living with the essentials until then. Apparently the average house will have about 100 boxes for a move, I've already done about 110 and still have my office and kitchen to dismantle amongst other things. However, I do feel that us creative types have more 'stuff' than most people. Had I been a person who didn't do things then I wouldn't have nearly as much stuff, but I do, and where I'm moving to I won't easily be able to buy wool or fabric or the like so it's important I salvage what I can. That said I've taken sacks of stuff to the charity shops, the tip and I suspect I might need a clearance place to remove the final bric a brac and the washer as it's too heavy for us to lift out of here so it will have to go.

This is how the storage container is filling up

I will take a break from packing tonight as I'm doing a farewell supper with a couple of friends at one of my oldest and favourite veggie restaurants in Hull so that will be nice and I hope to get some pics.
So I will sign off now and wish you and yours all the best.

Happy Solstice Sally!
I'm sure the thought of your lovely new home will more than compensate for a non existent Christmas and lets face it as long as you have lovely food what more do you need.
Best wishes for the move, I hope it all goes well for you.
Happy Christmas, enjoy that food,

P.S.Thanks for the beautiful card, what an amazing artist!

Happy winter solstice to you too. And good luck with the packing. When I moved flats years and years ago, my boyfriend (now husband) promised me a kaffe fassett knitting kit of my choice if I could get my crafting down to two bin bags. Little did he know or understand the notion of gathering up crafting stuff.
