Many thanks for the all your support, my blogging buddies, and for reading the fashion horror story in the last post. As I said, I was unable to post photos for a while due to the computer images and the blog page not talking to each other. But a nice IT person put a little word in my ear, and since then, viola! They have kissed and made up and now are friends again. Harmony restored!!
So, it's much too late to talk about Christmas, but here it is anyway. This is either way, way late for Christmas, or about 11 months early. This is what I would have posted if I could....
Despite Vintage Vix saying that only 3 people went to church on Christmas, all those 3 must have lived in Liverpool and invited 797 of their friends to the service. It was packed.
It doesn't really show that well, but I am about 20 pounds (10 kilos) lighter than Christmas 2011's photo. I didn't exactly diet, but did "encourage" the excess to leave by being a bit more active.
In the run-up to Christmas, I got a delightful order from one of my customers. He ordered perfume for his wife, and "anything else that would make up a nice Christmas gift" for her, up to a certain value. I volunteered to gift wrap the whole thing, and being a man, he thought that was a great idea.
This is what it looked like:
This is the products wrapped:
My customer said that his wife was well pleased with the whole thing, and it was a marvellous validation for me that the husband had the confidence that I would produce something lovely. It was a win-win! (And a nice lucrative order!)
Well, that's it. No more Christmas photos til December 2013, I promise.
