//Hi to all you fabulous Bloganistas - a wee quick Blog before the Bells at Hogmanay (Midnight on New Year's Eve) -- saying this has been a year and a half would be putting it mildly, however, we seem to have survived it one way or another -  but when all is said and done, "'s tae us, wha's like us, damned few and they're awe gone awa... ."  I'm still here, this pic is me at 3 months old, many moons ago.
So, as we prepare to close out 2012, let me say cheerio, toodle pips, ta ra and all that jazz - Buddy and Corey join in with me in wishing each of you All The Very Best for 2013 - Go Far and Travel Safely!

I hope this works, double click on the http:// below and  let's hope it works.

Christmas Time at 16 Tomey Road.

Ho, Ho, Ho, to all you fabulous Bloganistas -- well, it's that time of the year again, and love it or dread it  we can't escape it try though we might, so let's enjoy.  We have our tree up in the living room and all the decorations inside and outside so we are now able to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labour. 
A couple of Blogs ago I promised I would post some pics of the new ceramic pieces I have been making - no need to introduce you to this guy.           I also made myself a chip/crisp and dip set, really feel quite chuffed with it - a Pink Poinsettia and the glazes turned out really well, all FDA approved so it is safe for food - it comes in two pieces.

Here you can see Santa's House is being visited by Carollers and a couple of kiddy winkles sledding down the hill, of course Old St. Nick is standing guard keeping an eye on things (he'splastic, I didn't make him.

Glad to say that I have finished my shopping, mailed off the parcels that I can't deliver personally - feels like I can breathe more easily now that this is done.  This year I was a wee bit lazy, I sent out electronic cards, really nice ones though.  
We are having such a warm spell of weather just now, cold in the a.m. and in the mid to high 40's (7 Celsius) during the day, long may it last.   
Buddy and Corey have their stockings hanging on the fireplace mantle and keep checking each day to see if Santa has been here yet - 12 days and counting. 
This is the time of the year when our thoughts go back over the years thinking on our loved ones, those who are with us and those who have passed on, leaving wonderful memories present and past, so take a moment to reflect and give thanks for all that we have and the people who, over the years, have blessed our lives.   However you, yourself, celebrate at this time of the year, let me wish you and yours a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy Hogmanay (New Year's Eve in Scotland) and New Year 2013.  May all your wishes come true.  Will check in next year - let's pray it will be a good, healthy one.
