Hello, I'm back!!

Hello everyone and sorry for being away for so long. Life's been a little hectic of late, I've been working overtime at work, trying to get the house moved on a little bit for Christmas and trying to be creative and build up my stock levels for my Christmas stall which is getting closer and closer (I keep getting butterflies in my stomach worrying that I haven't done enough, but I'll blog about that later).
On top of all that my computer has been excruciatingly slow and seemed to be having a tantrum every time I wanted to enter a website, it kept closing everything down! Needless to say that needed to be sorted out.
But here I am again and I must say it's great to be back. I've been taking sneaky peeks at all of your blogs but due to the fact that I've been using other peoples computers it's literally been in...have a quick scan...and out. So I need to do some catching up - great, that will be my job this Sunday with a big mug or two of hot chocolate (with squirty cream and sprinkles of course).

That said it hasn't all been boring stuff over the last couple of weeks there has been a little R&R time too...
A couple of weeks ago a friend took me to see Wales v Australia play rugby in Cardiff. I'm not really a sporty kind of girl but I must admit I do like a good game of rugby now and then (watching not playing that is) so I jumped at this chance to see two great teams go head to head, and I have to say it was bloody brilliant!!
Here are the Australians.

The marching band.

The Welsh mascot...(the goat not the bloke)

And here come the Welsh team complete with flame throwers - or were they little Welsh dragons?

National anthem time...there were definitely a few teary eyed Welsh men in the crowd at this point.

Warm up time...

and then off we go, play time. In the end Australia won but I can't remember the score! The match was followed by a drink or two in a very crowded Cardiff and a take away curry - perfect.
A good day all round.
