The Solstice Girl Speaks

My birthday falls on 21 December, the Winter Solstice.
(Okay, it sort of sneaked into 22 December this year but I'm not taking any notice) 
Somehow that makes me feel quite special.  Most of my cards mentioned that I was special - Mr C said it meant "special needs" but I don't believe him!
Among the lovely pressies I received, my work colleagues bought me this fabulous bag from Past Times.  It's big so I should be able to get all my rubbish in there.
When The Girl Genius was a baby I made her a little pink Santa hat.  Three years on she still has it but it looks like a pimple on the top of her head now, so she asked me for another.  Yes, it also had to be pink.  I made her an elf hat so she can be a bit like Jovie from the end of "Elf".
 The rest of this post is just a curious little montage of festive things I snapped around the house in a bored moment.  The pics aren't very good but, hey, it's not a great camera so it's not all my fault!


Just in case I don't get chance to post again before the Big Day, do have a lovely Christmas.  Remember, my blog friends, as Greg Lake sang "The Christmas you get, you deserve", and you all deserve the best! xxx
