✨✨🌟🏑🌲Cosy nights♥️


We've had frosty mornings & lots of Mizzle drizzle rain clouds and even sleety snow over Dartmoor this November. It's been bitterly cold ... We have had bursts of sun but blink and you might miss it. It's that time of year when I find it hard to be creative in the evenings. I just want to cosy up in my pj's and woollies and sip hot drinks and warm up in front of the fire. One day last week I was painting with my fingerless mittens on. I really do feel the cold. Lots of candles out and twinkly fairy lights to feel cosy. This month seems to have whizzed by in a flash again (I can hardly keep up) and I can't believe it's December at the end of this week!!. So it's yet again another catch up. ✨🌟 

✨πŸŒŸπŸ’•✨🌟We've had fireworks night in my Market town. Then a trip to the old part of the city for late afternoon tea & a walk round the Barbican including the Elizabethen gardens. Children in Need Morris dancing in my Market town... And I joined in on #Folktaleweek on Instagram which I managed to complete 3 paintings for using the prompts. I love seeing all the inspiring artists, crafts people on there too. We also enjoyed a vintage toy collectables fair where my partner has been down sizing some of his comic hero collections. He did really well our stall was like a bee hive at one point we felt like proper traders. I do love chatting to everyone there & so many old toys. But I was good I didn't buy anything. We also visited Exeter's Christmas market... 

It's been a very busy, hectic, tiring and emotional month for our family, lots going on behind the scenes and my mental health definitely has been suffering ... My daughter is still loving her new career in her Accountancy apprenticeship & job. But it's definitely still very tiring travelling & the walk to her new jobs premises. She also trains with a theatre drama group & started driving lessons every week. She's on her 6th driving lesson this week. So proud of her❤️
 I've been enjoying making a Christmas junk journal, recycling old magazines & clippings....A good way to take my mind off things ✨🌟🌲✨🌟 I'm not sure I'm quite ready for the build up to Christmas yet I've been struggling alot lately... Life is a bit of a roller-coaster at times... Wishing you all a merry December, x  K a z z y  x
