Am I the only one disappointed with last nights final episode of Broadchurch? Boo, hiss, now we have to wait for a new series, a cliff hanger in every sense of the word!
Patricia I do agree with you regarding yesterday's card, I do believe not many folk will know who a "Lossie loon and Broch Quine" are. Loon and quine are local terms for boys and girls up here in the North of Scotland. I for one, with two boys think loon is a great description, where I come from however, it has a whole other meaning!
Lossie is short for Lossiemouth, the next village east of us and Broch is used locally for someone who comes from Burghead, the next village west of us.
Now you know.
As for the cookies, I came home from work today hoping for a quick cup of tea and biscuit before getting the boys. As Kylie would say, "I should be so lucky!"
The biscuit barrel was empty. So much for baking cookies.
Gannets the lot of them!
Why do we bother?!*
Back to today, as I've been beavering away at work I have nothing I have made to show you but then I started to tidy the floor of my craft room and found this in a box. I thought you might like to see it.
It is handmade, just not by me.
Last time my parents visited they brought with them quite a few items of mine from my childhood.
They had been clearing out the loft, I did tell mum to let my nieces have any of my toys that she found. She however, decided that as I'd kept them so lovely that I should really keep a couple of my dolls.
This was one of them.
You don't see many of these dolls now but it is a topsy-turvy doll, one end is cinders crying as she can't go to the ball in her rags, the other end is Cinderella in her ball dress and finery "She shall go to the ball!"
She also has a hand written note on her arm......
I do remember "looking after her" very well and not really playing much with her, as you can see she is in perfect condition. I only wish she had been signed and dated, on the tag, so I know who made her and when. My brain hurts from trying to work out how old she is, I reckon that she must be about 38 years old, yikes!
She is wearing better than I am!
I must try and find out if my mum can remember anything at all about her, I'll let you know if I hear anything interesting.
That's all from me for today again, tea is just about ready and then hopefully I might get chance for a little more crocheting later. Have a good evening and stay warm, it's chilly out there tonight. x
