Hi everyone sorry I haven't been around but just so busy and now my poor wee mummy is in hospital!! This is the first 2 mins I've had to myself and thought I would wish you all a fab Christmas and a Happy New Year when it comes!

Fingers crossed my mum gets better and will hopefully be out for Christmas!! Poor wee soul that she is!!

Well off again, take care everyone and have a smashing time!!

Merry Christmas
