(Sorry about that!)
It looks like... for the first time in about 10 days... the temperature (here in chilly Scotland) has crept up above freezing!
But, as always... there is a cloud on this particular silver lining.... it's now grey, windy and p*ssing down with wintry rain!!!!
Ach well, whit kin ye dae?
Here's something that you might like...
My dear departed mum LOVED this time of year and really got into the "Christmas Spirit" with all of the tacky XMAS tat like flashing Santa earrings,
Rudolph antlers or tinsel-covered hats. (I know.... I know....)
My immediate family don't usually swap gifts (apart from gifts for the kids!) - we all put money into a big "pot" instead and then have our own
"Christmas Lottery" where we nominate our fave charities by writing their names on little slips of paper and drawing out a Winner to receive the
It's great fun and has become a bit of a tradition for us.
But... this Year (because mum is no longer with us) we decided to mix things up a bit in her honour!
So, we will be introducing the 1st Annual Grannie Vi Christmas Headgear Competition!
We all have to MAKE and wear our own Christmas headgear (anything goes, the more outlandish the better).
We then cast votes in an X-Factor styleeee to choose which is the best, and the winner gets to nominate which charity receives the "money pot" in
honour of my mum!
It should be a hoot! and my mum would have loved it.
I shall TRY and remember to take photos!
