A child after my own heart....

Wondering around our blogging community I see lots of plans getting made, lots of excitement and everyone blogging a little less as their busy lives, at this time of year, take us away from what we do...There is a lot happening at the Suzie Sews Household, and some days its good and others not so good, on the not so good days we will be found pulling on our woolly jumpers, scarf, hat and mitts as we head outside and at the moment the 'outside' is just breath taking...
I feel very lucky to live in the place I call HOME, going for walks right from the front door and so much history in the area it seeps out of the brick work of the houses.  Walking through the woods, past ponds and lakes you can really feel the passing of time and a true sense of belonging and worth...
Yes there has been a lot of walking of late, blowing away the cob webs, feeling the chill on your skin, enjoying the light despite there being no power from the suns rays, all day it stays white, crisp, white, clean and FRESH...
Mean while back in the cosy warmth... we are going through a lot of our things at the moment and we are all finding things that take us back to a different time.  I captured this moment... a special moment for Mommy... A child after my own heart.  As my son found my Dads camera, an old one, not a digital... it was played with for hours, with comments from him that showed his joy of holding a camera with weight, that clicks and moulds into your hands... Yes I could relate to this moment, a time when I used to steel moments looking at my dads camera's, holding them and enjoying the gentle joy that taking pictures holds for me now...


SO this afternoon is the Nativity play, always a special moment in the season, and tonight the Christmas tree and all the lights and shiny 'kitchness' of our Christmas unfolds....

OK off to make another button wreath...going through glue sticks at an alarming rate...

I wish you the joy of the season...

ooooh that lake picture is soooo lovely. Boy do I wish I was walking around it today - but no I have frantic Christmas shopping to attend to! Last night my iron broke right in the middle of a mega sewing session, so it's off to Argos for me now!

Hi Suzie - I was thinking of you today when I bought a ball of self striping sock wool (making a pair of socks is on my 'Things to do in 2009' list) - Natalie x
