It's definately getting a bit colder here! Doring the night it's a bit freezing and also at day time it's just a few degrees above zero. It seems a bit of winter is slowly accessing this part of the world. Althugh I rather like summertime, I don;t mind too much, as long as it stays dry. Looking out of the window I see for the moment a blue sky with some sun shining, but also a few grey clouds approaching. They said it could happen that today there wil be a bit of rain, may be even wet snow, and if it holds on it should turn into a bit of real snowfall. Brrrr, we will see if that happens.
Yesterday I couldn;t do too much on the designing because we had a visit of Rob, the brother of Jan. We could prepare ourselves to it because he didn;t came but mid-afternoon LOL! We don;t see eachother a lot, so if he comes over there is some catching up to do and it's mostly Rob who talks then, hahaha. He is such a sweet guy, that you cannot be mad at him if you wanted. His son was with him too but he's always very quiet. He likes to sit and listen to us and he seems to have a great time by just doing that. Well, he has a hidden smile sometimes when we talk with his father LOL. Oh I had to laugh to at a time. Dominique, the son, had a phonecall on his mobile. I suppose the friend at the other side asked him where he was. Answer: "Oh I am at my auntie's"! Not : at my uncle Jan's or at my uncle and aunt, no, twice even "at my auntie's". LOL I must have earned a big credit and kind of respect over the years, may be because when he was a little boy I once gave him a good(not too hard) slap on his bump, because he wouldn;t listen to me and after warning him twice and telling him too that I don;t warn 3 times at a row, well it happened. After that, when he came over he never did anything out of order anymore, or when he tried, I only had to look at him and say to him: you know what happens if you get me angry, hey? So it must have made an impression on him! But he likes me it seems, if he comes to visit and I ask him to go out with me to do some shopping or so, he gladly goes with me. I think his father tries to do a good job with him, Rob had to take care for his son alone from the time he was about two years old and din;t always had it easy. I admire him for it, really!
Well, when they come to us, I always try to do a little extra for them. Or they stay over for dinner and I make something they do not make for themselves, or if they come just in the afternoon I try to have something like little snacks or so. Yesterday I had a good filled soup and some french bread with garlic butter. Especially the boy eats then like two icebears LOL! It's nice to make somebody a bit happy with such a little thing, isn't it?
I just came from the blog of my friend Snowy http://silversnowyraven.blogspot.com/ and she gave me a good laugh! She also is on Facebook, just to have contact with a few friends and to promote her scrapping kits a bit. But now it seems, she has messages from a row of men who are all interested in her!! ROFL! Well, she is not interested in this kind of messages, it;s even a bit annoying, I understand, but I had to laugh hahahaha.
Then you should visit Edna's blog too http://missednasplace.blogspot.com/ , she made some pretty pics of birds. She makes wonderful pictures, she is gifted for that!
And Minky http://thecontinentofsulina.blogspot.com/ made again a few lovely cards in Christmasstyle!
Rofl, I;ve done my share of promoting again and now on to your freebie. It may not be one for everybody, but perhaps you know this weekend it was the holiday of Chanuka. As we had to make the colour challenge in the forum about this holiday, I will give you this kit, named it "Celebrate the Light". We were supposed to make just a little kit, or perhaps a quickpage, but as usual I was carried away again, so I ended up with a full kit. Hope somebody can use it. Now you all have a marvellous day!
