My smiles this week are two one hour phone calls yesterday to family............ my Son in Darwin Australia and my nephew in Auckland, New Zealand. It was so lovely to catch up on eveyones news.
Because of time differences, it is usually email communication.
My next one has kept me smiling all over Christmas,
I made him just before Christmas and he is made from wadding, felt and buttons.
Next comes the little brave snowdrop
I planted these at the end of September, but because it has been so mild, I found this on Christmas morning, today it has closed slightly with the bitter cold wind.
And my last smile are these brave roses
This is the third time it has flowered this year, I thought it had finished in October and I cut it down when tidying up the garden. At the beginning of December it threw out 4 new flowers, I felt so sorry for it when it snowed here on Boxing Day.
A lesson to us all on never giving up........keep trying and you will succeed!
