A Christmas Story From Me To You

Ahh Xmas is here… Time to eat too much, drink too much, be depressed, argue with a relative or 2 perhaps… Not my fave time of year, but I’m sure if I had human children, I would think otherwise… I do have fond childhood memories of this holiday though…

My mother and I had a tradition. Right before December, we would travel slightly out of town to this German imported food store, that vaguely looked like a ginger bread house. It was there, Mamma would pick out an advent calendar for me. She would hang it on the wall in the TV room behind the couch. And Dec 1st I would stand on the couch & pry the first little door open! And there would be a tasty treat of chocolate for me! OMG! So exciting!! But when she was away, I learned how to pry the back plastic off calendar apparatus & have a months worth of chocolate all at once! I could even pop the back plastic bit back on & she would be none the wiser!! Except then I just opened empty doors for the rest of the month…

But mamma came up with a solution for me – she would count out how many days there were and put the corresponding number of dried red beans in a Ball Mason jar. So, on top of opening my empty door, I got to take a red bean out of a jar, which seems kinda lame now, but at the time, it was exciting! Since I was a greedy little monster, this went on for a few years, and how I looked forward to those jars of dried beans! Ha Ha! Hoppy Halidays! oxo gd

Happy 2 Year Anniversary To Me!

Wow it’s been 2 whole years since I literally fled The Big Smoke and made my way to the quiet seaside. A move, as I mentioned before that I was not 100% on… But what wonderful changes it has brought into my life. I have a great group of friends and am making new ones everyday! I still miss my London family too tho! Being here has allowed me to have the space and affordability to pursue and experiment with other artistic channels and mediums. Living right on the sea & horizon is very calming, not just for me but for my fur babies too! And yes, I am as in love with this wonderful flat today as I was 2 years ago! It is my little piece of heaven on earth. Like living in a fantasy world, except it’s not a fantasy – it’s my life! I am so blessed! Thank you Universe! oxo gd
