I seem to be having a problem with blogger and wondered if anyone else has ? I have tried to upload a new header photo on a few occasions and every time I do I get a message saying " sorry but you have exceeded your photo upload quota" but how come I can keep uploading photo's to the main body of my posts then ?? I don't understand, anyone else had this problem ??? if so please tell me what you did about it.
I haven't been a good blogger of late and I feel bad about that. I have however been reading other peoples blogs and it seems that everyone is busy doing Christmasy things. There is certainly nothing for me to blog about the allotment as I haven't been up there for weeks and I don't intend growing anything throughout the winter, I guess I'm out of love with my plot at the moment, but come the Spring I hope to be back in the mood again, fingers crossed !
All my presents are now bought and most wrapped and some even given out to those I wont see over the Christmas. I am working in London again this year with with the homeless. 'Crisis' has been going for 40 years this year and they do a wonderful job, not just at Christmas but all year round.
I will work an early shift on Christmas day and a late shift on 27th. I can't wait as last year I got so much pleasure from it that I didn't feel that I was sacrificing my Christmas at all, in fact it was special working with the people there, and we had such a lovely Christmas day. I get to spend Boxing day with the family and give the grandchildren our presents to open then, so they have another present opening day. We will also spend New Year with the family, so what's a few days to give up for a worthy cause. In case your wondering ! my husband will be well looked after with the family and doesn't mind me doing 'my thing'.
I also get to spend time with my youngest son and his partner as they are volunteering again as well, so I will have Christmas dinner with them in the evening when we finish our shift.
I haven't really put up lot's of decorations as we wont be at home, but a few here and there and lovely candles look warm and inviting.
