This week in pictures.....

First and Foremost:


Today is World AIDS Day - Keep the Promise........

This week I received a parcel from far, far away.......all the way across The Pond in Los Angeles....


It's a calendar with the very stunning photos taken by our own OldOldLady :-) Complete with a beautiful Christmas card and loving message.

Naomi? - love you, honey.

Next - photos of me on the web? Let's see.......baby photo, me sewing my borrowed re-enactment dress, me wearing my dress, me carrying my great-nephew, me with ck, me with Mrs A......I think that's it.....six!

MB came back from a car show brandishing a carrier bag. 'I bought you a present!' he declared. I ooh and ahhed appropriately (given that last time he got me a fab photo of JD!).....and he fished out of the bag.........

Not JD, but thoughtful just the same.......I needed tie-downs for my mattress for re-enactment in order to keep it rolled tidily.......thoughtful - but not JD.....

Finally, the felines have just received their Secret Paw for Christmas.......so it's off to do the shopping......

men are very good at the practical presents! At least he thought of you even with all those cars and other mechanical things around :-)

I can't wait to see your calendar - it looks absolutely fabulous!

Mr. Depp's quite the plat du jour with the lasses, isn't he?

Cool calendar, too. I always like OOLOTH's photos.

*adjusts expression to improve decorum*

Too bad about Johnny Depp. But it is always the thought that counts in a gift right? RIGHT! ;)

Looks like you had a very nice week. I hope you get some JD soon too.

I remember once, a long time ago (no it's not going to be a fairy story honest), probably 13/14 years, standing in the middle of a shopping centre on World Aids Day collecting money / handing out red ribbons. People walked past and ignored me, muttering under their breath. Someone told me I was disgusting to be collecting money for those people! Thank God attitudes have changed since then! *always wearing my red ribbon with pride* Thankyou for the reminder :o) And for the JD ~ eye candy always appreciated @ this time of the morning!
