So here we go - this is what my November looked like -
The most important numbers of all are how many days to the next convention - only 90 days till the Marillion convention in Port Zelande, The Netherlands. We now have another addition to our cottage so as well as looking forward to the 3 gigs and other activities, we are also looking forward to meeting our 2 new Dutch friends!!
Nephew no 7 was 18 - he chose to go out for a meal as he is not really a party goer, so we went to a lovely place in the old railway station that is conveniently only a 5 minute walk from our house.
(Not the birthday boy LOL but me with my lovely Dad and niece no 4)
2 musical evenings in 1 weekend -
No 1 with the delightful Kerry Ellis & Brian May on their Born Free acoustic tour, it was a magical candlelit evening for a very worthy cause - it makes my blood boil that there are sick people out there whose idea of holiday entertainment is to go out and kill beautiful Lions and call it sport - I hope karma truly bites them back right on the bum (this is the polite version for my blog of what I would like to happen to them)
I will admit to shedding a few tears when Kerry sang this with this poignant video playing in the background.
No 2 - Paul Carrack
I just love seeing music live and he had a very talented band with him. You forget how many good bands he has been a part of - Ace, Squeeze, Mike and the Mechanics.
November was also a busy month for fund raising - I open up my home for a whole day to sell my cards, jewellery and the knitted goods that my Mum makes. I also sell Avon and donate the commission from that order. So far the total stands at £182 raised and once everybody has paid for their Avon orders there should be at least another £40 to give to Children with Cancer Fund (Polegate)
I sold virtually all my Christmas cards so then had to spend a weekend making another 59 so that I had enough cards to send out. Because of the Christmas cards most of my other crafting has gone out of the window this month but I still managed to do 5 birthday cards, 3 layouts, 2 bracelets and 15 blog posts.
Right I am off to Julie's blog to confess my lateness for this month - if you fancy joining in yourself next month you can find out all about how to take part right here
