Wasn’t happy with the previous Christmas tree so I tweaked it so it doesn’t look so top heavy ;)
It is my mother-in-law’s birthday today. So I gave her a bottle of handmade bubble bath (which I made back in September, because I planned ahead. Kind of.), and some home-made soap (pictured). The soap is vanilla scented, and I wrapped it in greaseproof paper, and the little parcels together with twine. I then added a K-9 tag made from clay and painted silver because she is a Doctor Who fan. I also included a Tardis charm on the cellophane wrap I used to bundle it all together. I hope she likes it.
Comfort In The Presence Of Strangers
The thought of approaching a total stranger and chatting to them in order to take their portrait used to be a daunting prospect, but it gets easier the more you do it. Smile, relax and take time to listen to their story.
Now I find that some of the most interesting people are those I have yet to meet.
The former South African president died today at age 95. Remember him through his uplifting and revolutionary words.
