More Garden Centre pictures

Here's another 2 pictures of one of the garden centres near Tamworth..they dont look as good in a small picture..when you actually see them the lights are so pretty & bright..and some of them have room settings with fireplaces etc..they look very festive..the one on the left shows my friend Margaret standing in one of the displays.

Garden Centre

Here's a picture of one of the garden Centres in Tamworth. We have 5 in & around the area..they weren't quite as good this year as previous years..but it was still lovely to see the lights and baubles..I have more pics if you want to see them...(but don't want to bore anyone)..I love them but you can't see them properly in a small picture like this as some of the detail is missing...I will put more on if you want me too ??..had a lovely day with 3 friends.. had lunch in one of the centres..we visited 4 of them..will maybe do the other one next week.. have seen it already but forgot to take my camera.

My Tree looks Drunk !!

Is it me, or does my Christmas tree look lop-sided ??..mind you i did have a couple of glasses of Baileys while i was putting it up !!
The cats have ingnored it now the 'newness' as wore of...except Bailey who likes to sleep underneath it, but he loves sleeping under a tree in the garden.. he thinks its put up just for him the way he struts up to it and gets himself comfotable.
I am off to the garden Centre in a minute..i'll take my camera & hopefully get a few pictures..then Monday i am going to Birmingham so i will hopefully take some pitures of the lights in the city...but they look much better at night when they are lit-up..i'm not sure if we will be back before it gets dark enough...we will see.

Laura without the make.

This is Laura my grandaughter as she is day to day...she was all done up on the previous one, with make-up & a new hair do...I think she looks a lot older on the other one..a bit too old i think !! This is how she looks unless she is going out somewhere...I dont want her to grow up too soon..but i suppose all grandma's feel like that with their grandchildren dont they ??
She is getting tall though she is nearly 5ft 7in (in bare feet)..so she towers above me, especially when she as high heels on...but Nessa is quite tall as well.
I put my tree up last night..and i am going to finish decorating it today, so i will put a picture on my blog when it is all done...the cats fight over who will sleep underneath it...last night 3 of them were cuddled up underneath there...
I am going to the garden Centre tomorrow..must remember to take my camera there as well.

Now I really feel old !!

This is Laura my grandaughter...I often call her my little darlin, as she as always been so sweet & thoughtful...but now so grown up too !!
It is a bit of a shock when you realize that your daughters 'baby' is now a woman. I have never seen her done up for a function before..it quite took me by surprise when i saw her...obviously to me she as always been gorgeous..but she when she is 'done up' she looks about 20 instead of her sweet 16 years...not too sure if i am happy about that !!!...but she is a very sensible girl as well, so i know she will be fine.
I am going to take my camera out next week to the shops & garden centres in the area..and then put some of those pics onto my Blog..Iwould have done it before but with Vanessa here i didn't get time..we were out each day visiting and shopping...i do miss her now she as gone home...but i'll see her again before Christmas, and we are going to spend the holiday together.
