Hi Anna! :wave: :wave:

Fantastic work Elissa, I'm still hopeless at making graphic wallpapers etc but I did finish my Christmas sewing on time.

I forgot to photograph the covers I made as gifts but these are mine.Posted ImagePosted Image the back!

All made with the help of these.....Emma bridgewater tea cloth! Posted Image

I will post some photo's on the What a Doll thread of what Lulu has been doing this Christmas for her Mum...the 2011 Christmas Cake is revealed

Congratulations on your grades Galfriend, good luck for your further studies.

Swannie, it's a not easy to be worrying about the health of a loved one amid all the seasons festivities, but try to remain positive, your Mom is in good hands.

I am the LORD, who heals you. Exodus 15:26

Well I am nearly ready for the Silly Jolly Season! Just a few things left to wrap as wee Peri is out on a sleep over I can safely get out the wrapping paper. I need to make more mince pies and the James Martin Christmas Biscotti...Yummy! Must hurry though, Peri is returning later with the children for their sleepover here tonight.

Big hugs and Special prayers for all who need them.

Hi GALS,

I'm dropping in for a brief :wave: and shout out! I miss y'all.

My move to the new apartment is complete! Yea! And, now I'm gradually unpacking my things while I wait for AT&T to install my phone and internet connections. It seems they have a back-log of work orders for services. I feel that I'm on the bottom of their list. On Friday, it will be three weeks since I've moved in, and I have no phone or internet.

Not sure when I will actually be back online???

I hope soon.

Love to all! I'm missing everyone!

Linda

P.S. I'm sure glad Gerry is OK

P.P.S. I hope You'All have a blessed and wonderful holiday for 2011.

Hey there gang and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

It is so nice to both see everyone here (HI ANNA!!!!) and also BE here! Still teaching (as in, tomorrow the 22nd) is the last day before break.... good heavens the kiddos are FRANTIC!!!!

But other than that, I have my big huge Christmas breakfast for all current and former staff members at our school done as of this AM -- and it was a marvel.... of course the "seasoned pros" (i.e. the retirees) come earliest and stay latest and enjoy it the most.... and then sit and marvel at how few people they know that are left! Oh my goodness. And the food was AMAZING!!! to be followed by a full day of teaching and then 2 full blown parent conferences. Good heavens I am exhausted....

But hugs and kisses to all of you. Just love you all to bits. Headed down to Santa Cruz area Friday - where I was born and where my folks are. I plan to go snooping around and see if there is going to be any more filming --- just to take a really great drive.... and be out and about in some beautiful weather in in CA ---- but man, we do need the rain too!

Love ya all.... and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Jill

Anna, those pillows are gorgeous! I wish I could make things like that, but I'm hopeless at sewing and basically all arts and crafts. :doh:

BJ, I sure wish we had snow here. We've got rain instead! :(

Hugs to all!

Me too! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! http://www.gerardbutlergals.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/smiley-tree.gif

We spent Christmas day with my sister and her family. Had great food and family time. We didn't leave their house last night until almost midnight. Luckily, we just live about 3 blocks away from each other.

:wave: everyone! Just got home from the orthopedic doctor's office. I had a consultation for treatment of my hand. For the past couple of months my ring finger on my right hand has been locking up in the flexed position, a condition known as "trigger finger." The doctor said 50% respond to a steroid injection, the other 50% require surgery. Anyway, he gave me the shot. It hurt like h*ll! I couldn't keep from crying out. I vaguely remember saying "shite" without the "e". ;) I asked Bill if I dropped the f-bomb and he says I didn't. Anyway, now, it's a waiting game to see if the shot worked. I go back on the 23rd. If it didn't work, we'll be scheduling surgery. Other than that, everything here has been fine. :p

Sue-love the pictures of the boys! :)

Hugs to all!

Thanks Elissa and Suzie.....

Elissa, I can certainly empathize with you sweetie. I got a cortisone shot yesterday in my foot and yup that d*mn needle doesn't feel real good! Surgery for me will definitely be the absolute last option. I met with my new foot doctor yesterday and I love her!!! Young and aggressive and really sweet. She said that if the cortisone shot doesn't help the neuroma than there is another option which will include weekly injections for 9 weeks that will actually destroy the nerve between my toes and make my life a whole lot sweeter. I really want to start walking again and until this is taken care of that it just not an option. Any more than 15-30 minutes on my feet and I'm hurting....hell, it's hard getting old! lol

I have my B2 for the week so yesterday I got out the camera and tried to capture my sweetheart's personality (which is NOT easy cause he hates having his picture taken...lol...just like his grandma):

Well, like I said I have B2 for the week....he got me up at 3 am this morning.....:bonk: ...it's now going on 7 and he's back asleep and I'm wide awake....but I think I'm going to go lay down and see if I can catch a little more zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz .

hugs to all.

love,

Sue

Sue, B2 is a doll! :wuv: I hope your treatments for your foot work for you. Erin has neuromas on both feet and has had steroid shots as well. She said they helped a lot, but every once in a while, the neuromas flare up. Unfortunately, in my case, my steroid shot yesterday didn't work. The stupid finger locked up twice today while I was tying my shoes. The doctor said as bad as mine was, the shot probably wouldn't work, but I guess he had to try it before surgery to make my insurance company happy.

Jobella, belated congratulations on becoming a nurse! :D

Hugs to all! :)

Ladies, I posted a message to Gerry here: http://www.gerardbutlergals.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=38819&pid=1485488&st=0entry1485488 Hope you will all stop by and read it. Meanwhile, I'm up and unable to sleep. Bill has an appt with an Alzheimer's specialist this morning.

Hi all. Quick update on Cat.

Some may know that in June 2010, hubby and I retired to the South Coast of New South Wales, a little paradise in Oz. Built a lovely house with pool and took our two Jack Russell crosses (names appropriately Jack and Russell) and went to live an idyllic life. What you don't know is that our taxation office had a few things to say about investiments and how our accountants at the time dealt with them. So a huge tax bill ensued. So in November I went back to work. I took a short term contract which has turned out much longer as I work as an IT project manager and you all know about how IT always takes longer than initially thought.

Now I travel 160kms each Monday morning (up and away by 6.10am) to work in Canberra, stay with my daughter and head back home to hubby and doggies on Friday *sigh*. Only till June and then hopefully we will have dealt with the tax office YAY!

I had hoped that this would be the year I could come to Vegas again. I've been trying every year since the original one and I love reading all about it while it happens and after. So.... maybe next year (now all cross fingers, toes etc and wish me luck on that one).

Good to see so many lovey faces here. I recently had an opportunity to show friends my Gerry gallery on my laptop. Some knew of him from 300. So I suggested they see LAC and now they are all asking which other movies they should get. So, still working on his behalf. At the same time they got to see my photo's from the 2006 conference. They all loved the photo's that showed Gerry with Mousie, Mel and Swannie. It reminded me it's been far too long since I regularly posted.

That said I think of you guys often. With Gerry going from strength to strength it's lovely to know we knew long before anyone else did LOL.

OK, time to get back to it.

Hugs to all

Cat
