I've actually finished my final essay for this degree module after loads of re-drafts my brain has gone into melt down and I can do no more. Its probably all rubbish but I'm past caring! We now have a break until February - which I usually don't like as I do seem to get more done in the winter- and this year I'm quite glad as I haven't been enjoying the degree much. Hopefully by February I will feel refreshed.

We had an excellent get together meal for ERTF in Chelmsford and it was nice to actually get to talk to people socially. As Chairman at our events I am usually so busy that I don't get time to enjoy them. We have a big year coming up with the forum and I hope to manage to post lots of news on my blog next year . It certainly looks like its going to be a busy one if our committee meeting last week was anything to go by. Add Material Girls exhibition work, Degree and getting some workshops sorted out for the textile teachers in Havering and it looks like I won't know if I am coming or going in 2009!
Poor Kirsty has been at home with 'the lurgy' so I have had my nursing hat on as well and as college finishes tomorrow and I seem to have drawn the short straw this year with doing all the entertaining for Christmas Day and beyond I probably won't have time to post again before Christmas so I am putting some Christmassy images on for all to enjoy. We visited Leeds castle in Kent last weekend and it was decorated for the Nutcracker, it was beautiful.

Hi Chris,
Love the Christmas Wishing Star, I'm wishing for a healthy new year. I think we'll need all our strength for the things coming up in 2009. Hope Kirsty's better soon. Have a lovely Christmas!
