Yes - shoeboxes!  lol  I love shoeboxes, they're well made and a good size; you can make them into lots of other things, use them for  storage, for posting things,  playing with, keeping seeds in - all manner of things. When I was wee I had lots of shoebox beds over the years for my dolls - woudl spend ages making blankets and tucking them in and out of them. EJ got a smart new pair of boots yesterday - and I got the box, accompnaied by a quizzical look and a 'You're weird' lol. Mens' boots come in such strong and well-sized boxes, it'll come in very handy for storing something in. Meanwhile, I shall store the box itself.

Ah well, keeps me happy :)

Winter solstice

Almost upon us now - 5.30am tomorrow morning. I will put the year past behind me and move on with renewed hope and optimism, things will improve beyond measure for me, I know, and this time next year I'll be settled and happy courtesy of the love of a good man, special friends and a positive  frame of mind to hold it all together.
Love and light to all of you who take time to read here, know that it's appreciated. May the new year be all that you want it to be
