All Jumping Ship

Hi everyone,

I`m so happy that I`m not alone here in BlogWorld. It`s great that so many of you are either here already or on your way over. Better to leave JLand before it leaves us! I`m starting to get used to this format, I won`t say I like it yet but I am trying to. Of course there is no going back and if I want a journal I will have to stay so stay I will.

It`s been a real cold day today with a biting wind that has been bringing the leaves down from the trees. At work colleagues have been clearing the leaves but no sooner have they done it than another gust of wind brings even more of them down. It`s not as though they can be left until later either because the garden centre has to be kept clear for customers so it`s an ongoing task for the outside staff.

Jim bought Roman`s Christmas present today and we`ve hidden it away in the loft until a couple of weeks before. I know it`s early but we want to get presents out of the way so we don`t have to rush around at the last minute. It bizarre isn`t it, talking about Christmas on the first day of!

Yesterday we heard that our nephew Robert ( Jim`s youngest sister`s son)has asked his long time girlfriend Rachel to marry him and she accepted. They are such a lovely couple and so much in love and deserve all the happiness life has to offer. I am thrilled for them both.

Anyway my friends, I shall say goodnight and hope that you all have a lovely evening. Take care. :o)

  5. Sorry I haven't been by your JLand Journal, but I sent you an email (I think..I must check. LOL ) I did. LOL. I just did a quick update. I hope we are able to move our JLand journals. If we have to start over I guess we do
    No, not so funny to be getting Christmas shopping done. Having been laid up awhile after surgery, my credit card, laptop, and QVC, got quite the work out. LOL Give my love to Jim, Roman and all your beautiful family. I hope to be by sooner.
    Hugs, Barb
