Hello! I’m playing catch up this week after overcoming the gremlins I was experiencing on my website. This week’s Sunday Sevens actually spans 2 weeks. Here goes…
Sunday lunch by the water
Two weeks ago, we headed down to Queensway Quay for a family lunch. The weather was lovely, as was the food and the view!
Christmas cards I
Do you remember those little crocheted Christmas trees I made last week? They got turned into a few Christmas cards. I’m rather happy with them.
Christmas cards II
On the subject of Christmas cards, how is this for a stunner? My lovely friend V made this felted card of Helleborus (Christmas roses) for us this year.
I do love this building, sometimes it jumps out at me, and other times I walk past and forget it’s there. Those blue and white tiles make a bold statement and I love it!
On Sunday evening, I went to the wonderful St Andrews Church Carol Service. It features readings from various Gibraltarian dignitaries and the music is supplied by the Gibraltar Regiment Band. It’s recorded by Radio Gibraltar and gets played out over Christmas.
On my way home I got to see Gibraltar’s Christmas lights at their best, with the streets empty of traffic and folk!
Blowing the cobwebs away
So the scales are telling me that I need to take a bit of action before the Christmas feasting begins… I dusted off the trainers and went out for a bit of a run a couple of times this week. I use the term ‘run’ in its loosest form but I tried. The view was lovely from my point of view, not sure anyone who was witness to my lumbering along beside the sea would agree though!
Last dressmaking class of 2019
Sewing is finished officially as of this week as far as my dressmaking classes are concerned. I shall miss my weekly classes while Christmas happens but in a way it’s nice to see the diary starting to thin out! I’m rather pleased with my seams by the way…
I got to go to two carol services this week. They were beautiful, and so lovely to step out of the chaos of the Christmas build up and take a moment. The photo above was taken in the beautiful Sacred Heart Church.
So I guess it’s happening then… Boris got in and we are about to wave goodbye to our wonderful EU membership. I’m beyond sad/angry/bewildered about how this has come about. I like most of Gibraltar (96%) voted to Remain. I can only hope that this booklet produced by the Gibraltar Government won’t be needed.
I refuse to end this Sunday Sevens on such a downer, so here’s a view of the Rock and some of the gazillion seagulls who live here which I took on my walk this morning!
I hope it’s been a good week for you l, where ever you are and that the next seven days brings you good things.
