AIM Advent Calender... Why I'm Late



OK, I know I'm late! I Should have written this post yesterday, but I have a good excuse. I had a Hospital appointment and then I braved the Shops and got a few more bits and pieces for Christmas and by the time I got home I was cream crackered. Although this year has been easier, I've done 90% of my shopping on line and as my "Boys", are older now, there's not that endless going from shop to shop, trying to get that must have Toy for Father Christmas to bring. Remember "The Furby's", then it was the Toy Story Toys the first time round, oh and then the Wii. Why is it that the Elves never seem to make enough?.
"Braved the shops", I hear you cry, "In this Weather, she must be mad". Well although it's bitterly Cold here and we have penetrating Frost making everything White, with temperatures that haven't got out of the minus, it hit minus 18 in a certain part of Wales on Sunday, we haven't got any Snow, not one little flake! Harry is disgusted, as are his friends, who all thought they were going to get some time off School, to play silly buggers in the Snow..
Anyway, back to the matter in hand and why this post is late. Artisans In Miniature's Advent Calender went live yesterday. With the first Door being unlocked, to reveal the first miniature project. If you pop over each day, to the AIM Site and look behind the relevant Door, there will be yet another Miniature project to enjoy..

Lovely pictures of your ponies Debbie! And what a view!

Hey, you don't have to apologize for being late... ;O) I hope everything went well in hospital and thank you for teaching me a new expression: "Braved the shops" - I'll keep that in mind. If you like, send Harry over to us which is near to the Baltic Sea, we've got a real snow chaos around here and I'm telling you my little secret: I don't want to shovel snow anymore!!! (LOL)

Greetings

I hope the hospital appointment went okay! Good to see that you've almost done all your Crimbo shopping too! I have my parents to buy for then that's it.

I'm sure there are loads of peeps in the UK who would be more than willing to part with their snow...we've had over foot altogether and hardly anything is moving. No work for me, so I bought some mini supplies online instead! :o)) Too bad the summer house is out of bounds. :o((

Stay warm and safe!
