Oh dear!

IMG_4878This gives ‘bringing the house down’ a whole new meaning! The last storm, ‘Frank’, was a storm too many for the ‘African Hut’. The roof came down and brought the crib scene with it… poor Mary, Joseph, baby and Innkeeper were rescued from underneath the debris. The sheep was also located, and I am working on ideas of how to get rid of the pink dye which has discoloured her face (too near a pink fabric bauble). As someone commented: ‘It’s not myrrh the Kings need to bring – it’s bricks!’

About apthomas

I love books, reading, writing, baking, chocolate, painting, sewing, people and fairtrade - not necessarily in that order. I am a lazy gardener - who loves the garden, and a lazy housewife who likes the place to be warm and welcoming. I live in beautiful Somerset. I am enslaved by Sherpa-the-cat. Saturday mornings find me 'playing shop' in the Honey Pot - a second hand bookshop, run from my garage, where along with the books you'll find fun, friendship and refreshments - all in a good cause.
