Sunshine in my shadows

Welcome to sunshine in my shadows. This blog is my space to share all the stuff that makes up my every day life. Family, friends, crafts, recipes, books and all the little things that add 'sunshine to my shadows'. We all have a sprinkling of sunshine and an equal sprinkling of shadows in our lives. Hopefully you will find more sunshine than shadows to read about here and on the days when shadows fall, know that the sunshine is peeking just around the corner!

Are you counting?

It's only 11 more sleeps till Christmas Day! Usually I have finished buying gifts by now but this year I am behind schedule. Unfortunately this means a dash into town, probably next week to try to buy the kids gifts all in one days shopping trip. I am not looking forward to battling for a car park, queues in the stores. I love Christmas and I love people, just not when I am shopping!

I have all the stocking fillers and only have a couple of gifts to buy so I guess that isn't so bad.
Are you feeling the excitement build at your place as the number of days till the big day slowly decreases?
Next week will see me baking, finishing shopping and then hopefully relaxing and enjoying the special ambience that Christmas brings.

wishing you sunshine in your shadows

This is an adorable advent truck I picked up on ebay. It has little drawers on both sides to pop small treats in.


  1. I am definitely counting Helen - but it seems that's all I'm doing - lots to do and just not getting round to doing it. lol
    I keep procrastinating - but it has to stop.

    Love and hugs,
    Linda. xxx
