The 2nd half of this shopping SSS day.
Once we puchased most of our pressies we had an extra job for us to do after lunch.
|This is my lunch every week with my name Pauline the Scott|
|We watched the video.|
|Tom the Chairman informed us about the X-Mas Shoe Boxes.|
|OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD|
After the shopping and lunch it was time for the Christmas Shoe Boxes.
We had to Christmas decorate the shoe box and fill it up with presents and sticker it "For a Boy or a Girl".
These boxes will travel abroad with the Refugee Volunteers all over the world.
It's nice to wish a Merry Christmas to others who recieve nothing at this time of year.
I'm so happy that I can see the happiness that these children go through whatever trauma is happening around them all.
From Us; A shoebox is a small gift out of our time, energy, and pennies for the toys.
From Them; Happiness in return.
|Showing off his gifts with a smile,|
|Toys for the Shoe Boxes|
|The Refugee Volunteer enjoying the happiness.|
|Everyone got busy for the Shoe Box Gift Jobs.|
|Decorating my box.|
|Tom the Chairman tells us a story|
A busy day for us all.
|Katies Cakes with Katie and Zoe, another inside shop stall.|
|Katie on my right and Zoe on my left, Me and cakes............... again!|
It was on the telly this morning with twins who have gone into medecine.
They done some actual physical work for us to see on the telly where you had to close your eyes and guess what food was placed on your tongue.
Neither of them worked out what was placed on their tongue, maybe my nerves are crossed in the brain and as far as I know "I eat nothing Bad!" How silly is that,......but truthful to me!
"Did I have a cake or biscuit today......?" I say NO but I really mean YES!
My brain seems to be going through A DENIAL............SHIT!
I'm about a pound below 14 stone.......Shit, crap, bugger! When will it all come together properly........!
|This is smiling Jake, Katies son and he made me smile too.|
This is my SURPRISE TODAY.
I usually use my camera for pictures; very rarely do I run out of battery UNTIL...........
I found the last of my Shoe Box pictures and a couple of more pictures on the phone .....so here I go.
Great moving pictures;
The 5km Walk around Rother Valley Park for NEUROCARE CHARITY in April then...
Then CIRCLE OF TWO with bambolino and dodo...... www.circleoftwo.com in August
Then....the gift to Kefae Francis after my trip to see Mr Patel in Hallamshire Hospital in August.
This was the Abseiling in June.
Then the SUN followed me everywhere; pretty cool actually in August
After all the moving pictures which has astounded me....
Now I walked by The Town Hall, the big white house.
I saw the red poppies and moved closer for a look at them.
It's a nice time to remember all who have gone.
I got down on my knees as I couldn't read the cards so far away.
It's nice to know that they are all still remembered.
I tried to get up; but I couldn't.
A lady came quickly over to me and asked if she could help me up on my feet then she added a "please".
What a lovely lady.
She's Menha from Jamacia and works in the Stroke Department in Chesterfield Hospital.
Thankyou for your kindness towards me.
ThanX Beautiful Lady. XXX
Now back to date on The Shoe Box Gift;
That's the last part of my day with a few surprises in between.
Later that day I went to my Creative Writing Class with another surprise it was Emma Pass.
Emma Pass is an Author who has written "ACID"
|Author Emma Pass|
|Author Emma Pass & Writing Tutor Andrew Stuart|
|Questions & Answers in the room|
|Creative Writing Group|
|Tutor Andrew gave us knowledge about writing|
I was so surprised with Emma that she kept hold of all the pieces that she has ever written before.
Do you know that she has kept everything that she has written from as far as Primary School.
That is the love for words that she has which she allowed us to see that night.
That was so precious for us all to be part of her life and see into her youth when she started writing.
Could I go as far back as Primary or High School........Not me!
Could I use my imagination and write a fantasy story of any kind......Not me again.
|Reading from Acid|
|Reading earlier writings|
|Speaking about writing and publishing|
|I told her she inspired people to write and that she kept all her writings too.|
|Doing the signature.|
|WoW....Emma signed my book.......WoWseR|
|We went for a cuppa, a chat and a giggle....ThanX Emma Pass|

|Emma Pass signature|
I always had pen-pals years and years ago,
When I finished my letter to my pen-pal in Germany I always signed my name and left 3 X's
That's just stuck in my head from yonks ago.
This is my 2nd signature with XXX, am I a groupie of Authors......?
Why do I ask for 3 X's.....any reason?
I don't know......Do U?
Normally I would tell you what this story is all about, but you know me and stories, I may start at the end, miss the middle and end on the start.
I bought my copy and I'll enjoy it.
I'll enjoy every single page with the words.
ThanX Emma Pass
The next book is out next year, can't wait.
They stole her life and she wants it back...........................Hmmmm!
