Obsessed with these..

On a night I can sit for hours watching these video's on Facebook.  Love that they are using very short and all are so varied.

The one I watched the most was Gogglebox Fanpage  You can also watch them on Youtube here


 I also love Drew Binsky and all his videos on travelling all over the world, you can see them here on Facebook and here on Youtube Videos.  The following video is in Lebanon:


There are many more; that I will share with you over the next few weeks.

Today's Christmas song is an updated Christmas carol:

It's the little things..........

At our last house our sofa was placed in the middle of the living room, and so my dh installed receptacles in the floor.  We have a similar layout in this house with the sofa, so again dh installed receptacles in the floor.

This may seem like a minor thing, but it makes such a difference, as now we can have table lamps on our end table's either side of the sofa.  There are two sockets in each receptacle and dh chose a brass finish but they do come in different finishes.

So the next plan of action was to find a couple of lamps for the end tables.  I didn't want to spend a small fortune, but do have to say I have expensive tastes and all the ones I liked we $200+ each.  Then there were many I liked but the shade wasn't right, or the base wasn't right, so after exhausting many options I finally found what I liked at Home Depot of all places.

This lamp comes in separate pieces, so you buy the base and the shade separately.

 The shade has a quilted look to me, or even fish scales.  It's an off white colour, but more white than ivory which is what a wanted and best of all it was only $25, you can see it here.
 The base is a metal one and I like how it isn't solid so doesn't look to heavy and clunky and  it was only $40, and you can see that here.
 They are a decent height and I am so pleased with them and they didn't break the bank.
We have bought a new sofa and our daughter took the old one on the weekend, and the new one doesn't come until Thursday so I will show it too you then. The living room is looking a bit strange without the sofa....

Today's Christmas music a classic song from my teens:

Has anyone been to see these guys in concert?



They come to Toronto most years and I have never been to the concert.  One of these days I will get tickets and go, I think it would be worth while.

The other day I was humming a Christmas carol and you know what I couldn't remember all the words to it.  That made me sad, as I have always remembered the words to Christmas carols.😞

Saturday's show..........

It was a super show, with a great turn out.  Only one negative Nelly, who thought she could buy the same things I was selling at the dollar store..........go ahead then!!  Anyhow here is a photo taken of me by the local radio station:


Do you see who is looking over me?  My table was by the Queen.  For those of you who have been following my blog for a while, remember I have a decal of the queen on my car? See this post   She was my good luck charm on Saturday.

This show made up for all the other shows, and I had a good time and sold a lot.  I now have to regroup and plan out what to do next.  One thing about these shows though is you never know what will sell from one show to the next.  My biggest sellers so far had been the soup bowl cozies, but this show it was the produce bags.  

As the weather is going to be nasty today I think I will have a pajama day and just take it easy.  These shows are tiring but as I said productive.

Oh and as It's December 1st, let's play lots of Christmas music:

"Bloody" pain..........

Went to have blood work done this morning, had an 8:30 am appointment.  Got in right away and it was the nurse who had tried to take blood from me last time.  She had so much trouble last time she had to get someone else to do it and they managed to get blood from me right away.

I mentioned this too her, saying you had trouble last time, but decided to give her another chance, plus I drank more water than I did the time before.  Anyhow, she tried my right arm with no luck, then tried my left arm with no luck, so back to my right arm this time using a child's needle and managed to get some blood flowing.

However, the pain was awful, I mean bloody awful, you would have thought she was jabbing the needle in harder and twisting it around.  It got to the point I couldn't stand it anymore and said enough.  She had one vial full, but the other was only maybe a quarter full if that.  I told her at this point she had to get someone else, as no way was she touching me again.

I broke out in a total body sweat; like a hot flash on steroids.  I was nauseous and did not feel well at all.  Another nurse came and took blood from me no issue............meanwhile my right arm looks like this:

It is so sore; I am not happy. Told the second nurse that in future I will be asking her to draw blood.................
