Party time! And Surprise!!! I have a Twin !!

Ho Ho Ho!

Thanks for popping in.

Just got home from one of the best Christmas parties ever ever!

Clarity Christmas at the Spa in Tunbridge Wells takes some beating! We had so much fun!

The inimitable Jayne worked her magic again, and games and fun were had by all…

A formidable Secret Santa game which was hilarious (to the left to the right to the right to the left and on and on )

And then, to crown it all – she found my twin!!! Even had the same dress on! Very strange !!

Honestly, you had to be there. It was special, very very special. Mum and Dad were there, and in full swing,

….and there was plenty of hilarity with Clarity – I can tell you!!Here we see our new manager Sean getting to grips with Debby…in the nicest possible way, you understand!

Hahahahaha! Look at Lucy to the left,  with the tights on her head!! Something’s afoot….

I love my Clarity Family, I so do.

Got to go and finish wrapping pressies now. The only missing piece in the jigsaw is Gracie – and she flies into Heathrow with her Mark tomorrow morning.  Can’t wait to give that girl a huge hug.

Love & hugs,

  1. Glad your Christmas party went well and everyone had a good time. Bet you won’t sleep tonight waiting for Grace to land. Enjoy your hug in the morning. XX

  2. Evening bloggy friends, busy crafting again today and doing some tidying inbetween. Really should be the other way round but hey ho! XX

  3. My gosh your twin is identical – lol! Looks and sounds like you all had a blast, and well deserved it was too! Good to see your mum and dad looking well and happy along with the rest of the Clarity (Hilarity) crew. All will be in place once Grace and Mark arrive tomorrow then it’ll definitely be time for the festivities to begin. I’m just about to make a couple of gift boxes, final bit of wrapping to do then it’s onwards and upwards to the big day. xx

  4. I hope a twin doesn’t mean double the ideas as I’ll never keep up ! Looked a great party, glad you all had a good time! Enjoy your time with your loved ones ! X

    As you say, tomorrow when Grace and her Mark arrive – things will be complete. Wishing you all a wonderful time together – cherish every moment. Love and hugs to you all, Gilly xxx

    1. Hi bloggy friends – I have really enjoyed finding Elvis each day and it will definitely be strange when it ends!
      Neill and I have been looked after very well for the last 10 days. We made our way up to Warwick (slowly) to stay with my sister and brother-in-law. They have given us so much help & support – we have both been able to let out a lot of the sadness & anxiety here. My sis has even done about 3 weeks laundry for me, bless her!
      Tomorrow we move on to Tamworth to spend Christmas with Neill’s niece & her family, plus his brother and sister-in-law. We are very fortunate to have so much love and support from our families. Love and hugs to you all, Gilly xxx

    Looks and sounds like everyone at Clarity Towers are in full swing with Christmas cheer!!
    I’m sure Gracie will arrive on time, just heard on the news that they have arrested two people in connection with the drone attacks. Let’s hope they make a good example of them and throw away the key!!!
    Here’s wishing you Big Hugs with Gracie & her Mark and a loving, joyful, exciting and peaceful Christmas holiday.

  17. What hilarity indeed! Glad you all had so much fun after a very hard working year. Two Barbaras should cut your workload in half next year!
    Poor Sean and Debbie… She is laying a purple egg and Sean has something yellow popping up between his!!! Is this Clarity’s initiation for new staff? You certainly know how to let your hair down.

  21. Looks like a great time was had by all. Today I’ve been buying locally made gifts by local artists, and imagining them all doing a happy dance that they’ve made a sale! A birthday present for me from John, and a Christmas present from my parents to me – at least I know I’ll get something that I like x
