Well... it's the last day of 2014.

It's been a horror year for air travellers, with the loss of MH370, TransAsia Flight 222, Air Algerie Flight 5017 and the latest, AirAsia QZ8501, and of course all the other smaller flights that came to an untimely end with the loss of lives.

But, according to statistics, it's still far safer to fly than drive!  Apparently 1.24 MILLION people died on the roads this year.  That's HUGE.

I hope 2015 is a better year, and the stats go DOWN on both flights lost and lives lost on the roads.

On a happier note... IT'S NEW YEAR'S EVE!  Do you have any plans?  We don't.  We are boring old farts who actually like to stay home!
We are a bit weird like that.
This year we have Miss Muppet and Dante to think of too... so probably a normal evening.

Today's plans?   Stay home, potter around.  I might read some blogs, catch up on a few of me favourite people.  *smiles*

And of course, spend time with Keera, the kids and Stew.  Might even lie in the sun again, it's quite nice to see some colour in me cheeks.

ABOVE: Little Miss last night, completely zonked out in her Granddad's chair.  See the spot on her forehead?  She scratched an itchy bite.... and before she went to bed last night the little bugger picked off the scab and made it bleed all over again.  *sigh*
I hope she doesn't make a mess of her face!
I might have to put a plaster over it so she leaves it alone.

Grrrr... kids.  Griffin is the same, picks everything and makes a darn mess of himself.  He's covered in poxy little scars.

Russell was the same as a kid too.  

Right, I better go and see what's happening around here...


Well... we haven't done much at all today.  I've caught up on some blog reading, had me lunch and now we are going to Spotlight so I can get some more of that Calico at the sale price.  Yaaa.... I love a bargin.

ABOVE:  Well I got the calico, and some more wool for felting and some velvet too.  My blog friend Jackie inspires me.  (  She does the most gorgeous things with felt and fabric and stitchery.

ABOVE:  Griffin was sitting out on his basketball, so Dante went and got his out of the bedroom and sat on it... then Keera found a ball and did the same.  So cute.  Kids sure learn by imitation.

Right now it's really QUIET.  Stew, Brylee and Griffin are out at the mall and Dante and Keera are asleep.  It's bliss. 
I'm going down to my 'sewing room' to fluff around a bit.  (fluff around means : just potter, do a bit of this 'n' that)

End of Day: I got some sewing done!  I made 4 mug rugs and will show you tomorrow, they are very cute.
11 pm, looks like we might just see the New Year in after all!  Stew's having a few quiet drinks, but not me.  I'm perfectly happy to stay sober.  
Have a great evening if you are still up.
