Candyfloss and Christmas

Hello lovely Blogland people who come and visit Jumble and Jelly to see what we've been up to.

My daily activity posts, or any posts for that matter, have ground to a halt.

Life has thrown us a bit of a difficult situation and my time and energy have needed to have been concentrated elsewhere.

The last day I managed was Candyfloss Day on 7th December.
Although I love eating candy floss I thought using this shower gel would be a fun and slightly different way to mark the day.

Going back to my absence, I know I have mentioned once or twice in fairly recent posts the fact that S has been having a few issues.
Things have come to a bit of a head this past week.
My birthday year activities were dropped without a second though.
Christmas planning has taken a back seat.
A fair amount of other stuff has also had to fall by the wayside.

Due to all of this I need to take a break from blogging.
I don't know how long I will be away for. I sincerely hope it won't be for long but who can tell.
S is ok, we just need to hunker down and weather out this spell together.

I would like to think I'd be able to visit all my bloggy friends and leave you all Happy Christmas messages but I need to be realistic and I am pretty sure that that is not really going to happen.
So please help yourself to a biscuit from this sweet little mitten shaped dish (both advent presents from my sister!) as little festive treat from me to you.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018.


  1. Candyfloss shower gel, what fun. Of course blogging must take a back seat, family always comes first. Sending lots of love to you all xx

  2. Hope you are all OK and have a Happy and healthy Christmas x

  3. I'm sorry a tricky situation has cropped up. Sincerely, I'm truly sorry. I hope it is sorted quickly and life can carry one smoothly. Shall miss you while you away, but it's the right thing to do. Family first.

    Much love to you, I hope you and your family can have a very happy Christmas. And a good and positive start to 2018. xx

  4. Oh Lisa, I'm sorry that your world has turned a bit upside down just now, but you are right to want to give all your time to your family and though I will miss your funny and fascinating posts, as a mum I understand. Hope you all manage to enjoy Christmas and that things improve for S. All the best for 2018 and I hope we hear from you soon. Jenny xx
