This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~Christmas 2015~



Thought I would open up this post with a pic of JoJo's cakes that Mr Armchair helped her make last week
Top left (the green one) is a Christmas Tree
Under that (the red one) is a Christmas stocking
and bottom right one of my Instagram friends spotted a blue sewing machine!!!!
In the centre I can see a red coffee percolator.

Here it is Christmas Eve 2015
Wherever did 2015 go........the years just seem to be flying by
We have just had an overnight visit from our Son
Our 2nd Daughter is here at the moment with her 2 children/our grandchildren
Spirits are high and all is well in our World


JoJo decorated the tree and this is the result
She spent such a long time at it and I just filled in the gaps
Well done JoJo


My Fruit and Nut Cake ready to go in to the oven


And my latest favourite collector item.........little reindeer, how cute are they!!!

(My internet/computer time is getting less and less as I am still plagued with these headaches.  Thank you everyone for your visits and lovely comments throughout the year.....You are all the best!)

If I don't get around to seeing everybody I wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Joyous and Prosperous New Year
Have a beautiful Christmas Day with your Loved Ones

Jojo has made a wonderful job of the cakes, I'm sure they were delicious. I have a small collection of reindeer too, they are irresistible. I want to keep mine out all year! Wishing you all a happy Christmas Day.

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
