12 Tags of Christmas 2010 - Brief Interlude!

Sorry folks but for the rest of the 12 tags of Christmas I'm going to be AWOL!
Don't all shout at me at once!!!!!! ;)
Bad timing I know but you see I'm probably stuck on a train station as you read this on the way to visit friends.
It has been planned for some time 's my birthday and I could not face the thought of being at home this year :(
It's always been a special time of year having a December birthday..but all things must change.
(For those of you new here through the 12 husband passed away in May and I am still going through major readjustments in my life)

I'm sure you will continue to use this link to visit all the tags being posted in my absence and I will still be popping along to leave those comments....I am so thrilled to see everything that is being created......Internet connection willing of course ;)

Oh! Just an aside...........this has proved to be much bigger than I ever thought....although to be honest I did not think about it at all! I only wanted to make it easier for myself to hop around! LOL
....dill weed me....did not think there would be all these people wanting to do the same!
.....I WILL comment on each and every one.....eventually! I'm up to 260 at the minute....I do hope I have not missed anyone....unfortunately I have an awful feeling I might! Wowser!...and even if I have to continue commenting all through my Christmas break I'll come visit you all ;)

I will be absolutely champing at the bit to finish those tags when I return and to help me and no doubt the rest of you out there that still have tags to do....I'm leaving the linky open a little longer than the 12 days and posts will be allowed up until midnight Thursday 16th GMT.
I'll ask Mr Random to choose the lucky winner of my candy then.
....sorry still not sure what exactly is in that yet...but my pile keeps growing!!
xoxo Sioux

P.S. If I can't get to an Internet connection the linky may be appearing beneath this post and a scheduled post tomorrow and Saturday......I can't seem to make it a permanent sticky unless I change the date on it every day!!! But who knows......the peculiarities of Blogger

  5. Happy Birthday Sioux and I can quite see why you don't want to be at home by yourself.
    My heart goes out to you as it must be so difficult for you at this time.
    I hope you're managing to have a lovely day anyway.
    It's very kind of you to run the splinter group and I'm astounded at the sheer number of tags this year and also very behind on comments!
    Sending hugs, Fliss xx

  11. Happy Birthday To You!!!! I am so very sorry to hear about your husband, and I know this time of year can be difficult. I saw a wonderful quote: "At Christmas, a home is filled with those who are there, and those who are not there." So true. It is so good that you will be spending time with friends - I hope you have tons of fun!!! Thank you so much for hosting this, and don't you stress about getting around to everyone - we all appreciate what you're doing for us here, and I know I for one have found some amazing blogs that are new to me. Thanks for bringing us together. This entire Splinter Group has been *even more* inspirational than Tim's site - truly! I love to see everyone's interpretations, improvisations - beautiful artwork. Hugs to you!
