Cards and Presents
On Christmas Day there was a mystery present!
It arrived a couple of days before Christmas and was obviously a book so I assumed it was something from my Amazon wish list from one of the family who had sent it direct in case it was late, so I didn't open until Christmas morning. But it wasn't from my wish list - it was a book mentioned on the Monday of the week by Jennie on her blog........... Alison Uttley's Country Things.
Lots of other lovely gifts too, I'm a very lucky woman.
Picture frame, shortbread,chocs, writing paper, nest box, craft bits and that's a bar of chocolate wishing me Happy Christmas in Gaelic! With my new Pinking Shears I'll finally be able to cut the material to make the wax food wraps and two penfriends knitted me finger-less gloves/wrist warmers - how's that for coincidence! BiL made me a this........
All my cards are beautiful.
A sleigh all the way from Canada, 3 robins and from EG's primary school, designed by EG herself (poor parents are now expected to buy cards and mugs as well as the usual School photo!)
And there were Christmas trees,baubles and snowy villages too.
The Surrey family are coming up to Suffolk today and will be here for the day tomorrow along with the rest of the family - it will be a squash for 12, but we will squeeze in!
Wish me luck cooking for us all, I don't do many big meals nowadays - so have had to write a time table..............haven't done that for years.
I'll be a bit busy for a couple of days, so will be back Friday with the Review of the Year in Photos.
