Hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to 2012.....let's face it, it can't be worse than 2011...can it?!
Apologies for my absence from blogging but Christmas did not go as planned.
I did not go away but stayed home with DH and the boy.
The boy ventured into the attic to retrieve the tree (and decorations) so the house did look fairly festive.
DH put the lights on the tree and was responsible for the "fairy" on top....
..a drunken reindeer! This is actually one of Max's toys...:)
Well, it's different!!
I was naughty and opened my Secret Santa parcel long before the 25th...but I did think I'd be away...so I was allowed!
This was the lovely decorated box that my Santa (aka Virginia!) sent.
First I found this wonderful scarf......wonder how she knew I like purple?
Then a ready prepared Journal with a tin of prompts..I'll be starting on Jan 1st!
Then some handmade goodies....wonderful!!
And finally...some yummy stash in the form of stamps, rub-ons candi....oh wow!
Virginia you thoroughly spoiled me - it was such fun to open and you really know me well...thank you, thank you.
Thanks too to Carmen for organising the whole Secret Santa event - you did a brilliant job!!..
I'll be back with part 2 on Friday......the day itself and why I now have stitches in my tongue....
