Some Christmas Gifts .....




Hey ...... I`m back !! ;o)
So how many of you are fed up of eating and drinking then ?? I know i am .
My stomach feels like i`m 7 months pregnant , and i cannot face another alcoholic drink for a while !
We had a nice quiet Christmas day , my partner and i . We opened some presents in bed , like we normally do , then downstairs for the rest !!
I made prawn cocktail , grilled rump steak , salad , homemade potato salad , and of course Christmas pudding and brandy cream ! It was a turkey free day for us ! We have turkey for New Years day ! ....
We`ve then been visiting relatives , and had some over yesterday . So it`s back to some sort of " normal " life today .


I thought i would share some of my gifts with you all .....


A burning cinnamon tea - light , from Sherry .......







A massive box with my favourite chocolates in ! Ok , i LOVE these chocolates .... But .... What came in my mind first may you be asking ?? Fantastic ! I can reuse this box ! It`s so beautiful !! I was more interested in the box , than the contents , i`m sorry to admit to you all . . I know i shouldn`t have , and some of you will no doubt be laughing at me .... But i am thinking ahead !! ;o)











Some crafty things .... Of course ! ........





Assorted metallic papers .....





Bird paper from Basic grey .....







And lastly ... A pair of white / yellow gold hoop ear rings ....








There was also wine , chocolates , money and a years subscription to ....... Somerset Studio and Cloth , Paper , Scissors magazines !! Whoo Hoo !! ;o) I am just so happy to be getting those in the post !

I hope you all had a peaceful , blessed Christmas , and that everyone got at least one gift that you treasure the most , whether it is a material one or just friendship . I feel so lucky to have found new friends on here .... ......
Thank- you

You were a very good girl this year Carolyn!!! Love all the crafty things and the earrings are gorgeous. Of course that box will be used after the chocolates have been eaten...it's perfect for altering!!!

I know what you mean about feeling full and fat....groaning over here!!!
