We had my Mum drop by last night with our presents for under the tree....plus delicious home-made mince pies + some Lebkuchen (my favourite!)....she's the best!
Mum loved her new lightbox which I'd made a few weeks ago. We've discussed on many occasions how handy it would be to have one (instead of trying to trace through paper up against a window pane) so this year I set to making one with some priceless help from my clever Grandad + the local glass + wood merchants. I also made her a pouch for audiobook cds which have become an essential for the long drives she's making each week. 2 other little gifts have been saved for the proper day!
We got some wonderful goodies which I'll write about post-Christmas....as always we've been spoiled rotten by our loved ones + we are very very lucky folk :)
Last day at work for me before the holiday + this is a scarf which I made for my boss at the Post Office....I'd managed to subtley ask what colours she likes to wear + think this will really suit her. They got me some chocs + wine + let me leave a few hours early today....such lovely people to work for!
Tonight I'm wrapping up gifts for the family in Ireland. We fly tomorrow so packing the suitcase later. The fog is still bad around our neck of the woods so fingers crossed that our flight will go as planned....
I'll not be about now for a few days whilst we're off being festive....so I'll sign off with Happy Christmas Wishes to everyone reading! Eat, drink + be merry! xxx Kelly.
