So, here we are in a new year and a new decade. The last 10 days have been a blur of activity and excitement, with not only Christmas but birthdays, visitors from Australia, a New Year's Eve party, plus untold amounts of cooking, eating and generally being merry!
This is the first time I have been able to sit down with my laptop and write a post, although I have been dipping in and out of Blogland to see what's been going on - mainly late at night on my iPhone, in bed with my now habitual cup of Ovaltine... must be getting old...
All my handmade presents went down a storm and I even managed to fit a couple of last minute fabric-y gifts in for the ladies: some cafetiere cosies and some quilted coasters. Oh, and a pear pin cushion!
All my cooking went without a hitch - I loved every minute of it in my hot, busy kitchen.
Here's a mosaic I made of the best bits:
These are the flowers I took for my darling boy - the deepest of red roses, pink anemones and mistletoe for Christmas kisses:
This always goes down a treat in our house at Christmas:
And best of all, I have a shiny new toy in my kitchen!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and thank you for all your lovely comments and encouragement. I love being part of this fab community - it fills me with inspiration, friendship and fun.
