Hello everyone, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and have been able to have some time for yourselves to do a little something that you love to do.
Ours was a long and full day of eating, drinking, chatting and pressie opening, we also had two extra guests who joined us for the day, they were my daughter in laws sister and niece, they were going to be alone on Christmas day….no one should be alone on Christmas day…the more the merrier I say.
The traditional Turkey lunch was eaten with gusto…then we opened the pressies before we had the pudding. My daughter in law made two extra sweets….it was all lovely and not much left over either.
My ex-hubby and his partner joined us for dinner which consisted of left overs and salads. Honestly I don’t know how we can eat constantly all day without popping……..oink, oink.
I made these little bits and bobs in the weeks leading up to the day. Karen do you recognise the eyes (buttons) Anabelle loves these buttons, she always plays with them, so now she has them forever.
I made this votive cosie for my mum and I made a purple one for my daughter in law.

Yesterday I had to be up early to take Kaila to work, (we have Boxing day sales so there are generally no car parks) she needed to be there at 8am, ooh too early the day after Christmas.
When I got back I had breakfast then cleaned the house, my friend called in and we had a coffee with Christmas cake and Gingerbread biscuits…I made the biscuits on Friday.
After she left I snuggled in and had a lovely long afternoon adding more rows to my ripple blanket……..its coming along slowly. Today I have been out cutting some ‘out of control’ bushes back from the drive way, so we can get in and out now without fear of scratching our cars. I am tired now so I think a coffee and crochet is in order.
Oh I must tell you that on Christmas day we were expecting HOT weather…….it was warm, not hot and we had torrential rain, hail (the size of golf balls) and a tornado, 100’s of house damaged, a train track almost washed away, cars floating down the roads. Thank goodness we were ok where we were, it sort of went around us…….we did get bucket loads of rain tho. I was very grateful our power didn’t go off!! Since then it has been coolish which is fine by me, I can crochet and garden in comfort.
My daugher and granddaugher had their dance concert on the 18th Dec………
Kaila, apart from working, has been rehearsing late into the nights for a ‘Brittney Spears’ tribute show on New Years eve in Adelaide, another VERY early morning trip for me to take her to the airport, then back again the next day to pick her up.
I am off to make a coffee and hunker down and enjoy some more crochet. Have a lovely day, evening, will talk again soon.
Much love to you all xoxoxox
