|Yummy Christmas day breakfast.|
It went as quickly as it came! our Christmas was very subdued this year as five of the six people living here have managed to catch the winter flu virus! Christmas day was spent at my younger brothers house with his family and another of my younger brothers family. They both have young children so its great to be around them all at this time of year. My brother and his wife made us a beautiful dinner and we were totally spoilt so a big thanks to them!
My poor DH sat in the corner in his PJ's and dressing gown. Bless him he was too poorly to even get dressed and is still in bed now!
As for Christmas pressies? Well i was totally stunned! I had vouchers off No 1 son and his girlfriend (to put towards a new food mixer i have been longing for. A beautiful cake stand and pasta bowls from DH, perfume off No 3 son and chocolate from princess and no 2 son and girlfriend! I was really blessed.
One of my favourite presents was from my mother. she knitted me a mini stocking filled with smellies
thanks mum! its very rare I get a handmade gift so I was very pleased to receive this.
I also got to give mother the lap rug i had made for her. i crochet red and black stripes, lined with a black fleece and added pockets. The pockets are to hold her remote control glasses and choccies when she is watching TV. She lives right out in the country and it gets cold in the evenings so I'm hoping that it will help keep her warm and cosy!
