A Great Christmas......

Well we had a great Christmas here. Christmas day was a success, all went well. It was the first year I've hosted Christmas, and my parents and my brother and his girlfriend came to dinner. We ate, drank and made merry. Its the first proper dinner I've eaten in ages, as I haven't been very well of late, due to sickness bugs and flu, which I'm still getting over, that's why the blogging has lapsed. I got some great Christmas gifts. Hubby got me the Merlin TV series on DVD which I love and the latest enya CD, bliss.
Also from hubby was this soft and squidgy hot water bottle cover, and these cow wheatie slippers which you heat in the microwave and they contain essential oils.

This little sign was from my sister in law, very apt I thought.

Woody has been on fridge patrol guarding the turkey.

Here's a pic of the Christmas table. The dining room really did look lovely.

I've also been busy making another sheep, which was an order for a Christmas pressie. Its the towelling one.

She took a while but I was pleased with how she turned out.
So all in all a really enjoyable Christmas, drank too much and have enough chocolate to open a shop but I'm sure it will keep.
Hope you all had a good one. xxxx

Welcome back, I wondered where you had gone!! Sorry to hear you've not been well, the bugs going around at the moment are really nasty. I'm glad you like your swap gifts, I had a look at the cook book but not sure I could make anything, let me know if you do make something. I used my hot water bottle last night..... it was so cold! :) x

I am glad you had a lovely Christmas and are hopefully on the mend. I think the sheep you made is great. He looks so cuddly!
