I tried to stay awake to see Santa but I missed him again .Just look how very lucky I have been.
I had this wonderful Anni Downs book from Bluebell with other lovely things . Jill knows I'm a big fan of Anni Downs .
Another close up . Gorgeous pickles and marmalades, designer chocolates , lovely beauty shower and body gifts . I'm very fond of candles and room diffusers . I also had a gift voucher , and beautiful silk chrysanthemums .
These pretty, pretty slippers . I'm a superstitious girl so these could not be put on the table .
This morning I'm listening to radio 2 and singing along to all the songs that were around when my two boys were small . daft songs like three wheels on my wagon . my old mans a dustman and when father painted the ceiling . they don't write those kind of songs any more but so great to loudly sing along to .
I had lots of visitors yesterday . people know they are welcome to come to my home anytime . People dropping in give me great pleasure .
For making my Christmas wonderful thank you , not in order .
