Christmas at our house

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Our eldest Jason was home from the 18th to the 29th so our's was perfect! The day before Christmas Eve we had a lovely time over at my Mum's house with a little family get-together and the day after Boxing Day we had a lovely evening with my sister Sarah and Mark. As always far too much to eat, with some of us also having a little too much to drink! Not me of course I just quietly sip away at my Baileys...lol!

This was our first Christmas in our new home. We won't be here for next year though because hopefully we should be all settled into our new self-build at Spire Hill. Christmas 2008 will be our fourth Christmas in a row in a different house!

Before it's too late and this year comes to a close I just wanted to share a few pictures of our Christmas.



This beautiful handanger ornament was sent to me by my dear stitching friend Hilary.



Every year we have a new Christmas puzzle to do. I had a lot of trouble trying to get hold of this one this year! It's Thomas Kinkade's Village Christmas. I had seen it for sale with an Amazon market place seller, used for £25 but got lucky on Ebay and won this one, brand new and the box still sealed for £13.50 including p & p. Not a very good picture I'm afraid!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and I would like to wish you
all A Very Happy New year for 2008!
