It has been a busy time here, with my DH celebrating his birthday. We all enjoyed it as a family, and the bonus of a birthday on a Saturday is that with very little excuse it can turn into a Birthday weekend!
He was delighted with all his presents, and enjoyed a trip to the garden centre for a toasted sandwich and coffee.
We saw lots of lovely Christmas treats
"I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel".
We were quite impressed by this fine fellow
Well, I cooked DH his very favourite meal, a dish from the Causcaus mountains called Galnesh - here it is in its "waiting to be cooked" stage...
And of course there was cake
We always like to celebrate as a whole family, so everyone gets to enjoy the fun.
Its beginning to feel a bit more festive, we have started watching festive films - Elf was duly viewed at the weekend, with Christmas with the Kranks viewed this evening. We have Home Alone 1&2, Jingle all the Way and Muppets Christmas Carol to look forward to. And Im going to start my annual reading of Christmas Carol soon - Im a big Charles Dickens fan and have read Christmas Carol every Christmas since I was 8 years old.
Well, hopefully will be back soon to show you how spoiled I have been by my Christmas Swap Partners!
