Hello everyone, hope you are continuing to enjoy the festive period. I love these in-between days, relaxing, doing what-I-like-when-I-like-how-I-like!! Not too many of those opportunities present themselves to me during the year, but the time between Christmas and New Year is a time to make the most of winding down, reflecting, spending time with loved ones, and of course some crafting usually comes into it as well.
So just a few random photos captured during this period.

During these in-between days we celebrated the birthday of my Darling Mum who turned 88 years young. This cake was served in her honour:
Do you like my lovely new spotty tablecloth? Darling Mum included this in one of my presents. It really cheers up my dining room table! We rounded off the evening by watching the Italian Job on TV (the original) which she loved, especially the car chases. And of course she thought
Mr. Caine was a good bit of eye candy in his younger years! Although she has never driven a car, she loves watching motor sport, especially Formula 1, the whole family loves this sport, even DH has been converted to it (having originally said it was boring). At this point I should mention that we are all hoping that Mr. Schumacher makes a speedy and full recovery from his ski accident.
I have had time for some crafting during these in-between days, I always seem to turn to cross stitch when I have some serious relaxing time. I will share the results soon as I have nearly finished my little project, just a few last bits to do.
Well, must away as sadly I have to pop into town to run a few errands, nothing too much though. Have a great day, whatever it is you get up to!
