Did you all have a lovely Christmas?

I hope you all had a lovely festive season with your families and loved ones and peace, love and happiness were in abundance in your home.

The snow hung about allowing us to have a white Christmas. Lots of lovely roaring fires to keep us warm and cosy, plenty to eat and drink (non boozy stuff). DD, her partner and DS were here for their dinner on the big day and DD and partner came again for tea on Boxing Day, so a somewhat quiet time for DH and i but very enjoyable. I'm still recovering but getting a little better each day, thank you for your good wishes.

I was thoroughly spoilt by family and friends and received lots of wonderful gifts.

Thank you to Clare, Karen, Karan, Barb, Angi(no blog) and Kathy(no blog), these are the lovely gifts i received from these wonderful ladies ...

and here are some of the gifts i made and sent out ...

Yesterday DH took me into town for our Christmas walk to see the illuminated streets, the council take all the deocorations down before the New Year revellers are in the town hall square so they dont get damaged. We did take some pics, i just need to upload them onto here and then i can share with you. This years theme was 12 Days of Christmas and Narnia, they looked wonderful and i'm so pleased that i didn't miss them this year.

Happy Blogoversary!!!
Today is my 4th blogoversary, i can't believe i've been chatting away on here for that long, where does the time go to. With this in mind, i thought i had better have a draw, so if you would like to receive something handmade by me please say so in your comment and i'll give some thought to what i can rustle up for the winner. I'll leave the draw open for a week before i draw a name to give busy folks a chance to enter.

Love and {hugs}

Edited to say - i have no idea why the slideshows work fine in the preview but after upload you have to click screen to see the pics, sorry
