It's nearly upon us. I have been wrapping presents while listening to Christmassy music and have also baked some biscuits and am now waiting for a cake to cook.
The pictures are of some quirky decorations we have had for a few years (I particularly like the angel's mad sticking out hair - like mine, first thing in the morning!).
The star I made for the top of the Christmas tree about eighteen years ago. The material was really tricky to sew, I remember, but it has lasted well. I got Mum's necklaces finished which I hope she'll like, and I also made some glittery earrings and a bracelet for me to wear tomorrow.
Chris has just gone out to the supermarket (is he mad?!) as he was getting a bit stir crazy here, and I'll need to be standing by with copious amounts of tea on his return, no doubt.
My Christmas wish is that it stops raining, to give those people affected by the awful flooding some respite from the misery - not too much to ask for, especially at Christmas, I feel.
I would also like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and happy New Year. Here's to better weather in 2013.
