50th Wedding Anniversary and FIS excitement

My goodness how time flies, 50 years ago today Gavan and I got married..... seems like only yesterday really...... I could be naughty and say " I wouldn't have got that long for murder" but I won't LOL..... its just as well Gavan knows me so well and would expect me to say such a thing.......

 No wonder our photos are looking so aged..... a bit like us I guess.








They have been great years together and hopefully many more to come.

I received a parcel yesterday from Jo in Tassie for our "Friends in Stitching" online group... its our Christmas swap and poor Jo has been in a bit of a panic as Aussie post was late with her parcel but all is good now.

Thanks so very much Jo..... I told you not to worry.


                                            5 parcels spelling the word "Santa" 



1 for under the tree.


S for Santa and you were spot on with this one Jo..... love my tree ornies



A for Antler and I'm sure you will be able to guess that this cute button will become a tree      ornie too.



Thanks again Jo.... I can't wait to open the next gift which is N for Nativity.

I won a beautiful cake from Devon Pixies where we have our High Teas and I'm picking it up at 12 noon today, just in time to celebrate our Anniversary..... I will show a photo tomorrow.

                                                              This is all so exciting.....
