What a week

Last week was a very busy time for me.....  family BBQ on Saturday 7th, Birthday on  Monday 9th, Tuesday Devon Pixies with the girls.

Oooops no photos of the BBQ, forgot.

Corinne gave me this most wonderful gift..... 
Old Country Roses bauble, my favourite pattern.

Gavan gave me a beautiful bracelet.... its more lovely than this photo shows.

This cute little carriage was from Heather and June.

                                            Then a rest with a coffee and biscuit.

Wednesday was our Tenpin Bowling Christmas Party, no photos there either.

 Wednesday evening June, Corinne and me went to  QPAC  and here we are waiting for the show to start.... it was  fantastic, so glad we were able to see it.

Yesterday we had a lovely lunch with friends at Waterford and then home for a rest with coffee and cake.

Well it was a very busy week and it makes me feel tired just thinking about it but in the nicest possible way of course.....
Thanks to everyone who made this week so special.

 These are the gifts I sent to Dzintra for the 6 Item Swap organised by Maree.

Something for the Christmas tree and something to eat.

                             Something for the sewing room.

                               Something to read and something smelly.

 There is also something for under the tree so I'll show that after Christmas.

 I was working on a Christmas gift today but can't show photos yet.
