Tired but happy times..

Hello all i hope that you have had a great Christmas and Boxing Day..we certainly have..up early and on the go ..the girls were so excited and very happy with their gifts..they only stopped playing to have Breakfast,get dressed and then back to playing..this was good as it gave us time to get lunch ready..which was a complete success..everyone was stuffed and a good time was had by all of us.

 Here is Fern trying to get  dummy into Iris's new dolly..it wasn't happening..so she gave up.




 This Fern's Microscope..she loves it and couldn't wait to get it set up

 These are the slides that arrived in the nick of time.
 Here she is setting it up

 Iris having a look..

 Here is the Christmas Table..we had to borrow a chair..i had 7 people and only 6 chairs
 The girls playing Donutters at Heather's house today, they were all hot and sweaty running around but not once did any of them argue or bicker..now that is amazing for 6 of them to get along so well..but they are close.
 My little grandson Sam..he was that hot he stripped off..it was brilliant afternoon,good food,good times and we all had a laugh..which i think in these troubled times is a good thing.
 I received some of the most amazing gifts this year..the book below has been in my watch list on Ebay for months..my son bought it for me..i know its really old and the cover is tatty but i love it.





 A beautiful Handmade Necklace from my son as well..he also bought me a Silicone Pastry Brush and a new Spatula..i was so pleased.
 My husband bought me some beautiful Perfume..it smells heavenly.
 This apron brought squeals of delight from and my girls..isn't it just perfect..my lovely friend Marie sent it ..its so thoughtful and i am going to wear it every time i bake and work around the house..it has 2 big pockets at the front which are brilliant for popping things in..for example dusters,rubber gloves..i love it..
Welcome to my new follower The Squirrel Family..welcome to my little bit of blog world.
Right i am tired and i am going to go to bed and have a quick read of my new book..
take care all

  1. What lovely thoughtful gifts. I love the necklace that your son made for you. The apron idea I shall borrow as my sons girlfriend Hannah made me some lovely edible things for Christmas. I will have a look online and see if I can buy her one.

  6. Vintage books are the best aren't they? I really enjoy old housekeeping manuals and was lucky enough to receive two this Christmas from my parents.
