Doesn't Time Fly (Long Post)

Hello everyone!!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas whatever you did :) I had a superb Christmas with my hubby, kiddies and my father in law.  The day couldn't have been better!!

The kiddies absolutely LOVED their presents (so much so they haven't fallen asleep before 12am).  My father in law came up at 9am on Christmas Day to see myself, hubby and the kiddies and to have Christmas dinner with us.

The turkey was in the oven by 9.30am and the veggies were peeled and ready to put on (although there was a slight disaster the night before with the carrot and swede mix and the sprouts), so we ended up with brocolli, peas and I'm sure there was another veg, but can't think what it was, aswell as some sort of roasted potatoes (they were put in the oven, but I didn't let them get too hard to eat, they were perfect).

Dinner was served up at 1.30pm bang on and I have to say it was THE BEST turkey I've ever tasted - thanks to the hubby who prepared it.

After Christmas dinner, we all sat down and chilled out on the sofa, the kiddies with their new toys, and me with my bliss!

On the stitching front of things now:

I haven't done any more at all on 12 days of Christmas or any other project other than my HAED.  I've totally gotten engrossed with that now and am onto page 3 :) I've also bought the threads and fabric needed for my next HAED - Moon Goddess by Dahlig and I cannot wait to start her ( soon as threads and fabric arrive) - with thanks to hubby and kiddies who gave me the money to get them.

I'm hoping I will have page 3 of HAED done shortly and once I have, I will post up a picture :) Nearly onto the tiger...can't wait.

It is New Year's Eve tomorrow, so we will be down my father in laws with the kiddies so we can set off a couple of fireworks to celebrate the beginning of the year 2012.  On New Year's Day however, there will be a few chores to be done due to them not properly being done over Christmas and the kiddies return to school on 4th January, so lots to get done and not much time left.

I hope that however you celebrate (or if you do) New Year, I hope you all have a fantastic evening and a totally Fabulous 2012!!!!



  1. wishing you and your family a very happy new year.
