I am following Shimelle’s Journal Your Christmas again this year, but with a twist. I am not making an album,just posting on my blog. So today’s prompt is about making plans for happiness! I love that! I have some happy plans to celebrate Christmas with family and friends.
Last year I had several social engagements, such as a dinner dance at the Amex Stadium, an 80th birthday party and a wedding celebration. I bought 2 new dresses, and had a super hair-do. It was lovely! This year, I feel happy that we don’t have so much to do. I am happy to have a quieter Christmas season. I have made a few plans to celebrate with friends, such as a dinner with gym friends, and a dinner at a friends to celebrate her new house, and ‘warm it up’ for Christmas! We are sad that both Maurice’s nephews are abroad for Christmas this year, but will have a lovely quiet Christmas day with their Dad, Maurice’s brother. Later in Christmas week, we will invite my brother’s family for a get together. They have their first grandchild, who I have made a baby quilt for ….shhh! don’t tell!
Tash, Burnice and I decided to make each other an advent box this year. I’ve done 25 presents for Tash, Tash for Burnice and Burnice for me. Last night we had our usual get together at Burnice’s craft cabin, and exchanged the gifts. Here they are on Burnice’s sofa:
Don’t they look fab!
So I’m going to blog my present each day:
Day 1, a basket to put all the presents in
Day 2 cute bird pegs, and Day 3 cute doll hook
Tash bought me this fabulous book. I have already seen this book on Julie’s blog here and was very keen to buy it. Tash beat me to it! The perfect present!
And a little extra present from Burnice, a nail file that fixes to a key ring, and a slab of chocolate, moulded in Christmas words
