Christmas bits and bobs

Today is the start of my Christmas holidays - what a joy to wake up on and a Monday morning and not have to go to work.

I was overwhelmed with gifts from the children I work with, as well as some lovely home made cards. They are such a lovely bunch of kids, I'm very lucky.

My Dream Blanket is coming on a treat. I'm really enjoying making it, and half the fun is deciding what colour should come next (I always defer to Emily - she is my Artistic Director after all!). I have 32 colours in total (couldn't choose, so bought loads!!), and size wise, it's a perfect size for my double bed. Emily has asked me to make her one next, but she wants to limit it to about six colours and have more rows per colour.

We decorated our house for Christmas yesterday and now we feel nice and festive. Emily took some lovely photos of the tree, and both the children went a bit mad putting tinsel everywhere. I don't mind because it was lovely that they were so involved and excited.

Why is when you don't have to get up early, you are always awake at a ridiculous hour. I was awake before 7am and up and dressed by 8am. As the children were still asleep I thought I would be a little bit self indulgent and watch my Eclipse DVD which came two weeks ago and I haven't had a chance to watch. I really enjoyed it (again!!) - a great start to the day!

I've also managed to make my parents' Christmas card (sorry Mum and Dad if you're reading this). I didn't really leave it to the last minute, but my Mum has seen all the cards I made so I couldn't send them one of those. Anyway it's done now!
Have a great day.
