Festive Round Up

Christmas chez nous has looked an awful lot like this ...

The large bottle at the back is the one I'm resorting to next!

The lurgy landed on Christmas Eve, took hold and pummelled one of us into Christmas Day defeat (DS) and another (me) into Boxing Day surrender, which is why this is still packed with food ...

This morning things started to look a little better.  We are still coughing and spluttering and blowing our noses for Britain, but pressies which had been largely ignored after Christmas morning unwrapping are starting to be enjoyed.

DS's pressie stash

Let me introduce you to my new sewing room girlies -

Jemma and Millie

They will be the guardians of my stash including these sweet new spotty rainbow fqs

All lovely gifts from DS.  I love these bright little Junior Kimmi Dolls because unlike a lot of the Kimmi Dolls these ones have their eyes open.  My boy knows me well!

And for my final shot of our Christmas - three pairs of feet snuggling.  We may be sick, but I thank God we have had our Christmas together!


  1. Ah, someone who's been in the same boat as us ....
    We still have to prepare and eat a 'Christmas Dinner' .... honestly, it's the first Christmas I can recall being ill - we, hopefully, are on the mend and hope you aren't too far behind us Sarah - seasons blessings to you all ;o)

  2. Much the same at this house, though it wasn't me who was one of the patients. I just got to be nurse. Therefore I have earned my wine too!

  3. Poor you. At least the fridge is stocked for when you all feel better. The sewing 'girls' are sweet. Di x

  4. So sorry to hear you have all been sick. Hopefully you are on the mend and can enjoy New Year. Love the Kimmi dolls and polka dots.

  5. Yep, love that final sentiment. Sorry you have been poorly, but here's to getting better. I had a dotty fq pile like that a while back, great fun

  6. Oh no! So sorry to hear you've all been poorly! Bummer! Hope you are all on the mend now. Jxo

  7. Hope you are all fully recovered! Have a relax and be great for the New Year!

  8. Feel better soon. My cold held off until Boxing Day x
