Another December birthday yesterday, mine :-)
Yes, next year will be a big one, but for the rest of this year and most of the next I will be enjoying the last year of my fifties😂
The children spoilt me yet again, they do put a lot of thought into their gifts and buy things that are perfect for me.
Included in the advent swap that I did with my lovely friend Jo were some things for me to open on my birthday.
Thank you so much Jo, I absolutely love everything 😀
There is one more family birthday today, my brother's. He is seven years older than me so you could say that I was his birthday present all those years ago, lol. We were very close when we were younger, I used to follow him everywhere and he would let me tag along with him and his friends. We don't see each other very often now but he is still the one I can relate to more than either of my sisters.
When I was younger I used to think it was a bit pants having a birthday so close to Christmas, I tended to get presents that were for Christmas and birthday. Having two of my daughters born in December I made sure that never happened with them, they always had, (and still have) a proper birthday with birthday presents wrapped in birthday paper, (very important to someone with a birthday close to Christmas). I don't mind that my birthday is so close to Christmas now, when I was at work it meant that I never had to work on my birthday either, ha ha.
I've been stitching away on my Waxing |Moon Designs January sampler over the last couple of days
Do you think I made this happen 😄
I hope you are still enjoying what's left of the festive season, now made even more festive here by the snow :-)
See you soon
