It's a Wrap and my SSCS Gift

Firstly I have to share my lovely SSCS gift from Steffi in Germany.  


This gift will grace our Christmas table in coming years.  It is so nice and cheery.  Not only that, it matches the tree ornament.  Thanks Steffi and thanks to Chookyblue for one again organising the Swap.

Now that Marica in Sweden has opened her parcel I can share what I sent on its way.



We had a nice, relaxing day on Christmas Day.  


Various friends and family called in during the morning.


We then tucked into a baked Christmas Dinner. Thank goodness the weather wasn't too hot.


After that we visited some more friends for the evening.


It is such a special time of year to spend with those that are special to us.


Mind you, I really do enjoy Boxing Day.  We do very little at all and the Boxing Day Cricket Test is always a must watch event on the telly.  Another good excuse to do nothing.

Liebe Janice,
der Tischläufer passt ja wirklich unheimlich gut auf euren Tisch, das freut mich sehr!!! Aber auch der Läufer den du nach Schweden verschickt hast, ist sehr sehr schön.
Viele liebe Grüße aus dem kühlen Deutschland und einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr,
sendet dir
Steffi
