Secret Santa

I was so excited this morning to receive my Secret Santa present which came all the way from Australia. My present came from Mee at http://www.meexia.com/bookie/. I cannot believe I have never read Mee's blog before, especially as so many of you visit her blog. I shall definitely make it a regular visit.

Mee was kind enough to send me a rainbow curtain to make with my girlies, which they cannot wait to get their hands on. Mee also sent me a box to make, probably after realising my crafting obsession. I also got some lovely bookmarks, with the aboriginal one being my favourite and some coasters. Thank you so much Mee for being my Secret Santa.

Just thought I would let you know that the whole family woke up this morning to a white world. The snow fell heavily during the night and we now have about 10cm of snow, which is lovely as the children broke up from school yesterday. I am really hoping that we get a white Christmas, as I have never actually seen one. I will try and get some pictures up for tomorrow, so you can see. Unfortunately for me, I have woken up with a stinking rotten cold, so I won't be venturing out in it. I will have to stay in under a blanket, turn the fire on and sit with a glass of mulled wine(purely medicinal purposes) and one of my mum's mince pies with a good Christmas book. What a hard life it is!

  1. I hope you like the gifts. I'm so nervous about it as it looks like so many people give awesome gifts! The extra bookmarks and coasters I just threw them in as I received a few from book club girl, but the main gift is the aboriginal bookmark and the two craft thingies (though probably not very crafty). Hope you enjoy them somewhat! :)

    ps: Too bad about the cold. Hope you get well soon!

  4. What wonderful gifts and so thoughtful. I was so disappointed that I was too late to join Secret Santa this year. Oh well, there's always next year - what am I talking about, we haven't even celebrated this years yet.

    Anyway, you keep warm and well. Enjoy that mulled wine (purely medicinal as you say).

  5. Mee - the gifts were beautiful and very thoughtful. Thank you ever so much.

    Katrina - you can borrow my kids. They have been in the snow permanently. Too cold for me.

    Petty Witter - it is definitely worth joining in next year. It is a lovely surprise to receive a gift and you get to know a new book blogger.

  12. Lovely secret Santa gifts! I'm sorry to hear that you came down with a cold. I see that you posted this a couple of days ago, do you still have snow now?

    I've only ever experienced one white Christmas and that was last year. The boys are certain if they wish hard enough it will happen this year too, but it's supposed to be in the 50s and raining. I'm sure we'll still have a lot of fun though.

    I hope you get your white Christmas!
