Our online group, Friends in Stitching, has a mini Advent before we open the main present on Christmas Day. My lovely partner is Christine and she has sent me the most wonderful gifts.
Day 1: Something for the tree
Day 2: Something for the table - the candle smells beautiful - all candles are lit on Christmas Eve
Day 3: Something for the hands
So looking forward to opening the main present tomorrow.
The weekend was pretty much about getting ready for The Big Day and the day after (we always have a crowd for Boxing Day dinner): housecleaning etc on Saturday, followed by a 50th birthday party; and grocery/fruit/veg shopping yesterday, cooking and then another birthday party.
Elizabeth and Matt arrive this afternoon and I'm looking forward to the Melbourne Carols tonight - always great discussion over the dresses/gowns worn by the singers.
