This year I was celebrating Christmas at home with my mum, dad, brother, and sister-in-law. It's so nice having Christmas at home for a change! The weather gets beautiful and hot and it really feels like Christmas!
My outfit for about half the day. I got this dress last year in London at Camden Town markets. Sorry you can't see my legs, and my hair's all weird-messy!
Presents under our tiny Christmas tree. See the Santa sacks? He's BEEN!
Closeup of the Christmas cake. Mum makes the best Christmas cake - mostly fruit. You can see the cherries peeking out of the icing. We're still eating it and it's so lovely.
Jubes! A Christmas tradidion at our house.
Santa gave me a little night light in the shape of a birdhouse! It's got native superb blue wrens on it. I think Santa knows I like They Might Be Giants.
My brother and sister-in-law got me this cute handbag! It's an owl! I wore it out today and got a compliment from a complete stranger :-) so nice.
A cute top!
Finally, two darling old ladies at church gave me a coathanger each, independently of each other. They are lacy, scented, and beautiful, and are both intended for me to hang my wedding dress on. Now what am I supposed to do? My dress doesn't even have sleeves!
So Christmas was lovely at home. We ate loads of wonderful food cooked with love, played badminton in the backyard for a while, napped, and had a great time together.
I'm about to make the trip over to Europe - to London for a few days and then Oslo and Sweden. Charles and I are going to be doing some awesome music projects while I'm there! Please wish me luck on the plane trip :-)
Thanks for reading :-)
