Christmas at home!

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 :-)
