I've been blessed with a few gifts again this year, one of my favourites has to be Monopoly for the Xbox 360 from the mister. I think the worst has to be the 'knit your own bear' kit (sorry Mum!) as, although I can knit, I find it mind numbingly tedious!
Anyways never mind that, ti's the season to get crafty so last night I started the first batch of..........
Talking of crafty, I've recently become re-acquainted with Martha Stewart so I have vowed that next year will be a totally hand made Christmas (OK, except for a few of the boys things, well you can't expect miracles from teens/preteens).
ooh I've also recently been given the gift of cooking technology - lol OK you got me, I had my cooker installed with huge thanks to my roller derby wife Zoe and her talented hubby CJ, theirs has been one of the best gifts this year - the gift of friendship. Its also re-ignited my love of cookery! I've promised the boys they can help me in the kitchen more and I went as far as getting them cookery gifts this year. Anyway with all these plans I'm on the look out for a food processor/mixer - its got to be under £40 as I'm on a tight budget but the sales so far are letting me down! Btw if anyone knows of a good one please feel free to comment.
Well I feel that's quite enough from me for today, I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening and have a merry Christmas one and all
ps I know I promised pics of that hair set - next blog ok ;)
