Today I received the most touching and beautiful Christmas card from Mr.B. Every year he forgets to buy one, panics, and on Christmas Eve commissions Miss S to make one. This year was no different, and now that the girls are older and more business savvy, he had to pay hard cash to get one. It turned out to be a team effort. Miss S had the design inspiration, Miss E the nimble fingered scissor skills, and Mr. B himself added the sentiments. The design was circles cut out from pretty patterned papers, attached with string and hanging from the card like baubles. On the back of each bauble was written one of my favourite things. Nice cup of tea, Miss E tidying her room, Cuddles on the sofa, Save-a-Dog scheme website, Midsomer Murders, Walking the dog, Dinner at Hibari (local Japanese restaurant), Miss S singing, Blogging, Bed before 10pm, Sleeping, Chickens, More sleeping. Life in the fast lane. There is one circle left blank. I think I’ll add ‘Family’ as my last favourite thing.
Wishing everyone a day as delightful as mine. Merry Christmas!
