Christmas with friends

We're not hosting any Christmas party this year, so besides a couple of Christmasy candle holders, I didn't put up any decorations.

It was really lovely to see our friends' home being prettily dressed up.

The party was a gathering of a few of their close friends, most of whom I have gotten to know more over the years.

The spread of food was generous, and a feast for the eyes too, with the gorgeous array of colours. I contributed a well-received Cream of Mushroom soup, which I was very pleased about ;)

I've been really busy trying to put together my Christmas presents. I've insisted on at least 1 handmade item for all my family and closer friends, and that (I've discovered), is really rather challenging! (Especially with the recent illness that knocked me out for 5 full days - what a waste of precious time...)

So far, I've been timing my "production" to deliver to people who are going away, or who are visiting, so that I don't miss them out.

With one week left though, I really have to crank up the engine!

Cheer me on!

you go, girl!

handmade ones are the funnest ones to do, and they also end up being appreciated and remembered...what's not to like? apart from the fatigue maybe, hehe!

A very merry Christmas to you and Roboman, in case I don't 'meet' you in BlogLand between now and then! May your year ahead be a grand one :)

thanks all, let's see how I do ;)
*chugging along* I just packed up about 60 presents (but those were bought ones). That was tiring too! But worth it :)
