And christmas is here once again. As per usual, I'm going to write my extensive 'presents recieved' list. And, I have posted photos on my photo blog! hurrah!
We got up and opened our presents in the morning, had breakfast and then went for a picnic in the park. There was cheese, bread, sparkling non alcoholic wine and various pastes and pattes that I didn't have any of. There was also Christmas cake. Afterwards we played some throwing and catching games with a frisbee and a ball.
We've only just come back and I've spent ages taking photos of all my presents to illustrate my list!
But before I do that... last night the girls and I went to dinner and exchanged presents. Jasmine got one of hers early and so after dinner we went back to her house to have a look at it - a baby, lop earred bunny! OMG the cuteness was unbearable and I so I took LOADS of photos of him (or her, they don't know yet). We also helped Jasmine wrap presents and ate choc-mint icecream. Celia and I walked home around 1 am - I think we got carried away talking and wrapping and whatnot!
Anyway. Here is the annual LIST!
From Jane (Mum's Friend)
Some frangipani and jasmine shimmering bath and shower cream (It smells gorgeous, and when you wash with it, you come out with a 'glow' from the shimmer stuff!)
