Christmas in July Swap

I know, I know it's August. But Christmas did arrive in July. You can see what I received from Sharm. Thank you Sharm and Cheryll too ( our great organiser)

There was a Christmas Apron, which is just right for when I cook the Christmas pudding. I am the family Christmas pudding maker and I have been making it since I was old enough to do so. I have a recipe which has been handed down through a few generations - there have one or two changes but generally it has stayed the same for the time that I have been making it. So this year I will look the part and certainly be in the right mood for pudding making.

A cute little mouse pincushion is there too. I don't think he will be stirring on Christmas Eve although he might jump a bit if I put a pin in him. And included were some lovely candle melts. These are headed for the bathroom as both my tradie son and I like having relaxing baths. So Sharm really hit the jackpot with these choices, didn't she?

And yummy goodies too - do I need to say anything more?

So thank you Sharm and Cheryll - it's nice to feel special half way through the year.
