Here's what DH and kids come up with during their short shopping spree friday evening. DH just let the kids buy what they would like to give and they've chosen the two candles in flower form, the red and purple plus a comb and slippers. DH got me a gift coupon, 150 euro's, for me to order/buy a sun glass. He can't just buy it as i need to go and try and be fitted for my eyes. It's a jewelry shop too where the coupon came from so i can use it for jewelry if i want, he said but i really need a sun glass these days for driving.
These are gift coupons too but wrapped in quite big packings instead to an envelope. It's for beauty treatment. As some knows i go for treatment once every 6 or 8 weeks.
This a picture of all the gifts i received yesterday except one as i noticed i didn't include the orchid which is in the side kitchen. Got lots of flower bulbs in pots mainly for outside. But i find them so beautiful to bring them outside in this weather we have right now, it's dark and raining. Aside from that, A couple of books, red wines, a beautiful rose shirt, a dustbuster, lotions&shampoo's.
See, Defenitely NO Stitchy gifts. Almost all our family and friends doesn't know about my stitching hobby and anyway there's almost nothing to buy of it here on the island.
This is just a part of the snacks i made in the morning before visitors arrived early afternoon. Around 15 people came in the afternoon and half of them stayed for dinner. Not many as i had expected, i think a few friends from the mainland had forgotten when i told them last dec. about celebrating it in January. Anyway, after dinner came 10 more people and most of the visitors in the afternoon went home or else the space in the living room is not enough.
It was busy for me but also enjoyed and does everyone or else they won't stay until around 2 AM!!
We cleaned the place at once and went to bed after 3 AM.
And here's a stitchy pic, a start for my next ornament SAL.
Received this one from Sandy at ILCS yahoo group for my Friendship quilt squares collection. I LOVE it! Thanks so much, Sandy.
NOW, i am off to arrange snacks for the kids as their friends are here for the afternoon. Grace and her friend Saar are on the Play Station with Sing-A-Long while Chris and his friend Mels with the Wii Guitar Hero.
A VERY big THANK YOU for all the wishes and comments over my last post. Not even one had said to give in to the challenge for the New Year's Dive. We'll see, as i said i will join too next year.....!
