I can't believe how few photos I took this Christmas... there are a few of the family and cousins, but none of the wider (well 6 other people we saw) family, including the husband's sister visiting from England! I had no idea where 3 of my own family members were (or are now) on the day - somewhere travelling the world!
It was a pretty quiet day - we saw the eldest for about 5 hours as he worked a lot of the day! It was low key in gifts. There was yummy food - i made an amazing, from scratch, custard square for the family dessert.
I was thrilled with my first ever Emma Bridgewater crockery and mug from England and a divine retro lamp made here in New Zealand. I was also lucky enough to spend the night at a fab city hotel last night as a gift.
My cousin gifted me the Happy Go Knitty/ Hanging Rock Roost pattern/wool/stitching bag, which is lovely. And I was also gifted some touch yarn and chic n fish yarn.
A lovely leisurely day basically pulled together in 24 hours!
