Post Christmas Peace

Well that's another Christmas over whew! I hope you all had a good time. It's been a busy few days but we have all had a ball, the kids have on the whole been pretty good. Christmas Day went by in a whirlwind of noise as we spent the day at my dads with all the family 17 of us ranging from a two week old baby to a septuagenarian and a whole lot of ages in between. Great fun but must admit to being glad to get home to a little peace and quiet! We have had plenty of visitors and done plenty of visiting which means I have not managed to get any stitching or any crafting done.
I did manage to squeeze in a sort of finish by the skin of my teeth on Christmas Eve.
This was from a pattern in Homemaker magazine. Just needs buttons!

I just wanted to share this with you, my daughter was making her annual family peppermint creams when she excitedly shouted me through to see what she had found -
A double yolker! and less than a minute later -
Yep another one! No more twins please!

We have been doing a bit of birthday celebrating this month too. 

The girls hit another teen year and due to time restraints we had to make do with a small cake this year. Ideally they would like one each but as their birthday is just before Christmas there is only so much cake we as a family can cope with! Sorry girls! 

I won't make any resolutions but do hope to get plenty of stitching in fingers crossed. 
I would like to thank you for taking the time to pop by this year and wish you all a healthy and happy New Year! and
Lang may yer lum reek!
