made for me

I was given some lovely Christmas presents this year and I want to take a moment to celebrate the hand made and home made that I received.  Firstly, this special bag of treats, all made by the amazing Chrissie and Jamie.  How good does this look?IMG_0267And hidden inside – jelly, tablet, elderberry juice, christmas tree oatcakes and glittery shortbread stars.  So beautiful and so delicious.IMG_0264Next up, three presents from the skilled fingers of my clever sister: a hand knitted wash cloth so delicate its too pretty for washing dishes; a cross stitch initial for baby E; and a jar of apple jelly – see how it glows!IMG_0428 IMG_0423 IMG_0437Last by not least, this jar of chutney came from my brother-in-law – its very good.  (He actually gave us two, but one has already been devoured.)  Present giving: what a great opportunity to celebrate creativity.  Thank you, all!IMG_0436

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
