I think we all like everything in place for Christmas, The aches for the preparations tend to far exceed the day itself, But I know I for one sit down on Christmas Eve and enjoy the fruits of the labour that has gone in to making it a very special day.
The Christmas Hamper this year will be a chocolate treat ready for sharing and oh yes I will delight in saving the boxes for some craft project for the New Year, the sumptuous sheer ribbon is sure to come in handy too. of course I could divide this Christmas Hamper and give out individual Chocolate boxes but I’m just not sure if I can part with them.
There is one flower that just oozes the Christmas Spirit for me and that is the Poinsettia, it’s vibrant leaves scream out Christmastime and if like my Mam you have green fingers you will be able to keep it going year after year, I’m certain she talks to it.
Mine is so beautiful now that it will be the center piece on my table, Granson Jack feels the need to touch the leaves of mine each time he comes in, I think it is because they look so like velvet,if you recall I made some free sheets with my Poinsettia photo for you all. I’ve added another below.
I find the hardest gift to get is for both mine and Chris’s Mams, the trouble is that if they want something they go and get it and anything we think of they seem to already have, luckily for me my Mam already new what she wanted this year.
My mother in law was another story, in the end she asked for money but I felt that I couldn’t let the occasion pass with out getting a few gifts for her. After all I get much more pleasure in giving a gift than I do in receiving them, I love to watch the faces of them opening up the surprize don’t you?
below is the free sheet.
