Well, the next think I know it's middle of November and I still have 8 pressies to get. Burn is now panicking somewhat. I did manage it tho, just!!!!!
December 2nd arrives (our Cabin night) and it's all very exciting. I made a yule log which was not one of my best efforts. I made some chocolate slabs using a mould from Lakeland (they were lurverly!). Christmas decs up - and now I wait. Tash arrives with a fabulous box of goodies (aaaalllllll miiiiiiinnnnnne!) done up with florist cellophane and a fabulous gold bow. Then we wait for Linda, and wait, and wait. Linda has got held up in traffic. A very nasty accident on the A27. She finally arrives and we get down to it. There are sausage rolls, mince pies and ice cream (I ate the tub all bar two biggish scoops that Linda and Tash had!).
We decide to open days 1 and 2. There is much anticipation.
This is my Day 1. An advent candle. I found this gorgeous Christmas Rose candle stick collar in my cupboard and which I think goes brilliantly with the colours of the candle. Thanks Tasha.
This is day 2. Sorry about the quality of the pic. It's duct tape which Tasha bought in the States when she was there in August.
Why don't we have such pretty duct tape?
Day 3. Cupcake cases. Burnice just loves cupcakes.
Day 4. A bag.
This is brilliant. It starts out life as a rose and morphs into a shopping bag.
We also gave gifts to our "not advent person", it was all very exciting.
I think I have probably bored you all silly for the time being so I will post the rest tomorrow and I will have day 8 then too.
