Hello everyone,
Just thought I'd pop in and let you know that I've not dropped off the face
of the earth...lol.  We've had a wonderful xmas this year... it was great
having Tim in the house with us... it meant the magic of xmas was alive and
well in our home!!  (I got some really nice pics too that I will share on
webshots when I get some time).
Xmas Day DH, Tim and I spent the day at home... Mum and Dad dropped by in
the morning to see what Santa had left and it was a nice visit.  After lunch
we went to the lake for a couple of hours - that was beautiful too.
DH gave me a desk lamp (for my new scrapping area!!! WOOHOOO!!) once I get
that all set up I'll take some pics to share as well... he also gave me a
beautiful gold bracelet.  I was embarrassed when I opened that 'cos we had
made a pact this year we would not do the whole "big present thing" cos
money is tight with me not working anymore.  But he just said, "It's a
bracelet, it's not BIG!"  and how could I get mad at him... my sister says I
should just lap up the attention... lol.
Tim gave me a neat little hand-held electronic Sudoku game - I'm crazy about
sudoku, so that was really apt!
I gave DH a beautiful keyring, I'd gotten a photo of our dearly loved cat
that passed away in July, etched onto the keyring... he absolutely loved it.
I also gave him some Wild Turkey glasses, leather coasters and playing
cards, which he really loved as well.
Tim got so many things.... a remote control monster truck, cricket set, lots
of other cars, trucks and little boy things too...  Can't wait to start
scrapping the pics!
We had our family gathering at mums yesterday (boxing day, do you guys have
boxing day?)  Well, it was the first time in a number of years that the
whole extended family has been together... it was fantastic!!
Anyways, we're all going out to the beach today so the nephews can try out
their new surf and body boards... I may not get the chance to post again for
a couple of days, but I'll try my best to check in regularly.
I pray that everyone had a lovely xmas, and I do apologise that I'll just be
fleeting in and out for a little while... it's so busy here!!

Lots of love to you all,
Cec...xxx.

Cec, glad you all had a wonderful day!  Sound like the weather was just as
nice as over here in SA!

 We also said we would not give expensive gifts this year, but in the end I
got diamond earrings after DH allready gave me a light box for embossing,
earlier ;)  He said it was payback time, because I gave him a Ferrari car
model (he collects them) and then afterwards as a surprise, the Ferrari
fragrance range.  He was totally bowled over as he wanted to get it for
himself, but thought it was too expensive :)

Judy, SA

Thanks Judy, I was beginning to think perhaps my post did not make it
through into ***land!!
I must admit, the bracelet is lovely, and it certainly was a surprise ;)
It's nice to be spoilt every now and again, glad that you were too :)
luv Cec...xxx
