These sweet little lanterns are a late birthday present which was given to me earlier in the week. Today I was able to light them up with the most decadent tea-lights, battery operated, so they can sit among the bits and pieces without fear of fire, and operated by a REMOTE CONTROL.... oh wow!
My birthday flowers are still just about surviving too; I need to add water and remove the roses but everything else looks fine.
So, what's this about Christmas arriving early?
We met up with my brother and my sister-in-law and my father for lunch today, and a partial Christmas present exchange. Partial, because not all Christmas presents were actually present for the occasion.
My sister-in-law has a real knack for choosing books for me. Previous choices have included a Wendy Cope anthology of poems, and 'Archbishop' by Michele Guinness. Today I have received this
which I will start reading tonights, no, hang on, should I wait until Christmas?
The latest knitted mouse is also in the photograph....
