I got a Bigshot for Christmas and its Friday!

Whoohoo! Matt got me a BigShot for Christmas! How lucky am I! I also go some lovely new PJ's, speakers for my pc, the cutest little teapot, a mini greenhouse for bringing on my seedlings early and some fabby pennies! The greenhouse was from Matt's Mum and is great as it means I will be able to bring on the flowers Im going to grow for our wedding on nice and early, and speed them up if they need it, such a thoughtful gift.

Christmas day itself was lovely, we went to a gorgeous watchnight service, Ive never been to one before and it was beautiful, lovely to sing carols in such friendly company and the minister was really funny, smiley and caring. It was so frosty it looked like it had snowed, really beautiful, I tried to take some photos and will have a go at loading them later if they came out. Had a long lie on Christmas day morning and then spent the day at Matt's Mums house which was really relaxing. It was so nice just to chill out together and chat and share.

Then boxing day night, after a sloth like day, I came down with a nasty pukey bug and only really surfaced properly yesterday night, realising it was time for our latest dare...eek! Luckily this weeks is nice and easy. To make a simple and Stylish Thank you card. Mine's a blatant copy of a previous card I've done *blush* but I hope to do some more now I'm feeling better, to say thanks for all the gorgeous presents I received so as I do them I'll share them.
I've also received some more gorgeous birthday cards, lucky me again! I'll put them up shortly. I always keep all my birthday cards up as long as my Christmas ones so I'll still get to show them off for a bit yet. I hope you had a lovely Christmas too.
