Home.....

I'm home from Belsay.
I literally got in the door an hour ago & I am exhausted.
I have everything to unpack, washing to do & all my pressies to look at again!!!!
I have some fabby gifts & that includes my Secret Santa gift from my team mate. It was fab, a gorgeous tin filled with ribbon & brads.....

I am still poorly, I ache everywhere & have quite a chesty cough.
I stayed indoors most of the time except for Xmas Day when we went out to lunch & Boxing Day, we went shooting.

I hope you all had some amazing pressies & lots of great food, wine & company.
We had a very lazy time, as most of us were poorly, with a cold, in the end!!!

I got some great craft bits from my sister, which included a Vintage Mega Bonus Box from Scrap Magic & the Creative Keepsakes' book by Ali Edwards, "A Designer's eye for scrapbooking with patterned paper." So, I may be engrossed well into the New Year.

To round off my visit, my sister took me to my favourite shop today, Ikea!!! We avoided the Metro Centre like the plague, but I got some storage bits for my increased collection of craft supplies....

What I'm looking forward to now is a hot bath, very large mug of tea & my warm bed...
Catch up with you all later with some pressie photos..... but first I must locate my camera!!
