Mini Christmas

One thing about our Christmases is that they are extended over more than the standard 2 days, especially if we have been away.
Although we haven’t had a roast dinner today, we have been parcel picking, shaking, prodding and guessing.
Hubby has spoilt me, as not only have I had my ten pound dash parcels, but a lovely pair of creole earrings which I am wearing now.
He bought me a chocolate santa and two reindeer filled with mini smarties, some pain killing cream for my hip which I can carry in my handbag, some cocoa butter moisturizer to soothe my aching feet, and a boating cook book which I shall be working my way through as the recipes are designed for cooking in the limited space of a narrowboat kitchen!

Apart from his chocolate santa, I gave him a small can of WD40 he can keep immediately to hand anywhere, his favourite cashew nuts and an individual panettone cake (they don’t count as sweets!), some special coffee mix, a set of six sketching pencils, a jar of marmite (I hate it, he loves it), some vanilla reed diffusers (our host has some here and he liked them) and the most practical of all, a miniature chalk board for the boat to remind us of important appointments.
We’d already put our tree up and a few pieces of tinsel in the conservatory (as well as our window of course), so we are quite festive.

When we get back to the boat, we have another parcel to open, the one from my sister which we deliberately left there to welcome us back!


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I can’t believe what you managed to buy each other for only 10 pounds! You did very well! 🙂
