I'm not in the habit of saying "I told you so" but I knew for a fact it was a massive mistake to not buy a gift for our friends overseas. They always always send something fabulous, but when Dan said he wasn't buying anything I protested then shut up.
We had a splendid day yesterday in Lancaster then at the Burnley match, when we returned home there was a card to collect a parcel. Dan assumed it was something he'd ordered for someone, but on closer inspection this morning the parcel is to both of us. Surprise surprise.
We are out of budget, out of ideas and very short on time...
Luckily for us I have this rather crumpled and unfinished bit of stitchery to finish and offer up as part of the parcel
I did buy it to send to this friend but I disliked doing it so much it ended up in the sideboard. I know she'll like it and sewing is not something she does herself.
Luckily for me I had saved up for a little treat when we went to Lancaster, so I have something to enjoy when I have a break from sewing
Christmas coffee from Atkinsons and a cherry and berry flavoured Round Up (vegan Wagon Wheel). Better get on with it.
