Flowers, Chicken and Tree of Life

12 Jan

We came home last night to find that our Hyacinths, planted for my birthday, had indeed flowered then and are still looking lovely along with the Christmas Cactus.dscn0393

One of our Christmas presents, opened in London last weekend, was this delightful glass chicken made by Danielle Hopkinson. It amused us to put it on our lovely wooden egg keeper along with the eggs! Thanks L, T and B.


We opened another Christmas present today too, a beautiful intricate carving of The Tree of Life which is now on our kitchen wall. Thanks V and P.dscn0400

Yet another parcel was waiting for us when we arrived home last night and I will show you the beautiful contents tomorrow. Thanks P and J.

    Enjoyed seeing all your adventures in Spain and London and the good times you had with the two families. You’ve received some lovely presents along the way.

    Congratulations on the arrival of your new grandbabies! It’s too bad they arrived after you left for home, but at least they arrived safe and sound.

    It’s good to go away and it’s good to come back home, right?

      Always good to come home again! We have had a lovely time with the families and now the peace and quiet is to be treasured too! The babies went home yesterday and now A’s Mum has come from Senegal to be with them for three months so they will have lots of help! D has 4 weeks paternity leave which is brilliant too.
      With love xx

    I love the tree of life carving! It’s so beautiful! My husband and his welding teacher cut one out of steel for me for an anniversary gift a few years ago.
