feel like a fifties housewife

Tuesday, 28 December 2010

Thank you for all the lovely Christmas messages people have commented recently. I hope everyone had a wonderful few days of presents, argumentative family games, Christmas TV and a ridiculous amount of food, like me.

I'm a little clueless when it comes to new blog posts. Whether I drank too much over the Christmas period or work has drained me I do not know but I thought I would share some of my Christmas presents with you.

On Christmas Day, I pretty much felt like a fifties housewife. I got my asked-for sewing machine from John Lewis and a gorgeous Cath Kidston sewing basket (which I actually bought myself). I then got some sewing accessories from Ikea and the sewing book 'Make' from Cath Kidston. Hopefully, this little lot will actually teach me how to sew in a half-decent way.

I also got some baking trays, doilies, muffin cases and a really cute book called '30 Yummy Things To Cook and Eat', as well as 'Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals book'. I think my mum might want us to switch roles a la Freaky Friday?!

I also got some other wonderful presents that I'm about to sort through. I love this part.
What did everybody get? And did you all have a good Christmas?

  5. How strange - I also got a mini pink sewing machine for Xmas and that Ikea sewing set from my mum! I've also been eyeing up the Cath Kidston sewing boxes, but my mum has a pretty HORRIFIC one that was a gift from my nan that she is threating to pass on to me...I don't think so!
