Oh, What a Perfect Day!

Dan Advent Christmas has officially arrived here in Cambridge and what a fabulous Christmas it has been so far!

Friday, I rushed home from work to put the tree up ... Saturday was officially Christmas eve and today [Christmas Day] me and my crafting chums got together to swap not so secret Santa pressies, pull crackers and generally Dan Advent 1 laugh all day long!

Did I forget too mention the eating part??? ... we did lots of that too!!!

It has become a bit of a tradition that we all get together at Christmas and even though we had to do it early [due to other commitments] we managed to do it in style!!!

Part of the tradition is that as a secret Santa you buy a present ... and you make one ... the good thing about doing it early meant that I could make my recipient an advent calendar and fill it with goodies!!!

I think he liked it ... Happy Christmas everyone!!!
