Christmas Morning..... Gifts Part 1

I had some lovely presents from my friends Rosanna and Katie. (If you click on their names it will take you to their blogs).

Rosanna's box contained lots of lovely Nougat Sweets which are Mick's favourite, so I've hid them, otherwise there won't be any for anybody else, a very pretty little Angel Ornament who is now hanging on the tree and a typical Genoa Christmas Cake called Pandolce which is flavoured with orange blossom water and fennel. In her card Rosanna said that traditionally the first cut must be made by the youngest member of the family. So that honour will fall to Harry.

Katie sent me some lovely miniature pictures, which are photographs that Katie has taken and miniaturised. Katie explained in her letter where the photo's were taken. The Barn next to the pond, is Jackson's Mill, West Virginia. The Building is Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia and the Tree picture was taken in Katies parents garden in Washington DC. Katie said she thought this one would be neat for a Haunted House..

Thank you Ladies for your gifts. Merry Christmas xxxxx

Wonderful gifts, and I think that in the light of your surprise gift of the fabulous jug maybe you'll just 'have' to share some of that tasty nougat with you husband after all :)
