First, I want to share my gifts from Chookyblue's Secret Santa Swap!
Coming all the way to me from Chookyblue herself!
Love the bag-think my own English Paper Piecing just found a home!
The needle case-just amazingly beautiful.
Such a tiny Lucy Boston block.
Love it all!
As well as the Australia Calendar (which didn't make the photos-oops)
The family all had a look at the Outback.
I can't show a post of what I sent to Janimary as I don't know if she's opened it!
I do know she liked the ornament though!
Next, about this post's title.
I always think of the week between Christmas and New Year's as
It just doesn't seem to fit in the current year and yet isn't in the new one either.
A Quirk of mine.
I do have a list of things to accomplish this week, but it's mostly about relaxing and doing as I please.
Today, I've been reading and working at the disaster that was my house.
I have a small kitchen.
That's fine when it's just me but it's very easy to destroy it's tidiness!
Since I had 11 here for dinner, yeah a big mess.
The dishwasher is running for the third time since we ate last night.
A few things will need washed up by hand a bit later.
I've gotten the folding chairs and table taken down (but not stored)
and the main table returned to it's rightful place.
But for now I'm going to curl up on the sofa
under a quilt
in front of the fire
while it snows a bit outside
