What I was given for Christmas 2016

I don't want to be braggy with a post basically showing off my Christmas presents...but I really love my presents! I felt super emotional this Christmas as  I pretty much love everything I was given which makes me feel very cared for. I can be tricky to buy gifts for as I can be picky and don't like to own superfluous 'stuff' so I usually much prefer the giving of gifts more than receiving.

I had intended to do a post about the presents I was giving but never took the photographs in time so I can only do the presents I got. December has been a bit hard but there has been lots of joy, especially spending Christmas with my family. We stayed with my sister and spent lots of time playing with Penny, my much adored one and a half year old niece.

Moments of November: cooking and creating

I needed a rest and I have been resting like a restful resty thing. I have mainly been eating and cooking and listening to music. I made fresh tortellini from scratch, filled with lemony ricotta and hard cheeses. YUM. Took hours. Was worth it.  (The 2 of us ate 4 peoples worth of pasta in one meal. Because yes.)
