Back, but still not quite there and Secret Santa Christmas Swap


That has been quite a while, that I wrote my last post. I have been back for more than a week now, but somehow I am still not back to earth. And I have only been away for three weeks. But, we had such a wonderful time in California with Louise and in Mexico, that it is difficult to be back.
More about our vacation in next posts.

Het is weer een tijdje geleden, dat ik voor het laatst heb geschreven. Ik ben nu meer dan een week terug, maar op de een of andere manier kan ik er nog niet echt aan wennen. En we zijn 'maar' 3 weken weggeweest. California met Louise en Mexico met Laura waren zo fijn, dat het moeilijk is weer aan het normale dagelijkse leven te wennen.
Meer over onze vakantie in berichten die volgen.

This year I joined only one organized swap, the Secret Santa Christmas Swap (SSCS) with Chookyblue. Liz from Luv 2 Cre8te is/was my Secret Santa.
Once we get our parcel, we are allowed to open the ornament. Look at what Liz made me. It's so pretty!!! And ... PINK!
I love the saying on the back, that Liz stitched! And she added a tea bag (o: I'll be thinking of you then, Liz!

Dit jaar heb ik aan één georganiseerde swap meegedaan, nl. die van Chookyblue, de Secret Santa Christmas Swap (SSCS). Liz van Luv 2 Cre8te is/was mijn Secret Santa.
Als we het pakketje krijgen, mogen wij het cadeautje met de ornament openmaken. Kijk eens wat Liz voor me heeft gemaakt. Het is zo mooi!!! En ... PINK!
Is het gedichtje dat Liz op de achterkant gestitcht heeft niet leuk! Er zit ook een theezakje bij (o: Ik zal aan je denken, Liz!



On Christmas Day
At half past 3 ...
I'll think of you
You think of me.

Wat heerlijk dat je zo'n fijne vakantie hebt gehad. Aan de foto te zien zul je vast ook weer aan onze koude regenachtige weer moeten wennen.
Het kerstboompje is prachtig. Wat een ontzettend mooi cadeau.
Fijne feestdagen!

No rush Simone, blogland isn't going anywhere. :-) It takes me ages to be myself after a trip. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. Have a wonderful Christmas. Your SSCS is a lovely idea with such a sweet sentiment.
