The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Oh it certainly is.  Plus, its Advent time again .... so exciting.  Yes, Emma and I are doing our annual Advent swap again and oh I'm just loving ... and I mean loving what she's bought me. If I'm honest, I actually haven't got much past oohhh'ing and ahhh'ing over the sack she's put my gifts in.  So here are the past few days ... oh and I couldn't help photographing our actual swap day. I'm sure people in Costa's think we're nuts lol.

(I was told, I could only post this picture if it didn't make her look drunk or with 5 chins ... boy, did photoshop, have it's work cut out lol) x

Normally we exchange presents earlier, so that we can open them on the morning of the 1st ... but as the 1st fell on our weekly coffee date, we exchanged them at Costas. Plus, Emma can't be trusted with a present earlier lol.

She actually, handed her present to me for the 1st, so that she could surprise with this beauty, when it came out of a bigger carrier bag. 
Yes ... I know a Cath Kidston sack ... oh I couldn't be happier. 
Here was day 1
And here's day 2 .... sooo excited. 

If you get a moment, pop along to Emma, she's sharing her presents too.
