We had a fabulous evening, as always! da Bruvva made his famous spagbol, Sister C made a delish green salad, Sister B made a starter of crackers with mussels on and I took cupcakes decorated with white butter frosting and little mistletoe thingies.
Unfortunately, my little Fuji Finepix camera is not picking up that there’s a memory card in it, and the photos that have been saved “to internal memory” need a cable to get them off- which I can’t find! My Pentax has gone in for repairs as it has suddenly decided it doesn’t recognise lenses… or some such. Hopefully I’ll get it back soon ‘coz I’m quite lost without it, and there’s lots happening soon so I need it!
The gifts were mindblowingly horrid- as always- and its always so funny to unwrap them!
I got my sister C’s gift this year- which is a wind chime involving furry cats and a little basket… the detailed pictures are on the Finepix- so I can’t show you yet. Sister B got da bruvva’s gift- a pair of pottery cats and mushrooms reminiscent of the pottery “Mexicans” and cactii people used to like to hang on their outside walls… Sister C got Sister B’s gift- a set of pink and white porcelain pieces- a dog and a vase- like you used to be able to swop for old clothes from those ladies who walked door to door. And da Bruvva got my gift. I had “wrapped” it in a brown KFC bag, which I thought was appropriate. Its a chicken. A polystyrene chicken covered in real feathers. It weighs next to nothing, and its quite hideous!
And I won!!! Hands down this year- I gave the best worst gift!!!
Here are some photies for your viewing pleasure.
