Christmas eve I managed to get a last minute gift knocked up for Dus. Well, for Dus' marbles really. He got marbles last year and they've sat in the box unplayed with since then because it's just too much hassle to get them out and played with. So I used the lined drawstring bag tutorial from In colour order to make this and I have to say I'm in love with the shape!
Christmas eve we had a roast dinner with roast potatoes, parsnips, carrots and brussel sprouts. And of course yorkshire puddings! I've never been able to get them to rise before but I tried a new recipe and ....well....they definitely rose!
I didn't take many photos Christmas day as I was too busy having fun but here's one of Dus' favourite stocking gifts. A 1983 He-man book. Class!

|He'll never lose his marbles again! p.s. the cotton for this came from the gorgeous Bexy who came to visit us from Canada in the summer.|

|Once again most of Dus' haul was toys and games :) he's super happy!|
|The carnage from our pizza lunch!|
|Yes...the boxes do appear to be multiplying!|
Hope you had a great day
