new bedding set from the Secret Linen Store, which may I add is so incredibly soft, that it's almost difficult to stop stroking it (weird huh?). Little B's parents are staying in the spare room over Christmas and because we love playing host, new bedding is always a win (and even more of a win when it's packaged so beautifully that you debate leaving it like that in the airing cupboard...!) and by slowly replacing those floral bedsheets we used for guests, it makes for a very happy Little B's papa.
And although I mentioned how much of a chore wrapping presents normally are, maybe this time wasn't so bad. Having a short break after every present wrap, before finishing it up with a pretty gingham bow and a tasty Lindt treat, and sipping on hot tea whilst staring out the window (or stopping those pesky kitties from fighting the wrapping paper...) made that afternoon a pretty chilled one. And one that has me counting down the days till those gingham bows will be no more. Next year I'll be opting for tin foil...!
