So, I hope you all had a very good Christmas and that the New Year has begun well for you. We had a very quiet and simple “holiday” period, with some sadness because Younger Son was unable to visit because of the rather sudden last minute change to the rules by the Government! We now haven’t seen him for more than a year.
As usual, I will share my Christmas presents here. First of all, I was fortunate to receive this cute “High Tea” necklace and earrings by Pixiewing from Elder Son, and also my favourite Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish from Younger Son. The jewellery is such fun and also highly appropriate, given my addiction to tea! The cleanser and cloths should help get my skin into better condition.
You may remember that my gorgeous Plumes en Fête shawl was partly a birthday and Christmas present from Lovely Husband, so I have yet another excuse to show it here! On my really bad days, I snuggle up in bed with this shawl around my shoulders and I immediately feel lifted from the gloom.
Thinking about my Hermès scarf collection, I am not sure whether to continue to collect the 90cm silks or whether to save up for another hugely expensive shawl. Or, perhaps, I could stop buying scarves altogether. After all, I must have enough by now!
Love and best wishes,
PS. Many thanks to those of you who have sent lovely messages over the holiday period XXX.
