It's two days to Christmas and I'm sitting in the sister in-law's warm kitchen in England. Nice and quiet, except for two noisy kids (mine and her cousin), so not too quiet at all. I'm still fretting about last minute presents and second guessing myself on what I've gotten whom - hoping everyone will be pleased with what they get.
I love coming to the UK for Christmas and catching up with family and friends. It's such a different life from what we live in Hong Kong.
Yesterday, we witnessed hubby's parents renewing their vows after 50 years of marriage. It's amazing to see that kind of commitment and love after so many years. My own parent's celebrated 60 years of marriage this year and I see the same love and devotion in them. It's something admirable to behold, indeed. I hope we will be able to see this kind of future for us four or five decades down the line. At the moment, we are still a year off the ten year mark.
We'll be taking the kids to see Father Christmas tomorrow morning before going for lunch at a friend's place. Both kids are super excited and it's so wonderful to see them get into the Christmas spirit. Hope I'll be able to get good photos off my iPhone.
Speaking of which, I brought my DSLR with me but didn't think of bringing my charger as I had a full battery. Unfortunately, when I went to turn it on, the battery has discharged itself on the flight over. Boo! I will have to deal with iPhone photos for the rest of the holiday. I just hope they will be good enough to scrapbook later on.
Just to finish off, my November layout was again selected as one of the featured layouts for the My Creative Sketches challenge (thanks MCS), so I can again paste a blinkie on my post, as you see above.
Featured Layout - Picture Perfect Fall Day
I brought a very limited amount for scrap tools and materials with me as I have a few layouts to finish before January. Hope I'll be able to work on them and post before the end of the year.
Wishing you all joy and peace for the holidays and very Merry Christmas and happy new year.
Thanks for stopping by,
