Favourite things Friday...

This has to be my most favourite time of the year. I just LOVE Christmas and the promise of having a better new year next year! :) Everything feels so fresh and the ability to reinvent yourself (& your life) in the coming year almost takes my breath away. Nothing feels so terrible, the sun is SHINING boy have we had the best weather the last couple of days! and I just feel good. My family is around me, my stomach is full and I've even been able to spoil myself in the Boxing Day sales by buying 2 new pairs of shoes!!! my life is complete - hehehe!

Although 2008 has been fairly awful for me won't go into all the gory details I am happy to say my life feels complete. I have a wonderful husband go Mr Sew-Funky! and three very gorgeous young daughters who are growing into three beautiful young women. :) What could be better than that? Well, I guess there are other good things... Some newly fledged friendships - Lianne, Cathy, Carol-Ann and some really good old ones too! :) So whilst this year has been difficult it has also been a really good one too! I discovered a real love for craft this year, bought a new sewing machine, knitted A LOT of dishcloths and made a lot of friendships through blogging Paisley Jade & CurlyPops have to be my number one fav's! My girls all got fantastic end of year reports from school and I'm so pleased that they are beginning to love learning and are really beginning to enjoy their education!

It's why I really feel satisfied right now - long may it last... hmmmmm!

To cut this post into just one favourite thing is hard, but what I've chosen did encompass a couple of my favourite things into one... baking, friendship, Christmas traditions to name a few...

My first ever gingerbread house...

I hope making these will become a new tradition in my house. It was so much fun putting it all together, thanks for suggesting it (and helping me with it) Lianne! :)

Now we just need to eat it!!!! YUM YUM!
