My day was a quiet one. We had lunch in Robe, S.A. with family and then home in the evening where I fell asleep on the couch. It was the perfect day for me considering how exhausted I have been. We don’t really do presents in my family, except for the little ones. I am very close to my cousin, Alison who turned 5 just before Xmas and I love spoiling her rotten, so this was as good a time as any. I did not expect to get anything from her, but she gave me the best present that I could ask for.
She gave me my gift and was so excited she had to help me unwrap it and before I could even work out what it was, she grabbed it out of the wrapping to hold it up for me. She had done a self-portrait and under her instruction, her mum appliqued it onto a patchwork cushion. I couldn’t believe it, I loved it.
So even though I wasn’t expecting anything for Xmas, I felt like I got the best gift of all.
I hope you all felt as special over the holiday season as I have.
