I have been extremely lucky the past week and have won another award "The Versatile Blogger" from the gorgeous EZ from Life....Style'n. Please visit her blog you will enjoy her wonderful and creative posts.
The award requires me to share 7 things about Christmas with you!
This is a traditional Sri Lankan cake that my beautiful Dad (he is Sri Lankan) every Christmas and if I am lucky I get one for my birthday. He has just informed me last Wednesday night when he was over for dinner, that it is about time you made it my darling as I am getting too old and you need to practice. I don't know about him getting too old but I am going to give it ago with his help. It is a very long process to create this magical cake!
Wrapping presents, I absolutely love wrapping presents! Mum always got me to wrap her presents for her!
Buying decorations, there is not a year that goes by that I don't buy a few decorations for the house or tree.
I bought this gorgeous snowflake on the left of the picture from "Have you met Miss Jones", for Mia's teacher.
Christmas Markets - Frankfurt!
The Christmas Markets in Frankfurt, we visited 5 years ago. Absolutely magical, my children loved them and of course so did I.
Santa and the Myer Windows
Visiting Santa with Mia, my nieces and my sister. It brings back so many happy memories of when I was a child.
Going to Kmart with my children to get 3 gift tags off the Wishing tree. We then go shopping and they choose gifts to go under the Wishing Tree.
I remember when I was young we would always visit my Nana on Christmas Day. She lived about an hour away from us. We would have to go through Melbourne City to get to her. The number of homeless people I would see on Christmas Day would sadden me and has never left me. I am so very thankful. I have a roof over my and my children's head.
I have saved the best for last, I absolutely love spending Christmas with my family they bring me all the joy and happiness I could ever wish for!
The next part of the award is for me to pass it on to four more bloggers!
