On Sunday, we helped move some of the large furniture and then we visited Gracie who invited us to her pre-Christmas Roast. Boy, did we have great meal and I was so stuffed afterwards. Alex's (Gracie's other half) made a great black forest trifle and Gracie made a great Oreo cheesecake. Thanks darlings for a great meal!!

As promised, I have posted some photos of the goodies we bought at the Wemake Craft Fair:
Here is the colouring pencil holder we brought from Florence. Isn't is lovely.
Here, my Rascal is using the colouring pencils to draw pictures inside the Christmas cards for her friends.

Talking about Greenwich, this is one of my favourite places. I use to go to Chinese School on Sundays where I met Gracie and Big Viv. I got my first job there as a group leader at a summer camp for children. I actually got paid to go ice skating, swimming and on day trips with children, how cool was that.

We stopped by at Jo, Helen and Florence's stand first and they kindly let us put our bulky coats behind the stand. We also met Lisa there too. Before going to the fair, I've been chatting non-stop to my daughter about them. How they all make lovely accessories for children and the home. So she was a little shy when she met them.
The Make Lounge had a Christmas Decoration workshop on the stage, so my daughter (with some help from moi) made a star out of felt and buttons.
