We are fast approaching twelfth night and all my decorations will come down then (if they last that long) so this is definitely my last mention of Christmas. We had crackers at Christmas lunch and used the remainder for our family dinner on New Year's Day.
We had bought nice crackers so the little gifts inside were quite useful – well most of them that is. I've been using the pen, there was a mirror compact, a miniature chess set and a pretty bag charm, but none of us could work out what this is?? We thought it might be a bottle opener but it didn't fit any of the standard size bottles.
I wonder if any of you have any idea what it might be? I've photographed it from both sides to try and help with your guesses… any suggestions??
Talking of 'What a Cracker', that could also be applied to the football match I went to see on New Year's Day. My team Crystal Palace were playing Wolves and we were hoping for three points as we had only managed to accrue two points out of a possible nine over the Christmas period. I took my new camera along to take a few shots!
The first is of the Holmesdale Stand to show that my team is well supported – it was quite amusing as a friend of Sophie's was watching the game from there and they were waving to each other from either end of the pitch!
The second photo was of the free kick being taken that scored our third goal and the last picture is of our goalie Julian Speroni about to kick out. He was playing his four hundredth match for us and many people believe him to be the best in the Championship, me included! We won the game 3 – 1 so I was a very happy bunny.
I hope 2013 will be a good year for you all and that you will continue to watch and shop with us here at QVC.
Much love, Julia xx
