I went to the school today to watch the second of the Nativities that my granddaughters were in and when I got back, there was a parcel waiting for me in the porch. On opening it, I found it contained two hand knitted face cloths made from bamboo and a bar of lovely rose soap. This was from my friend Michelle who lives in New Zealand, Mickle's Pickle
I was thrilled to bits and will thank her personally by email.
I am amazed that knitting wool can be made from bamboo! I will be cooling my fevered brow with them soon Michelle.
Such a thoughtful thing to do.

Nativities have changed considerably these days with bits and pieces added on here and there. This scene was about busy bakers at Christmas time making all the Christmas puddings and cakes. It was a lovely play and eventually the Nativity did come into it in the end.
The other granddaughter was a sheep racing around the shepherd's legs as they were visited by the angel.
It is marvellous to go to these Nativities. I wouldn't normally miss them for the world. I was so pleased that I didn't have to this year because of illness and hospital appointments.
