I got a parcel in the post this morning, such a lovely surprise. A Christmas parcel, beautifully wrapped, just like you’d imagine a Christmas parcel should be wrapped, with ribbons, tissue paper, twinkling glitter… really not what I’m used to at all. When I grew up, I don’t think we even wrapped our presents. We just presented them in the brown paper bags they were bought in! But this was really lovely. It came from a friend from Poland.
What was it? Well, this is a tradition they have in Poland, people send each other decorations from their Christmas trees – it was a beautiful little house to put on our tree. As you see above, it’s already there.
Bíodh Nollaig mhór mhaith agaibh go léir, a cháirde, tá súil agam go mbíonn am deas agaibh. Go raibh míle maith agaibh as bhúr dtacaíocht i rith na bliana agus go n-éirí go geal libh san bhliain seo chugainn.
Happy Christmas everyone! Thanks for all the comments and ‘likes’.
PS: I’ve just learned that the Office of Public Works has bought my painting from the winter group show at The Olivier Cornet Gallery
