Will the real Rudolf please step forward

Couldn't resist taking a photo of the gang before they are distributed to their new homes. Just a little bit more sewing to do this week - crochet hook roll and a Union Jack cushion - and I can give my machine a rest until after Christmas.

So on the agenda this week we have a gingerbread house to bake and construct, childrens' gifts to be wrapped and cards to be posted. Aside from this, I need to get the staircase painted so that it can be beautifully adorned with sparkly lights, balls and chrimbo cards.

Can't wait for Friday when we 'get this party started'...birthday breakfast at Claire's!!! what a treat!!! and end of term drinky poos at Lorraines. Enjoy! x

Well, the kids finally got their wish as West Leigh was closed today. (This hasn't happened since 2003 apparently!) We were invited out to meet the masses on Marine Parade for a spot of sledging and some snowball throwing. However, 20 minutes outside in the cold and it was all too much for Mimi, who was by now in tears. Cakes was also keen to return home to get his Black Ops fix. I can't believe an 'outdoorsy' girl like me has produced such wimpy kids. Dr Green has a lot to answer for.....oh yeah!!

Back indoors, warmed up and telly on, I had an opportunity to tuck into some sewing. Muchos cushion making at the mo to fulfil some orders that came in at the Vintage Fair last Saturday. I've attached some photos and would appreciate any comments. Ta.

Mimi baked a lovely lemon cake this afternoon, as well as home made pizza for tea. We made a (unicorn?!) snowman in the front garden, followed by the lighting of candles and dancing around the living room to cheesy Christmas hits. Just waiting for Dr Green to return home now with a bottle of fizz.

School closed again tomorrow. Oh joy of joys. Brrrrr!
