Hey! How are we today?
My happies have a theme this week. As always joining in with Jen
A Spot Of Christmas Crafting
So I bought some cards and envelopes with a view to Olly making his nearest and dearest home made Christmas cards. What was I thinking? He made a Christmas tree instead. He was very proud of his pompom baubles.I'm still working on the cards.....
All Trimmed Up
We've decorated early here. Usually I wait until the weekend that the children break up from school. But tomorrow night is Book Group, and it is our Christmas party. So I have trimmed up early in honour of that occasion. I am also making mulled wine. I do like the smell of the tree and all the festive bits and bobs. I have pared it back this year - no twiggy displays, no festive soft toys. Oh and another happy is my new decoration for the tree. The heart was £1.00 from Wilkinson's. Which by the way could have an entire week's worth of happy devoted to it, so fantastic is that store. Do you have a happy and cheap store that makes you giddy with glee every time you enter?
Cheating At Making Christmas Cookies
I love to bake. I love baking with Olly. But sometimes I don't love baking with Olly. But I thought I ought to do some festive baking with Olly. But I didn't really want to. Because frankly I couldn't be fagged with it all. So hoorah for pre-baked festive ginger snaps (with holes for ribbon if you so wish) from those thoughtful people at IKEA. And hooray for squeezy icing in a tube. And hooray for various sprinkles. Olly had a ball. There was no mess and no fuss. And they tasted rather good too. I mean, really, why make life hard for yourself?
Santa Hat On The Beach
It's not the best quality, as it was taken with my phone. But it doesn't get any better right now than a walk across a deserted beach with three mad dogs and a boy in a Santa hat. Oh and we also saw seals in the surf.
Can I chuck in one more? I have jet washed decking and new fence panels! Literally beyond happy. Olly and I played football late this afternoon, without fear of slipping and breaking our necks. Life is sweet.
And that, my friends, was the happy.
A big hello to new followers. It's great to have you along for the ride. I am very aware that I seem rather manic of late. It's a manic time. I do feel a bit jittery to be honest. Good jitters. But jitters all the same. Do you?
