Marley and me


We are dog sitting for our friends whilst they have whisked themselves off to ski in Canada {not jealous at all, i promise you}
His name is Marley, he's a stupidly excitable big black dog who spends his time going nuts over a chew toy or new people, climbing on you when you are trying to watch a film, or sleeping - ever so cute, just a little heavy. hehe!

holiday treats

I have spent the last couple of days making and doing to get ready for Christmas.
Here are just a few bits of what i have been up to.

I found the boxes in Hobbycraft, and I got the embellishments from eat.drink.chic and changed the messages on them to make them Christmassy, using the Wendy font that's used their too. And then used some bakers twine to wrap them up.

Yes, in case you didn't know it snowed this weekend.
Proper snow that didn't just turn to mush in an hour.
It ruined all sorts of travel plans, we got stuck in Manchester over the weekend - all the roads back to Sheffield were closed. And it made my beautifully clean car all mucky.
But it makes everything a little bit better!

Jim wouldn't let me drive and shoot pics so I handed over the reigns of the camera and let him take the pics on the way home {it also distracted him from telling me to slow down!}

How beautiful were the Yorkshire Dales after a dusting......

My Christmas wrapping is almost all done {muji gift wrap - don't you just love those boxes....} there are just a couple of late arrivals from Amazon I am waiting on, and some home made treats that need to be bundled up after a lot of baking and sewing by me in the next week!

Now this growing pile of gifts in my room is just waiting for the best bit - to be given out!

This year I am abandoning the royal mail and stamps and buying Christmas cards for Cocodot. I just couldn’t find anything I really loved, beside these old tom foolery cards (and I came across them way too late to get them shipped from the states), and well, i’ve probably left it a little late to post overseas now too.

So, I have been using my free Cocodot e-card allowance and sending out some Christmas cards to people. Saving trees and stamps all at the same time.

What do you think?

{yes, its a little blurry, but that's my computer! Silly snipping tool!}

I am trying to decide if these are a little too much like a bad Christmas jumper, but for my legs;

What do you think?

brrrrrrrrrrr.

December is here; along with frost on the cars and leaves, and the need for legwarmers under my trousers, and snoods and turning my fingerless gloves back into mitts.
I forgot to open my advent calendar this morning though.
I know, Dec 1st and no chocolate for breakfast. Sacrilege.
