December 18th

In our house Christmas tea involves a ham.
A proper ham, one we buy and cook ourselves, and the carve off in to huge chunks.
To go with the salty ham you really need pickles, and these look just the job.

By now it's far too late for good from America to make it over to us, however the UK equivalent might be able to help you out.

This Snowflake is adorable and only costs £1... what can you get for £1 now, specially for something that's handamde.

This baby snowman is about the size of the snowman I usually get to make each year. Now I've posted this of courses this year will no doubt see a repeat of the last 2 years where we get so much snow that we're all sick of it!

It may now be reaching the time of year where the panic is setting in... you planned to make all your Christmas presents and all of a sudden the size of the task you set yourself is dawning on you.

Lot's of big supermarkets now sell value versions of plain white mugs, by buying a few pottery pens ( this site is pretty good), and searching for embroidery designs on Flickr, then copying the design on to the mug, you can end up with some cheap, personalised Christmas presents!

By now I've reached the time of year where a stiff drink is on order. I've probably not made all my Christmas presents, the kids are going crazy and the weather has probably driven me mad.

How about a little Christmas Spirit

If you lack the skill to knit my latest design (though it's honestly not that hard....) then maybe you can sew your own... ok at this point in the year maybe sewing your own might be a little ambitious too. How about buying one of thee delightful stockings?

This photo is from a few days ago. I nearly always put up paper snowflakes at this time of year. They're cheap and very easy to make, I even made boyfriend do some during the snow days as he was starting to drive me a little crazy!
