December 24th

Every year I use the same video as the final post in my advent calendar. It's my little way of reminding myself that it's not all about me, and that sometimes more is less.

If you can, maybe give a Christmas present to someone less fortunate than us, if you're feeling lazy the p/hop widget is just to the right, there aren't many charities who I unconditionally trust to spend my money wisely but MSF is one of them.

December 23rd

We'll just be coming up to the finale of one of my favourite TV shows, Strictly Come Dancing. Every year a bunch of celebrities learn to dance, each year some of them are always dreadful, some start off poor, and get better, and other are stars from the beginning.
One of my favourite ever dances is from Series 2 by Jill Halfpenny and Darren Bennet, just watching it makes me smile!

Christmas is a time to be merry, this justifies the consumption of many festive tipples in our house. In order for many tipples to be enjoyed at their best they need to be chilled, and why not chill them in a pretty way!

Go on treat yourself, put your feet up, read a book, listen to the radio. Make a mug of hot chocolate, the proper stuff, made with milk, none of this instant rubbish!

Hot chocolate with marshmallows!

December 20th

Its not too late to add some more decorations... in my opinion a house isn't decorated enough until you can't move for the bling!

This door wreath is lovely, unfortunately I can't show you how lovely as I can't copy any of the images to show you...
However it could be a rather useful thing to do with all your yarn scraps.

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a little Wallace and Gromit!
Pass the cheese.
