Christmas countdown and sticky fingers!

Hello, how is everyone? Thank you for all the well wishes, I have my girl back home again. She had a wonderful time dry skiing, canoeing, rock climbing, shelter building, night orienteering and more! Not bad for a primary school trip! Unfortunately she was very poorly when she came home, but is feeling much better now :)

Is everyone busy making preparations for Christmas? I've been busy making some bits and pieces, though unfortunately my to do list is far longer than my actually achieved list (and I have a feeling it may always be that way)!

I bought a gorgeous little owl yesterday, I just wish I could have another one facing the other way as they would make such a lovely pair.


We've put our wreaths up near to Imogen's countdown (27 days, though only a couple until she can have her advent calendars).



Imogen was helping me with another project I'm doing, and Daddy decided that she was missing out an important childhood experience... Do you remember getting sticky fingers at school using glue and peeling it off like a second skin? Well Andy went the whole way and painted Imogen's hand with glue...


I'm afraid I was a bit of a spoilsport and it was washed off before it had a chance to dry properly (because he coated it with so much) because it was teatime!


Maybe another time :)

Take care

  3. I remember doing that! I still love peeling the dried glue out of the pots when we've done crafting - it's so satisfying!

    Love you owl. We are crafting frantically here to complete hand made presents. My to-do list seems to grow rather than shrink. x

  5. It sounds like Imogen had the best time on her trip. Daniel and Eleanor went on similar trips when they were in primary school, we're so lucky really as so many schools don't take them on residential trips. I'm sorry she came home poorly, but at least it's out of the way before Christmas I suppose. I love your little owl and agree that a pair would look great together.
