Well it's the first of December, the day when we can start to talk about CHRISTMAS!!! The children received their advent calendars this morning. A nativity one for Alfie who is obsessed with the nativity right now. They are practising their nativity at school, he is to play the Angel Gabriel (my little Anakin-Skywalker-turning-to-the-dark-side is to be the Angel Gabriel, hahahaha) and they are holding it in the barn at The Big Sheep, such fun! Lizzy had The Snowman, which immediately prompted Alfie to dig out the video which he watched (for the 1,000th time) with Lizzy. This is one of the most beautiful little films and I remember taping it from the telly when I was expecting my first child, now, some 17 years later, my little ones are still entranced and I have to say I adore it too. Jasmine had the Cadbury's one, at her request, 'there's nothing like Cadbury's at Christmas mum' she said. I have to agree, I'm a Cadbury's girl myself.

I am finding it difficult to blog at the moment, time just doesn't allow. I don't take blogbatticals, some days I write, some days I don't, but life is just so hectic right now that I barely have time to straighten my hair! One of the reasons for not being on the computer is that I have been sewing little things for Christmas, which if you want to you can see here. If you are related to me, DO NOT LOOK (yes Roxy, that means you!) I have also been working on my website which still has a few teething problems but will be up and running soon no doubt, watch this space.
In my mind there is nothing nicer than handmade goods and there are some wonderful places to buy Christmas cards and gifts on the internet. Apart from the wonderful Lily and Agathe, of which you are all aware by now, (unless you have been living on the moon!), there are beautiful cards to be bought from Red Flannel Elephant, designed by our very own Gretel, Cherry Menlove has a wonderful site selling cottage chic handmade items and of course Niki has some beautiful reworked vintage handmade items that are just adorable.
