Christmas time

I know its a little late but I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! It's been a bit of a strange Christmas this year. And had some very sad news over the holiday. But planning on visiting my family on Monday so that should be nice.

My lovely tree on Christmas morning

wii dance
ok maybe we take Wii dance on broadway game a little too seriously ;) I brought it for Pete as he loves musicals.

I got some great books for Christmas!

V for Vendetta by Alan Moore
The Complete MAUS by Art Spiegelman
The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking
Vive La Revolution by Mark Steel
The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick
Slaughter House Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story by George Orwell

I've started reading V for Vendetta already and am enjoying it, I need to slow down or I'll finish it too quickly hehe.I had heard that if was very different from the film, which I also got for xmas. I'm glad its different as I tend to get bored reading books if I've seen the film version already.

Im planning on doing a new year post over the coming week and maybe a list of all the books I've read this year. But till then I will leave you with a picture of my cat...

Suki could smell her catnip toy under the tree

Snow days

It's been snowing! It was so heavy on wednesday that Pete had to work from home as London does come to a standstill with snow fall. I never saw snow much back in poole being a seaside town, so I get very excited!
To celebrate all this snowy goodness I made some snowman tree hangers :)


Like with the gingerbread men they are back with red or green glitter felt depending on the scarf colour.
Im rather pleased with how these ones turned out, no tricky paint to go wrong! hehe.
I wish I had picked up more than just one sheet of each glitter felt colour as I would like to make more.


Apart from sewing and freezing ;) I started reading "The Odyssey - Homer" I thought that I would find it very hard going but I am really enjoying it! Ok I admit the Greek names are tricky to pronounce but I was really surprised how drawn into the story I am.

Well thats me done for today, I shall leave you with a snowy picture.

I bloody love snow!
