Back to trivia

Well, I managed to get Ben walked in the dry this morning, he came to Neath with me and we had a stroll along the canal side. There were lots of joggers about and a few dog walkers for Ben to meet and greet. There were also loads of exciting smells to keep his nose firmly ground wards.

I did leave him in the car while I wasted time on a fruitless search, it will wait until the New Year now.

I got caught in a down pour but luckily was not too far from the car.
This afternoon has seen me putting a few more decs up.




The Round of Robins has a home, and a little bit of colour.



The carol singers have come out of hibernation.
Along with the skeletal trees.





I have some very soft berry lights up with the crochet garland.





My skinny Minny tree is just about done, I have 2 very special Angels on it this year, you can see one on the right.

I have to get the rest up and would like to finish the job this week, next week will just be about Fran, and lots of cooking.I will be putting the gifts under the tree on Christmas Eve. This year I will have an embarrassingly huge pile, thanks to the Santa Sack Swap and the 12 Days of Christmas Swap that I joined. It was fun and I hope to repeat it next year, I already have some ideas whizzing round my head. 

I while ago Rachel Radiostar offered a  give away on her blog, this was for a book, Trust in me, by Sophie McKenzie. It went to Louise, who blogs at At Home with Mrs H and she read it and passed it on to me.
I have finally found time to read and enjoy and am happy to pass it along again. Anyone interested drop a comment to that effect and if more than one wants it I will do the usual hattish thingy.

Oops, it seems that some sneaky somebody has crept in and drunk my tea, so I am off to make another cup and set a mouse trap ;-)
