Finished finger puppets!

Sewing Ben’s present and it looking pretty good.

Learning how to sew gussets and it actually not being that tricky!


Putting the presents under the tree ready for tomorrow.
Floating in the pool in the sun with all my family. But no kids.
Dancing around the living room and singing Christmas songs really loudly.


I found a single leaf resting on our balcony. Maybe not that abnormal given that it’s autumn but we live five storeys up and not all that near lots of trees. The thought of it’s journey up here made me smile.

I found a t-shirt at work with ‘I heart Hugh’ on the front. It’s the perfect little Christmas present for my Hugh Grant loving dad.

A friend told me he’s giving an Allotinabox to his girlfriend for her birthday. A present I’ve bought for people in the past. I don’t know if he got the idea from me or somewhere else but I’m just super happy that other people are buying this brilliant little grow-your-own gift. Long live useful presents from fantastic companies!

Ordered my first Christmas presents for people. It feels quite early but hey, you have to buy them at some point right?

Did a bit of sewing DIY on a favourite old top that I’d stopped wearing. And now it’s wearable again, hurrah.

Had a long bath and read my book.
