i’m quite fond of a spot of frost. love the way it leaves everything with a touch of sugar coating.
whilst sitting on the living room floor this morning making a start on our christmas crackers, you can read how to make those here, my mind wandered off to cutlery and napkins. i was mumbling to myself, when Mr HPMcQ asked what i was babbling on about. “well, i was thinking that maybe instead of napkin rings i could make some little jackets to keep the cutlery and napkin together” he laughed and gave me a squeeze “i love you”
so whilst he popped out to sainsburys, i made some jackets.
yay it’s december! if your household has a 6-year-old like ours, then you have probably been on count down since halloween. how many days mummy?
so we have buckled, and the tree has gone up and the christmas craft has begun!
with a flurry of 40th birthdays winging their way from all directions, trying to find special individual gifts for your besties can be a tall order. i’ve known claudine for 22 years now and in 22 years you’ve pretty much covered every gift known to mankind. what was i going to get her? not a scooby. until i spotted a tweet

and there you have it, bingo.
so yesterday our halloween prep started, when mr HPMcQ brought home a pumpkin. we got our carve on. however this just wetted ronnie’s appetite for more halloween preparations and he wanted even more pumpkins, so when he’d gone to bed i popped out and snuck two more into the living room, ready as a surprise in the morning.
