We managed to get out and about yesterday for the first time in ages – we’ve had another set of colds (where do these germs come from???) – this time even the boys got sick, which is a very rare occurrence. It was very chilly but we had a fabulous walk at the Trentham Estate – here are the boys, still looking a bit pale, but on the road to a noisy recovery! Seeing them wrapped up in their cosy scarves reminds me of the rush I had to get them crocheted last Christmas…
This morning we decided to relax at home and do some crafting together. The arrival of a snowflake paper punch from Cox & Cox got me thinking about making snowflake lanterns. So lots of glue, glitter, tissue paper and jam jars later….
These are officially our first decorations of the year – we don’t tend to decorate the house until the week before Christmas – but we couldn’t wait to get these all lit up! Sometimes I feel like we are the only ones to leave it until so near the actual day – is there anyone else out there who doesn’t have their tree up?
The other celebratory note of the day is that Very Berry reached the milestone of 600 likers on Facebook. To say a big thank you, the next 6 people to buy something from my shop will get a little something extra in the parcel.
