My week in pictures for this, the twelfth, #sundaysevens – pop over to Natalie at Threads & Bobbins to see what it’s all about:)

1. Advent Calendar finished in the nick of time! I have a tutorial to post later this week.


2. The Christmas DVDs are coming out! Watching “The Polar Express” with the boys.

4. Fifi and Tess curled up as close as they can get – they definitely sense when you’re in pain.

  1. I love the advent calendar… I’m looking forward to your blog post to find out what you have put in those little pockets! Adam and I had a little chuckle at your husband’s monkey tail too, we both think that he should keep that all year round!
    Sorry to hear you were unwell, hope you are feeling better 🙂

    • It’s all in a good cause though and supposed to make you smile! He had cancer two years ago so men’s health is one of the things he likes to shout about:) I don’t believe in chocolate advent calenders so the ‘gifts’ in this one are slightly different. All will be revealed….

  2. Seeing your sewing Santa gift made me feel like I need to get my skates in for mine! I have a couple of items, but need to give it some further thought…

  3. That moustache is genius!!! He absolutely mustn’t shave it off!

    Anyway, I love the advent calendar. What’s on the little cards in each pocket? You’re going to tell me to wait for the tutorial to find out, aren’t you!

    Congratulations on a successful week. 🙂

    • It certainly has been a conversation starter all month – even total strangers have approached him to donate! I usually start feeling better after the first bucket of painkillers has kicked in about 10am each morning:)

  5. I love the advent calendar too! What sort of treats have you included? I also think the bedside book holder is such a lovely and pretty idea. I’ve also started watching Christmas films, but Polar Express is one I like to save until Christmas Eve 🙂

    • Inserts will be revealed in my post later today:) I’ve made quite a few book holders for people as they’re such a simple but useful thing if you’ve no room for a shelf or table next to the bed. Our favourite Christmas film is, of course, “It’s A Wonderful Life” which we’ve already watched three times in the last couple of weeks! It always makes me blub and I NEVER cry over a film! The boys ask to watch it again and again which is lovely seeing as it was made in 1947 and is black and white:)
