Rather remarkably I have managed
to keep up with my self imposed
Advent Card challenge
(I'll post the last couple tomorrow).
I'm aware that artistically they're not
exactly amazing, BUT this challenge has
made me do something creative every day
and so, for that reason, it has been a
success for me :)
|(Coffee with Friends)|
I managed to catch up with a couple of friends,
dashing from one venue to the other!
But it was worth it.
|(Christmas Jumper Day)|
On Christmas Jumper Day
(when it's cool to be really cheesy),
Hope nabbed mine for the day, typical!
It has a Christmas tree with pom-pom
baubles. Fun (and very cheesy!).
Today was the annual viewing of Elf
in the Urbani household :)
It is the best Christmas film ever.
|(The Christmas Tree comes home)|
Luke came out with me and helped me
choose a Christmas Tree.
It is the BEST Christmas Tree we have ever had.
It remained naked for rather a long time
and finally got decorated at the end of the week.
|(Hope's Presentation Evening)|
We returned to Hope's old school for
her iGCSE presentation evening.
The guest speaker was
what a breath of fresh air she was
in the fuddy-duddy atmosphere of
the very old fashioned school :D
|(2nd Class Post)|
Hope and I both had our hair cut -
yikes, paying for it
brought tears to my eyes!
|(Decopatching my head)|
I haven't yet finished Decopatching my head
(well, not MY head, you understand, but a
paper mache reindeer head!).
I'd better get my skates on or it won't be
ready in time for this Christmas!
|(I am a Taxi!)|
Hope was invited to a party
and she really wanted to go
but it was in a place inaccessible
by public transport
(added to which, she was going dressed
as the Joker from Batman,
so might have attracted
some unwanted attention).
Grant was working so it fell to me to act as
In the pouring rain and buffeting wind.
An hour there,
an hour back,
an hour there again to collect,
an hour back.
She had better be grateful
for the rest of her life.
Thank you for reading,
I'll be back tomorrow with the last of
the Advent Cards.
ps I am trying to decide between two
online courses to do next year -
