Here's December! Lots going on this month! If you know me, you're probably sick of hearing me belly ache about this weather. I hate hate hate it. I hate being cold. I hate getting wet. I mostly hate the lack of daylight, so much so I have invested in a SAD lamp to try and alleviate the bad mood I get into every winter. Yes. I'm sure I have SAD. I live for the summer. So I'm definitely a Christmas scrooge.
Anyway, trying to see the positives, there are lots of lovely December parties to look forward to, I'm looking forward to having my sister home from London for a couple of weeks. She'll be coming with us to take the kids to see Santa, and celebrate Jack's 5th birthday! (5! FIVE!) Jack is a little Joseph in his first nativity play this year, so we're excited about that too.
There isn't much to do when it's bucketing outside (here I go again) so we've been in Granda Bill's cattle shed the past couple of weekends. Just bumming around. Probably getting in his way. Sure, what else is there to do on a Sunday afternoon? It gets us out of the house. Noah thinks cows are just about the funniest thing that has ever existed.
Check out this portrait of Mammy and Daddy that Jack shot... not the one above, funny guy, see below! Pretty good, right? He's gonna be a wee photographer!
Last Christmas I bought a place on a screen printing course for my arty husband. He only got round to enrolling last month. The course has finished now, but I'm in love with some of his screen prints, including these prints of Jack and Noah. Aren't they sensational? He's such a talent. These are proudly hanging in my hall. Those big smiles get me through these short dark days!
Here's what we've been getting up to:
1. Wedding guests- wee matching suits!
2. Ho ho woof
4. Bay trees
5. Santa! I know him!
6. Nana and Noah
7. Jack and the beautiful bride
