Christmas 2013-the post-match analysis

Ooooh, this is a bit like Match of the Day. Only without Gary Linekar. Or any football…. OK, so is today Twelfth Night, or was it yesterday? I can never work it out. But whatever, I hope you have de-decked your halls, and removed the holly (and the tree and the fairy lights). If you … Continue reading

Last Minute Gifts #1

Last Minute Gifts #1

OK, so because I have been less than organised this year, most of the presents we are giving are still being made, which I am aware is less than helpful for anyone else who was hoping to find some ideas here for things to make themselves. So big grovelling apologies. No real excuses. Just a … Continue reading

Charity Shop Fairies

Charity Shop Fairies

Someone on Twitter once mentioned to me (as you do) that there were such things as Charity Shop/Car Boot/General Thrifting Fairies, who can choose to smile down on you and bless you with a multitude of pre-loved goodies.

It’s the end of the academic year, in case you hadn’t noticed. And this year, BigSmall is graduating. From Pre-School. It is quite a big moment in a Small person’s life. Or actually, more of a big moment in a Small person’s mummy’s life. I am more than a little sad, that he is moving … Continue reading

Spread a little love…

We met up with some friends at the weekend, who have been having a rough time. (You may remember me making brownies, as an emergency present for some friends having a rough time-this is still the same friends. It is all a bit pants) And I wanted to take a little pressie to help cheer … Continue reading

So what did Santa bring..?

So what did Santa bring..?

I know you are all desperate to find out exactly what Santa bought me… Hubby, who is bound by “The Rules” of My Make Do and Mend Year, did very well, and made all of my pressies! Desk tidy-I think as a subtle hint/vain attempt to get me to keep the study/office/sewing room a bit … Continue reading

Christmas Makes-Lavender Heat Bags

This is the second Christmas make I am going to share with you. I should say, friends and family should look away now if they want any kind of surprises this Christmas! Just in case they are still looking, I am not going to say who the gifts are for (that will obviously confuse them…) … Continue reading

The Big Christmas Plan…

Christmas is coming. You may have noticed. People seem to have great delight in giving you an update on just how many days there are left until Christmas. This is usually fine. But this year, the year of our Make Do and Mend Christmas, Christmas is going to involve even more work than normal. And … Continue reading
