Day 8 of JYC


I seemed to have slowed down on the knitting front but that is probably down to JYC - I don't mind! I have started the Green stocking and I am about a third of the way through, it's a boy version and has cars on it! You can't really see them on this piccy but I will post more next week.

Day 8
The Christmas photos are building up quite rapidly and it is only the 9th December! I had trouble limiting myself to these as I have had lots of Christmas-themed days out lately!


I love this tag in the middle, I was inspired by Ali Edwards and thought I would give it a go. I'm already planning more!


....................

Ooh I have to share this before I go:


Look at the size of those slabs of fudge! One is Belgian chocolate and the other is traditional toffee *yum*. We have kind of started another new tradition (you may see this popping up again tomorrow!), I blogged about going to Canterbury last year and buying some yummy fudge from the fudge kitchen and it just so happens we have been there again this year - we only seem to go in this shop in December! They are enormous pieces so hopefully it will take a while to eat them - I seem to be eating so much at the moment and I haven't even made the mince pies yet!

Speaking of festive goodness, yesterday's advent Christmas film was Die Hard!


Now I know it isn't actually a Christmas film but this is my Hubbie's choice, He decided it was worthy for the calendar as it was set at Christmas and a lot of festiveness appears.......It is a good film, so who am I to argue?
