...this week of...

...happiness my children baking together, a quiet week at home, our new table, getting all my Christmas cards made, written and sent, 

...sadness at the commercialisation of Christmas 

...creating salt dough decorations, window stars, biscuits, rock cakes, felted bowls, crystal snowflakes, Christmas cards, a candle holder

...reading Project Based Homeschooling by Lori Pickert

...learning about addition, multiplication, vowels, Burma, the Tudors, earthquakes, plate tectonics

...thinking about all those people who may be struggling to make ends meet at this time of year

...hoping to get my present making finished this week

...looking forward to parties with friends this week


  1. Lovely - it's good to have such moments isn't it?

  2. The commercialisation makes me feel a bit sick. It's nice to have a quiet time at home and avoid it all. You have been busy making things - the perfect time of year for making and baking. Hope you have a good time at the parties.

  3. That does look like a fascinating book ... I'm sure if I was still home-schooling I'd have been reading it.

    And yes, the over commercialism of Christmas saddens me too.

  4. Wow! You have been busy, there is so much to do at this time of year. Especially when you try to make as much homemade as you can xx


Hello......would love to hear from you :)
