We've been fairly busy this week, a few parties including a lovely Winter Solstice party at Roxy's house.
She made some yummy croissanty mincemeat twisty things. I have managed to find some dough since and I'll give it a go too. Last minute shopping and Happy Feet yesterday and a search for fairy lights that work today. That failed. Our old ones died yesterday so bought some more and they died after a few seconds. *touchwood* we still have some on the tree that work.
Pressies are all built (that Tardis set was a bugger, plastic thingys everywhere) and wrapped. Buzzcocks, pringles and wine...so I'm off now!

Just a few christmas tunes I've picked out. Best not to watch number 3 if in the vicinity of small ears though unless you fancy being asked what a "chuff mountain" is at an inappropriate festive moment! Once I heard this version of In Dulce Jubilo it was never the same again. It's hard not to sing along when you hear it in a shop!
I usually like to find some festive covers. There's a whole blog just for Last Christmas covers and you can find a few gems on the Coverville podcasts.

I read this account of life in SWF during the war on the BBC site a while ago now and while flicking through a book of old pics I found the shop. It was actually built by some relatives on my husband's side of the family.
It's now a private home that I walk past everyday on the school run. Nice to see there was once a time when Asda didn't rule.
They are knocking down a fair few old buildings these days so I might try and capture a few before they go.
