I'm about halfway through wrapping presents and they're piling up under the tree. My kiddies are spending ages counting how many have their names on... just like my sister and I used to do. Wishing you all lots of magic and wonder too!

advent calendar...day 9

Spotted loads of festive sweaters this weekend. Some looked better than others...
Actually ... they didn't really. They all looked pretty bad to be honest. Only little people can get away with a Christmas jumper. And reindeers...

The weatherman says it might snow in Yorkshire this week. Which means it probably won't. It only snows when the weatherman says it'll be fine and dry...

New York Digs!

We have booked our digs in New York for next May! It took a little while back and forth, we had a checklist,  Location...proximity to Surtex... bathrooms...bedrooms and roof terrace (obviously)

So we found some nice apartments, mailed them and then waited for them to email us back which they didn't, So we looked again found another which ticked all the boxes GONE.

Great so we booked a Hotel instead its a bit posh... which means we will probably all want a whole new wardrobe and nicer luggage too! it is lovely though and it has a roof terrace (obviously)....

I don't know about the other Dotty birds but, at the end of each day, my desk resembles this... a fine balancing act of bits of paper and many cups of tea (but minus the cute birds, sadly haven't got any of them flying about my mac.) I've even started to get my daughter to make me a cup when she gets home from school. I'm all about teaching her important life skills! :-)

little bird house

So we needed a picture on the website....one that was like all of us not just one of us. And as we all live miles away from each other we couldn't just nip round, have a coffee (wine) and rustle up a quickie piccie.
So Lizzie set us a project. She sent us a birdhouse template each with instructions to colour it in and make it look super.
So we did.
This is what we all came up with....



Then we put them together and made this...
Cool! It's on our website now.
It will stay there till Lizzie sets us a new project. Its like being back at art school :-)
