Valentine’s Notebook

Valentine's Notebook


We had a little crafting session this week. As Valentine’s Day is fast approaching we used the theme of hearts to inspire us.   We bought some notebooks from Tiger. At £1 for 3 it was a bargain. We used a pencil with a rubber on the end as our printing tool. We mixed a number of different shades of pink. And we were off.

A sweet notebook to offer to your loved ones or a place to write love notes.

Have a fun Valentine’s

Milly’s Door ~ Christmas

Christmas was lovely this year as my minou really understood the concept of Santa. “We need to buy a chimney mama” she exclaimed one morning as her little thoughts had worked out that our house is chimneyless.

She reminded me that we needed to leave a drink for Santa and thoughtfully wanted to welcome him with homemade angel and star cheese straws. She wrote a note explaining the reindeer had a carrot and that she had prepared this veritable feast. Sweet girl.


Milly has been preparing for the festive period too.


She even left a little gift and tiny card for Minou on Christmas day


How it all began…

Enjoy your little urban fairies my friends.

Tonight my brother will be half munching on carrots~check, I need to step into someone’s shoes: Santa’s footprints ~ check,


[Sneaky reindeer came in to enjoy that carrot and Santa left a thank you note, polite Santa! I’m sad that the glitter doesn’t show up in the photo~ it looks darling]

If I’m quick enough I’ll get to enjoy that glass of whiskey, so on that note… a demain mes amis!


Christmas Eve Tradition

Christmas Eve! Oh Christmas Eve! One of my favourite days in the calendar.  The excitement, the anticipation.

After dinner, with tummys full,  in the quiet of the evening my dinky doo gets to open her Christmas Eve gifts.

A new pair of Christmas pyjamas


A book to read that evening [this year,  the 12 days of Christmas] and her stocking to hang ready for Santa


In new snuggly pyjamas, a drink can now be poured for Santa and a carrot left ready to be nibbled.

Oh Christmas Eve! We are ready.
