My fantastically-named new-to-me 1970s Feminella coat has had an outing, and was declared fabulous by all who saw her.
She's a keeper!
It was so cold yesterday, even I lost the will to browse around Chesterfield flea market, and resorted to a therapeutic cappuccino in Cafe Nero to get warm.
A pearl button popped off this cardigan last time I wore it, which I thankfully caught and put somewhere safe, ready to sew back on.
Do I remember where I put it?
I do not.
Lady Fanny needs servants to keep track of lost buttons on her behalf.
The fur collar which darling Vix made me was just the thing to warm up my neck without overwhelming the smart lines of the coat.
Littlest got hold of the sunglasses, hence the smudgy lenses...
Can't be too mad with her though, she is an angel, after all.
Kylie, who is a bit of an angel too, sent her these gorgeous owl Christmas decorations. That child does very well from my blogging, lucky little bugger.
We were mystified when Littlest informed us that Baby Jesus had older brothers or sisters. "He's the youngest of four children", she stated, in a most authoritative manner.
It transpired she was learning to sing Mary's Boy Child for her Christmas concert, and had misheard the words, thinking they were Mary's fourth child...
Still, I can't really complain about Littlest receiving gifts - Max, fellow South Yorkshire girl now relocated to New Zealand, has sent me my very own hand-printed personalised tea towel and a handmade Christmas cracker.
Both will be utilised on Christmas day, thank you so much, Max!
Those who missed my post about the Terrible Incident of the Killer Cat and the Guinea Pig can catch up here.
Charlie is certainly no angel.
