Boxing Day

It's tradition to go for a walk on Boxing Day. Can feel like hard work to begin with, but always a good idea in the end. Sometimes you have to run just so you can feel your toes.

My very own yule log

Here it is!
I asked the man of the house what he thought of it. 
He said it wasn't as bad as he had expected it to be.

High praise indeed. 

I am trying not to let it go to my head. 

But it's difficult when you're dancing on air. :)'

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Every now and then I just like to sing this line out loud.

I don't know the rest of the song, but in any case, that bit pretty much sums things up at freckleface HQ.
My boyfriend was worried I was going a bit over the top with the decorations but actually I don't think there is enough, so I am forced out into the cold on foraging trips for more tinsel and emergency baubles.
Favourite Christmas cards so far, from my friends at Eloise R and Pango Productions.

I still have to make my yule log!

All of these doors were spotted in Shaftesbury in Dorset. A really pretty town with lots of lovely buildings and quite an arty feel to it. 

Well that was the sense I got from peering into everyone's windows! :)

Shaftesbury, Dorset

A famous scene here in the UK. We had a trip out a couple of weeks ago, just before the snow arrived.

New scarf

Here's one of the lovely presents I got for my recent birthday. A Donna Wilson scarf.

Me and foxy are a team now, rarely parted.

It came beautifully wrapped with a free cotton bag. And look who was on the accompanying card. THE KING!!!!!

Top birthday package I reckon :)
One particularly naughty friend who happens to be a couple of years younger than me and likes to make sure I remember that fact, sent me this card. Inside she put, "I saw this and thought of you".

Ho Ho Ho!

If I ever get to be that age, I sure hope I will be like her.

Feeling a bit crafty

I have started a tapestry. It is destined to live on the seat part of a dining room chair.

Can you tell what it is yet?
I'll give you some clues...

Ooh, suddenly I feel all foxy! ;)

A stay in London

On my recent trip to London, I stayed with my younger sister in her lovely apartment. It has a very serene feel with lots of lovely space.
