Ho! Ho! Ho! Its Getting Nearer!

The Advent calendar is out and the countdown begins!  Once we reach December, despite the stresses of getting ready for Christmas, the inner child in me kicks in - I love it!  Out comes my favourite videos/dvds

The Disney songs we have had since the children were little people and I get a huge lump in my throat when I first watch it (which I do every year) but then it makes me very happy indeed, I don't know what I will do when the tape wears out!  The other must see early in December is Its a Wonderful Life - I have loved this film since I was a little girl and still enjoy it enormously - it makes you really think about what is important in life, and with the current world recession, in fact is really relevant this year. Whenever I hear a bell ring I still think of the Angel who has just got its wings!!!! Aahhhhhh!!  Priceless.  I have some other films I just have to watch, but they are for later in December and I will share them then.

I try not to put the decorations up too early, usually around the 13th because that is hubbys birthday so we do it to make a fuss of him. 

I have finished the hat and scarf for one of my friends for Christmas

I hope she will like it, it is in random colour wool called Crofter by Sirdar and is really soft.  I have enjoyed making some presents this year and it has felt like a lot more meaning and effort has gone into them rather than just buying something. 

Thank you for all the lovely comments about the Summer Garden Blanket yesterday, made my day... I love to read your comments.

Oh well, I hope your all enjoy your day and speak soon xx


  1. I just loved that Disney tape we had it many moons ago and the kids played it so much that it broke...what memories...I think I will see if I can get a dvd of it if it is still available:-) I love the look of that Crofter wool I'll have to see if someone will get me some for Christmas!

  2. Beautiful Kim, Hope your friend isnt a blogger! REally lovely colours and you've made a fantastic job as usual. Yes I agree the videos come out. Of course our favourites are Grandpa, The Snowman, Father Christmas. There's also a Steven Speilberg film about Santa, (can't remember the name). These come out evey year.

    Anyway, sorted my landline out. Apparently the knob on the radiator was leaking into the socket box on the wall at the side of the radiator. This had stopped the landline working!

    So cold out, just been to the shops. I must do things for Christmas instead of all this crocheting!
    (Difficult as you can imagine!).
    Hugs and Love Suex
    Love the scarf.

  3. Love the scarf and hat - your friend should be very happy.
    I also love "It's a wonderful Life" and "Miracle on 34th Street" - a couple of great Christmas oldies

  4. Hi! It's so nice to meet you! Thank you for your very kind comment on our post. The cap and scarf you crocheted ate beautiful and I know that your friend will love them. I look forward to following you also! Have a nice day! Twyla

  5. Did I hear you? Singing Christmassongs?
    By the way: there is software to put your tapes on dvd. If you want to save them it can be an option.

    Your hat an scarf are lovely. Lucky friend!
