Sunday Sevens is a weekly blogging series that rounds up your week in seven photos. Nip over to Nat’s blog for all the info.   The last full week of November was a busy week that marked the middle of the half term but was not yet time to begin the countdown to Christmas. 

1.  Monday meant a training course on the new Key Stage 1 assessment arrangements. It was definitely useful and very informative, and just to be polite I managed to squeeze in a delicious dessert after the ample main course. With cream, obviously. 

 2.  To counteract my substantial lunch I walked 5 miles after work on Monday night. It was cold and rainy, but I felt better for going. Once I’d dried off. 

 3.  My first duo of wines arrived from Aldi Wine Club! That’s right- I am very excited to be part of the 6th panel. 

 4.  After work cuddles with Oliver. 

 5.  I think I’m saving the full details for a separate blog post, but my mum and I spent a lovely Saturday together in Harrogate at the Knitting and Stitching Show.  

 6.  A stormy walk which the dogs loved but during which I struggled to put one foot in front of the other due to the strong wind! It’s becoming much more of a wintry landscape now. 

 7. My first Christmas related chocolate – a (none-Lindt) reindeer.  

 This weekend I’ve made a bit of progress with Christmas gifts, but have also spent an obscene amount on myself due to a combination of Black Friday sales and fabric related bargains in Harrogate. I know I won’t really focus on Christmas until school has broken up, and there’s still plenty to do there to keep me busy. Have a great week.
