Sunday Sevens // 49 2015

With one week left before we finish for the Christmas holiday, I can safely say I’m ready for a break. This last week was exceptionally busy, so much so that I went four consecutive days without walking the dogs – unheard of! 

If you’d like to put together your own Sunday Sevens, please visit Nat to find out everything you need to know. 

I have had a couple of chances to try out my new camera this week, as you’ll hopefully see from a couple of the photos below.

1. My class made snow globes as part of a blogging challenge I organised. I was really pleased with how well they turned out.

2. I continued working on handmade Christmas gifts – still plenty to do! 

 3. Took my class on a visit to the local church.
4. I resigned myself to the fact that last year’s Christmas (edible) crackers are now fit only for the bin. 

 5. Wilfie, whilst out on a walk.


6. It was my Christmas work party on Friday night, for which I wore a RTW dress – that I have previously worn for a work christmas party a year or two ago! No one seemed to remember!  7. A frosty walk on Sunday morning.

My house is still completely free of Christmas decorations, but I’m loving looking at all the trees and decorations in windows as I pass. I’m hoping to walk more this week as I’ve been missing it so much, and I’m looking forward to next week’s Sunday Sevens, which will be brought to you from the comfort of the Christmas holidays. Have a lovely week.

  1. I see Wilf’s looking handsome as ever and loving the snowglobes, I know I said it before, but I do think you do great projects with the children! My daughter would have loved your classes!

  2. Enjoy the uncluttered look for a little longer. Our house has had a thorough Christmas make over this weekend, there is stuff everywhere…. Already itching to take a bit of it down again…. Have a more relaxed final week 🙂

  3. Gosh! That’s a proper frost! At least the weather should get better for getting out there with your walking boots on. Not long now til you break up!!!! 😀

Yesterday I spent most of the day at this beautiful old hotel. It even had a doorman. •

#run #running #rungry #runuptoChristmas #weekend #dogjog #runningwithdogs #runnersofinstagram Up and out early this morning, transporting players to a football match in the middle of the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside. The sun shone so brightly it was hard to see, but that’s not something to complain about this far into November. The team played well and they won 🙌🏼
