I wrote this one last night but have been saving it. On adapting children's books for the stage

I wrote about the secret to a happy marriage

Hi Lucy, I'm going to have to read DS's copy of Skellig because of you!

Hooray! I feel a bit evangelical about it, making it my mission to get everyone to read it.

Morning! I've blogged about trying to get back to normal after a break up - all thoughts greatly appreciated!

Getting back to the ordinary again

This week Silent Sunday is back where it started. This is a good linky to join in with if you like photography

Good morning,

I have written a new post about advent calendars and how not to inadvertently traumatise your child, bad mouth squirrels and nearly cause a kick-off at Customer Services. Seems so silly when you say it ouloud....

We really did visit an enchanted woodland on Friday evening

After years of meaning to get round to it, I made a fabric advent calendar for my children...

Science-y one from me this week trying to get more people interested in how the female body adapts to being pregnant

Let me know what you think!

well, I've have to read 'the secret to a happy marriage' as mine failed miserably there!

In keeping with the jolly ho, I've shared a homemade peppermint hot chocolate recipe... we'll be making these for teachers' gifts this year

PS: What do you give as teachers' gifts?

Not sure if I'll keep up the momentum of blogging every day as well as doing the crafts but here is Conquering Christmas, day 2 The Joy of Jingly Bells which contains a wreath and a Christmassy wind chime.

Mad a couple of soda bread calzones today - one for my daughter for her train journey, then one for my lunch:

Cooked in the frying pan, they only take about 30 minutes!

Here is my Christmas List

mumsmakelists2 Mon 03-Dec-12 11:37:15

Working conditions and product quality at the Christmas card factory in our sitting room have fallen and I fear the elves may take industrial action... confused

mumsmakelists - you are dedicated, making all those cards!

Second post of the week from me - ideal for homemade gift hampers, spiced carrot chutney

Going to look at some of these in a moment - particularly like the sound of carrot chutney!

New post yesterday from me - You learn something new every day - which includes a picture of Gauguin playing the harmonium without his trousers on.

2 posts from me - my favourite foodie blog linky, Forever Nigella, is open for December - the theme Christmas (of course). if you love the Goddess, check it out; and a post about crema catalana - or why I need a blowtorch for Christmas - and reviewing some pretty groovy French porcelain kitchenware to boot
