Today has been a tidying, DIYing kind of day. Fresh starts and all that? Finishing those jobs we started last year... more of that another day.
I've been finding homes for the little piles of presents that are scattered around the house and started to notice some themes cropping up.
I have reacquainted myself with jigsaws this Christmas! When I was little we always had a big puzzle 'on the go' over the holiday when my grandma (master of jigsaws) came to stay. It would even get carefully covered up with a tablecloth at mealtimes. Well both my sisters bought us jigsaws this year and funnily enough both with a vintagey theme.
Mr Jam was delighted to receive some notable moustaches from the youngest jammer. The whole Movember
horror experience is never ever to be repeated!
Some more prickly friends found their way into the youngest jammer's bedroom
and I think January's going to be a bit of a making month. I've signed up for Annie's monthly make just to keep my making focused! See the link on the right if you fancy joining us.
There were lots of presents with a knitted theme. I am now the proud owner of a knitted Kitty Kaboodle necklace courtesy of my BIL and his wife. I didn't even know such a thing existed but it is just my favourite colours. I was slightly perturbed by the label that told me it was particularly suitable for people who 'struggle' with clasps. Do I look that old and doddery? Perhaps I've spent too much time around old people this holiday. Wednesday was a care home recky - what an eye opener (or closer depending how you look at it)!
The slipper fairy paid us all a visit but sadly Mr Jam has had to return all 3, yes 3, pairs I've bought him on account of none of them fitting. I've told him that's it now choose your own!
And finally if anyone can offer any tips/tactics for this fabby looking game Mancala I'd be grateful!
Happy New Year readers
