I hope we'll see each other again very soon on a new platform! So glad everyone managed to figure out a way to still go with the Cozy Toes Swap, the Little Visitor Swap, the Nerd Games and Harry Potter Craftalong while our wonderful mods find a new home for us. Kiss

I received an amazing package from TAOJ!!

I absolutely love it all!! The slippers are great and cosy (wore them this morning), I absolutely LOVE the Llama socks, and my girls seem to have called dibs on the christmassy sticky notes. Oh, and the chocolate and Maple candy will be interesting to try!!

Funny you decided to make slippers for me! I started some for you but ran out of wool (pattern called for Aran 2 string) so I had to change my plans for something different cosy. Did you use chunky wool?

Thank you so much for being such a great swap partner, TAOJ!!

My package from endymion arrived!! YAY!

Absolutely LOOOOOVE my HP ornament!! So much detail... and so fun it's both sides!! Thank you soooo much!!

PS: endymion - the packet for you/your son is a stocking stuffer ... although the smaller item can be used as a ornament (although I haven't added something to hang it up).

Vic has been busy helping in the kitchen:

First, he helped the girls making a face pizza.

Then he was quite desperate for my plum crumble cake to come out of the oven...

Vic has been away with my twin girls and their grandparents up north last week. He didn't get to see much of the area, but had a lot of fun in the play barn!! And he had SLUSHIE!!

On Saturday we're going to the Royal Botanical Gardens for the "Halloween Trail" ... please keep your fingers crossed the weather will stay dry!!
