So Grown Up!

Doesn't he look smart and all grown up! John is off out tonight to his Snowball dance at school!

Not to be outdone it was Andrew's P7 Christmas Ball last week

As you can probably guess I have not managed to do any kind of Christmas Journal this year due to various things cropping up - not least getting a cold, having a tooth removed which then became infected. Maybe I will find time to do something with the photos I will (hopefully) take over the Christmas period!!!!

One bit of good news though - I passed my recent Open University exam with a Grade 2 pass, so I am really pleased. Only one more module to go not before I get my degree, a BA in Social Sciences. The module I am currently studying is Living Political Ideas and I am enjoying it so far.

Advent Goodies

It's now officially Advent, well actually has been now for a few days, and have I started doing any kind of journal yet - No! Its that time again - I have an assignment due in on Saturday and am only half way there. Needed a break to open some advent goodies though. Over at UK Christian Crafters we are having an Advent Swap again this year. We have to send 25 small pressies to someone to open one each day - only this year there was a slight twist as some of them had to fit certain challenges - and boy was it a challenge.

Here is my lovely parcel

And here are my goodies for the first three days:

Day 1: was for a challenge on Advent, something related to numbers - I got number stickers, wooden numbers and numbered tape ribbon.
Day 2: I got Bible stickers and a Dip Dap - oh to be like a child again.
Day 3: was for a challenge on Joseph, something made of wood - a wooden house that opens up and some Nativity 3D stuff.

It certainly beats a chocolate advent calendar.
