Elvis the Elf continues with his shenanigans during December; I appear to be the only one who actually takes notice. 🙂
Welcome to December Daily - my favourite project of the year. 🙂 You can see my foundation pages here. This year's Manifesto is super simple - previous experience tells me that this is what works for me. I'll add a photo of me in my Christmas jumper or Santa hat at some point. The Manifesto … Continue reading December Daily 2020 | Manifesto and Days 1-5
Very early on Sunday morning, The Boy Child and I headed into town to view this year's Christmas windows. We travelled, masked up, on an almost empty Tube and found Central London's streets quiet. An advantage of going in early on a Sunday morning. 🙂 We began at Knightsbridge for Harrods and Harvey Nichols. Harrods … Continue reading London’s West End Christmas Windows
I've filled in the last few gaps in The Boy Child's earlier albums from 2011 with a few 12x12 spreads. You'll also be able to see what the original pages looked like (the right hand images).

I took Tilly out 52 times. I wrote 3 more letters as … Continue reading Month in Numbers | December 2019
Day 21: was the day we went to the Panto in London's West End. Day 22: was when I went to a Carol Service with my friend. Day 23: was when we spent the afternoon with friends who are like family. Day 24: was the day I donated my 32nd pint of blood and we … Continue reading December Daily 2019 | Days 21-25
Day 16: involved wrapping presents. Day 17: was about the Christmas Disco. I didn't take a great shot, so the trick was to simply work with what I had - go smaller on the photo and bigger on the filler cards. Day 18: was when I caught up with local friends for a cuppa and … Continue reading December Daily 2019 | Days 16-20
