the sky was on fire...

.
a bizarre light appeared in the sky yesterday morning, I just managed to get a few photos quickly before it disappeared. {This cat is one of Plimsolls friends}. A few hours later...a huge snow storm!

Stupidly, whilst tons of snow fell out of the sky onto central London yesterday, I decided to go Christmas shopping!
I headed to Liberty's to get some fabric for a small pressie I'm making for Nao. Afterwards we met up with a friend from Japan and then we all went for a lovely dinner in the east end with Katy & Jane  and now I feel well in the Christmas mood!

So, today I set about doing something with that twig i painted the other day. I managed to hang it on the wall above the fireplace, with some lights and vintage baubles too.





We hopefully won't be in this flat for too much longer, but I want to make the most of our first xmas as a married couple. There is a nasty 1930s fireplace in the main room which we had covered up with furniture and books, I decided to clear it out and stick some candles in it. Its not much of a roaring fire, but you gotta start somewhere right?

After spending about 3 hours in the shed making Nao's pressies, we had a nice sit by the 'fire' with a glass of wine and some stinky French Camembert. job done I say. Xmassy score 10/10
