Mystery & Mistletoe

We came back from work last night to find the Bun's and Grandma curled up working on The Famous Five's The Vanishing Thief. We muscled in straight away as we love puzzles too. 
Today has been a mad whizzing around day off filled with stuff I like. In between popping to church for the school Harvest Festival and a spot of "We Plough the Fields and Scatter..." I did a wee bit of wool and nice things therapy. I reasoned that the Bun's needed new shiny pencils as I love using these Crayola ones best. I got some garish Halloween stickers to go with them so we can get busy making pictures next week. I also fell for these zingy yarns, how could I resist. Perfect for finishing my blankets and some more Happy Days Bunting.
I was also in sensible mummy mode for a mo and went in the cheap & cheerful bargain shop for warm duvets for the Bun's beds. Then I spotted smelly candles and knew I'd solved the stinky smell from the woodburner. It smells so smoky even though we haven't lit it for a few days, now Honeydew Melon will cover it up nicely.
And here's some proof that I did start whipping up a few of those Misteltoe Kisses brooches. Got to sew them up and then on to the next make on the list.
My fridge would like to say it was very flattered by all your kind words by the way. It was a very lovely present from my folks when we finished building our kitchen at our old house. My Nan had a pink fridge so it feels right having our own.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
