Sunday sevens 19th December

Sunday’s here again, so time for another #sundaysevens. Sunday sevens was devised by the wonderful Nat at Thread and Bobbins for bloggers to share photos of their personal week.

  1. In anticipation of the tree surgeon arriving, I cleared the duck path last Sunday so the chipped brash could be used to rejuvenate it. It’s buried there somewhere under the leaves.

2. On Monday the tree surgeon arrived, but unfortunately the cherry picker had been in an accident prior to it’s arrival and wasn’t having any of it. We now have a rather strange totem pole.

3. On Tuesday I was in Okehampton in the dark for the first time since they put the Christmas lights up.

4. On Thursday I finally dusted off my sewing machine to make some Christmas  presents.

5. I know I’m easily pleased, but even I was surprised how ridiculously excited I was on Saturday by the arrival of the parcel from my  stitching Santa.

6. Saturday we also had a fabulous time at the village Christmas meal.20151219_2009427. As for Mr Hicks, he’s continued to feel better and really perked up at the end of the week. Haven’t see him as good since the summer 🙂

Hope you’ve had a great week.

  1. Your tree’s looking a bit out of place! I think it needs some lights on! Loving your festive week, what a great idea to have a village Christmas Dinner, I bet it takes some organising but is worth it! Your parcel looks interesting….. only 5 sleeps!! 🙂

      1. Ha ha! Mind, when eldest was at primary school she was an ace tree climber and employed on several occasions to climb in neighbour’s windows when they’d locked themselves out – so maybe she’ll go for it 😉

  2. Great week! Oh that poor tree….so glad I’m not saying poor Mr. Hicks! Glad to know that he is feeling chipper. Your santa did a nice job, can’t wait to see your parcel contents! How nice that your daughter is nearly there, certainly makes Christmas cheerier with your “youngsters” to share.

  3. You really have had a lovely festive week – Christmas lights, presents and present making, and a fantastic Christmas meal. Not to mention Mr. Hicks is feeling better. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends.

      1. Chris (our youngest at 31) is coming back from Montreal for almost two weeks, so that will be wonderful. Then he’s off around the world again! The other five all live quite close, so keep popping in over the holiday. They’ll all be here on Christmas Day (and guess who does all the cooking! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve always done it).
        I’m up to my eyes in present wrapping right now. Oh, the fun of it all – seriously, I mean. 😀

      2. Sounds wonderful Always wish I had more kids this time of year – especially when elsdest is off on her travels and misses Christmas. How lovely to have your youngest home for a whole two weeks 🙂

      3. Believe me, Bekki, if you had six kids, you’d be like me…permanently broke! But I still wouldn’t change a thing, even if I had the chance to start all over again. Christmasses were absolutely magical when they were all little. Now, Christmasses are just flippin’ expensive! 😀

      4. Good point and funny you should say that. I spent some money this morning and thought ‘Heck that’s expensive’, but then I calmed myself with the thought we’d have spent so much more if we had a third child to buy stuff for.

      5. It wasn’t something we considered when we had our brood, for some reason. Nick’s from a family of seven children and, although I’m only one of three, I’d been watching ‘The Waltons’ far too much. A big family was something I really wanted. No regrets at all, except that we’re still penniless.

  4. The tree does look a little sad doesn’t it! If it wasn’t so close to Christmas, you could have wrapped it in tinsel and twinkly lights 🙂 Your #stitchingsanta present looks very exciting! Glad to hear that Mr Hicks has perked up in time for Christmas 🙂 Have a good one!
