Here Is The News #21


Here is the News



Blogland Brilliance

Rebecca was amazed by what she saw at North Petherton Carnival the other week - anyone up for a cider and hot dog bloggy Carnival meet up next November?

Part two of Katie's Christmas Gift Guide looks at things for the male in your life - the beer bread and Captain America memory stick are pretty cool.

Samantha has a little bit of absolutely lovely news to share.

Rachael upcycled a record trolley and it's now sporting a fabulous shade of blue.

Sarah has a most wonderful announcement to make (and on a very important topic) and reading her post will leave you feeling both sad and happy at the same time.

Natalie wrote about lessons in self-esteem with some very wise words about being individual and not comparing yourself to others.

Vicky's post all about simplifying Christmas is very good - our Christmas shenanigans at the duckpond will be simpler this year but that's because at the moment, I still can't walk properly (and therefore stand for very long, carry anything, move anything about, etc., etc.)

And finally, not only has Katie only gone and been featured in a real life actual printed book, she's also found what must be the best crackers ever and on top of that, is having a little giveaway to celebrate!



Hungry?

Terry's Chocolate Orange Cookies? Yes please!

Sammie's Cranberry White Chocolate Truffles look fab - I wouldn't mind finding a packet of them in my stocking.

Debi's Chicken Fried Rice recipe looks so simple yet so tasty!



DIY Excellence

How cool are these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle baubles?

Eight and Sixteen have produced a round-up of some of the best festive decorations to make and also some fabulous gift wrap ideas (my favourite are the little washi tape flags).



Interesting Info

I've been enjoying watching Lucy Worsley and Len Goodman's 'Dancing Cheek to Cheek' programme on BBC4 and the Beeb have produced a timeline of 'dirty dances' to go along with it.

  1. Hello Louisa Duck! How are you and how is the leg healing?
    Katie's book news is Amazing, isn't it, I was so happy for her and the Happily Ever After for Foxy! He is immortalised!!

    I would gladly come and see a carnival!!

    I'm well just very busy! I finished writing a Christmas carol for my choir at 1.30 in the morning and then had a full day of tracking but the song proved a success with 22 children singing like there were 50! I've been doing lots of nice things including parties, practising for a best themed children's orchestra concert and blogging about drumming!! All is good!.

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
