This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Unpacking - lots of Christmas stuff from our loft. The tree's going up tonight!

Chuckling - at fab comedian Ed Byrne in Bristol's Colston Hall. It's about the fourth time I've seen him and we had front row balcony tickets (which Andrew bought over a year in advance as last year's Christmas present!). He've very very good; his routines about seemingly mundance mid life moments such as vasectomies, child rearing and hernias had us all crying with laughter!

Shopping - in Cheltenham, on a coach trip organised by our work staff society. I'd had the trip booked since February and although it was a lovely day it was also slightly frustrating that it fell on the same day as the Bath Xmas Bloggers Meet Up! Oh well, there's always next year...

Christmas in Cheltenham
Meeting - up with the Eli Trier, one of the lovely girls I met at the Pretty Nostalgic event back in October.
We met at the Roll for the Soul Cafe in Bristol, I had a delicious hot chocolate and we had a good old gossip, setting the world to rights. :-)

Making - some little Christmas bunting for my Secret Santa present for one of the girls at work. We have two computer monitors on our desks so I measured how much would be needed to go round the screens and cut up some little bits of fabric wrapping it up with a Christmas chocolate bar. We're doing our Secret Santa presents today so I hope she likes it!

What did you get up to at the weekend?


  1. Looks like you had lots of festive fun! Is that a huge Brussel sprout dressed as an Xmas pud?! Either way it amuses me!

    1. You guessed correctly! It is a sprout dressed as a pud as seen in the window of White Stuff :-) x

    1. Aww thanks! It was a bit fiddly to make but it looks great on the computer at work! :-) x

  3. I love that first photo of the tinsel--so sparkly and fun! Looks like you had an amazing weekend and I'm certain that your workmate will love the bunting. I certainly would!!

    1. We all opened our presents later that day and she loved it! It's currently adorning her computer and then she said she's going to display it at home :-) x
