Gosh! Only 5 sleeps ’til Christmas so one or two festive shots in this weeks Sunday Sevens, and a food-less one too, so no need to look away if you’ve not had your tea yet (or breakfast depending which part of the world you’re in!).
1 I took this photo on Tuesday from the 11th tee after I’d tee’d off. My ball was up there somewhere!! Luckily there weren’t many daft enough to be playing in the fog otherwise it would have been quite dangerous.
2 I made a start on my Stitching Santa pressies at the beginning of the week. I had this fabric from a charm pack I bought earlier in the year when I decided to give quilting a try. I thought this fabric would be just the job for my recipient. I’ve a Craftsy class that showed how to make these triangles, then I had a play around with the arrangement but ended up with something completely different!
3 H and I went shopping to buy him some clothes for Christmas. We went straight from school and was ready to leave at 6pm. After half an hour we were still not out of the carpark due to the nearby M62 being broken. We went back into the shopping centre from hot chocolate, and eventually got home at 9pm!! (No this is a drinks picture, not food!! lol)
4 On Friday I started work at 7am. They sent me out to stand by and there was the most amazing sunrise. I pulled over to get a shot, which was lucky as I got a call 2 minutes later and it was all gone by the time I’d finished. You can just make out the allotments in the foreground of the photo, and the lights are from the school.
5 Yay for the Park Run! I love it when I have Saturdays off. I should have been working but had taken leave as we had plans for later in the day. Nearly everyone was dressed up and looking really festive.
And when I say everyone, I mean even the dogs!
And Gemma and I had made an effort too, though we couldn’t run in the glasses!
6 Saturday afternoon I had some selfish sewing time and whipped up my first Coco dress to wear that evening. I used the same fabric that I used to make my Colette Wren and went down a size from my current Coco tops as I find I have excess fabric in the front. It’s a little bit snug across the upper bust but is definitely a better fit. I think I’ll wear this Christmas day and might even add some Christmassy embellishments!
7 It’s a good job Mr Thimbers doesn’t read my blog! Here he is dancing away in our friend’s kitchen after remembering he rather likes a Jack Daniels and Coke (or 2!) :-0
7a Sometimes when I’m at work i struggle to get my 10,000 steps a day in, more so if I’m working on the response car, which is most of the time. So when I get to the hospital, as soon as I’ve sorted out my patient I’ll walk up to the top floor (4 flights) along the corridor and back door the other staircase to get the blood flowing!
This is the view from the top of the stair case overlooking the old part of the hospital. The building on the right with the big chimney used to house circular wards. There used to be a bit large outer circle of beds and a small circle of beds in the middle facing the outer circle. Seems strange now, but that was what it was like when I first joined the ambulance service. I think the new hospital has been only open about 10 years.
So will you be joining in the Sunday Sevens over the holidays? If you’d don’t have the time normally maybe you could just to a one off Christmas Special! Head over to Natalie’s blog if you’d like to read more about it from our leader!
