CPSH December

Little bit late with this, but I think I have a valid excuse as someone (quite possibly the Grinch...) broke into my house just before Christmas and stole all the presents. And my laptop. So I'm currently coming to you from Nick's old one, which is a bit temperamental.

(In best Dr Seuss style, though, the lack of presents wasn't that much of a disaster. 

He HADN'T stopped Christmas from coming! IT CAME! 
Somehow or other, it came just the same! 
And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, 
Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?" 
"It came without ribbons! It came without tags!" 
"It came without packages, boxes or bags!" 
And he puzzled three hours, `till his puzzler was sore. 
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before! 
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store." 
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"

Anyway... on with the pictures.)


This post isn't scheduled... it really is before lunch time on New Year's Day. Therefore the most inspiring thing in my life at the moment is this massive cup of tea.

Something I made

I have done lots of Christmas baking, but not managed to take any pictures. Looking round my flat today I've realised that the only other thing I've really made is a mess. And this massive pile of boxes of books (this time next week I will have moved house!)


Another holiday photo I'm afraid - a temple on Koh Samui.


Due to the impending house move, holiday, and not being at home much over the festive season, we didn't really do any decorating. I'm afraid a pile of fir-cones was a festive as it got.

Motifs: Geometric

Base of a lamp. Not yet packed.

Head over to Emma at The Gift Shed to see her pictures for December and links to everyone else who's played this month. 

And a very happy 2012!


  1. Someone broke into your house?! Utter scum, it's supposed to be the season for giving, not taking.

    I really like your geometric photo - it does something very strange to my eyes though!

  2. I know! They clearly got confused...

    It does to me too. I should have thought this through and embedded a subliminal message in it!
