Project Life Tuesday: Second Week in November

The Mom Creative

Another lovely, busy week!  Linking up as ever to share my Project Life pictures.

The temperatures are really dropping and the nights are drawing in.  Christmas is well and truly on it's way, and any spare moments I have are filled with planning Christmas fun...  Spare moments being a fairly rare thing at this point in the term!

On Wednesday it was Boutique de Noel, the big annual Christmas fair/fundraiser the Junior League holds.  It was *brilliant* - the ladies truly outdid themselves.  I bought so many gifts and thoroughly enjoyed the auction and visiting with so many lovely folk!  Above is the gorgeous Amberly, who pledged in the same class as me, and my colleague Jo, who came along too.  Such a fun evening!

Eileen came along to BdN too, but this snap is from Tuesday, when I popped in to see her for a quick cuppa.  Always love a girldate with Eileen!

We shopped hard at BdN!

Over the weekend Matthew and I travelled north for a whistle-stop visit to see his family. This was my train picnic for the journey home :)

Goofiest smile ever?  I was very pleased to have found festive friends!

On Saturday, Elly (Matthew's sister in law) and I spent the day together.  We went to the beach (always a treat!) and caught up over drinks and food.  She is such a wonderful girl - I am so glad that my relationship with Matthew and her marriage to Nick brought the two of us together!

Beautiful Elly (you made the blog, honey! ;)).  Can't wait to meet our niece when she arrives next year - I 
am stockpiling goodies...

How I spend any evening I manage to have free - blogging/reading in my Christmas PJs!

On Thursday the Year 4 parents took Margot, Richard and I out for wine and food.  It's always lovely to catch up away from school and I really enjoyed some lively conversation!

How was your week, lovely folk?


  1. That's sooooo exciting that you are going to have a niece! Congratulations! :) You will be the awesomest of aunts, I know it.

    Man, reading about your shopping in London makes me want to go shopping in London.

  2. Looks like you had a really fun week. I LOVE your train snack...looks wonderful.

  3. Congratulations on the addition to the family! I love that street scene - I need to go to London again!


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
