Ok, it's looked like Christmas for a while, but I like the song. And I just watched 'It's a Wonderful Life' whilst writing Christmas cards and munching on a mince pie (carefully chosen by Michael and delivered in an owl napkin by Denise
, our trusty south coast correspondent, sent me this amazing picture of our pretty paper chains, further adding to my Christmassy glow:
£2 a pack, they make 2.5 - 3m
Additionally, I received a Christmas present from our new friends, Zoe
& Paul, which was delivered with an apology as they're apparently really addictive and cost more than some choice illegal substances!:
They weren't kidding. It's ace.
We also held our first annual (!) Christmas games night on Friday. Amy put together a spread that would put most 6th Birthday parties to shame, and made a juicy fruit punch. We invited some of our favourite people - I say some because we can't fit them all in to our studio - and asked them to bring a game to play.
There were buzzers and tiles and chips and dice and blocks and donkeys and pirates and bananas....but no twister, we don't have space for that.
Thanks for coming everyone! It was great, and left me feeling very festive indeed. Might buy a tree tomorrow.
