  1. Day 18 What the Heck is That?

    Well. I think itís supposed to be a shepherd, since the little piece by piece story behind every door is a slice of this Christmas story and today says ďShepherds were living outside the town, guarding their sheepĒ. But it has a cute little moustache and a big round nose so it looks more like an otter playing dress up. But I think itís definitely supposed to be a shepherd. Not sure what heís holding though. Itís too square to be a sheep.
    I was a shepherd once in the school nativity so I know. ...

    It was another big one today. A lovely little reindeer face with long curly antlers. That would look lovely as a little cake topper too.

    A sleigh full of presents and a tree.

    I baked some Nutella cookies yesterday. Havenít tasted them fully, just a few crumbs. And today I made chocolate chip cookies but itís nothing special. It was a premade cookie mix.
    What is is is this. Particularly around this time of year you see tv characters and so on who make cookies for friends/family/co-workers and I see that and want to do it too but there are some issues. The main one being that mum doesnít eat sweets as much as ...

    And the half the housemates have been eaten. The most recent evictionÖ
    A gingerbread man.

    Never actually watched Big Brother. I didnít much like the concept and every time I did stray onto it they were asleep anyway.

    I tried replacing the shower hose today. It was a little disastrous. Mum needed to wash her hair so I changed the hose before she got there and didnít tell her because I wanted an unbiased opinion on whether it was better or not. For some reason ...
