End of Week 51

week 51

The biggest revelation of 2012 for me comes on its last day: there are only 51 weeks this year. According to this calendar, anyway. If you wanted to plan anything for today, the 31st, you're buggered as you have no place to jot it down. So, no social life for you. Sorry and all that, but there it is.

Crimbo Card 2012

Well, 20 days in to December, now everyone has (hopefully) received theirs, I suppose I ought to at least mention the 2012 Crimbo card!

I knew I was going to be busy throughout November, so I actually drew this baby up and had it at the printers before Halloween. I was going to do something with ice skating woodland creatures, but after scribbling a few ideas for that without anything really grabbing me, this postbox idea (as seen on my December header above) just jumped into my head and the rest....insert cliche here.

So, here we are:

And the inside:

No reindeer this year, I know, shocking!

If you pop back on Christmas Eve, there will be a little animated surprise.....

The Last of the Moes

Better late than never, this was Hubbo's last Mo:

last mo

Creepy as bejiggery. I felt he could sidle up to me at any moment with a Lesley Phillips-esque "Hell-lo" and everything would go a bit Carry On.

Anyway, thankfully he is clean shaven again, and managed to raise 90 squids for Movember. Well donez that boy.
