Nice try, sunshine…

Left alone in the capable flippers of the short-notice babysitter (i.e. Grandma…) – while his parents brave the crowds of last-minute Christmas shoppers (please, humour me…) – this enterprising chick seizes his opportunity for a little seasonal wool-pulling, of the ‘over-the-eyes’ … Continue reading

Christmas party shame…

Ah, yes… The morning after the night before: Bernard hung his head and tried not to think about the thousands of photocopies of his penguin-y posterior that were, by now, bound to have reached every inch of the Antarctic (and probably … Continue reading

Take 10…

If preparations (or the mere thought of them if, like me, you are already woefully behind the curve when it comes to such seasonal pursuits as card-writing and present-buying…) for Christmas are all getting a little too much, this one’s … Continue reading

I imagine that there must be some sort of Brussels-sprout-equivalent amidst the penguins’ Christmas dinner – perhaps some particularly noxious-looking species of fish…? And, of course, the only use for such a maligned seasonal ingredient is some sort of precariously-towering food-sculpture (potentially a … Continue reading

A seasonal business…

And…they’re off!!

Yes. It’s Monday, people (sorry about that…). It feels like there’s a veritable mountain to climb this week, so I thought we could all do with a bit of a (super-fast, downhill) run-up to the start 🙂 (Apparently, there was … Continue reading

Double doses…

Yikes. Four days in and I’ve already had my first Advent-blog-post-punctuality casualty… So here are yesterday’s and today’s in tandem:   The temperature’s plummeted again here in the South East, and mum (staying for the briefest of visits this weekend) … Continue reading
