dog tired

Took the dog for a run in the woods today. She's been asleep ever since. I'm feeling a little sleepy myself. It's the Chrimbo Limbo innit.

25 and 26 THE END

Christmas... hope it was a good one.

Monday, 24 December 2018


Twenty four miscellaneous festive items. All recycled from previous days. Sustainable design at it's best.... and I can't think of any more county items for the sodding thing. Obvs.

Sunday, 23 December 2018


Twenty three pressies in Santa's sack.


Twenty two brussels sprouts for Christmas dinner.

Friday, 21 December 2018


Twenty one stars.
Cos it's bloody dark ALL THE TIME here.
And they're quick.
Ho ho ho.

Twenty Christmas cards.
A dying breed. Loads of people have told me they're not sending cards this year. Maybe they're not? Or maybe they just don't like me 😬

Nineteen snowflakes. Nice and quick. Nexxxtttt....

Eighteen Christmas crackers.
To anyone not in the UK who is wondering what the chuff a Christmas cracker is:
It's a thing that you pull with a friend over Christmas dinner. It breaks in half and spits out a load of tat, including a paper hat and a shit joke. The more they cost, the better quality the tat... but the joke's still a bit shit.
You're welcome.

It's beginning to look a lot like crowded...

Sunday, 16 December 2018


Sixteen winter warmers. Cos it's bloody cold.

Saturday, 15 December 2018


Fifteen Christmas puds. All destined for the bin. Cos no-one has room for christmas pud after they've spent all day stuffing their faces with Quality Street, fancy M&S chilli coated peanuts and an enormous turkey.

Fourteen christmas stockings. One mouse. Trying to liven it up a bit.

Thursday, 13 December 2018


I was THIS close to packing it in (hold finger and thumb together and screw face up in a strained manner)
But I'm not a quitter.
I started the bloody thing, I have to finish it. No-one needs Christmas presents this year anyway.
So... Thirteen very realistic robins...

Wednesday, 12 December 2018


Twelve pretty boring trees. Cos frankly I have not got time to draw 12 of anything more interesting in the run up to Christmas and I don't know what on earth I was thinking starting this whole thing.

Eleven cats in hats. 
Because nothing says Christmas like a cat in a hat.

Ten little dudes in the school nativity. The other kids were trees and rocks and chickens and stuff.
Do I miss the school nativity now the kids are big? I do in a rose coloured spectacle kinda way. Well, I miss the actual 37 seconds they were on stage. I don't miss the rest of the whole palava surrounding school christmas events and the total stress of fitting everything in and remembering to buy a christmas jumper before the shops all sell out in November and having to turn up at church, the christmas fair and the nativity all in the same week as 70 thousand top urgent deadlines. I don't miss that bit.

Sunday, 9 December 2018


Why did I think this was a good idea? The numbers quite obviously go up and up. Which means more drawing every day. At the busiest time of the year. What an idiot I am.
Day 10 will just be 10 stars I reckon. And day 11 will be 11 stars.... that's perfectly acceptable isn't it?

Eight elves hanging about waiting to wrap some pressies. They could be there a while cos I haven't bought them yet ha ha.

Friday, 7 December 2018


Seven randomers wearing Christmas jumpers. A full week before Christmas Jumper Day. Maybe they're stupid. Maybe they're just excited? Or maybe I couldn't be arsed to draw 14 christmas jumpers next week.
I guess we'll never know...

Six Squashed Snowmen Sitting Side by Side.

This needs to be a book....

Six squashed snowmen sitting side by side,
One snowman melted and the others all cried.

Ha seller 👌🏼

It's only day 5 and already I'm suffering from Christmas fatigue.
Also the eldest has been having interviews at a local-ish shopping centre for part time jobs and I am totally over hanging out with manic Christmas shoppers while I wait for her. The shops are full of tat, the traffic is horrendous and everyone looks totally stressed out. I can't even be arsed to buy anything. I'm just gonna do it all online. (Sorry shop owners, I know I know....but it's just eeeeasier 😬
In better news I bought new jeans last night to replace the ill-fated faves. And the eldest got offered 2 jobs. Yay. 

Tuesday, 4 December 2018


Four polar bears. Slipping on the ice. Like me this morning. Only they didn't fall over and rip their favourite jeans like I did. And they don't have a hole in their knee.

Monday, 3 December 2018


Three angels just hanging about. Like angels do.

Day 2 of the ChristmasCountyThing...

Saturday, 1 December 2018

definitely not an advent

It's a counting thing. OK? Not an advent. I'm sooo over the advent. This is similar. But not the same. Not the same at all.

november 18

This was November....
November had a lot going on.
