Vlogmas 2018: Day 25

It's Christmas Day!

I do some final food prep, and then the guests arrive. We've got lots of footage of YarnderMum being her very cute self, as well as Smudge the YarnderDog and the rest of the Yarnder family.

In the evening we visit the Yarnders-in-law, where Smudge meets a new doggie friend and we end the evening with a game of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 24

It's Christmas Eve! I'm doing lots of cooking today, as well as looking at Christmas lights, and watching our traditional Xmas Eve shows (including the Justice League cartoon).

The Recipes mentioned are as follows:

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 23

It's Christmas Eve Eve! Lots happening today, involving copious amounts of (re-used) wrapping paper, for gifts and making bon-bons for the table. I also finish-up the two knitted gifts I needed to finalise, and I can now rest a little, knowing that there is just the food prep to do.

Vlogmas 2018 - Days 21 & 22

Spoiler alert - we get a big Christmas tree! I also visit YarnderMum and she tells us all about that favourite toy pig of hers.

Today I go to both my office Christmas lunch as well as a friend's Christmas party. Cheers!

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 19

Today I take you through the city to my morning coffee shop, and then at lunch time, we go to a spectacular park for some nature time.

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 18

As well as looking at Advent things and some knitting, Damian and I then take Smudge, the YarnderDog, to the park for an early evening walk.

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 17

Today I do some more present wrapping; block some finished knits with my new wool soap; and head out to see my niece's ballet concert.

Vlogmas 2018: Day 15 (part a)

We have SO much footage of YarnderMum today! She chats, she smiles, she even dances! Enjoy. :-)

Vlogmas 2018: Day 14

It's a red, black and grey day as my knitting visits several places including a lovely lunch location. Sophie "meets" Hello Kitty, and Smudge helps with knitting.

Vlogmas 2018: Day 13

As well as getting a blood test (fascinating) I went to a workshop organised by Krissy who started the business "Inspired Little Pot". We learned all about making our own body products from easy-to-find, low-tox ingredients. You can find all her contact details at 08:02:22

Vlogmas 2018: Days 11 & 12

There's the opening of the Advent calendars, some time in a shady spot outside, carol singing from a work colleague and donations of food & toys that I organised for my workplace to donate to charity.

Vlogmas 2018 - Days 9 & 10

I check out the new She-ra reboot with the YarnderTeen, have lots of tea (some good, some not so), sample some local beers, and, of course, do some knitting.

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 8

We've got Christmas decorations, we've got YarnderMum and we've got dinner at a Japanese restaurant for my step-son's 22nd birthday. It was a great Summer Saturday. :-)

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 7

Today I show you some of the sights of Perth city as I make my way to work and to meet up with a knitting friend in the early evening. 

(We did have a sad end to the night though, with a one-way vet trip for our rattie, Mimi.)

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 6

Today there is lots of footage of YarnderMum! However, in some of the videos, her head isn't showing - sometimes, when I record on my phone, it cuts off the top of the shot when I use the editing software and I have no idea how to make that not happen. So, apologies that her voice is disembodied, but I included several still shots so you can see her gorgeous smile. :-)

There's also some advent things, yummy (and easy) food, and of course, Smudge.

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 5

Today we take Smudge for a walk amongst the gorgeous jacaranda trees; make a yummy Moroccan vegan dinner; and look at some other things around the house.

The websites I mentioned are:
Healthy, ethical pet treats
The peach & chickpea curry I riffed on to make a prune Moroccan dish. (PS All the recipes on this site are affordable and delicious.)

Vlogmas 2018 - Day 4

Smudge the YarnderDog intrudes on filming, I cook tofu, and show you my lunchtime knitting.

Chat below or on the Ravelry thread.
