Happy Friday! This week has been crazy but I am quite delighted with myself for knocking over a mass of Christmas shopping with Mother Polka Dot. For someone who had a bit of a “oh my gosh how did it get to be the end of November and I haven’t even thought about Christmas” meltdown earlier this week, I feel like that’s a gold star for shopping skills. or at least taking time out from the polka dot world to get ‘er done!

I am kind of wishing for turkey with cranberry sauce- a big happy thanksgiving to our American friends!

What did you get up to this week? If you’ve finished shopping can you please tell me how you are so organised?

Let’s catch up on the polka blogs!

For our film of the week. When life gets too much, there is nothing like the emotion that comes with a proposal to get me remembering what I love so much about what I do. Today’s film is a bit of a big proposal but big or small, I love how the emotion and feelings are always the same.
