As if I haven’t got enough on my plate – what with juggling work and a 16 month old diva – I’ve decided to make my own Advent Calender.

It’s all part of my ongoing quest to be the perfect mother and assuage the constant Mother Guilt Complex that nags at the back of my mind.

The thing is, I’m a bit crap at making things. Take this homemade peg bag for example:

Yes, I know it's rubbish.

So it was a bit of a relief to be given a Button Bag, do it yourself, Advent Calender to be my guide in this latest project. (Before we go any further, this isn’t a sponsored post. And I’ve not been given this to review. It really was a present – thanks Granny from the North.)

I’ve still got a way to go, but unlike the doomed peg bag, I don’t have an indefinite amount of time to finish this creation. Clearly December 1st is my cut off point.

So if you don’t hear from me for a while, you know where I’ll be:


I suppose if it all goes tits up, I can just stuff it with chocolate and still win those elusive Mum Points?
