Christmas Preparations...

.... have definitely been the order of the week.  They all started last Sunday evening with the lantern parade and the turning on of Tregony Christmas lights - which I have to say are looking stunning again this year.  Christmas cards are written, the tree and decorations are up, mince pies made and half eaten already and the Christmas cd's have been blasting out all weekend.  The first of four Christmas do's has been attended and thoroughly enjoyed.  Tomorrow is the children Christmas Show to their parents - a very stressful day for staff - will the children perform or will they freeze!!! Either way we will all be very proud of them as will everyone who comes to watch them.

On to this week's photo challenge. We chose short dof and here are my offerings and you can see Louise's here .

I chose the images of presents because I have signed up to do the Journal Your Christmas and I wanted to include the wrapping of presents early for delivery to family & friends who we won't see on Christmas Day.   

I won this littl chap on the raffle at camera club this week.  So cute he was just begging to have his photo taken.  So I incorporated him into the challenge this week with the smarties tube that was sitting in the cupboard.  Guess some folk would say I need to get out more????


  1. Brill pics, love the close up of the presents...I have a thing about close up photos!!

    The smarties and penguin are fun pics...did you use sugar?! Very effective, you can really see the dof with the smarties, they are really great photos xx

  2. Yes lots of sugar. Did enjoy eating the smarties afterwards, can't bring myself to eat the penguin ..... yet lol x
