The beginning of another month so time to summarise last month in numbers.  Thanks to Julie for this prompt which I’ve enjoyed all year.

And here is the advent calendar I made for my parents, inspired by an idea in a supermarket Festive magazine. The bowl is filled with 24 paper cones each of which contains a small festive treat.  I printed the labels and cut out with my tag punch.

Sounds like a very nicely balanced month mixing excercise, nature, creativity and culture. Lovely!

I've never thought of making something like that for my parents - what a nice idea.

You're on the board now:

Thanks for joining in once again - so glad you enjoy it. Happy December!

Julie :-)

Now that's a pretty bowl of cones, and such a nice idea - new to me! And I love that you danced :).

Your parents are going to enjoy the Advent season opening all those cones. Even adults like having fun. It's nice to learn another person enjoys walking. I absolutely love it. I do go to the gym, but I love my walking better than sweating it out at the gym. I have been known to walk 8 miles in one day--but I was really exhausted when I got home1

Those advent cones are brilliant.

Your exercise numbers sound very good - wish I could say the same lol

Oh those little advent cones are such a cute idea! I enjoyed reading your month in numbers and I think it's cool that there's such a variety of activities (especially between opera, ballet and hip hop). :o)

I love the way you have recorded your month Helena it looks like a christmas card. I saw those cones and put them on my list of things to do! Starting my catch up here...

A lovely way of displaying your numbers for the month. I love that advent idea, I might look at something like this for DH next year instead of a stocking.
