20th December 2013

Wow, we can't believe it's already the 20th! Hasn't this month fFlown by? It's been so busy, we're at least a week behind on catching up our favourite TV (The Mentalist, Person of Interest and Homeland, since you ask). No spoilers, please!

For those of you who haven't had the chance to visit a school Christmas assembly or carol service, here are two little video clips of choirs from Adam's school rehearsing for their Festival of Carols:

Today's pictures are all of Christmas cards by artists we like. Michael Craig-Martin started his career by presenting "An Oak Tree", a sculpture of an oak tree that looked exactly like a glass of water on a shelf. His main work now is outlines of objects coloured in, and he did one of the 12 Olympic posters in 2012. This is his card:

Grayson Perry has been in the news this year, presenting on TV and delivering the BBC Reith lectures, contoversially in a chatty style rather than in academic pomp. As well as his pottery, he likes to play with preconceptions about his appearance. His family also join in on his Christmas cards!
