Day In The Life Revival


I miss Day In The Life posts, so I’m determined to resurrect them for next year. To thisend, I am going to propose Boxing Day, aka Friday 26th December, as the next one.

If you’d care to join in, basically just write a blog post about what you do on Boxing Day. It can be a few short lines, a full blown hour by hour account, or a photographic journal. We’ve even had pie charts before. 

It’s always fun to read the minutiae of other people’s lives (or it is for me, at least), so if you’re inclined, let me know if you join in by leaving a comment with a link to your post and I’ll collate them for posterity. I’ve found some great new blogs to read as part of DITL, hopefully you will too.



I’m Claire and I live near Glasgow, in Scotland. I have strong family ties to Cincinnati, too and regard it as my second home. If I had to describe myself in five words, it would be thus: Does. Not. Suffer. Fools. Gladly. I’ve been cross stitching pretty much all my life, but professionally since 2005, first as Miso Funky, then as The Bellwether and now under my own name. I'm known for my witty, sarcastic and occasionally profane typographic designs. My work has been featured in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Channel 4 and on BBC television as well as numerous media outlets across the globe. At one point, I was kind of a big deal but I mostly just dabble in it these days when I have time. My website is a repositry of cross stitch charts, travel and food blogging and you'll find it at I also love to travel and eat, ideally travelling somewhere great to eat something brilliant. I'm fascinated by social history, particularly the Victorians and will absolutely beat you hands down in a quiz about the Tudors. Dogs are LIFE. I like being in water and have lots of ideas that will never see the light of day but would definitely be a winner on Dragon’s Den/Shark Tank. I love to give people gifts. I! also! overuse! exclamation! marks! sorry!
