Every now and then, people find us after doing search for a combination of words that we wouldn’t normally expect. An example of this has been the flood of people search for Facebook Nativity or Facebook Christmas Cover Photos. (Cover photos, are what you find on the top of a Facebook profile)
Well… this has ended up inspiring a random session on Photoshop, which then led to The Sofa offering a couple of Christmas Cover Photos a couple of years ago.
I’ve updated the original images to match the up to date measurements for Facebooks Cover Photos

This post first appeared over on The Church Sofa.
The Crowds gathering and looking around the Exeter Christmas Market this morning, all in the shadow of the Exeter Cathedral.
By the time lunch time hit, this area was fairly full.
(Note for Exeter Gluten Free People… The Crepe place here does gluten free crepes, which don’t taste like cardboard. Which, in my humble opinion makes this a far better market then last year)
I can’t help but love watching the sun set over the Mid Devon hills.
With the dark nights drawing in, I took the chance the other evening to play with the NightCap app on my phone.
Photo possibly looks better on a smaller screen…
I feel a bit more experimentation is needed.
The small one has found this little animation “Poppies” on iPlayer, and seems to love it watching it on repeat. Poppies looks at war as experienced by the animal inhabitants of a WW1 battlefield, and seems to speak a little to the small one about (some of) the horror of World War 1.
Maybe I should write a list of reasons why I love cBeebies?
If I did, this would be on the list.
A moment from our trip today up to Dartmoor in Devon.
The sort of trip where you get enough fresh air, to breathe life back into your soul. In a good way.
Have you ever watched Bing on Cbeebies, and been amazed at how Flop hasn’t gone mad?
Do you ever need to stop, and think What Would Flop Do?
Perhaps this board will help you remember what saint Flop would do in any particular situation?
(This has been uploaded to Redbubble – check it out for other “What Would Flop Do?” bits and pieces! )
The hunt for Geocaches the other day, led us to The Goat Walk in Topsham, Devon; where the stillness of the Exe Estuary, led the Small One to want to encourage me to throw pebbles into the still water.
I naturally obliged.
The two of us hanging out there, was one of those times where you are mentally dragged away from the pressures of work, that to do list of things of things to do at home disappears, and the existence of anything that drags you away from the moment is forgotten.
It’s arguably a little bit of heaven.
Thanks to the small one, wanting to make ripples in the stillness.
When the clocks go back, and you’re a parent, you know – you’re not going to get extra sleep. So what should you do instead with that extra hour?
How do you imagine you will use / did you use that extra hour?
I was tempted to call this post “Ear Worm of The Week: Andy and the Odd Socks – ‘UNIQUE'”. But figured it would be a little long. (Yes – it is Andy from CBeebies)
Anyway… I didn’t want to like this as much as I did. Before the song ended I caught myself with a silly smile over my face.
Figured I would share it here, in case it gives you a similar smile.
