This past week T and S have had their class parties and T took part in the school orchestra concert. School has now ended for the Christmas break and I've finished work too and if that wasn't enough the mini snowfall, despite it's quick disappearance, very quickly managed to send the excitement levels to new dizzying heights.
On Friday evening we went to the local shops where a festive Christmas evening of entertainment had been planned. The proceedings kicked off with a lantern procession over the bridge. This was my favourite one.
And this is my favourite girl!
We wandered around a craft fair, popped into one of the charity shops who were selling all items for £1 or less (!), bought a bag of chips for tea and we were hoping to listen to the advertised musical entertainment but because it was so very cold it was cancelled. Despite the incredibly cold temperature lots of people did attend the event and I hope they try and make it an annual event.
Yesterday was a lovely day catching up with family who came to visit. Lunch was eaten and presents were exchanged accompanied by lots of chatting and merry Christmas wishes.
Later in the afternoon S helped me to make mini gingerbread houses. She got a bit fed up with them as they were so fiddly to ice together being mini ones and so I after the first was completed I was left to finish off the rest. They tasted very nice though!
