Children and Cars

In the past few days we have had the annual glitter and glue fest so the children could make their Christmas cards for grandparents, aunties and uncles.

We have been to the park. We haven't been to our favourite park for a while and we were there for ages.

T and S ran around together, played together, laughed together. It was joyous watching them enjoying each other's company.

G was off on Tuesday and took them all off to the cinema to see Alvin and the Chipmunks whilst I stayed at home and wrapped presents. Why oh why do I forget each year just how long this part takes?!

All good so far and then yesterday happened and there was a car issue. Not a massive one and thankfully not an expensive one and one which was sorted relatively easily. But it meant that the day was given over to getting it sorted and not a lot else was achieved which was frustrating but not the end of the world.
Especially when there is a big box of Celebrations to dig into.


  1. It's good that the weather is fine enough to get them out of the house to burn off some energy. I used to hate it when school broke up so early, much better to have them at home after Christmas when they've got their new toys to play with than before when they're just waiting for Christmas to arrive. I've got more presents to wrap this afternoon, the end is in sight now.

  2. They are great photos! We have had a fair share of car trouble here too - hopefully now sorted but it is a pain! xxx

  3. Mmmmmm, yes wrapping. I've done it in shifts this year. Enjoy your Celebrations. xx

  4. The weather looks great where you are! Sorry about the car trouble,you could do without that right now.
    Hope the presents all got wrapped. :0)
