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.
