The pack of Christmas snap cards we have had since T was small proved ideal. We had a couple of games with S and then a game of pairs. S was amazing at this game when she was little and would regularly beat me without me trying to lose!
We then spent a very hectic half an hour playing racing games with these mini cars.
Two simple ideas but such good fun.
Today was card writing day. From previous years I have learned to do this earlier rather than later with S. She has already received 4 cards from friends at school and I knew she would be keen to start writing hers.
Mince pies and nibbles were set on the table, to help keep the energy levels up during this strenuous task don't you know.
A girl after my own heart, before S began writing in the cards she wrote out a list.
I love a list. I seem to have several on the go myself just now, as I'm sure most others do too.
I made a start on my cards but still have a fair few to go. The ones I wrote this evening have been stashed in my new bag where they will be kept until all are complete and ready for the off.
I just couldn't resist the little robin stamp motif.
