We've seen the big man in red - Anya asked for a Wii game, Bucks a new tie (strange child) and Euan a shooting gun for shooting people with (a worrying child!) - None of these things were on their original lists so Father Christmas will have to brave the shops once more!
We had a lovely visit to Clearwell Caves with a large chunk of my family - the oldest child is becoming secretly agnostic over Santa so a trip to the garden centre grotto no longer cuts the mustard. The caves had an amazing display set up based around a lovely story about a polar bear, the best thing for the big children was that Dr Who was filmed there. They ran ahead looking for the weeping angels, I think they must have been scared off by the noisy children.
Somebody please rescue these children from the 1980s!
Slightly less scared than last year but still not happy!
We've finished the show season, costumes not too challenging this year. Euan was a soldier (made by a friend) for his gym display and a BLACK (his choice and says everything!) sheep for the nativity. Patch was a shepherd and we just needed a christmasy headband for Anya's carol concert. Last day of school today, bring on the mince pies, chocolates and mulled wine.......
PS - trialling the photo editor thingy on my new phone can you tell?!
