I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas with lots of pudding and presents and family time spent together. I must say that even though I enjoyed the excitement and rush of Christmas day I am relieved that it is all over for another year. There was so much I had planned that I just didn't have time for, so next year I plan to start my preparations much earlier.
Here are a few Christmas day moments of my two littlest ones. My biggest one likes to keep his identity a secret. Here is Lottie intent on enjoying a delicious portugese custard tart.
And here is Mister Monster in the aftermath of a green Christmas lolly that some thoughtful relative gave him to chew on.
And I just had to share my most favourite Chrismas present of all. It was given to Lottie but she has to share it with me. Any Charlie and Lola fans will know how delightful Lauren Child is, and this book is no exception. It is sure to become a bedtime favourite. It is spellbinding!
And last of all a little pic of the secret santa package I sent to Kylie which arrived safely just in time for Christmas. She has been very busy moving house so I hope she doesn't mind me posting a few pics. There was also a bundle of ric rac in the package but I forgot to put it in the photograph.
