Happy New Year.

Another one eh? Where did the last one go? Arnie doesn’t remember, he slept through most of it.

The Tin Soldier.

Ah, forgot how it ended, oops. Definitely not Disney…Yes Evie it was a terrible ending…(for the soldier and the ballerina).
Sorry they melted and burned in the fire.
Evie is disgusted that a child would do that to his toys, Gruff can’t get over that the child has access to a real fire (not worrying at all…).

Dog on a mission.

Who’s taking who for a walk today Bonnie? Some days you would think she has never, ever come across another dog before! Slow down!

The unicorn.

Have I mentioned that Santa brought Evie a very big, fluffy, glow in the dark unicorn for Christmas?

Happy Christmas.

I’m hemmed in by a sea of wrapping paper, a huge fluffy glow in the dark unicorn, a talking robot, random lego and a Hadrian’s wall of toys. The kids are having a whale of a time as I’m on cleaning strike.

Hope yours was a peaceful one with lots of sprouts.

Christmas Eve.

I normally can’t get them to bed.
No you cannot got to bed yet! It’s only half past six in the evening…

Crackers.

Myles and myself have been making Christmas crackers for the kids to pull on Christmas Day. We’ve even managed to get hold of some snaps to create the bang (if they manage to pull them apart as I’ve used far too much sticky tape).

Great cake mistakes.

So when is the best time to realise that you forgot to add flour to your Christmas cake recipe?
a) Five minutes into cooking.
b) One hour into cooking.

Sing along…

…if you have Mum’s headphones and you have no idea how loud your singing is.

Put down your tea…

Stand in.

Arnie’s standing in tonight as it’s been just one of those days. Over to you Arnie, tell them the one about the time you got stuck on the roof…for two days and how me just barely pregnant with Gruff, scaled my neighbours back wall to get you down.

Wrapping paper.

Can somebody tell me how to carry rolls of wrapping paper without looking like a drunk giraffe?

Don’t blink…

Millie has told Evie and Gruff that there is a weeping angel at the top of the tree…

Santa.

Fair play, that’s a decent list, I think Santa can work with this. Although as we already have an enormous fluffy hedgehog in our house, two would be a bit of a squeeze…

Smothered.

Off to bed, feeling very sorry for myself. Bah humbug.

Gold, Frankenstein and something else.

It’s nativity time! A wonderful performance by all the children. Da iawn!

Pilfering.

Bonnie is an expert at pilfering my handbag. I really should learn by now not to leave it on the chair in the room she sleeps in when I go out.
Today’s items recovered from the pilferer’s crate were two odd gloves ( well they’re black, no one notices when I wear them and I’m sure the other matching two are in the hallway), and a hat.
Maybe tomorrow I should leave a rak of clothes for her to browse through?

Achey cakey.

Yes it’s my birthday today and I have made cake, been bought cake and have been baked cake. I am too stuffed with cake.

Tease.

Fudge is a young sheepdog and she loves to play with Bonnie in the park. When the opportunity arises, Fudge likes nothing better than to steal Bonnie’s ball and spend the next twenty minutes or so prancing around in front of her with her prize.

Chocolate…

…advent calendars are amazing. Why don’t I have one? I may have to remedy that…
