Yesterday, when we weren't turning the children into icicles...We shopped at Croots for our last bits of Christmas dinner, had a fantastic chille for lunch with Em and Chris, and then the older girls went out with Martin for a while (and came back with chocolate, which is being saved for making real hot chocolate next time we take a winter walk). We started some more paper lanterns, and did more glittering of paper trees. Other ordinary marvelous events include stories, cosy blankets, family art time, and a wonderful parcel came from Gina (how utterly gorgeous everything is, you know us so well - as you can see, Jenna co-opted the scarf immediately for our disastrous walk)!Today I have made felt "paper" chains, more Christmas pudding, and glittery bath bombs. We also dried some orange slices for the (blissfully overdecorated) tree.Tomorrow, fudge and bath melts!
