Family


A large chocolate coin - not yet eaten - and another tree on the advent calendar.


 A bookmark for her. So adult.


We played "Articulate".


Here are the offspring (including Volume 2) plus Daughter-in-Law.


Look at those eyelashes.


He didn't think he should wear a hat indoors.


"If you go on playing with your phone," I said to my nephew, "I'll put you in my blog." So he hid it.

Later we got out all my mum's treasures - jewellery and trinkets and my dad's medals and her dad's medals and the box that my granny's father made for her and so on - and the children all chose various mementoes. It was sad but lovely.

Eleven and a half people use a lot of plates and cups in the course of a day.

Oh, I love that magnet! You could buy some of the matching fabric and make her a quilt to go with it......best wishes to you and your family, Isabelle, for a happy, peaceful and hopeful Christmas.

It all sounds perfect .
(Perhaps , in your house as in ours , every cup of tea involves three mugs , four teaspoons and the nutcrackers ? )
