This year Daughter 2 once again sent us a parcel full of 24 little gifts for Advent. So kind.
For example... These were specifically for Mr Life and me.
But on Fridays, when the children are here from lunchtime onwards, her parcels are really for them. For example, last Friday's gift contained decorate-them-yourself penguin biscuits. One penguin somehow turned out to be beakless; we don't think the beak got eaten mid-assembly but anyway it had to have a substitute, a chocolate snowball.
Today's gift was a little polar bear ornament. Grandson cuddles two toy polar bears in bed so this one went home with him to join them.
There's lots still to do, but at least the tree's up.
