I’m still reading blogs....I’m just not “interacting” as much as I like to. I am sure it is a reaction to feeling well, and being able to be involved in lots of Christmas activities. Last year I was an observer from the sidelines. This year it has been so wonderful to make a Christmas cake, shop and wrap presents, bake, make mincemeat, go to nativity performances ( even if one of the schools I visited allowed their KS2 performance of every single song from Mary Poppins to go on a bit ! ) etc etc.

So, I intend to get back to blogging properly soon....reading, commenting and being involved in the lives of all the people, whose blogs I love to read. However, until then, just a very brief picture blog of a few important moments during the last few weeks.
|Izzie in one of her Christmas outfits|
|This chutney didn't last long|
|My grandmother's rolling pin, mum's lemon squeezer which came free with a packet of Omo in 1958, and 2 of my cousin Margaret's basic cook books, which contain everything anyone ever needs to know about baking.|
|Baby Flynn with his new hat and giraffe, presents from Jess, crocheted by one of her friends on her teaching course.|
|One very happy nana with Liam and Izzie|
|Dexter and Clark, allowed to dismantle the gingerbread house, as they don't like Christmas pudding...or trifle.|
|A really happy little boy....Clark, who did nothing but smile and laugh, all over the holiday.|
|Santa left a footprint. His reindeers also left some poo ( peppermint creams covered in chocolate) but Izzie refused to open any presents until the poo had been cleared up).|
I hope you all have had as good a Christmas as we did... and that 2014 is excellent for all of us.
