22 December 2010
Sun, rain, storms, rainbows. It's all go around here lately.
The children have finished school for the year and are spending their days bouncing on the trampoline, playing soccer, indulging in endless vicious games of Monopoly and watching movies (the new Narnia film at the movies, and dvds here at home).
Son #3 recently displayed a fleeting enthusiasm for cooking and together we spent a day making gingerbread, apple sponge and something else but my brain is fried from Christmas shopping and I can no longer recall what.
The Christmas shopping is complete as of this morning. I thought I was already finished (the kids really only get one or two presents each) but the eldest cheekily reminded me (out of #3's earshot) about the stockings. My god the stockings, they will be the death of me. Gone are the days when I could fill them with chalk, playdough and new coloured pencils.
In other news, I made rice paper rolls for dinner the other day and am still feeling the glow. Another one to add to my rather limited repertoire.
Happy summer [or winter, for you northern types] solstice to you!
