Lately...
















A few pictures from the last week or so. We've all had a horrible sickness bug - one of us after the other, so there has been lots of time spent at home. It was actually quite nice to spend a couple of mornings with my girl. We painted and glued Christmassy pictures inspired by Pinterest and decorated cupcakes.

In between we finally bought and decorated our tree and I'm pretty much finished with the present buying and the wrapping! The kids went back to school in time for their Christmas parties and I just made it to Archie's Nativity - I felt soo ill but there was no way I was going to miss seeing my boy as a king! He did such a good job too - and I loved how when they told of Mary and Joseph going to Bethlehem on a Donkey he added  'coz they couldn't get there by train... and they couldn't get there by helicopter.'

We also managed a little walk along the beach too, It felt good to get out in the lovely sunshine and fresh air after being cooped up inside. The boy was most pleased with his find of a broken paintbrush which he used to hammer pieces of driftwood.

The kids are super excited about Christmas now they have finished for the holidays - because it is only 4 more sleeps!! I'm going to take a little blogging break over Christmas while they are at home. I'll be around on Instagram and will be having a good catch up of everyone else's blogs too!

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, I'll be back in the new year. xxx

  8. Oh poor you, that's not much fun. Hope you're all feeling completely better now. The cakes are wonderful. Nothing like cupcakes decorated by children. I'm hoping to do a gingerbread house with mine. A bit ambitious I know! Glad you got to see the nativity, it is indeed one of the most special moments of the school year. I hope you all have a great Christmas and a very happy New Year.
