Frozen Fog Here in The Shires

It is that time of year again when the frost bears down on us and that frozen fog gives the woodland a magical, enchanted feel.

The week so far has consisted of breakfasts, some baking and dinner times really. The children are enjoying their chocolate advent calendar’s (thank you Sindy) and the usual slops and spills that accompany their breakfast cereal routine, plus there’s been the occasional chocolate treats of Dadda’s candies that were left over from the preschool pamper event!

This afternoon sees Daddy and Dadda attending the children’s Nativity play at 2pm at their school, for which the children have been practicing their lines for a number of weeks now. No easy feat as Amritsar with her great reading skills As she was chosen to be one of the two narrators. Tara with friends Pip and Harriet are playing the three wise men and our little ones are supporting in the very important role of the three Camels. Well, I never! It was a donkey and a couple of sheep back in my day!

A bit of a falling out this morning with the whatsapp group for Tara and Amritsar’s year. It seems that Dadda’s donation of ‘Dadda’s Jam’ was not put in the year 2’s Christmas Hamper, seemingly not deemed ‘Christmassy’ enough perhaps! It’s funny isn’t it? When giving, one doesn’t seek gratitude, but you would hope that your gift actually got included in the request!

Anyhow – that’s country life for you, here in ‘The Shires’.

I just opened the first Christmas card of the season, so I guess that deserves a mention. Thank you dear friend Andy from Winchester. Seasons greetings Xx
