I just wanted to note that the Christmas break was fantastic.
The Christmas Nativity Play at the local school was touching. The little angel singing “hold this moment in your hand” caused Doting Dad to have a bit of an emotional moment (until this was cut short by the little man sticking his finger up his nose and scratching his boy bits).
Helping at the Christmas Party and suprising the little man was great. Getting the little monsters to eat their grapes by reverse psycology was very satisfying.
A trip to Belfast to the in-laws and a fab Christmas lunch at my brother-in-laws. The little man loved it and really loved spending the day with his cousins.
Second Christmas lunch was taken with Nanny and Great Nanny at Nanny’s house. Great Nanny just loved watching the little man open his presents and playing. The mobile camper van went down extremely well!
New Year’s Eve was spent with the little man’s God Mother in the splendid Wiltshire countryside. As always this fabulous “Margo” cook laid on a feast to remember. The barbequed beef was delicious, but this did cause some weird beef dreams.
The running, cycling and swimming are very difficult at present due to the extra weight gained through Christmas!
