I wasn't very well on Xmas Eve - another dose of the dreaded gastritis that seems to be plaguing me at the moment. To keep the kids out of my hair Thomas suggested they make Xmas goodies for eating over the festive period...'Make little Xmas elf hats out of marzipan' he suggested. He even gave them an Ikea leaflet as a guide. Somehow we have ended up with plates of mini elf-penises to offer all those who drop by to wish us a Merry Xmas.
Life never turns out quite the way you plan it when little kids are involved.
