On New Year's day I pretty much spent most the day in bed, feeling rubbish with a new cold. The kids were all happy just playing and being at home, so it wan't a problem. Scott did very little too, but had to go back to work on Thursday 2nd.
Also that week I made a few cards with my new things, and we took all the decorations down, and gave the place a thorough dust! Phew!! Nothing nicer than de-cluttering the place!
On Friday 3rd, Harry rubbed out the 'Christmas List' which Lucy had put on the chalk board, and made his own list: Snow ball fite, Snow Angles (Angels!) and Snow Men. He is impatient for some snow, and has commented on the lack of it a few times.
The boys have been enjoying technology too - Jack on his new iPod Touch, Tom on Jack's old iPod, and that has meant that Harry can play 'Clash of Clans' on Scott's iPad, now that Tom's account isn't on there any more! I also bought Harry some Bear Grylls (explorer/survivalist) DVD's for Christmas, and a series on Mountain Climbing - all of which he has loved.
We had a nice last day. Tom spent some time at his friend William's house, and we had my nephew Ethan come over and play for a bit. For once, I wasn't all that eager to pack the kids off back to school!
