Despite a house full of pre Christmas illness and antibiotics, kind acts of friendship help me keep a hold of the festive spirit.

I apply the motto 'less is more' to many things in life, but definately not to baubles on the Christmas tree!

There is a history to this little angel, my Mum had her as a decoration when she was little, we used to have her on our tree when I was younger and now she takes pride of place on my eldest daughter's tree in her bedroom.  She only has one wing and the sparkle wore off her halo a long time ago, but we love her and couldn't leave her in her box at this time of year.

I think the lights are my favourite decoration at Christmas time, they make our home feel warm and glowing.  White ones are so elegant and tasteful, but I have to admit to liking coloured ones too with old fashioned petal shades!

I love the weaning stage of baby's development - making up pots of mushed up vegetable, just have to hope that baby will like to eat it!

It's that time of year again where tinsel is always being used for something around the house and the girls seem to permenantly have specks of glitter on their faces!

I have a New Year's Resolution - one month early - to return to regular blogging!  Today was the day to send in costumes for the reception class nativity.  I'm so gald my little one was picked to be an angel, I shall have tissues at the ready for the performance next week!
