28th December 2017
We’ve had a lovely Christmas with Mum and Dad. Lottie and Dylan played happily, I’ve taught Lottie the basics of Uno, and we’ve all eaten way too much! Boxing Day was fun too – friends came over and we had a long walk in the woods before heading home for more games.
Christmas morning worked well too. James came over for an hour or so to give the children their presents and we had a lovely time watching them laugh and laugh. Of course, it’s never quite perfect as the card from him was signed from Amelia too. I wanted to stick it in the bin but Lottie was adamant that it had to go up in her bedroom. I know I have to put them first but it’s not pleasant for me all of the time. But, it’s a small wrinkle in the big scheme of things and everything else worked really well. The children are now with James, so I will clear up the house, take a long bath, and plan my night out with Ellie for tomorrow night. We’re heading into London for once and I can’t wait!
