... or should that be Christmas has passed, been and gone, and the mayhem is finally settling. We had a lovely time being with our families and we've all been so lucky with the presents we received. Harry was so much more into it this year than last Christmas, he was only 10 months then. This time round, at 22 months, he just loved opening his presents - and everyone else's too! He's turning into such a cheeky chappy, and a lovely little boy. We're going to turn his cot into a little bed for him this weekend, I can't believe this has come round so fast, he really is growing up in the blink of an eye.
But back to Christmas! I think my mum must have been surfing UKS and chatting up the lovely sponsors as she somehow found her way to a site that sells cases for the Tag-a-long and a Craft Mates caddy. I didn't ask for anything crafty for Christmas, so I'm so chuffed that not only did I get something craft-related but that I also got something really useful and nice.
Harry was spoilt rotten again, no, make that ruined! He got quite a few books (he loves books), toys and clothes, but I think if he could string a sentence together he would tell you his favourite present was a portable DVD player so he can watch some films in the car. We said we would only get him a couple of presents this year, but we saw this last minute and it was too good a bargain to miss. He's recently started watching a bit of television, he loved Monsters Inc on Christmas Day, and as we make frequent car journeys of up to an hour or more we thought he'd like this better than staring out of the window!
Here's a photo of him opening it on Christmas morning.
Anyway, I've been back at work for two days now, although I've not been feeling so good. I hope it's just a bug, it's nothing serious, just an annoying cough that keeps making me feel sick and very tired. Hopefully it will pass soon. Got another long weekend, although we have no plans other than to pop into town and check out the sales, spend the vouchers we got for Christmas, etc.
Anyway, hope you all have a good one. Happy New Year!
