May I ask how your Christmas preparations are going? I am just turning my mind to it now. I’ve written a list of gifts to buy and have started writing cards. I’m also going to be arranging for us to participate in a ‘reverse advent’ so we donate something to a nearby charity each day on the run up to December 25.
We have a growing problem in our house. I want to know if it’s one you are familiar with. It’s an issue with my daughters’ soft toys which are breeding at an uncontrollable rate.
I have a confession to make. I am a fan of the fidget spinner. When my kids aren’t around, I often find myself searching the house in an attempt to get my hands on one so I can have a go myself.
Tearing along the path on my two-wheeled scooter, I would hit the occasional bump. On doing so, the scooter and I would leap into the air. Each time I landed, I would look back to my daughter Izzy, who was a short distance behind, throw my fist into the air and shout “Oh yeah!”
After relentless badgering from the kids, I finally gave in. It was a bit late in the evening, but, yes, they could start building the LEGO kits we had just taken delivery of.
