A hiatus within a hiatus?
I’ve misplaced my laptop. I put it “somewhere safe”. It will turn up. These things always do.
I started a post on Dec 19th that I’ll let lie since it wasn’t that profound anyway.
In the intervening weeks I’ve done Christmas things – Christmas concerts (small children singing and dancing! :’D), Christmas food (toooo much food!), visitors, fires, candles! Christmas presents! Some handmade – I bound journals for both my boyos. We made gingerbread houses (late but better than not!) We went out to sled and skate and visit the local historic village. In short everything the season is supposed to be.
Some things were obviously different.
But the great thing about having kids is that even when we weren’t particularly feeling that festive we upped our game to make sure they still had a wonderful time. “Fake it ’til you make it” at it’s best.
And they did.
