We don’t ask for much…

… which is good.

Christmas was a bit of a wash out (literally with the weather).  Jack has been ill since school broke up and is still struggling and he gave it to me which resulted in me spending about half of Christmas in bed (and a good proportion of the time I was up building a Lego jetpack – way more complicated than necessary!).  Presents were nothing spectacular this year – Sam had a subscription to the Beano, which while it was what he wanted it was a bit difficult to put under the tree.  Jack had Fifa 14 – to replace last years Fifa 13, which no doubt will be followed by Fifa 15 next year ;).  Although I did get my picture of a goose 😀

But despite bugs and weather we still had a good time.  Christmas for us is about relaxing and enjoying each other’s company, which we have done!  Boys have been on form – lived in their onesies, happily played together and with us (we got a fair few games between us), the surprise hit present was an electronic hangman!
