Lol – how many times have i done final shops now? Back into town today for more bits and bobs, but i’m pretty much there now. Its only relatives anyway, somehow i forgot them all!
Today has been festive TV day- Tikkabilla Nativity, The Snow Queen, Aladdin – all good fun anyway. Amelie conked out before 6 – she is full of cold but the others are okay. Maddy’s lips are all chapped and her mouth looks twice the size. The other thing that caused great hilarity was the first present which got unwrapped today. Max had bought The Alley Cats from ebay, which we both had as kids and he played it with all three big girls very successfully.
I’m now making the scrapbooks with more success but annoyingly i gave the back of my hand a whack on the dresser corner and i swear i have broken it. Its all seized up and hurtsa like hell. Great – just when i need full hand mobility for the books.
Feeling a bit more upbeat anyway. Oh yes and how weird, Fran has a big tooth all poked through behind her baby ones – it seems fairly straight (although its a bottom one which ought not to be seriously cleft affected) but its dead odd to see it there when the others are still in. She is SO excited! Mixed feelings from me really, on one hand its exciting, on another its a bit scary, on another (3 hands!) it signals the start of the next batch of cleft issues which is going to be tough on her. Not really totally got my head around the fact that her top teeth won’t come through normally if i am honest. I’m so used to her and now she’ll be different but still “different” iyswim?
Tonight we read a load more stuff – Jabberwocky AGAIN – they love that and tonight they heard it with eyes closed and then described their image to me, plus a load of others from the Lewis Carroll section of The Works 3, then Mary and the Angel, then My Naughty Little Sister goes to School.
