I’m trying to get the hang of the new camera; it has an incredibly bright flash which really wipes things out at close range. So i’ve been experimenting today (NOT up to standards on the blogring i know!) and i’m quite surprised by how good it is on the close up setting without flash. Much better than the old one anyway.
The girls have been away and are delighted to be back – and we are delighted to have them back. Josie missed them dreadfully and was as much work as all 4 of them in many ways. Still, it was good to have time to wrap and shop together; really enjoyed walking into town on Friday night with her in her pushchair and playing at only having one child!
We’ve had a lovely afternoon decorating the house, reading Christmas stories (so weird to have Fran reading them to us this year), doing a game they do at dancing where they clap a song for people to guess (was impressed at how good Fran was at it) and generally getting some festive spirit into the week. I’m planning on doing lots of festive stuff this week as a thank you to them for the last week or sowhere i have been so busy with bead parcels.
