Craft #20 was the most beautiful of the season.
Much easier than I imagined and smell and look really lovely. The key to this is definitely to cut out simple designs in the peel with a fruit knife yourself and then let the kids push cloves through the pith.
And i will leave you with two of my favourite quotes from my children this year….
Amelie, the endlessly irrepressible, who has this year written a note to Santa which says “hope you have a good trip and don’t need a poo on the way round”. Sigh 😆
And Josie, who was wrapping presents with me for her sisters. I wrote the “To *sister* love …” bit and told her to sign her name. As she got to the third one she looked up at me and said “Mummy, don’t you know how to write my name???”
I do love them.
Merry Christmas 🙂
