On the Eighth Day of Christmas
we were going to make some *sparkly* Christmas Bikkies using the Gingerbread House recipe and some silver balls and various sprinkles b-u-t we took a ridiculous amount of time to clean up the Weekend Devastation - couldn't find the carpet ya know - and so we grabbed some incredibly speshal ICED ANIMALS bikkies at the shops instead -
(that we all remember the colours and shapes and *smell* of from our infancy!) for a *tweet* instead - cos we're trying to WAIT to eat The House a bit closer to Christmas!
AND we gave our first REINDEER away to Olly (who came to play after school) and his sister - i really want to pass on "the joy of giving" to our children - they were so excited about the baby hats to Haiti - but candy canes are harder to give away!! funny that.
