Create Your Own
After beating off that winter virus which left me unable to do much but lay on the sofa while listening to the girls kill each other I decided it was some time for some Christmas fun.
So we baked some biscuits and then iced them. Loads of sticky fun.

I knew there was a good reason against taking your youngest to Mother and Toddler groups. Amy and myself have been struck down with the mother of all lurgies.
Yesterday morning I went out early into town to get some silver shoes for Ana, as the school had dumped it on my the previous evening through that wonderful medium the home school diary, that she would be requiring 'fancy' shoes to wear with her fairy costume for the school play for Friday dress rehearsal.
This is the same flipping play that they have been rehearsing daily since, oh I don't know, June!
So why wait until Wednesday to tell me she needs shoes?
Anyway twittering on as usual, it was quite cold, misty and frosty that morning and I noticed my chest was feeling tight and breathing was an effort. I shrugged it off as my Asthma playing up due to the cold damp air. Myself and Amy were completely fine until about 10pm last night when I was struck down with a raging fever and thumping headache.
Amy didn't fair too well ever and we both experienced a night of fitful sleep. Of course I use the word sleep in the loosest possible sense.
Today we have existed mainly laying on the sofa watching Playhouse Disney and only moving to drink, pee or take medicine.
But look on the bright side I have at least 12 days to get over it

Amy doesn't eat, full stop. She has been known to survive entire weeks on condiments and carpet fluff.
Imagine our joy if you will when upon a recent cafe visit we discovered that Amy likes cherry tomatoes.
So we added a punnet to this weeks shopping and yesterday a sliced a few in half to put with her lunch of two slices of ham and a slice of chicken roll. I was pleased when she ate up all of the tomatoes and some of the ham. Woohoo, I've cracked it.
Or so I thought, whilst upstairs tackling both of the girls bedrooms Amy got into the fridge and helped herself to the remaining tomatoes. All of them!
I am now dealing with the very runny and very smelly fall out. I didn't think poo came in that shade of red
