Christmas been and gone. Happy New Year

Christmas dinner ready -  actually just the starters and one of the desserts is on these photos.

We arrived in England in the middle of the night the 23rd of December. Our flight was delayed. BOOO!!!!

But apart from delayed flights to and also from England we had an amzing Christmas. Lots and lots of presents, amazing food, football, shopping a bit, pub lunch, seeing friends and family.

Baby cousin was bigger and thought her big cousins were funny. 
The little man went with his daddy, Papa, uncle D. to see Aston Villa. 42.000 people. They won and the little man (though not an Aston Villa fan) was impressed.
Pub Lunch. I had a pulled pork burger and fat chips. Very yummy!
Firework from our backgarden in Denmark.

We got back home just before midnight on th 30th of December. Just over 24 hours later we shouted Happy New Year! And watched the firework.

The Princess on stage

The princess takes singing and drama classes at a Musical School nearby. She loves it and we love watching the shows they do. Last weekend she rehearsed for many hours. Saturday and Sunday afternoons they performed. Here's two pictures from the actually show and two from the many hours of rehearsals.


It was a great perfomance they all did and they all looked so happy and they enjoyed very much.


 Rehearsing the songs before the show.


A chat and a laugh in one of the 5 minutes breaks during rehearsals.

Now there's a break over Christmas and New Year. 2nd week in Januar they start up again. Tomorrow is last day of school and tomorrow is also when we're off to England.

Every morning

- there's a little treat in the draw for each of the diglots (never for the parents) just a little gummibear or a caramel. Not once has the little Elf that sorts it forgotten. Amazing eh'?
It's my favourite Christmas decoration.

Which Christmas decoration are your favourite?

Here's a picture of our new arrived Christmas tree.

December, Christmas tree, Christmas Market and a hat to wear throughout the month

The little man with his Christmas hat he will be wearing all December.

It's now December. We have attended the only Christmas party at school which was held on the 1st of December. We've been to the Christmas Market in town and we have yet to watch a Christmas film.

The tween (formerly called the princess in my blog posts... tween is what she is now and princesses are so last season or something like that) is rehearsing a lot these days with her musical school. They're performing the weekend before Christmas and just 4 days before we leave for England. We're very much looking forward to seeing the show.

The little man is back in the school chess club and loving it. He played against his daddy yesterday and 4 moves was all it took to win. Well, the daddy 'wasn't quite ready' apparently but that's no excuse. The little man beat me twice but you don't hear me complain. He's just better at chess than his mummy.

The weather here is cold, frosty and sunny today. A lovely Sunday - perfect for the daddy and little man to play footy outside.

Oooh and the Fairy delivered our Christmas tree in the night. Very magical! We've decorated the tree now and it's very pretty. Pictures can be found here on my Instagram.

When the children do chores

The little man had arranged Teddy and Doggy neatly when he did his bed this morning.

Our children do a few things to help around the house. They make their bed every morning before we leave for school. They put their plates away after meals. They take the bin out and they keep their rooms tidy. They make sure their school bags are ready and put them out the night before. They probably do more some weeks but mostly it's this. The little man just does it whereas the tween aka 'the princess' does too, but with a bit of huffing and puffing.

Hopefully this will help them when they leave home. Maybe the huffing and puffing will also stop.

"I would not be a very inspiring disabled person" my husband/my soulmate/father of our children said!

Me and the little man on Pokemon hunt. Well, not me really but the little man is. I'm just hanging around and watching him catch them.

Response to the headline is that I am a very inspiring disabled person which is why I couldn't stop laughing at my husband's very honest statement. My statement on the other hand might be slightly big-headed. The husband and I were laughing about it all the way home in the car - the kids were not impressed with their parents.

We had been out for dinner last night as the little man had read 10,000 pages so we celebrated at the local Pizzaria. The conversation was on the way home from there. I think the princess was especially relieved it was in the car and not the restaurant where we decided to laugh our heads off.
Yummy pizza for dinner yesterday at our local lovely Pizzaria. 

Today is Sunday and we have nothing on. Well, the little man is getting ready for a walk around the neigbourhood soon - for another Pokemon hunt. No sun today though, but that doesn't stop a serious hunter.
