Holidays at home when its freezing cold and raining cats and dogs have their up sides. Like the fact that it's very cosy indoors.
And it's excellent crocheting weather.
Perfect conditions for playing pirates and princesses.
The weather is excellent for reading. Our bookgroup book this month is 'The Bookseller of Kabul' by a beautiful Scandinavian woman who can speak five languages whose name momentarily escapes me. And I'm reading 'The Book Thief' by Marcus Zusak to the luthier at bedtime. Both are proving to be bloody good reads.
Oh and as for secrets. shhhhh, but I have a secret which is so awesome I can hardly believe it.
The irrespressibly excellent Pottymouthmama had a giveaway and we won! Its for a Nintendo DS and Ninjago game. Sacha is going to pop his cowl when he sees that arrive. I am not going to tell him until it gets here because I want to relish the moment of pure thrill when he opens it. That boy is not going to believe his luck.
He has a bit of a tragic DS story. Santa bought him a DS the year before last and he was in love with it, right up until the moment he lost it about 3 weeks after Christmas. Since then, he only gets DS access when his brother is feeling particularly magnanimous and he is willing to beg shamelessly, or by stealth. To win this uber cool DS and game is going to totally pop his cork!
And I won it with a fart gag.
