Sunday 27th December. Morden Hall Park, our local National Trust place. We needed to get out of the house after two days inside. I caught Shaun and H doing this from Big Hero 6 – love it!
Monday 28th December. My sister bought H a ChillFactor Ice Cream maker for Christmas, which we’ve been pleased with so far. After reading some comments from other bloggers, it didn’t seem to work for them, but it did for us! While the quantity was quite small, there was definitely ice cream (and sorbet the day before) in there.
Tuesday 29th December. Polesden Lacey, and of course we did Polesdenopoly as it’s fun, silly and it wasn’t too cold either. My kind of trail.
Wednesday 30th December. I think we had a lazy day. I don’t remember. I took this photo of H, as she had her hair cut and it really suited her, and I liked the lighting on the picture. When I think about how she was a year ago and how much she has grown up now, she does me proud. She loves reading (she has just finished David Baddiel’s ‘The Parent Agency‘) and has excelled at school. She is on the School Council as well as being one of the children who writes a little magazine in school too. She has made me a very proud mum – her confidence is starting to show now.
Thursday 31st December. We visited Bluebell Railway and Sheffield Park National Trust gardens, before heading home for a quiet night in, and reflection on 2015. It has been an odd year, and who knows what 2016 will bring.
