Monday: Biscuit went to school in the howling wind and rain and Wiggles and I went to her little friend Em's 1st Birthday at Tilly's house. It was lovely! There was bunting, Buck's Fizz and amazing cake! Wiggles was only a teeny bit naughty when she pulled Em's hair, but I'm putting it down to excitement...
Monday afternoon we collected Biscuit from school and she and Wiggles ate party biscuits. Mrs Robinson and little Hank came over to say hello and all three children enjoyed playing cars inside Dad's Land Rover.
Tuesday: Wiggles and I went to baby group where Wiggles posed for some Christmas photographs taken by my lovely friend Dee. Tuesday after school Biscuit had ballet and came home with tales of graceful new moves learnt. She came home to a big hearty lasagne and ate and ate and ate!
Wednesday: work for me, school for Biscuit and Wiggles and Gran spent the day together. Someone stole Wiggles' special squash cup after it was accidentally forgotten at a coffee morning. Gran went back within half and hour and searched high and low, but nothing turned up. Poor Gran was very worried.
Friday: work, ugh. And curry, so not all bad.
Saturday: we completed a collection of geocaches we'd been slowly finding over a long time. The last one was called The Mothership. Biscuit "found" three in total and was very excited. On the way home we called into the supermarket and bought advent calendars for the girls. We had Chinese food for tea with Mum and Dad. Mr Husband and I were still hungry later and scoffed crisps secretly. Wiggles had croup and made a heartbreaking noise like a seal pup all night.
Sunday: we all went for lunch at a local pub. It didn't go well. Wiggles screamed and a fat-bottomed condescending woman tutted. Biscuit was a little sweetheart and made us all laugh by producing a silver coaster from her bag of toys, which she delicately slid beneath her lemonade glass without a word!
