Moo made bumpy custard for our News Years Eve trifle. It wasn't lumpy, it was just thick and hard to cool and stir at the me time (well that's what Moo said anyway!). Moo and I escaped the house this morning to fetch a few bits for our party later. We left the boys of the house putting together a Pass the Parcel. Our errands were to post a letter, get Moo a book (unfortunately the thrifty shop was closed and we ended up taking advantage of Senior Day at Shoppers Drug Mart. We also needed to pick up some food for tonight and tomorrow.
|It snowed again|
At home we all had lunch and started a film. Today we chose The Avengers The Age of Ultron. We knew that the man was coming to fix the oven this afternoon and we named him 'Oven Man' (a superhero) and were going to hand him a cape and over-the-trousers-pants. We did tell him and he thought it was funny.
We watched a bit more film and then as we were all starting to fall asleep, we stopped it to prepare dinner and look for costumes as our party suddenly became a Fancy Dress Party. (We didn't invite anyone, it was just us five). We got our costumes on and after our photos, we played Pass the Parcel.
Of course, we had the obligatory forfeits. Put Smallest's pants on your head, shout out the door "I am the pickle King", gargle Old MacDonald, do the Bottom Dance....................
The boys played with the prize of a bouncy ball and the rest of us made dinner. Tonight we had Macaroni Cheese (the boys request), Salad, Garlic Bread and Chicken with Trifle for dessert. It was all very good.
We taught the boys how to play Charades and Manchester and played until their bedtimes. The grown ups drank and stayed up until.............. (Probably not until 12 but you never know, sometimes we make it, sometimes we don't).
HAPPY NEW YEAR
