This morning there was XBox, table tennis, jigsawing, breakfast. For Lunch we made burgers and then filled a bag for an afternoon out.
This afternoon we went sledging at our local farm and golf course. We never go near the main slope anymore being as we are sooooo sociable. We go to other side and create our own piste and runs. This takes a bit of doing but Huffle and the boys just get straight on it. There was plenty of silliness today. Lots of falling and crashing but no-one hit the tree which is at the very bottom of the slope we chose today.
Injuries included a squashed Smallest when Moo fell on top fo him, a bumped Moo nose from when she fell on op of Smallest, a Smallest hurt back when he went over a bump and caught his back on the side of the sledge, everyone with sore legs and bruised bodies. But all in all we were pretty injury free. Although we didn't have the steepest of slopes, the snow was very thick and it was exhausting trudging back up the hill.
At the top of the hill we made a shelter for those wishing to sit and get their breath back. We also took a generous helping of our own hot chocolate, fuelled with with extra melted chocolate chips and marshmallows and accompanied by some lovely English chocolate later. Much fun was had by all.
On the way home we lost a windscreen wiper and we had to stop on the road for Huffle to walk back to find it. I think I need a new one.
Back home, things were dried and hung to dry and we decided the theme of tonight's New Years Eve Party was a Pyjama one. Everyone donned their cosy pj's and we put some air fries on to cook while the boys watched a bit of TV before we went out in the cold and lit some sparklers.
We topped the Trifle Moo made yesterday with Festive New Year Sprinkles and ate it after our hot baguette and fries. Very yummy.
We watched The Grand Tour and Smallest went to bed. Small stayed up until 9:30 but said he could stay up much longer (his eyes said differently). Huffle and I fell asleep briefly before even Smallest went to sleep but we managed to stay up util 11:30pm watching Jools Hollands Hootananny. Moo went to bed just before. We were all very tired.
HAPPY NEW YEAR (balloon emojis).
