A day spent in the house all day due to the bitter coldness of outside. -30* real feel. Brrrrr. I wanted to go out for a walk but even I couldn't summon up the enthusiasm for that temperature.
|Ice on the inside of our window|
We spent the morning playing Kingdomino. I definitely won one game and didn't come last in the others. Normally Moo plays in a team with Smallest but today we made her play on her own. I think she does better with Smallest.
|Huffle cut his hair whilst we played and made an interesting hair style before he chopped it all off!|
Moo and I did a lot of jigsaw today and the boys played plenty of FIFA. We had our leftover pizza/calzones for lunch whilst watching TheGrandTour (that's us up to date for a week now).
This afternoon we all made fresh pasta, garlic bread, pasta sauce, grilled vegetables, cheese sauce and white and milk chocolate mousse. We decided the theme for our New Years Eve party (just us five again) was Italian, based on the food. Smallest wore Huffle's ACMilan top and had a moustache. I had a green and red top and white scarf with a sunflower in my hair. Moo wore green, red and white. Smallest wore his ACMilan top and a moustache and Huffle came as Mario.
More jigsaw and FIFA while dinner was cooking.
We had crackers, wine and all our Italian food with ErosRamazotti on the IPod. It was very delicious. We finished with our mousse which was very nice.
Some clearring up then we played FiveCrowns and Pictureka! The boys watched TV before bed. Both wanted to stay up until midnight but they both went to bed at 9:45pm which isn't bad. We had some sparklers but no-one wanted to go out into the cold to do them.
The rest of us played cards. Ace2Ace (Huffle won) and Skip-Bo (Moo won). We watched Jools Holland until he reached 12midnight but in reality it was 11:30pm and then we gave up and went to bed.
HAPPY NEW YEAR xxxxxx
