Happy Boxing Day.

A bit of a lie in. Normal breakfast. All the boys watched Stoke (drew 1-1). All the girls watched Leicester (lost 2-1) until the Stoke game wasn't working so we forfeited our game and played three games of skip-bo whilst watching for the updates. I have to say that Moo won else she will be mardy. (Good old Leicester word there. I am getting ready for my visit by re-learning my local dialect).

Moo had a bath, Smallest built his BrickHeadz Capt.JackSparrow with a little assistance from me and Small built some more of his NanoBlock Eater Island Statues.

Small got a sandwich toaster for Christmas from Moo so we all had a toasted cheese sandwich from it (except for Huffle who is scarred for life with cheese sandwiches isn't he Grandma?). They were very nice and now Small has learnt how to make them which is a very good skill.

This afternoon we all played Blink which is a very quick card game for two people. We also played Rubiks Battle and Stinky Pig. Small read one of his new books while the rest of us played Newmarket using Chocolate coins. I won hurrah (eventually, the winnings were getting higher and higher). We opened the quality Street and shortbread YUMYUM while we were playing too.

Later on we all went out and cleared and salted the drive and paths. Hard work. The temperature today is -12* (real feel -22*). We also threw Smallest in the snow and covered him up!

While Huffle went for a shower, the boys played on FIFA and we all had leftover dinner. This evening we spent forever trying to sort out Smallest's helicopter. It suddenly wouldn't fly very well. We searched the Internet and took it apart and it is charging. Hopefully it isn't broken.

The boys went to bed and we watched the film Snatched. Very silly.
