Boxing Day

It was time to split up the family today!  Dave and JackJack headed off to Hertfordshire to see Dave’s parents, whilst the rest of us went back to Nana and Grandpa’s for further eating and merriment. Poor JackJack was hysterical when we left (“I want Mummy, I want to go with Mummy” etc)…

When we arrived, we were met by a shocking sight; “someone” had stolen a chocolate bauble from the Christmas tree and nibbled it, leaving copious evidence…Leo used his detective kit from Santa to investigate…


We were joined at N&G’s by Uncle Ben, Auntie Anne, Auntie Jay and Uncle Stephen.  We did a good deal of eating and drinking, as well as board games and a short musical session around the piano (thanks, Uncle S for playing!!).

Santa had brought Francecsa French skipping elastic, so I took the opportunity to teach her and the boys how to play…it was all the rage when I was at primary school and I can’t believe that I have never seen it at their school.  Jamie and me also played “Pass the Pigs” and he couldn’t believe that I used to play it when I was little.  Of course in those days, we only had stones and a stick to play with….Image

It was all too much for Uncle Ben (although he wasn’t to only one to catch 40 winks…)


Dave got home about 45 minutes after us with JackJack asleep on his shoulder.  They have had a very busy day as well…
