Thought for the Day: Of Mice and Men
What to do? Well, when life throws you a snowball.... make snowmen! There's nothing for it but to join the kids and the dogs around here, have lots of fun and make the most of this highly unseasonal seasonal weather! This jolly seven year old high fellow was knocked together in no time and I reckon's he's our best ever! Part of our limited food store has been put to use to make this fellow's nose but might have to be retrieved if our veg box order never makes it here!
My best laid plans for a family Christmas could be well and truly scuppered. The Essex contingent have already wisely dipped out and who knows if everyone else will be able to make it from Brighton, Somerset and yes, even the other side of Haldon Hill. The already complex exercise of shopping in anticipation of frantic food preparation has got even knottier. Some might view the whole scenario as disasterous but for me, I prefer to see it as an exercise in acceptance and adaptibility.
