Thank you for all the get well wishes - they worked temporarily but then this week they wore off. We had a big old family Christmas planned - the first time in years we would have almost all been together on Christmas Day. Unfortunately the world had other plans and as a result of illness both at our house and at my poor sister's, we'll be at home. While I am currently well, I am tired - I wrote down the dosage to give Tall Small this morning as her temperature hit 39C AGAIN and walked downstairs and couldn't remember whether or not I'd actually given her the medicine.
Still, there is an end in sight, we hope, and in between alternating doses of Calpol and Calprofen the Smalls are in good spirits. And we had a delivery of heating oil today (thank you Team Flitwick!), and Mr DC braved the supermarket so we will have a proper dinner tomorrow instead of fishfingers.
Before it all kicked off, last weekend we had a lovely party for little people and decorated a small village of gingerbread houses and made sparkling crystal snowmen and Christmas trees.

So, there's a lot to be grateful for, and we will hang our stockings up this evening and have a lovely time tomorrow, albeit not as planned. I hope you're all well, and happy, and that your Christmas is really, really wonderful.
