Gradually equilibrium is being restored.
We spent yesterday relaxing and not doing much at all. There were a few strops from tired children, but by the evening we were all feeling much better.
Here's Sam reading the 'How to talk to girls' section from his Dangerous Book for Boys. Josie is listening carefully before offering her opinion on its accuracy.
I bought Toby a pasta machine for Christmas, so we broke it out last night and feasted on fresh tagliatelle with the last shreds of the Christmas ham in a cream and mushroom sauce.
Tonight the children are away but I think we'll have a fairly quiet one; there's a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge and if we're feeling really wild we can always stroll over to the pub for a couple of drinks later on.
I'll leave the knitting round up until the New Year has started, so until then, have a good one and here's to a happy and peaceful 2007 for us all. Cheers!
