Yesterday I ...
went Christmas shopping twice,
fiddled with my camera
to show only the red on our Christmas tree,
watched in horror as my
bought a kit containg 500 water bombs;
but then later enjoyed the colours
spread out on the sofa;
cooked up a delicious
pumpkin and caramelized onion flan for dinner
and baked gluten-free gingerbread.
iced with a thin coat of royal icing,
and left overnight to soften a little,
I declare them a success!

It hasn't been the three days I anticipated
for the end of term,
only one girl at school one day out of three
(proper school lessons are not happening,
but Laura had originally planned to go anyway)
- there have been dramas and hard times
... but I'm glad I took these photos
to remind me that it wasn't all bad,
and some of it was very good!
