  1. Had to laugh when I saw your copy of Five Go Gluten Free - as long time Famous Five readers my Mother and I were giggling over Five Go on a Strategy Away Day in a local bookshop while Christmas shopping last week, and I even thought of you at the time!

  2. This Boxing Day we filed a police report for the things that got stolen in the break-in while we were at Christmas Day church. Sigh.

  4. Let me add the good stuff that happened in our house on Boxing Day. Listening to new CD (Colin Buchanan / Karen Pang - a big hit!) Turkey sandwiches. Reading new Christmas gift picture books (lots of Mem Fox.) Loading up the new-to-us Kindle (second hand from grandpa.) Eating (ahem) lots of Christmas candy. Drinking cider. Meeting our back neighbours. Speaking to my elderly interstate parents on the phone. Cutting off the plaster from my 5yo son's broken arm. Lots of good things, Jeanne! - Bec


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
