This year I took all the obligatory snaps of us sat by the Christmas tree, opening presents and stuffing our faces on Christmas dinner. This photo is one of my favourites though.
It paints a picture of the week between Christmas and New Year. A week when we barely flew the nest, living amongst wrapping paper, new toys and chocolate boxes.
The children were happy to smooch about playing with the goodies Father Christmas delivered, leaving me to potter and Bird to play with his new toy. As far as Shine is concerned, Bird has some work to do before he’s ready to take to the stage.
Fairy lights, tinsel and shiny baubles went some way to combat the darkest mid winter days that were dominated by lashings of wind and rain. Perfect weather really to stay inside enjoying the ordinary moments.
Farewell Christmas 2013, you were great.
Go check out some other ordinary moments with mummy daddy me.
